City, the unbeaten team in 21 games across all competitions, is in the third position with 63 points. Arsenal claimed the top spot with a 2-1 victory over Brentford on Saturday.

City seemed set to give manager Pep Guardiola his second victory in nine visits to Anfield when John Stones, in the 23rd minute, tapped in Kevin De Bruyne’s corner from close range after losing his marker. Stones celebrated by leaping onto the barrier in front of the visiting fans, shaking both fists in jubilation.

The Anfield atmosphere erupted when Mac Allister successfully converted a penalty past Ederson in the 50th minute. This followed the keeper’s rash challenge on Darwin Nunez, who was sent flying through the air in the box.

Empowered by the goal, Liverpool continued to press forward, creating several near-misses. City’s Jeremy Doku hit the post against the run of play, leading to the second draw this season between these two football giants.
