Leaders Manchester City played a 2-2 draw at home with second-placed Liverpool in the 32nd round of the English Football Championship on Sunday.
The Manchester United defense had a poor start at the start of the game via Sterling, but at the end of the fifth minute they advanced with a counter-volley from Belgium’s Kevin De Bruyne. Liverpool were not afraid of being denied, as Portuguese Diogo Jota equalized eight minutes later at the end of Jamil’s work.
Neither team was able to keep up with the other players, but the guest goalkeeper was unable to get the ball out, and Gabriel Jesus came in to finish the match. It was the first time in the season that Liverpool were at a disadvantage during the Premier League break, and the last time exactly this happened against Aston Villa with manager Jurgen Klopp.
It wasn’t a minute into the turn when Sadio Mane equalised, but then, the match was mostly on the field. In the 63rd minute, Sterling scored and, as it turned out, this was the last really dangerous chance of the match, so City maintained their one-point lead at the top of the table with seven games before the end of the tournament. .
The draw did not break the streak of Gabriel Jesus and Diogo Jota: neither striker reached the tournament with their team by scoring a goal. Jesus’ tally with 42 wins is already three draws, while Jota and Liverpool have shared points for the sixth time with 27 successes.
