Liverpool and Manchester City took a point apiece from a physical and fierce Premier League clash that concluded with a 1-1 draw on Sunday.
After a fraught and goalless first half at the Etihad Stadium, Jürgen Klopp’s side took the lead through a flawless penalty from James Milner past his old team.
Their advantage was cancelled out by Sergio Aguero, however, with the Argentinian clinically firing home from close range when found by Kevin de Bruyne’s cross.
Both sides had chances to claim victory before and after the second-half exchange of goals, but nothing could separate the Champions League-chasing rivals.
The key points…
- Fiercely competitive first half ended goalless
- Milner opened scoring from spot against former club
- Aguero equalised midway through second half
- Reds remain fourth, a point behind City
The team news…
As he had hoped, Klopp was able to name Roberto Firmino in his starting line-up, with Divock Origi dropping to the bench in the only change from last weekend.
Milner captained the side against his former club on the occasion of his 450th league game.
