Manchester City and Liverpool played a simply spectacular match on Sunday at the Etihad, with a ridiculous number of clear-cut chances and somehow only two goals scored. It was a fair 1-1 draw in the end because both teams deserved a result, but it should have been a 3-3 draw, AT LEAST.

FIRST HALF

The initial period was full of action, with multiple offside calls, multiple penalty shouts, multiple saves and multiple chances. And yet, somehow, someway, by some weird reason there were no goals.

Both teams played really well and really hard, and it's fair to say each had a big chance. Raheem Sterling and Fernandinho missed an open net on the same play for City, and Adam Lallana forced a wonderful save out of Willy Caballero in Liverpool's biggest opportunity of the half.

At halftime, an awesome game. No goals. Yet.

SECOND HALF

The final period started with a stupid penalty by Gaël Clichy on Roberto Firmino, and James Milner easily scored the spot kick to give Liverpool the lead. City had 40 minutes to try and come back, and they can always count on Sergio Agüero: after a fantastic cross from Kevin De Bruyne along the ground, El Kun slotted the ball home with ease to tie the game.

The final minutes were simply breathtaking, with both teams having some incredible chances but not being able to find the back of the net and win the match, until referee Michael Oliver blew the final whistle and put an end to one of the best Premier League games of the season.
