MOTD- Manchester City 2-2 Liverpool

FULL TIME- It is full time at the Etihad, and Manchester City have drawn with Liverpool 2-2 for the third consecutive time in all competitions. The game started with Liverpool having the better of City, but in the twenty-first minute a low cross from James Milner found Edin Dzeko, who passed it into the back of the net. Liverpool still had the better of City, and got rewarded for that in the twenty-ninth minute when a poor Javi Garcia clearance found new Liverpool signing Daniel Sturridge just outside the box, who hit a low shot past City goalkeeper Joe Hart. The rest of the half was marred with chances, but they were not put away. The second half again started in the favor of Liverpool, and they got their again got rewarded for that when a Gael Clichy clearance found Liverpool’s Steven Gerrard thirty yards out, who chested it down and hit a thundering dipping volley past Joe Hart into the bottom left corner. It really was a classic Gerrard finish. Everything was going perfectly for Liverpool until the seventieth minute when Pepe Reina stupidly came out to meet a long ball, which Sergio Aguero reached first. Reina did his job though, and shepherded Aguero wide, but Aguero turned and curled it into he net from almost no angle. Liverpool tried to go ahead again, but they couldn’t break City’s defense and the game ended 2-2.
Man of the Match: Daniel Sturridge
