Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini was satisfied with their point earned at Liverpool.

City had taken the lead through Vincent Kompany's 31st-minute header but within two minutes Liverpool equalised when Charlie Adam's shot was deflected past Joe Hart by Joleon Lescott.

"I am happy for the boys because in the last 10 minutes we conceded two or three chances and Joe saved an important point," said Mancini.

"I think we played three days ago in Naples and there was a difference from us and Liverpool because they were fresh and we were not 100%.

"It was important to play a good game and put in a good performance and we tried to win but this ground is not easy because Liverpool are a strong team."
