#MCILIV: 5 Talking Points from Manchester City 2-2 Liverpool
The game between Manchester City and Liverpool was one of the most-watched football game of this weekend.
City hosted the Reds at the Etihad Stadium going into the game just a point ahead of Jurgen Klopp's team. This is the 50th ever Premier League match between the top two sides in the division, with the league leaders winning 20 and losing 18 (12 draws).
Notjustok has decided to hhighlight five talking points from the game between Manchester City and Liverpool.
(1) Kevin De Bruyne:
The Belgian had been in amazing form for the Cityzens in recent weeks and he showed his form as he scored the opening goal of the game against Liverpool. He has scored six goals in his last six appearances for Manchester City, while he's netted in four in a row across all competitions for the first time for the club.
(2) Pep Guardiola's Master Class:
The Manchester City boss showed why he is one of the best in this business since his coaching days at Barcelona. The game against Liverpool needed every sense of awareness and tactics from the Cityzens and Guardiola did deliver what his was expected from his team against his rivals.
(3) Liverpool's Slip:
Jurgen Klopp's players for the first team this season went into the half-time break behind for the first time in this Premier League season. Manchester City were able to break the defence line of the Reds which was led by Van Dijk, Robertson, Trent and Matip more times than the number of goals that they scored in the game.
(4) Jurgen Klopp's Master Class:
The German showed his coaching ability at the start of the second half when Sadio Mane scored the opening goal of the second half to bring Liverpool level into the game. Klopp had shown in the past that he is also on the best coaches in this business of football since he took over the coaching job at Anfield.
(5) Premier League title:
Manchester City and Liverpool are still separated by just one point with seven games to go. Both teams will face each other in the semi-finals of the FA Cup but the fate of both teams is left in their heads as the season wind down.
