Pep Guardiola’s men had the best chances in the first half, with Phil Foden coming the closest to taking the visitors in front. Both teams started the game on a cautious note, showing each other a lot of respect.
City put their foot on the gas around the 20-minute mark and were relentless since then and simply outplayed Liverpool - who were dumbstruck and looked like a shadow of themselves in the first half, but failed to make it count as it ended 0-0 at half-time.
However, Jurgen Klopp's men came back in the second half with venom and went ahead twice after the hour mark through Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah's outstanding effort.
City got right back at the Kop end after the Liverpool goals, courtesy of a brilliant Phil Foden low strike and a late ripper from Kevin De Bruyne to take away a crucial point from one of the toughest away grounds in England.
