EPL: Liverpool, Manchester City share the spoils in a dramatic encounter

The highly anticipated Super Sunday encounter between Reigning Premier League champions Manchester City and Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool came with all the goods, ranging from fury to late comebacks, down to respect.

After the goalless first half, Sadio Mane broke the deadlock in the 59th minutes, however, ten minutes later, Phil Foden equalized for the visitors. 

In the 76th minutes, while Pepe Guardiola was still most likely ranging over an arguably poor officiating after Milner somehow escaped a second yellow card for a tackle on Bernardo Silva, Mohamed Salah, wiggled his way through City defenders to send home an absolute stunner, sending a packed Anfield into an eruption.

It was beginning to look like the hosts would be holding on to all three points, until Kevin de Bruyne grabbed a late equaliser, while Rodri’s made a sensational injury-time block to keep out Fabinho’s goal-bound shot to ensure Manchester City returned to Manchester with a fully deserved point. 

A win for either side could have sent them to the summit of the premier league table, but the result means Thomas Tuchel’s side stays clear at the top.
