Man City 1-1 Liverpool

Premier League (8), Etihad Stadium
November 8, 2020

Goals: Salah pen 13′; Jesus 31′

The Reds faced their biggest match of the season so far, with City still their strongest title rivals in 2020/21.

Salah fired the champions ahead from the penalty spot, following Kyle Walker’s foul on Sadio Mane, as the visitors started superbly.

City were level thanks to Gabriel Jesus’ excellent solo effort, but Liverpool were let off the hook when Kevin De Bruyne’s penalty flew wide.

The second half was a far more forgettable affair, and in the end, both Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola appeared to be content with a point.

Here’s how supporters reacted to the draw on Twitter, Facebook and This Is Anfield’s forum.
