Manchester City and Liverpool produced a cracking game at the Etihad on Sunday, with the clash somehow producing only two goals after both sides spurned a number of great chances.

In the first-half, City midfielder Yaya Touré was rather fortunate only to pick up a booking after he slid in on Emre Can, catching the German in the chest.

Liverpool had claims for a penalty waved away by ref Michael Oliver after Nicolas Otamendi challenged Sadio Mané in the box.

Then, at the end of what was an intense first period, Raheem Sterling was unlucky not to win a penalty for City after the winger was upended in the box by James Milner just as he was about to score from close-range.

After Sterling had failed to make contact with the ball, Fernandinho then somehow only managed to hit the post from a few yards out.


After the break, the opening goal eventually came, with James Milner converting a spot-kick after Gael Clichy fouled Roberto Firmino.

The game continued to flow from end to end and eventually, City bagged an equaliser,
