Manchester City and Liverpool draw a tense Premier League match


On Sunday, Manchester City and Liverpool battled off an exhilarating 2-2 draw at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester.

Kevin De Bruyne’s deflected drive sailed past Alisson in the opening five minutes of the match, giving City the lead.

However, Liverpool quickly retaliated via the efforts of Diogo Jota, who scored from close range.
And after a tense first half, Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus gave them the lead again, only for Sadio Mane to level the score 47 seconds after the break.


With only seven games left in the season, Manchester City hold a one-point advantage over Liverpool at the top of the Premier League.

Fight of the century

At the Etihad Stadium, the action was nonstop from the opening siren.
These are two of Europe’s most entertaining squads, led by two of the world’s top managers.


In a tinderbox environment, it seemed that both sides drew from that energy and preferred to attack rather than defend.

Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet saved De Bruyne’s deflected drive to give Manchester City an early lead in their Premier League clash on Saturday afternoon at Etihad Stadium.

City had only begun to gather momentum when Liverpool equalised via Jota, who tapped in following Trent Alexander-deft Arnold’s ball.


Afterwards, Jota celebrates his goal in the Manchester City vs. Real Madrid match.

Showing its champion pedigree, City responded with Jesus — who had not scored since September — justifying his selection by tapping in Joao Cancelo’s well-timed cross from the left flank.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp may have given his players a severe lecture at half-time if his team was losing.


They scored almost soon after the interval, with to Sadio Mane’s calm finish after Mohamed Salah’s magnificent pass rang in their ears.

He felt his attempt had given City the lead but the video assistant ref disallowed it because of an offside call by Raheem Sterling’s former Liverpool team-mate.

Riyad Mahrez’s late free-kick hit the post after a high-intensity last 20 minutes with limited opportunities at goal.


With seven games left in the 2022 season, the two teams are tied at one point each.

The Premier League championship battle is expected to go down to the wire, with four home and three away games left for each side.
