Man City 1-1 Liverpool: Best And Bad Moments Of City Players

Manchester City players give their all to leave Anfield with a point and a 1-1 draw with Liverpool. However, there were best and bad moments for the City players as they moved from second to third position on the league table.

Kevin De Bruyne and Pep Guardiola

The match started on a high note as expected. Both teams had chances to break the deadlock but it was the visitors that eventually put the ball in the back of the net.

John Stones brilliantly converted a corner-kick taken by Kevin De Bruyne and put his side in front in the 23 minutes. Despite having a lot of chances to level the score, the scoreline remained the same for the first 45 minutes.

Liverpool levelled up their game in the second half, they put pressure on their City players and forced Rodri to get a yellow card in the 47 minutes. The goal eventually came for Jurgen Klopp’s men after Nathan Ake’s short pass to Ederson for the Brazilian goalkeeper to commit a foul in his half.

The City goalkeeper got booked and was brought out injured after he couldn’t stop Mac Allister from scoring from the spot-kick.

It seems Liverpool will eventually steal all three points as Manchester City players couldn’t contain their attacking threats. Unfortunately, for the Red, Luis Diaz failed to judiciously take his chances to give his side a deserving goal.

City looked vulnerable for large parts of the second half, prompting Guardiola to take drastic action with just over 20 minutes left to play. The City boss decided to replace Kevin De Bruyne with Mateo Kovacic and Julian Alvarez came out for Jeremy Doku.

However, the Belgian was not happy about the decision. He was complaining to Guardiola as he left the field and exchanged words with assistant coach Juanma Lillo before taking his place on the bench.

The final result means that City are unbeaten in their last 21 matches in all competitions and sit at the third position, one point behind Arsenal and Liverpool occupy the first and second positions respectively.
