Esteemed Kompany host Steven Mcinerney reviews Manchester City’s 1-all draw with Liverpool in the video below. The Premier League champions were held by Liverpool in a game where they were the better side for the most part. It ended Manchester City’s 23-game winning streak at the Etihad in the process.
The stats reflected Pep Guardiola’s side’s dominance of the game. Only some poor finishing and some resolute Liverpool defending prevented City from claiming all three points. Erling Haaland opened the scoring for the treble winners in the 27th minute. His goal was his 50th in the Premier League as he smashed the previous record set by Andy Cole. Trent Alexander-Arnold equalised for Liverpool in the 80th minute to deny City all three points.

A contentious referee decision cost City a second goal midway through the second half. Ruben Dias tapped in from a corner after Alisson had spilt a corner. Manual Akanji was adjudged to have fouled Liverpool’s Brazilian keeper. The moment became a talking point post-game with some believing the goal should have stood.

Steven Mcinerney also believes Manchester City are on their way to a fourth consecutive Premier League title following yesterday’s performance. City showed just how good they with their performance against Liverpool. All that was missing was the three points. Pep Guardiola was happy with his side’s performance despite it feeling like two points dropped.
Hear Esteemed Kompany host Steven Mcinerney share his thoughts on all of this and more from yesterday’s game in the video below.
