The most awaited match of last sunday in the English Premier Legaue: was between Manchester City and Liverpool, match ended 1-1. In th firs half happened everything: two goals from Salah and Gabriel Jesus, the penalty missed by Kevin De Bruyne in the 42nd minute.
The 1-1 achieved in the initial 45 minutes is set in stone: in the second half, under the persistent rain, the speed of the two teams decreases and in the last ten minutes the mutual desire not to take risks is clear. The draw is certainly more useful to Liverpool, who will experience the stop in third place, one point less than Leicester.
Manchester City were looking for the momentum in this match to move up the rankings, but Pep Guardiola's players found themselves eleventh and it takes a good dose of optimism to think about the title. Ready, go, with no training surprises: Torres confirmed in the City and Jesus' return from the start, while in Liverpool there is a frightening advanced quartet with Jota, Firmino, Mané on the front line and Salah version center forward.
The Reds immediately focus on aggression, with a very high pressure. The advantage came in the 13th minute, thanks to a nonsense in the area by Walker: naive foul on Mané. Salah achieves the penalty with an unstoppable blow.
The Egyptian seeks glory on the counterattack in the 22nd minute, but the City is growing. Alisson saves on Sterling (25 ') and on a delightful assist from De Bruyne, Jesus gets rid of Gomez and, with a left foot, hits the ball: 1-1.
Liverpool are in trouble and a touch with Gomez's arm on De Bruyne's cross, is punished by Pawson with the second penalty of the match. De Bruyne himself shows up on the spot, but the Belgian's shot touches the post.
In the second half, after an acute by Jota, the best chances are in the sign of the City: Jesus scares Alisson in the 55th minute with a head on Cancelo's cross, a De Bruyne torpedo travels a hair over the crossbar in the 57th minute.
