Salah sparkles as City hold Liverpool in thriller

Kevin de Bruyne netted a deflected late equaliser to earn Manchester City a 2-2 draw after a moment of genius by Mohamed Salah looked to have earned Liverpool victory in an Anfield thriller.

Reigning champions City dominated the first half but wasted a host of chances and were punished when Sadio Mane was the beneficiary of more Salah brilliance to apply a clinical finish to put Liverpool ahead after 59 minutes.

Liverpool’s lead lasted just 10 minutes until Phil Foden, who tormented the struggling James Milner throughout, took a pass from Gabriel Jesus and fired a low, angled finish across Alisson at the Kop end.

Anfield exploded in joy after 76 minutes when Salah danced his way beyond a succession of City defenders to power home a stunning finish with his right foot.

City secured a deserved point when De Bruyne’s shot took a deflection off Joel Matip to beat Alisson with nine minutes left.

The Reds should have won it with five minutes remaining but Fabinho’s goalbound shot was kept out by Rodri’s sensational block as a thrilling game came to an end.
