    Player Rating of Manchester City as they draw 2 -2 with Liverpool

    In a sensational afternoon of football, Manchester City and Liverpool played out a heart-stopping 2-2 draw at Anfield.

    After a one-sided first-half when Pep Guardiola’s men were dominant but profligate, the Reds twice took the lead in the second period only for City to peg them back both times as things ended all square and Chelsea managed to stay top of the league.

    Here’s how the players rated at Anfield according to SQUAWKA:

     

     

    Manchester City

    Ederson – 7 – Cool and composed. One long pass travelled 90 yards and left Phil Foden 1-v-1. Seriously. Powerless to stop the Liverpool goals as they were of such obscene quality.

    Kyle Walker – 7 – Defended well and made some really great disruptive runs in attack, including for both City goals.

    Ruben Dias – 7 – Was a rock at the back but completely lost Sadio Mané’s run for Liverpool’s opener, knocking his rating down one.

    Aymeric Laporte – 7 – A near-flawless display, unfortunately for him the flaw was getting turned inside-out by Mohamed Salah for the second goal which bumps him down a rating.

    Joao Cancelo – 5 – Basically the best player on the pitch in the first half, but got absolutely torn to shreds by Salah in the second period. A performance of two halves for the Portuguese full-back.

    Rodri – 8 – Was quietly the best player in the park. Kept recycling the ball, shutting Liverpool down and keeping things ticking. He also pulled a heart-stopping, goal-saving block to stop Fabinho from winning the game.

    Bernardo Silva – 8 – Pressed brilliantly, passed superbly, and went on one mazy run that defied belief. Liverpool couldn’t cope with his close control pretty much all night long.

    Kevin De Bruyne – 6 – Really quite bad. Nothing he executed came off and he was honestly more of a hindrance than a help to the City. Well, until he slammed home a late equaliser via an extremely fortunate deflection, of course.

     

    Gabriel Jesus – 8 – Really coming into his own in this right-wing role. Handled Andrew Robertson well and counter pressed delightfully. A simply gorgeous assist for Foden’s goal as he blew by Fabinho.

    Jack Grealish – 6 – Had some nice touches and movements but seemed to mostly be a decoy.

    Phil Foden – 9 – Tormented Liverpool in general and James Milner in particular. His movement and touch were exemplary and he came so close to scoring in the first-half and should have bagged an assist with a great cross to De Bruyne. Then, when City was desperate for a hero having fallen behind it was Foden who stepped up and delivered.

     

    First, he barrelled a beautiful shot into the back of the net from an acute angle, and then when Liverpool went ahead again Foden appeared once more, except this time it was a great cross that found its way to De Bruyne for their City’s second equaliser.

     

    Substitutes:

    Raheem Sterling (for Grealish 66′) – 7 – Was so lively after coming on. His close control and dribbling were so sharp and he just lacked a touch of killer instinct to really make the difference.

      Good analysis on the two unpredictable teams that locked horns that the score ended in a draw.
