Roberto Mancini's ailing Blues must pass one of the toughest tests of their high-pressure season at Anfield in a fortnight's time if they are to reach the Carling Cup Final.

City's second cup defeat in four days at the Etihad Stadium is not a mortal blow, but the second leg of this semi-final represents a big demand on the manager's stretched resources.

And after Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard's first-half spot kick proved enough for a first-leg win over a side that had been scoring for fun, the odds mightily favour the Reds.

Mancini could have been forgiven for muttering "told you so" as his makeshift team struggled to make any genuine impact on Kenny Dalglish's efficient operators.
