Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish believes the manner of their performances against both Manchester clubs is an indicator of the progress being made at Anfield.

Sunday's 1-1 draw against 10-man Manchester City may have been the fourth successive time they have been held at home but that does not really tell the full story. Having gone behind to Vincent Kompany's 31st-minute goal they equalised within two minutes when Charlie Adam's shot was turned past Joe Hart by Joleon Lescott.

From there, most of the attacking was done by the team in red and had it not been for England goalkeeper Joe Hart, Liverpool would have inflicted City's first Barclays Premier League defeat of the season. It was a similar story just over a month ago when Manchester United were the visitors and Dalglish can see the positives, saying: "We have played both Manchester clubs here now and we have walked away a little bit disappointed we have only take one point off each."
