Esteemed Kompany host Steven Mcinerney goes over 5 things we learned from Manchester City’s 1-all draw with Liverpool. The treble winners had to settle for a point after dominating the majority of the game at the Etihad.
Bernardo Silva is irreplaceable for Pep Guardiola’s side. The Portuguese midfielder was at his brilliant best against Jurgen Klopp’s side. He put in a man-of-the-match performance as he dictated midfield in a fine all-round display. Alongside Rodri Bernardo makes the treble winners tick and he is near enough to the best player in the Premier League based on his current form. Manchester City couldn’t play the way they do without their inspirational playmaker.
Jeremy Doku put in another sparkling display against Liverpool. He gave Trent Alexander-Arnold fits on City’s left wing over 90 minutes. Doku has adapted quickly to life at the treble winners. His performance against Liverpool was another fine display from the Belgian. His final delivery can be improved but that will come with more experience for the young winger.
One thing became apparent throughout the game at the Etihad. Manchester City do miss Kevin De Bruyne. With the Belgian out until the New Year, Julian Alvarez has been tasked with the role that De Bruyne usually plays. The Argentinian started the season well but has tapered off of late. Alvarez is a superb player but City does miss De Bruyne. Given the space available in the Liverpool game De Bruyne would’ve thrived in such a game. His return can’t come quick enough for Manchester City.
