Liverpool played out a goalless draw against Manchester City in an entertaining contest at Anfield on Sunday. The defending champions will be rueing the chance in the 86th minute when Riyad Mahrez squandered a great chance by blasting a late penalty over the bar on Sunday afternoon. While both the teams did not have too many clear chances at goal in the first half, the second half also played out in a similar manner. In terms of possession, City enjoyed more of it but failed to convert any of the chances. Liverpool’s star striker Mo Salah also failed to make much of an impact on a relatively quiet afternoon. With this result, Man City return to the top of the table, ahead of Chelsea due to goal difference.
