Manchester City maintains lead with a 2-2 draw against Liverpool


Manchester City faced Liverpool, their closest rivals, at Etihad Stadium today. The game ended in a 2-2 draw.

This enables City to retain the top spot in the Premier League table with 74 points.
Liverpool is in the second position with 73 points.

Kevin de Bruyne, who was the man of the match, opened the scoring for City.

Diogo Jota later equalised for the visiting team through a pass from Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Pep Guardiola’s men dominated the first half but they missed many scoring chances.

Nine minutes to the end of the first half, Gabriel Jesus converted a cross from Joao Cancelo.

The first half ended 2-1 in favour of Manchester City.

Liverpool came all out in the second half resulting in a 47th-minute goal through Sadio Mane.

The referee ruled out a goal scored by Raheem Sterling because he broke the offside rule.

Besides, at the dying seconds of the game, City substitute Riyad Mahrez wasted a chance. And this could have gotten the winner for the home team.

With this result, it is very clear that Liverpool is still a contender for the title.
The majority of the clubs in the Premier League have seven games to go.
