Manchester City 1-1 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

The points were shared at the Etihad Stadium as Liverpool and Manchester City played out a 1-1 draw in the final match before we head into another international break. It was probably a fair result with both teams failing to create too many clear-cut chances.

City Hold Liverpool At Etihad

Liverpool go into the international break third in the Premier League table after a 1-1 draw with Manchester City at The Etihad. Mohamed Salah's early penalty was cancelled out by Gabriel Jesus' equalizer and the Reds -- who had the fortune of Kevin de Bruyne missing from the spot, albeit from an extremely harshly awarded penalty -- held on for a more than merited result, which, on another day, could have been much more.

Rhys Williams slotted in comfortably at centre half next to Joe Gomez, Curtis Jones -- alongside Georginio Wijnaldum and Jordan Henderson -- was part of the midfield three and Trent Alexander started …
