Man City fight back in Anfield thriller
October 4, 2021 5:30 am
Kevin de Bruyne’s deflected late equaliser gave Manchester City a fully deserved point after a thrilling match against Liverpool earlier this morning.
Manchester City finished with a 2-all draw against Liverpool.
City dominated the first half but wasted a host of chances and were punished when Sadio Mane was the beneficiary of more Salah brilliance to apply a clinical finish to put Liverpool ahead after 59 minutes.
Liverpool’s lead lasted just 10 minutes until Phil Foden took a pass from Gabriel Jesus and fired a low, angled finish across Alisson at the Kop end.
Anfield exploded in joy after 76 minutes when Salah slalomed his way beyond a succession of City defenders to power home a stunning finish.
City’s performance merited at least a point and secured it when De Bruyne’s shot took a deflection off Joel Matip to beat Alisson with nine minutes left.
In other matches, Crystal Palace and Leicester City also finished in a 2-all draw, Tottenham beat Aston Villa 2-1, Brentford defeated West Ham 2-1,
