Forward cancels out James Milner's penalty for Liverpool in 1-1 draw at Etihad Stadium

Man City 1-1 Liverpool

Sergio Aguero's goal kept Manchester City above Liverpool in the Premier League as they fought back to earn a pulsating 1-1 draw at the Etihad Stadium.

After a goalless first-half finished with a flurry of chances, Liverpool went ahead when James Milner coolly scored a penalty following Gael Clichy's foul on Roberto Firmino.

But Aguero converted Kevin De Bruyne's brilliant centre on 68 minutes.

Then De Bruyne rattled the post and Aguero blasted over for City late on, while Liverpool's Adam Lallana scuffed a fantastic opportunity when he was unmarked six yards out late on.

The draw leaves Man City third, one point and a place above Liverpool having played one match more.
