City hit back to earn a draw with Liverpool

This was not a game for managers, the tactical control that such a position demands was never possible, but it should be one for those who will help Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp shape their summer transfer plans. To get a point at Manchester City for (any) team in the world is absolutely OK.

Ex-City man James Milner's 51st-minute penalty put Liverpool ahead at a soggy Etihad Stadium, but Sergio Aguero's leveller 21 minutes from time earned the hosts a deserved share of the spoils.

Both sides have plenty to play for, but a stalemate could be on the cards. Klopp joked when asked about Guardiola's response at a news conference. I could see in training, the guys were so sad.

"The easy angle is to say there'll be goals because of both teams' defensive frailties, but it's time now for both of them to learn".

"The lads did really well, so I'm fine with this".

Arsenal suddenly look the most vulnerable of them following four defeats in five league games and with continuing uncertainty about whether Arsene Wenger will still be their manager next season.

For all City's neat play in midfield, Liverpool created the best chances and Caballero produced a particularly athletic save to deny Firmino soon after Milner's goal. It's the way you have to play against good sides.

After crashing out of the Champions League to Monaco midweek, Manchester City will be looking to bounce back quickly against Liverpool, who have been a thorn in their side in recent fixtures. "Why? Because we lived through a tough two days after being out of the Champions League with our mood at what happened in Monaco".

"I can not run around after a draw against Man City, but of course it's a success".

Park tied for fifth at the Bank of Hope Founders Cup, and won the HSBC Women's Champions in Singapore two weeks ago. New Zealander Lydia Ko shot a 63 on Saturday to be in a tie for seventh at 16-under 200.

"You can not plan an ugly game".

Liverpool took the lead and ultimately managed a draw at Man City on Sunday.

"You can not imagine", Guardian quoted Guardiola as saying.

After the "little horse" comment, Mourinho added "perhaps we will be able to race next year" which proved prophetic as Chelsea sprinted away from the field.

"We a phase between 50-70 where we had them and didn't close the game". I don't think so. It's really hard to do this. Then we go again.

Guardiola has won two Champions Leagues, six domestic titles and four cups in his stellar career. "All the rest must fight with everything they have until the end of season".

"If we do it then that's a success and if we don't then we will be disappointed. If we do it, that's a success, and if we don't we will be disappointed but we will not stop working or believing in this project".
