Stalemate at Anfield between Liverpool and Manchester City

It was a classic contest at Anfield as the last two Premier League winners ended 2-2 in an entertaining second-half.

After a one-sided first half dominated by Manchester City, it was Liverpool who broke the deadlock just before the hour mark, after Salah took the ball on a break from his half, gave a through ball to Sadio Mane, and the Senegalese made no mistake to finish past Ederson.

In the 69th minute, the visitors levelled matters through Phil Foden, after Gabriel Jesus picked him out on the left and the England International placed the ball to the bottom left of Allison. 

Seven minutes later, the Reds took the lead again, as Mo Salah wriggled his way through different Manchester City players with lovely skills, before blasting the ball into the back of the net to give Liverpool a 2-1 lead.

The Cityzens were not done, as Kevin De Bruyne equalized five minutes later after Foden’s cross was blocked and fell to de Bruyne, who whipped the ball with his left foot into the net. 

With the draw, Liverpool sit second with 15 points, just one point behind Chelsea, while Manchester City are third with 14 points, level on points with three other clubs.
