Salah shines in Liverpool’s 2-2 thrilling draw vs. Manchester City
Sports Desk, Oct 3 (EFE).- Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah on Sunday collected an assist and scored an outstanding goal in a thrilling 2-2 Premier League draw against Manchester City at the Anfield stadium.
The visitors controlled most of the first half, but failed to turn their dominating performance into goals as the intermission arrived with the teams still stuck in a scoreless deadlock.
Shortly before the one-hour mark, however, the Egyptian forward raced down the right side from the midfield before setting up Sadio Mane for the first goal.
It took Manchester City only 10 minutes to draw level as Gabriel Jesus sent a clever low pass to Phil Foden who found the back of the net in the 69th minute.
Salah gave Liverpool the lead back in the 76th minute, when he dribbled past several City defenders to fire into the far post.
But five minutes later, Belgian midfielder Kevin De Bruyne fired home from the verge of the area to even things up and secure his team at least one ranking point.
With the draw, Liverpool now has 15 points and is in the No. 2 spot in the Premier League table, just one point behind leader Chelsea and one ahead of City in third.
