Man City retain slender Premier League lead after thrilling draw with Liverpool

Manchester City has maintained its slender one-point lead over Liverpool in the English Premier League title race after a thrilling 2-2 draw at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

City flew out of the blocks to take an early lead when Kevin De Bruyne’s deflected strike deceived Alisson and went in, off the far post, after just 5 minutes.

But Liverpool was quickly on level terms, as Diogo Jota turned home a lay-off by Trent Alexander-Arnold 8 minutes later.

Gabriel Jesus then tucked City back into the lead 9 minutes before the break, when he beat the Red’s offside trap and nipped in ahead of Alisson, on a Joao Cancelo cross.

However, Liverpool came out firing after the restart, as Mohammad Salah released Sadio Mane with a through pass which the Senegalese striker converted with a clinical first-time finish.

 The result means the title race remains firmly in the balance with City ahead by just that one point with seven matches left to play.
