Manchester City held Liverpool to an exhilarating 2-2 draw at Anfield. After a goalless first half, the game came to life, with the people inside Anfield Stadium being treated to a surprise attacking football show. Despite the fact that the spectators were dominating before the break, Sadio Mane opened the scoring for Liverpool, shooting home after being cleverly played by Salah.
City responded just 10 minutes after going backward, with the brilliant Phil Foden equalizing in the bottom corner of the net. With both teams fired, the football match turned into a classic and Salah brought back Liverpool with an amazing solo goal. The Egyptian showed his world-class ability, passing several city defenders before shooting with his left foot in front of goalkeeper Ederson.
“I’ll have to see,” Salah smiled in a post-game interview with Sky Sports. “I think it would be even more special if we won the game, but it is what it is. I think it was a good goal, but nothing to say.”
Despite making it short on his own, it was another special moment in Salah’s incredible career, but it did not prove to be a winner, with City tying for the second time five minutes later.
Brilliant shot by Kevin de Bruyne, a very good goal from outside the box into Foden’s net. Before the start, both the teams were full of praise for each other, but in the second half the game turned into a tough adventure. City manager Pep Guardiola was furious when Liverpool player James Milner was shown a second yellow card just moments before Salah scored.
Milner, who had already been warned, seemed to have stopped Foden, but avoided being sent off with referee Paul Tierney, showing a certain leniency to City’s annoyance. A draw meant that neither side could beat Chelsea from the top of the standings, with Liverpool in second place, and City in third, entering the international break.
