Sunday’s draw at the Etihad was perfect for the neutral, but nerve-wracking for Liverpool fans, and I’m sure Man City fans too.
Here are some fast facts to digest…
- This game was the first time Manchester City had scored first and not gone on to win in the Premier League this season; they had won all 22 games when scoring first before Sunday.
- Kevin de Bruyne scored his 11th Premier League goal of the season, only netting more in one previous campaign (13 in 2019-20). In all competitions, De Bruyne has scored in his last four matches for City, his longest run of consecutive scoring games for the club.
- Liverpool are now winless in five top-flight matches against City (D3 L2), their joint-longest run without a victory against them along with a five game run between November 2011 and December 2013.
- Diogo Jota and Gabriel Jesus both kept up their records of never losing in a Premier League game when they have scored – Jota is unbeaten in 33 matches (W27 D6) and Jesus in 45 (W42 D3), with only James Milner (54 games) and Darius Vassell (46) scoring in more without losing in Premier League history.
