Liverpool… from a Manchester City perspective

Liverpool… from a Manchester City perspective

Players under the age of 21 to score 14 or more league goals for their sides in Europe's top five leagues: only three.

City secured a point thanks to Sergio Aguero's equaliser to cancel out James Milner's penalty.

Manchester City fought back as Sergio Aguero's 69th-minute effort beat Simon Mignolet for a 1-1 equalizer.

On the game against Manchester City and Milner's performance at left-back, stopping Raheem Sterling's run, Can said that it was always going to be hard to play against the England global but his team-mate did the job very well.

Up at the other end, with the game being played at an extraordinary pace even after 80 minutes, David Silva scooped a unique ball over Liverpool head's, Sterling nipping the ball over Simon Mignolet but wide of the goal.

Spurs made the brighter start and led after 13 minutes as Christian Eriksen controlled a Mousa Dembele pass and fired a superb low strike into the corner from the edge of the area.

James Milner, booed by his fans of his former club, sent the goalie the wrong way. Kevin De Bruyne also hit the post.

"I love this club and I want to be here for a long, long time", he said.

Michael Oliver was named as the referee and the players gave him plenty of work to do as the rain poured down in Manchester. The Champions League defeat was so tough for us and we recovered today with our mentality and attack, but we could not attack more because Liverpool are a top team.

Germany global of Turkish origin started in central midfield for Liverpool and put on yet another impressive display. It truly looked as if Pep wanted another defensive element in the back-line to deal with Liverpool's pace, but is this a sight we will see in the final months of the season.

"He's been a huge influence on my career, learned so much from him and he's the man who probably taught me to win". Chelsea are seemingly running away with the title, so the objective for City and Liverpool is to finish in the top four. It's one of those days where I am proud most. "It was hard to start this game".

Defensively, Liverpool have been shambles all season, and will be glad to hear that Dejan Lovren can finally return to the fray and partner Joel Matip at centre-back. But from our side it was a really good team effort.

Despite their slim advantage over Liverpool, Manchester City will have a harder time picking up points in the remainder of March and early April.
