Philippe Coutinho dispossessed Vincent Kompany in the Manchester City half, and it started the break. He touched to Raheem Sterling who picked out Jordan Henderson outside the corner of the City penalty area. Henderson took a moment to collect his thoughts before poking towards the top of the box and unleashing a stunning strike which left Joe Hart with no chance and rippled the back of the net.

Manchester City has since equalized through Edin Dzeko before the half-hour mark.
