Manchester City hit back to earn a draw with Liverpool

20 March, 2017, 18:22 | Author: Alberta Rodriguez

Both clubs would then have been happy enough to watch Manchester City and Liverpool drop points by drawing 1-1 with each other, even though City manager Pep Guardiola unexpectedly described it as one of the best days of his coaching career.

Liverpool were eventually awarded a spot-kick early in the second half and former City player James Milner took advantage to give the visitors the lead.

Caballero said: "To watch it was an incredible game but for us it was a shame, disappointing, because we needed to win". That's how it is. 'Why? Because we lived through a tough two days after being out of the Champions League with our mood at what happened in Monaco.

Pep Guardiola had expected a response following last week's surrender in Monaco and that came in a pulsating Premier League clash with one of their top-four rivals at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

The Reds head into the game looking to build on their 2-1 comeback win over Burnley at Anfield last weekend as they bid to keep their top-four hopes on track.

"That is then well deserved and all the rest fight with all they have for the Champions League". "They have exceptional players".

Guardiola has one of those at his disposal of course and while Sergio Aguero was not at his ruthless best on this occasion his predatory instincts still allowed him to score a typically well taken equaliser which ensured City took a point.

They have claimed 41 points at home, more than anyone else in the league.

Number of touches by City's Argentine marksman in the opposition's penalty box in the first half. Their 0-0 draw against Sunderland brought Sean Dyche's men their third away draw of the season, the Clarets having lost their remaining 12 games away from Turf Moor.

This was a manager backing up a player who has been criticised time and again this season and it was entirely justified, as Stones turned in a much improved performance in a thrilling draw against Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool.

"Both teams went for it and it was a good game for the neutral".

The Spaniard's past record in the Champions League, which includes two triumphs with Barcelona, was perhaps the chief reason he was appointed and expectations were high when he arrived last summer. In the history of the Premier League it's hard to think of a footballer who has been so sharp in the penalty area and so deadly when shifting the ball and shooting. "This is one of the most special days of my life".

It was a surprisingly jovial Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger who faced the inevitable questions about his future as he faced the media after a 3-1 defeat at West Bromwich Albion, with most present convinced this veteran tactician had decided his time was finally up with the Gunners.

"On a more positive note, we're still unbeaten now against the top six teams this season".
