MANCHESTER, England(AP) Steven Gerrard's first-half penalty was enough to give Liverpool a 1-0 win over a lackluster Manchester City on Wednesday in the first leg of their League Cup semifinal.

Gerrard slotted his spot kick into the bottom right corner and out of reach of goalkeeper Joe Hart in the 13th minute after Stefan Savic had fouled Daniel Agger in the area.

City looked lethargic throughout the first half and then failed to convert a number of chances in the second as it suffered back-to-back home losses for the first time since February 2008, having lost to Manchester United in the FA Cup this past weekend.
