Dirk Kuyt preserved Liverpool's 14-month unbeaten home league record, but it is probably not enough to save their title dreams after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Manchester City.

City had swept into the lead early in the second half when Craig Bellamy scored against his former club.

Kuyt grabbed his ninth goal of the season to save a point with 12 minutes left, but the draw leaves Liverpool seven points behind leaders Manchester United with just 12 games left.
