Liverpool 2 – 2 Manchester City

Must read

Mohamed Salah’s incredible solo goal lit up a thrilling draw between Premier League title rivals Liverpool and Manchester City.

Salah picked the ball up wide on the right, jinked past a number of City challenges before slotting in at the far post to put his side 2-1 ahead.

But Kevin de Bruyne’s deflected goal allowed Pep Guardiola’s side to claim a point in a breathtaking second half.

City dominated the first half but could not find the breakthrough with Phil Foden seeing an effort smothered by Alisson and De Bruyne heading over.

Liverpool improved in the second half and Diogo Jota’s spin and shot was pushed away by Ederson before Sadio Mane stroked in the opener on the hour mark after great work by Salah. Foden then equalised by drilling a superb finish into the far corner.

A winner for either side would have taken them top of the table, but the draw leaves Liverpool a point behind leaders Chelsea, with City a point further back in third.
