Strongest Liverpool Lineup vs Manchester City: Attacking crisis for the Reds

20 March 2017, 01:57 | Joan Schultz

Former City player James Milner put Liverpool ahead in a ferocious, end-to-end Premier League contest with a 51st-minute penalty but Sergio Aguero's 25th goal of the season earned City a share of the spoils.

Both teams will return to Premier League action after the worldwide break on the weekend of April 1.

When Liverpool fell short of winning the Premier League three years ago, the natural response was to say they'd blown it.

"It's the way you have to play against good sides; it was intense, we defended well".

Pep Guardiola was surprisingly chipper after Manchester City's 1-1 draw with Liverpool, calling it "one of the proudest days" of his career. If you do it, it's a success and if we don't do it, we will be disappointed, but we would not stop working and would not stop believing in this project.

Guardiola is preparing for a mass clear out of players this summer with as many as 18 members of their squad at risk of being axed.

But he said he took as much pleasure from the way City responded to the "sadness" of their midweek Champions League exit in Monaco. "They deserved the goal, of course, but I thought we could have scored more".

In an another exciting clash of EPL, Liverpool travel to Manchester City on Sunday with Jurgen Klopp's side looking to maintain their impressive record against teams from the top six this season.

There was an very bad lot of anger, amid some gloriously furious football, and one moment of incredulity as Adam Lallana produced possibly the miss of the season - if not the decade. We were sad [in midweek] so that is why I am so happy.

The first half, which started in heavy rain, was open, fast-paced and keenly fought.

In between, and after, there were quite a few chances and penalty shouts that went begging, but none more so than when Adam Lallana, with the score at 1-1, somehow managed to miss his shot with an empty net screaming at him.

In the end, they roused themselves to beat a team that hadn't won in the league since eight days before Christmas and Middlesbrough were so bad at times, United should have been good enough to beat them even if they'd played another game yesterday morning.

"We a phase between 50-70 where we had them and didn't close the game". More than ever I want to help the club - if they want to stay with me - and make the next step forward.

In a second half of end-to-end action, the two sides missed several chances to win the game, Aguero and Adam Lallana the biggest culprits.
