Tevez rescues point for City at Anfield

Manchester City twice had to come from behind to salvage a point after an enthralling 2-2 draw with Liverpool at Anfield.

Despite a bright opening by the Barclays Premier League champions, Martin Skrtel opened the scoring with a thunderous first half-header.  Brendan Rodgers's side improved thereafter but were pegged back by Yaya Toure's 63rd-minute poached equaliser after Liverpool had failed to clear their lines.

Within three minutes the hosts had restored their lead thanks to a long-range Luis Suarez free-kick but another defensive error, this time by Skrtel, enabled Carlos Tevez to latch on to a loose back pass and score his 100th goal in English football.

Arsenal were held to their second successive goalless draw after a hard-fought contest against Stoke City.

The north Londoners, who deployed Vito Mannone in goal with Wojcech Szczesny sidelined with a rib injury, battled hard at the Britannia Stadium and earned 11 corners and a number of free-kicks but were unable to find a breakthrough against a typically obdurate Stoke rearguard.

Tony Pulis's side were good value for their second point of the campaign and but for better finishing by Jonathan Walters might even have earned a narrow home victory.
