Match Review: Liverpool, Manchester City play out thrilling 1-1 draw in Premier League showdown

Posted : 12 March 2024

The much-anticipated clash between Liverpool and Manchester City lived up to its billing as an "Epic Game," drawing praise from the English media for its thrilling nature. The match concluded with a 1-1 draw, leaving both teams to share the points and benefiting Arsenal, who maintained their top position in the Premier League, tied with Liverpool and one point ahead of City.


The encounter unfolded with an electrifying first half dominated by the champions, as Kevin de Bruyne's brilliant delivery found John Stones, securing City's deserved lead with a close-range goal.


In the second half, the momentum shifted as Liverpool seized control. In the 50th minute, Alexis McAllister equalized from the penalty spot after Ederson fouled Darwin Nunes in the box. Despite numerous opportunities for both sides, no additional goals were scored.


 Liverpool, however, contested the referee's decision not to award them a penalty after Jeremy Doku's challenge on Alexis McAllister, with manager Jurgen Klopp expressing dissatisfaction. Former referee Mike Dean also suggested there was a case for a penalty, emphasizing the impact on the opposing player.

Klopp praised his team's second-half performance, hailing it as their best against Manchester City. He expressed confidence in Liverpool's championship aspirations and deemed the game a testament to their rightful place among the top contenders.


Defender Virgil van Dijk, while acknowledging the improved second half, left with mixed feelings, feeling his team deserved a win. The media spotlighted Kevin de Bruyne's genius on the pitch but also highlighted the incident between him and Pep Guardiola.


Despite De Bruyne's discontent at being substituted, Guardiola downplayed the situation, expressing confidence in the player's abilities and emphasizing the positive relationship between them. Guardiola characterized the game as highly enjoyable for spectators and acknowledged the challenge posed by Liverpool, stating that they would accept the drawn point.
