After this game I've come to the conclusion there is no possibility of man utd competing for the league Amazing game


young-oldman

This was the highest level football I've seen in a while.


penta3x

Honestly screw Barca vs Real. The new clasico now is Liverpool vs City


LampseederBroDude51

Lmao are you serious


dvisoon

As a Barca fan, our classicos lack quiality nowadays


young-oldman

i no longer even know when the classicos are, when back then we used to organize watch parties weeks ahead..


LampseederBroDude51

Sure, it’s not as good as it was before. It probably never will The magic of the fixture never changes


Liddlebitchboy

Naturally for you it'll be magical. I think for a neutral who just wants to see the best football it's currently not in El Clasico, which is normal


AyatollahFromCauca

100% Spains time is over.


LampseederBroDude51

Liverpool-City has been big for like 3 years


penta3x

I honestly would watch 100 games of them than only 1 of Baca vs Real.


LampseederBroDude51

There have been way more thrilling Clasicos than Liverpool-City matches 2-3 in 2017 2-2 in 2018 3-4 in 2014 2-1 last season 2-1 in 2012 2-1 in 2016 3-1 in 2017 Liverpool-City: 4-3 in 2018 3-1 in 2019 This


rxi71

You what mate? What about the 2-1 in 2019, probably the highest quality game of football I have seen in the last 5 years. Also the 3-0 and the 2-1 in the Champions League were incredible games.


penta3x

This is too biased. Every Liverpool vs City game since 2017 has been a thriller. Would definitely say Barcelona vs Real was bigger. But since Ronaldo left, it went downward and when Messi also left it revealed Barca without Messi which is a mid table team so as I said even in the coming years I wouldn't care if Barca faced Real. Even with Messi Barcelona and Real were getting 0-0 and since 2019 I honestly think Liver vs City became bigger than Real vs Barca


LampseederBroDude51

Every game? PL bias will never get old


dynachist

No bias bro. Barcelona are a shambles and Madrid have no stars anymore. City v LFC is currently the highest level football game in the world, as El classico once was


AyatollahFromCauca

And? Right no ñw they are a universe above madrid and barca.


LampseederBroDude51

We beat Liverpool last season…


Constant_List6829

...when we played Nat and Kabak as our CBs...


LampseederBroDude51

We didn’t have Ramos or Varane.


meta4_

And you still don't


somalipilates

You're unbelievably biased. You beat a Liverpool side that was using its 6th and 7th choice CBs in a champions league game. You didn't have your first 2 choices. It's not comparable at all. Real and Barca aren't formidable on the European stage anymore. Even some of those games you mentioned were average at best


NemesisOwl

Sterling "always looking for a pass"? Sure Martin Tyler... sure.... Glad you didn't see Liverpool lose.


jro-red7117

I mean he was lol


gayintheass

City was robbed like Messi 3 days ago.Great match though


biskutgoreng

Fuck me what a game


nick170100

Football has gone Mad Madrid losing to sheriff and espanyol Barca losing to benfica and athletico Bayern losing to Frankfurt PSG losing to rennes


Hoofhearted4206969

Villa real losing to manU!!!


Sporangio

> athletico


Initial_Sherbet4198

Barca losing isn't really surprising now


Mr_Rafi

Barca losing to Atleti isn't unusual like the others though.


Gwilikers6

Right? Disrespect


borahae7

Happy with a draw at Anfield! More damage can be done at the Etihad by City!


35chambers

fair result


WhetBred14

Undeniably game of the season so far


ATN5

I honestly enjoy every game against Liverpool. They will always play their style no matter who they are up against. Only team I view as a rival


Slimshady0406

Last season our first match was a 1-1 draw and our second match was us winning 2-1. We've only been here for a year but you're really overstating your lack of rivals from a pure footballing perspective Plus the whole pep-bielsa relationship adds a nice touch


ATN5

Yeah I don't mean disrespect to other teams. I'm just taking into consideration the longevity with both teams being on top and the whole Pep/Klopp era. Leeds play amazing ball as well.


Naarujuana

As a rival domestically for the League title, I take it? Overall, you're still 1-3 vs Chelsea since April '21 having had them knock you out of 2 different competitions, one of which had them knick the largest available silverware (UCL) still alluding your club since the £££ spree began.


przhauukwnbh

> you're still 1-3 Vs Chelsea since April '21 Rivalries take a bit longer than that to develop mate lol


romulo_7

Rent free haha


Sei28

What, you don’t enjoy your games against United with exciting results like 0-0 or 0-1 (Fernandes pen 90+4’)?


Castiel1987

Oh you mean the last game at their stadium that we won 2-0? Yeah right, what a boring game


scraggledog

Damn, robbed of three points by that crazy tackle on the Fabinho shot.


romulo_7

Man city robbed off by paid referee


Zb990

What's it like being blind?


ShutupNdSquat

Don't thing you know the meaning of the word


ObeseKunt

Tbf if there’s one set of fans that know what robbing is, it’s the scousers. Clearly this one’s a plastic from London.


Expensive_Cattle

I'm a scouser but this was funny. Quality game mate and a draw was fair in my opinion. Your boys turn up 100% against us everytime. Wish you wouldn't in a way but I also low key love it.


ObeseKunt

Yep. Was there today and the away end was in limbs. Home end too when you scored. Great game all round, let’s at least rejoice in the fact that we’re both head and shoulders better than the Stretford red scum!


TheKennorz

Its not being robbed if its a player doing his job is it?


dandatu

Nah y’all robbed City lmfao well the ref did.


SpearofTrium05

I always like to see the players break off into small groups of their NT teammates after the match.


mateusbzs13

That little group with both teams' goalkeepers and center forwards


Lolisosa1992

and defensive mids


Last__Word

Milner with 3-4 yellow offences


Almost_Pi

An old Jedi mind trick is the only explanation I can think of for why he didn't get a second.


--Hutch--

What's this joint man of the match bullshit Sky just pulled? This isn't school sports day ffs. Salah MOTM imo.


ATN5

Who did they give it to?


jro-red7117

Salah and Foden I believe


14Strike

😂😂😂😂 They were both excellent but honestly what nonsense


HollyMolly141

I would even put Bernardo above Foden tbh. It may be a personal opinion, but Bernardo was everywhere this game, and probably the only "mistake" was that he could have stoped liverpools second goal (but even so, it wasnt a mistake per say)


--Hutch--

Salah and Foden joint MOTM. Football friends!


jahapahaoajao

This game is always insane. Gg


Alloezero

Fuck I hate it. The ANXIETY.


RushPan93

Yea I normally have some other stuff going on when the match is on the .telly. When we play City though, it's just breathless, relentless. Toughest opposition I've seen us play since maybe that Milan team in Istanbul


prosportscars

What an entertaining second half, a draw is the only fair result for this game.


emerioAarke

We really got everything in this game, including Jesus helping Foden to score in the 69.


clifford-5

Jesus Christ what a game


neandertales

Sterling needs to switch club.


Soitsgonnabeforever

Milner and Sterling just did that


RushPan93

Not Milner, come on. He snuffed out Zaha just a few weeks ago, don't forget.


afcchief

Liverpool fans disappointed with that result


gayintheass

Liverpool got lucky with the referee,why are you disappointed?


afcchief

im not disappointed im just sayin if I were a Liverpool fan id be annoyed at a draw at home to title rivals after being ahead twice


austen_317

They shouldn’t be. Should be thanking their lucky stars Milner didn’t go off


Almost_Pi

was more entertaining than the Chelsea draw


Cowdude179

The game against us would've turned out like this if it weren't for the red card


intecknicolour

pep likes to attack. tuchel wants to defend for his life


Tahapatel

Weird considering we attacked more till the red


dumbledore_albus69

Did you watch the match bro?


Tahapatel

Till the red we were on the front foot easily mount missed a sitter and kai had 3 3v3s to pass to rom but he made the wrong decision thrice


intecknicolour

you guys have the best defence in the league is what i meant


Tahapatel

Ok but it's not like we "defend for our life"


Helpful_Interview_41

I mean vs the two best teams in the PL Liverpool and City I only saw you guys defend


Tahapatel

City game is fair but we attacked more than Liverpool till the red


rohangc07

And win? Against city both halves were completely different.


ShockernonShaken

and LFC played this one better than that Chelsea team with 10 men


AV48

Man, these scenes are so heart warming.. Gg


NieThePiet

Arsenal the winner for this result. Just 5 points behind Liverpool now.


Cowdude179

Arsenal drop points to Brighton and Brentford, not City


ATastefulCrossJoin

Lots of mutual respect on display postgame. Love to see it


thedeatheater1410

Vintage Barclay's that


UnleashKO1

Exactly what I was thinking. Missing this type of end to end stuff, extremely entertaining.


RayCashhhh

Lovely show of respect between the two sides


SaizoCfc

Excellent result for us


FatBlondeNasri

For the balls?


dumbledore_albus69

Lmao


DwightKSchruute

Games like these really show how far ahead these two teams are


TonalDrump

Perfect results for Chelsea.


sarcastr0naut

Feeling incredibly salty to take the lead twice and lose it, but it's probably a fair result. What a cracker of a game. Salah is unreal; pay him any money to keep him here.


ShawnHBKMichaels

Very very lucky to finish with 11 players though


Spiderevans

Consider we could’ve been down 2nil at half time and that’s a good point. Also think Milner should have seen red.


Shukran43

City good?


calumm99

Would be nice if for one second sky would get off Fodens dick


objectivelybased

Honestly thought Bernado played better than Foden today. Salah MOTM though


AV48

Tbf he did have a good game


ShawnHBKMichaels

Jesus makes the goal, does everything, Foden takes a bad touch and slots it back across to score and they wank themselves to how good Foden is


gayintheass

Foden was incredible this game...


Runningcolt

Salah was incredible for all eternity.


3MePlsIDidntKnow

Just give the MOTM to Salah, don’t know why it’s joint😐


b33b0p17

Great game, great result


LogicalSherbert9

Pep v Klopp low key one of the best managerial rivalries ever. Always produces 10/10 games of football.


Shukran43

Occasional 0-0


BabyKeith08

Even the 0-0’s tend to be quite entertaining


MolicOnePGR

Liverpool and City are still the clear best two teams, don’t wanna hear none of that Chelsea/United talk.


austen_317

Gnaw Chelsea get a shout for sure


Tahapatel

United IA. But we are above Liverpool with playing a tougher schedule and above city with playing a similar schedule and we look as good as them this game was similar to us vs Liverpool if the red wasn't given


Cowdude179

Chelsea are the underdogs definitely, can't be scraping top 4 to title favourites just like that


BlaqOptic

I got Chelsea and City clear of everyone else. Liverpool just below that and United a tier below that.


LogicalSherbert9

100%. Chelsea can't play this well and United don't have a competent manager. City and Pool still clear at the top, time will show it.


Cowdude179

Oh we can play this well against other teams not named City. We were good against Liverpool at Anfield and if it weren't for the red we would've had a fun game like this one


LogicalSherbert9

I think defensively you might be the best in the league, you guys are solid as a rock and an effective team. But going forward it can be quite monotonous and I have a feeling it will catch up at some point and points will be dropped against the worse teams. I could be wrong though, I rate Tuchel very highly.


Cowdude179

We've already seen changes in the team already with RLC, CHO, Barkley, Chilwell being added to the side, we seem to have more pace with them and Werner on the field. Plus we'll have Pulisic, Kanté and James back after the break, I trust Tuchel in whatever he does really


LogicalSherbert9

I just reckon your wingback system can be stopped going forward because it can be quite predictable. It's certainly worked well so far, but I need to see it work consistently over the year to be convinced, like how City and Pool have systems that consistently beat the weaker sides for a few years now.


Cowdude179

Definitely, but now that Chilwell is regularly starting with James our attack should look a lot better and more defensively sound at the back as well


dema-dontcontrol-us

Put some respect on Brighton's name


intecknicolour

potter deserves a bigger job


MikeHellBay

Brespecton


N7even

Perfect result. I wanted a draw at best, or a City win at worst. Good game though.


Jon98th

“You’ll never walk alone” Ref : “no , You won’t “


FSG_Out_

We’ve pissed away 4 points in 2 games. Can’t see us winning the title this year


Nabbylaa

If anything we earned a point after that abject first half performance. Don't understand why you're crying about us drawing against the reigning champions billion pound squad.


FSG_Out_

We went ahead twice and fuck it twice. That’s 2 points dropped that realistically we can’t afford to drop when you need to have near perfect seasons We’re drawing too many games like we did 18/19.


Nabbylaa

Its 7 games in and we are still a point ahead of city. They're level on points with Brighton ffs, you can't call anything right now. I was annoyed about conceding 3 with some awful mistakes against Brentford but this isn't in the same league as that.


dema-dontcontrol-us

Support Everton instead


pleb_abuser

Overreaction much? Both sides looked great.


Expensive_Cattle

The username says it all. Not sure how anyone who watched the second half can say we can't win it this year (will be tight af though between city and your lads). Loving the competition.


FSG_Out_

I mean you need to have near perfect seasons now. We’ve pissed away 4 points against Brentford and City in the last 2 games.


pleb_abuser

Maybe, maybe not. It's a long season and the league is getting tougher and tougher.


lemon_meringue_tie

What a great match.


SwagCrayCray

Fantastic match what else do you say


muwenk

proper fucking EPL match


taskkill-IM

Absolutely robbed today... shithouse ref


BlaqOptic

Fuck James Milner.


dreadnough7

Jesus Christ, James Milner got away with one and out came the crying. How long did the rest of us have to suffer for the shits Fernandinho routinely got away with?


austen_317

Fernie on a yellow is a different player. That’s why he never sees red


aghicantthinkofaname

Came back twice, you really can't say you were robbed


taskkill-IM

We shouldn't have even been in that position to begin with... Milner goes and Liverpool don't score the second, they weren't a massive goal threat until straight after that moment


Runningcolt

Salah could do it all by himself. Liverpool is always a goal threat.


taskkill-IM

Milner was involved for the second goal though... you lose a defender then your entire shape has to change... Salah is class though.


aghicantthinkofaname

'Waaaa the ref should have sent off the mean man and then we would win.' Deal with what's in front of you and don't depend on the ref. Also, fabino missed an open goal. You were not robbed


ShawnHBKMichaels

Lol, Milner should be sent off and then immediately contributes to the goal and you think he’s got no right to be pissed off about that?


taskkill-IM

Don't depend on the ref? What's the fucking point of having one then? His job is to discipline players, Milner made a clear yellow card foul and should've walked, simple.


cuddlecatz

Fantastic game by Salah. Wonderful finishes by the two city men. Ref absolute shit and Grealish 100m looking shaky


jro-red7117

KDBs was deflected tbf, Alisson could have saved it


Chilli__P

Cracking game. Still the best two teams going, I’d say, though Chelsea are creeping up...


CJNunes426

Damn. Klopp is hot and bothered after that one. Getting handsy


Yozarian22

Cancelo is brilliant player, but he's not a natural fullback. City should move him to the midfield and find a real LB.


NieThePiet

first half for City, second for Liverpool.


vibranium_dicks

Fuck me what a game!


someoneLazy

Liverpool finish on the ropes


fren4u

Klopp and Pep were getting handsy there


hellboi808

Entertaining half


nutmeggerking

Salah is amazing. He just has that extra something


Viremia

Well, it was entertaining, which is not always the case. I need a nap now


ben-hur-hur

great game but it will be hard to get a result at the Etihad


dryduneden

Perfect result + Salah FPL points 😁


Alloezero

The new El Classico.


Outside_Break

The quality of the game was mad


Billy_LDN

Roy Keane better say something about this joint motm nonsense, his reputation is on the line here


dreadnough7

And all the hugging between opposing players after the whistle were basically anti-Roy.


darkknight261

Great match. Glad its a draw


SJHSparkplug

If theres one premier league match I want to see go to a shootout its this one


ElianVX

The Bald Fraud needs a 200m striker


Outside_Break

Tbf could put giroud up there for a tenner and he’d bang them in like prime Henry


Scholes0018

Okay, this was a proper dose of Premier League football before the fkin international break.


alfred_27

Pep and Klopp kissed aww


NormalizeEatingFeces

Everyone’s gassed lmao

He talking about man city you doodle


BlaqOptic

You were in such a rush to be butthurt you didn't even comprehend what he said.


akash_raj13

Read it again, he never called Liverpool moneybags


DrinkWisconsinably

Other way around, city is moneybags fc, and they're going to win the league because Liverpool can't even beat them with an absolute gift from the ref


jahapahaoajao

I think he's calling us money bags fc

Who needs sleep when there’s premier league My weekends consist of 4:30AM sleep times but it’s worth it
