How did the players get on, out of 10?
Below we reveal our ratings from Wembley.
Alisson: 5 – Could have done better with Sterling’s goal and looked a little shaky.
Trent Alexander-Arnold: 6 – Rattled into some challenges but far from his usual marauding display.
Joe Gomez: 5 – Caught in possession a few times at center back and them moved out to right back.
Virgil Van Dijk: 7 – Stood tall and set up the equalizer. Classy player who grew into the game.
Jordan Henderson: 5 – Struggled to get going and took a knock in the second half.
Fabinho: 5 – Couldn’t stop City gliding through Liverpool’s defense.
Georginio Wijnaldum: 5 – Really struggled. Few loose touches and only player to miss a penalty.
Mohamed Salah: 7 – Could have scored three in the second half alone. Dangerous but didn’t score.
Roberto Firmino: 6 – One superb effort in the first half and decent movement, as always.
Divock Origi: 4 – His teammates couldn’t find his runs out wide. Ineffective.
Joel Matip on for Trent Alexander-Arnold (67′): 7 – Headed home the equalizer.
Naby Keita on for Fabinho (67′): 6 – Provided some surging runs. Good shot saved.
Adam Lallana on for Jordan Henderson (79′): N/A
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on for Divock Origi (79′): N/A
Xherdan Shaqiri on for Roberto Firmino (79′): N/A
Claudio Bravo: 7 – A few dodgy moments in the second half but saved the crucial spot kick. A very good back-up goalkeeper.
Kyle Walker: 6 – Dug deep defensively but rarely threatened going forward.
John Stones: 7 – Calm on the ball and did his best to hold City’s defense together.
Nicolas Otamendi: 6 – Dragged out of position quite a lot but made some great last-ditch interventions.
Oleksandr Zinchenko: 6 – Tough outing against Salah but kept plugging away. Scored his pen.
Rodri: 5 – Caught on the ball so many times. Has to get use to the pace of the game in England. Fast.
David Silva: 7 – Proper magician. Glides around the pitch with ease and set up Sterling’s goal.
Kevin De Bruyne: 8 – Constant threat, even though his final pass or shot was a little off.
Leroy Sane: 4 – Injured early on, which is a big shame. Last minutes in a Man City shirt?
Raheem Sterling: 8 – Scored one, but should have scored a few more. Superb pace, but poor finishing.
Bernando Silva: 7 – Another classy and tireless display. Criminally underrated.
Gabriel Jesus on for Leroy Sane (14′): 6 – Scored the winning penalty kick and put himself about.
Ilkay Gundogan on for David Silva (61′): 3 – One of the worst sub displays ever. Gave the ball away countless times. Scored his penalty kick though.
Phil Foden on for Kevin de Bruyne (89′): N/A
