Four goals in 22 minutes lit up a hugely dramatic second half in the heavyweight clash between title rivals on Merseyside, with Sadio Mane and Mo Salah both putting the hosts in front, only for man of the match Phil Foden and then Kevin De Bruyne to hit back and earn a deserved share of the spoils.

Liverpool – unchanged from their Champions League thrashing of FC Porto, with James Milner continuing to deputise for the injured Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back – made the better start to proceedings after a wonderful pre-match tribute to the late Roger Hunt, with Aymeric Laporte alert to clear a couple of dangerous crosses and a corner flying over the head of a leaping Joel Matip.
But after sitting deep initially, City – showing two changes from the midweek defeat to Paris Saint-Germain as Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez made way for Foden and Gabriel Jesus – quickly grabbed the upper hand and Jack Grealish saw a shot blocked by Matip before Andy Robertson made a key header behind at the back post to see off a Bernardo Silva delivery.
The impressive Foden headed wide from an offside position and then had the first big chance of the afternoon, with Alisson blocking his shot after wonderful play from Bernardo, who had won possession from Jordan Henderson in the middle of the park before skipping forward through multiple challenges.
