The defending champions twice pegged back to take home a point from what was an enthralling encounter at Anfield.

Liverpool and Manchester City had to settle for a point each as the two sides couldn’t be separated at the end of 90 minutes of their Premier League meeting on Sunday.

Sadio Mane handed Liverpool the lead just before the hour-mark. Mane, after receiving a perfectly weighted pass from Mohamed Salah, drilled a first-time shot into the bottom-right corner of the net.

About ten minutes later, Phil Foden equalized for Manchester City by firing a left-footed effort into the far corner.

Salah, however, was quick to restore the hosts’ lead. It was a stunning solo goal by the Egyptian winger as he dribbled past three defenders before escaping a challenge from another one in the area and ultimately finished the chance from an acute angle with his weaker right foot.

Kevin De Bruyne had the final say in the thrilling 2-2 draw as he level the score in the last ten minutes to ensure his side do not walk away empty-handed.
