Mark Hughes believes Manchester City deserved to defeat Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.[LNB] City - who have won away only once this season - took the lead at Anfield as former Liverpool player Craig Bellamy saw a shot deflect off Alvaro Arbeloa.[LNB]But second-placed Liverpool, who now sit seven points adrift of Premier League leaders Manchester United, hit back through Dirk Kuyt.[LNB]And Hughes feels his side were worth more than the solitary point they recorded on Merseyside, after also drawing 2-2 with Copenhagen in the Uefa Cup in midweek. [LNB]ExcellentThe Welshman said: "That was an excellent performance and we were good value for the point and probably deserved more.[LNB]"We were playing a side going for the title, and after we had been involved in a tiring Uefa Cup game in Denmark on Thursday.[LNB]"But we put in an excellent performance, we were strong and resilient and we deserved the result."[LNB]Hughes also praised Bellamy, adding: "It is always the case a club's ex-players want to do well against them.[LNB]"Craig is a proud man and maybe he feels he did not get a fair crack of the whip when he was at Liverpool. He has played extremely well since he joined us."[LNB]
