NEW YORK (AFP) - Liverpool rallied twice against Manchester City and triumphed 3-2 in a penalty shoot-out on Wednesday after their pre-season friendly at baseball's Yankee Stadium ended 2-2 after regular time.

Stevan Jovetic scored twice for Manchester City, but Jordan Henderson and Raheem Sterling answered for Liverpool in the clash between last season's top two teams in the English Premier League.

Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool dominated in the shootout, with two saves from Simon Mignolet.

Montenegro's Jovetic opened the scoring in the 53rd minute after a defensive miscue from Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard.
