This is the big one.
Manchester City vs Liverpool recap, highlights & coverage
Liverpool have the slighter tougher run-in when it comes to the remaining fixtures but whoever wins this game will believe they can go on and win the title. We are truly lucky to be witnessing two of the greatest teams in Premier League history going head-to-head for the title.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Manchester City vs Liverpool.
FULL TIME: And breath. Manchester City 2-2 Liverpool. What a game. I didn’t want it to end! I guess Manchester City will see that as a better point than Liverpool but City had big chances to win it. The gap is still just one point at the top of the table.
Riyad Mahrez with a huge chance to win it, but he chips it up and over the bar. Wow.
90th minute, and Mahrez curls a free kick from distance just off target. Looked like it clipped the outside of the post.
Luis Diaz on for Liverpool. Riyad Mahrez on for City. This is all getting rather tense now.
Salah curls wide, then Jesus fires wide with De Bruyne wanting the ball pulled back. This is end-to-end.
NO GOAL! Raheem Sterling finished but he was just offside. After a VAR check, the goal is disallowed. Still 2-2. This game is chaos.
CHANCE! Salah has taken over this game now. He flicks it through to Jota but his shot is saved by Ederson. It’s all Liverpool. City haven’t got going in the second half.
Salah plays a perfect ball to the birthday boy Sadio Mane and makes it 2-2 less than a minute into the half! @LFCUSA
GOALLL! What a start to the second half. Sadio Mane makes it 2-2 inside the first minute. Mohamed Salah with a brilliant turn and pass for the assists and Mane slams home. So easy for Liverpool to carve through City there. What. A. Game.
🚨GOALLL! It’s Manchester City 2-2 Liverpool already. Wow. This game is nuts.
HALF TIME: Manchester City 2-1 Liverpool – What a breathtaking first half. City went ahead through De Bruyne, then Jota equalized after a classy move. However, City were much better as the half wore on and Gabriel Jesus deservedly has them ahead. Wow. Some times the big games don’t deliver but this one has. Big time. We get another 45 minutes of this!? Time to refresh your popcorn, folks…
Aymeric Laporte with one of the best last-ditch tackles you will ever see to deny Diogo Jota. How did he do that!? All came from a moment of hesitation from Rodri, as Liverpool remain dangerous on the break.
What a game. You can’t take your eyes off of this. You just can’t. Every time I look down to type in this in the press box I have to look back up. It’s chaos.
GOALLL! What a ball from Joao Cancelo, and Jesus stays onside to tap home at the back post. 2-1 to Manchester City! They deserve that lead. They’ve been excellent. Especially Cancelo.
CLOSE! Joao Cancelo smashes a low shot which take a nick and hits the outside of the post. City getting a lot of joy when they’re playing more direct behind Alexander-Arnold and Robertson.
WIDE! Joao Cancelo played in over the top and he does superbly to tee up Kevin de Bruyne, but his shot clips the outside of the post.
City cranking through the gears here as a ball is whipped over but John Stones can’t get on the end of it. Liverpool looking a real threat on the break.
Ederson getting real close to allowing an own goal. 😅
City are out nice and early to warm up. A ripple of applause from the home fans. Tension is hanging in the air.
The team news is pretty interesting here… Liverpool go with Jota, Mane and Salah up top. That’s been their best front three all season. Man City go with Raheem Sterling, Foden and De Bruyne up top. Grealish and Mahrez are on the bench.
Welcome to the Etihad Stadium! Great atmosphere building.
🔵🔴 Welcome to the Etihad Stadium!
Huge game. Manchester City vs Liverpool. Let’s do this!
Klopp has no injury issues at all and he was able to rotate his team in the UEFA Champions League win at Benfica in midweek. Jordan Henderson and Joel Matip to come back into the starting lineup as Jota, Mane and Salah start in attack.
Manchester City sit top of the Premier League table but are just one point ahead of Liverpool with eight games of the season to go. Pep Guardiola’s reigning champs looked to be running away with the title this season but they’ve stumbled a little in recent weeks and Liverpool’s sensational form has set up this potential title decider. The big question for Guardiola is how much the absence of Ruben Dias will impact his side in this clash, plus who will he actually pick to start in midfield and attack? He is awash with options in those areas and only Kevin de Bruyne and Phil Foden seem like guaranteed starters right now. This is time for Pep Guardiola to prove, once again, just how good he is.
As for Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool, they are absolutely flying. They face Manchester City at Wembley in the FA Cup semifinal next weekend, plus could meet City in the UEFA Champions League final too, and Klopp relishes these challenges against Pep. In truth, there is a lot of respect between these two coaches and their teams are set up so differently with their style of play but both are brilliant. Liverpool have won 10 Premier League games on the spin heading into this clash and they’ve been grinding out wins in recent weeks to drag themselves back into the title conversation. Can Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane deliver one of their epic displays? They will have to if Liverpool are going to move above City and grab the initiative in the title race ahead of the final month or so of the season.

With nine teams currently separated by four points, from 20th to 12th places, the 2022-23 Premier League relegation scrap is not only set to last until the final day, but the final two months of the season are sure to be one of the wildest roller-coaster rides of all time.
Three clubs will be relegated from the Premier League (and replaced by three teams from the EFL Championship, of course) at season’s end. Never before have this many clubs been this close to the bottom-three, and the bottom of the table, at this point of a season.
How many games remaining between relegation candidates?
There are 23 remaining head-to-head matchups between the nine teams currently in the relegation battle.
Crystal Palace: 8 games (1 against every other team)
Wolves: 4 games
Leeds: 5 games
Everton: 4 games
Nottingham Forest: 4 games
Leicester: 6 games
West Ham: 5 games
Bournemouth: 6 games
Southampton: 4 games
FIFA said Indonesia was removed from staging the 24-team tournament scheduled to start on May 20 “due to the current circumstances” without specifying details.
The decision came after a meeting in Doha between FIFA president Gianni Infantino and Indonesian soccer federation president Erick Thohir.
Israel qualified last June for its first U20 World Cup. But the country’s participation in Friday’s scheduled draw in Bali provoked political opposition this month.
Indonesia is the world’s most populous Muslim-majority nation and does not have formal diplomatic relations with Israel, while publicly supporting the Palestinian cause.
Indonesia’s hosting was cast into doubt on Sunday when FIFA postponed the draw.
It is unclear who could now host the tournament, which was scheduled to be played in six stadiums in Indonesia. Argentina, which did not qualify for the tournament, is reportedly interested in hosting.
“A new host will be announced as soon as possible, with the dates of the tournament currently remaining unchanged,” FIFA said.
The Indonesian soccer federation could be further disciplined by FIFA. A suspension could remove Indonesia from Asian qualifying for the 2026 World Cup, which starts in October.
FIFA seemed to remove all blame Wednesday from Thohir, the former president of Italian club Inter Milan – the team Infantino supports – and a former co-owner of the Philadelphia 76ers.
FIFA staff will continue to work in Indonesia in the months ahead, the governing body said, “under the leadership of President Thohir.”
Soccer and public authorities in Indonesia agreed to FIFA’s hosting requirements in 2019 before being selected to stage the 2021 edition of the U20 World Cup. The coronavirus pandemic forced the tournament to be postponed for two years.
But Indonesian President Joko Widodo said Tuesday evening that his administration objected to Israel’s participation. He told citizens that the country agreed to host before knowing Israel would qualify.
Israel qualified by reaching the semifinals of the U19 European Championship. The team went on to lose to England in that final.
Israel plays in Europe as a member of UEFA after leaving the Asian Football Confederation in the 1970s for political and security reasons.
FIFA bills the men’s U20 World Cup as “the tournament of tomorrow’s superstars.”
Diego Maradona, Lionel Messi and Paul Pogba are previous winners of the official player of the tournament award, and Erling Haaland was the top scorer at the 2019 edition.
