The ESPN FC crew identify the elements leading to Liverpool's current rise in the Premier League table.

Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville claimed Manchester City should be "embarrassed" by how easy they made it for Liverpool on Sunday.

Neville, who is now part of the England coaching set-up, was critical of the Premier League champions for the way they allowed Liverpool to dominate in midfield during their 2-1 win at Anfield.

And he blamed Manuel Pellegrini's team for their inability to learn the lessons of previous games and seasons.

"If I was a Manchester City player, I'd be embarrassed...
