City got off to a flying start, as De Bruyne put them ahead after just five minutes. De Bruyne returned to the attack after Mane has cleared Sterling’s initial chance and comfortably beats Fabinho.

He hits it with his left foot from the edge of the box, and a Matip deflection sends it past Alisson, off the post, and into the back of the net.

Eight minutes later, Diogo Jota equalized for Liverpool when Robertson sent the ball back into the danger area after Laporte had cleared a cross for Mane.

At the back post, Alexander-Arnold cuts it back for Jota to stroke home.
