Liverpool were having plenty of joy going forward, however City kept carving the Reds open at will at the back as the half wore on.

Both backlines looked shaky, with Sterling and Salah threatening on occasion, however the pace of this contest began to drop after the half-hour mark with City taking a 1-0 lead into the break.

The second half began much like the first, with both teams bombing forward at will. However, the Reds managed to grab a foothold in the game after the first five minutes, with City retreating back into their own half.

Van Dijk managed to divert the ball past Bravo with a half-volley from a corner, only for the ball to hit the crossbar and agnosingly bounce on the line. Seconds later, Salah showed wonderful feet to dance past City’s defenders, however, he could only manage to hit the woodwork with his low effort.

As the game took on an end-to-end nature, Sterling saw himself through on goal just after the hour mark, with Walker bombing forward in support. Van Dijk managed to sprint back and distract the Englishman, who fell at the feet of Alisson when it looked easier to score.

The Reds kept applying pressure on City’s back-line and got their just reward with 15 minutes to go as Van Dijk squared the ball in the box to find substitute Joel Matip, who headed home to equalise in front of the Liverpool end.

Keita was involved in the action straight away as he got a shot off from the edge of the box, however, it went straight to the hands of the waiting Bravo.

The returning Oxlade-Chamberlain smashed his penalty into the roof of the net to make it 3-3, however, Zinchenko managed to squeeze his shot past Alisson to make it advantage City once more.
