Premier League Football News – City and Liverpool Draw with 4 Goals
Unsurprisingly, it was Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side who dominated possession from the very start.
But this domination over the ball did not really help the guests. After all, both sides were unable to break the deadlock by the end of the first half.
However, the tables turned in the second when Sadio Mane gave Liverpool the lead while slotting the ball past Ederson.
Eager to respond immediately, Pep Guardiola’s men restored the parity just ten minutes later. It was Phil Foden who scored and this was his third goal in his last three games against Liverpool.
City were thus level for a matter of minutes, before Mo Salah scored a remarkable goal to make it 2-1.
The Egyptian skipped away from Cancelo, Silva and Laporte to finish past Ederson and restore the home side Liverpool’s advantage.
Then, Foden again played a role in equalizing for City when he passed the ball to Kevin De Bruyne.
De Bruyne, in turn, picked up the ball from a rebound. And the Belgian unleashed a shot into the bottom left corner past Liverpool goalkeeper, helpless here, Alisson.
Liverpool – Manchester City 2:2
Goals: Mane 59’, Salah 76’ – Foden 69’, De Bruyne 81’
