Liverpool fell in 13 minutes thanks to a penalty kick before Gabriel Jesus equalized half an hour later
Just before the break, Kevin De Bruyne missed a penalty kick after Joe Gomez touched it inside the penalty area, and Jesus missed a header after the intermission and the match ended in a 1-1 draw
Liverpool was apparently playing 4-2-4, was straight in attack and could have been ahead in the first minute as Roberto Firmino managed to advance only for Ederson to grab a decisive hand on the ball while his fellow countryman looked around.
The visitors were aggressive with high pressure, and Citi could not enter into any meaningful rhythm but in 12 minutes, a moment of controversy walked the visitors’ path
Raheem Sterling received a boost when he overcame Diogo Jota and despite trying to stand on his feet, he slipped into the penalty area – the referee waved the game, broke Liverpool, and Sadio Mane fell under challenge from Kyle Walker, Craig Pawson pointed to the place
Mohamed Salah missed the penalty kick, but City’s players were still protesting against the free kick that should have counted – but decisions that don’t go our way in this match in recent seasons are not new!
Sterling had a good chance to equalize in the 26th minute after Kevin De Bruyne hit a low cross in the penalty area, but it may have taken too long and Allison managed to block the shot and the danger was removed.
But City continued to advance and in 30 minutes was duly rewarded, de Bruyne fed Gabriel Jesus inside the penalty area and the Brazilian walked away from his marker before hitting a low shot past Allison’s net.
Moments later, Alison’s stray kick found Ilkai Gundogan, who shot it to his right and De Bruyne fired a foot low
Five minutes before the end of the first half, City squandered a golden opportunity to advance when Joe Gomez touched De Bruyne’s cross from the right, and after checking the VAR and a trip to the side screen, Craig Pawson pointed to a spot
Almost in the first half, the Merseysiders came close again as Mane Salah found and in turn found Trent Alexander-Arnold the gradient but Ederson was even on his low shot and nearly blocked it off the line after his first block
And there was no slowdown after the reboot as these two Premier League giants continued to overpower them
Jota should have performed better when he collected a skew shot before a weak shot that Ederson could easily collect.
Then in 55 superb games by Joao Cancelo who cut from the right before sending a superb cross in that Jesus headed away from six yards – if he had pointed it into the goal he would have definitely scored it
As the match went on, the energy levels on both sides decreased – they had to – and the game was being played at a slightly lower pace
City dominated most of the past half hour but was left feeling regretful for missing the penalty kick that could have overcome this tense battle
The Portuguese right-back – who plays at left back, let us remember – has added a new dimension to attacking on the left side with his excellent style and deception.
Sometimes it resembles the left wing with its animations and puppets, but it creates chances as well.
His crucifixion to Jesus before the hour was supposed to score a goal, but it didn’t detract from the wonderful performance of the Portugal star
