  • LIVERPOOL 2-2 CITY

    81, Man City have come again and they’re level again. A stunning response.

    Foden got in down the left again and he pulled the ball back I think towards Silva in the area.

    It broke to De Bruyne on the edge of the box and he picked his spot in the far corner, albeit with the help of a small deflection.

    This is breathtaking.

  • GOALLLLLLLLL!!!!!

    De Bruyne!!! It’s 2-2. Fantastic goal! WHAT A GAME!

  • LIVERPOOL 2-1 CITY

    78, That’s insult to injury for Pep Guardiola.

    He is shown a yellow card for his protests and that will make him feel no better.

    The City boss is furious that Milner was still on the pitch and his side are now behind again.

    To make matters worse, Milner has just been taken off and Gomez on in his place.

    76, From out of absolutely nothing, Salah has put Liverpool back in front.

    He left two Man City defenders for dead and worked his way into the box before turning Dias inside out.

    The Egyptian had a tight angle, but fired it into the far corner.

    A simply brilliant goal – Liverpool back in front.

  • GOALLLLLLL!!!!!

    Mo Salah!!! An incredible goal! 2-1 Liverpool.

  • LIVERPOOL 1-1 CITY

    73, Milner has just brought down Bernardo, and somehow avoided a second yellow card.

    Pep Guardiola is furious. That was a blatant booking.

    Not even a VAR check. Milner stays on the pitch somehow.

    71, What a final 20 minutes we have in store.

    My money is on a winner at either end, I don’t think this ends a draw.

  • LIVERPOOL 1-1 CITY

    70, What a finish from Foden, from the tightest of angles he has picked out the bottom corner with a rasping shot.

    Man City are level, they have responded.

    Jesus made the run in from the right and slid it in to Foden down the left, and the local lad fired Pep’s men level.

  • GOALLLLLLLLL!!!!!!

    Phil Foden!! Man City level!

  • LIVERPOOL 1-0 CITY

    68, Liverpool respond with Firmino coming on for Jota. So the familiar front three of Mane-Salah-Firmino are reunited.

    Jesus has switched to the left flak for City, and he had a real chance just then to run at Milner and get his shot on goal, but he wasted it.

  • LIVERPOOL 1-0 CITY

    65, 25 minutes to go and how will City respond?

    Looks like we’re about to see Sterling come off the bench. Indeed he does come on to replace Grealish.

    Jota, meanwhile, is booked for a foul on De Bruyne.

  • LIVERPOOL 1-0 CITY

    61, Man City won’t believe they’re behind in this, but they didn’t take their chance in the first-half when they had Liverpool on the ropes.

    They’ve started this second half like a team that are just soaking up pressure again.

    Excellent from Klopp and Liverpool to reverse the momentum.

    59, Liverpool click into gear, and in the blink of an eye they take the lead.

    Salah just got away from Cancelo down the right, and his strike partner Mane made a brilliant diagonal run across him and in behind Dias.

    Salah found him with a perfect slide through ball, and Mane lifted it past Ederson.

    Anfield erupts… what a turnaround from Liverpool since half-time.

  • GOOOOOOAAAALLLLLLLL!!!!!!!

    Sadio Mane! LIVERPOOL LEAD!!!!

  • LIVERPOOL 0-0 CITY

    56, City just beginning to re-establish a foothold in this game and get their passing back.

    They seemed content to let Liverpool come at them for 10 minutes.

  • LIVERPOOL 0-0 CITY

    51, Liverpool first to the second balls in theis second half.

    City are sitting deep and looking like they know a storm is brewing. Have they missed their best chance?

    50, Matip finds Jota with a ball into feet and the strike turns brilliantly before firing in a shot.

    Ederson got down to make a save and a much-needed one too.

    Funny how half-time can change a game…

  • LIVERPOOL 0-0 CITY

    47, Much better from Liverpool.

    They work an opening for Milner to fire in a cross, but it’s straight at Ederson.

    Encouraging, though.

  • LIVERPOOL 0-0 CITY

    46, And we’re underway in the second half.

  • NO CHANGES

    Teams back on their way out of the tunnel and surprised to see no changes for Liverpool.

    How will they deal with Foden down the left in the second half?

  • ONE WAY TRAFFIC

    Man City have been the driving force in that first half.

    One shot compared to Man City’s seven. 55 per cent possession for the away side too.

    They have been first to the pump, but will they run out of fuel?

    That’s enough topical puns for one post.

  • HT: LIVERPOOL 0-0 CITY

    Half-time at Anfield and somehow Man City aren’t ahead. It’s been completely one-way traffic and Liverpool haven’t got doing at all.

    Klopp sprints down the tunnel. He’s going to need to make some big changes.

  • LIVERPOOL 0-0 CITY

    45, What a quite unbelievable pass from Ederson for Foden in behind Milner again.

    Alisson was off his line to make a tackle as Foden tried to skip round him.

    Milner could be done at HT at this rate. Klopp needs to make changes down that flank.

    1 minute added time.

  • LIVERPOOL 0-0 CITY

    42, Milner is having all kinds of problems.

    He was just left for dead by Foden and picks up a yellow card for hauling him down.

    40, As expected City are getting a lot of joy down their left. Milner needs some more help and Henderson is trying to provide it.

    Anfield is not just anxious, it’s agitated and restless.
