Manchester City-Liverpool final score, highlights: Aguero, Milner score in intense draw

Manchester City and Liverpool played to a 1-1 draw on Sunday at the Etihad, with neither team failing to gain three points and grab a stronger hold of a top-four spot in the Premier League. 

With City entering the match in third and Liverpool in fourth, it was a Sergio Aguero goal that canceled out James Milner’s opener, with Adam Lallana of Liverpool wasting a golden chance to win it late. 

The match was frantic and back and forth, and it certainly felt like one team would grab three points.But each team missed chances and were left with just a point a piece. 

Here’s how it went down.

The opener came just minutes into the second half, when Roberto Firmino was taken down in the box by Gael Clichy. Milner took the spot kick and finished with authority.

City battled back and saw plenty of possession, but it couldn’t get that golden pass to lead to a perfect chance until Kevin de Bruyne set up Aguero in the 69th minute.

And then Lallana has this wide open chance with 10 minutes to go, and he swung and missed.

He didn’t read it right, and it produced that. Shocking.

As a result, both teams still remain in the top four, with Manchester United and Arsenal lurking.
