Liverpool draw with Manchester City, Mancini blamed Liverpool for Balotelli's send off

Balotelli argues with Mancini after the red card
The quest for the premier league title becomes more exciting as Manchester City draw with Liverpool to maintain their lead of 5 points over the champions Manchester United.
Captain Vincent Kompany headed at David Silva's corner to score the opening goal for Manchester City in 30 minutes. Just two minutes later Liverpool equalised when defender Joleon Lescott wrongfooted Joe Hart on Adam's shot from 25 yards.
Mario Balotelli was sent off on 82 minutes for putting his forearm into Skrtel's face as they contested for a high ball.
Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini said that Liverpool's players tried to 'provoke' a red card from Balotelli.
"Mario has to pay attention because there are many players who will try to provoke him," he said.
“My impression is the referee gave a free kick and didn’t want to give the yellow card, but he did after all the Liverpool players went there.”
 A door was reported to be broken by the striker in the City dressing room after he was sent off. "If he damaged the door, he will pay for it, just like his house," Mancini said.
