Unbelievable. Do officials just not bother penalizing Liverpool? Milner had to be given a second yellow. Clear a decision you would ever see

Good first half, City looking tasty. But if you don't stick the ball in the net....

I don't think there was enough in it for a foul on Foden, based on this year's directive.
It seems that the directive is weighted in the defender's favour. Forwards going down under a little bit of contact from a defender aren't getting the decisions but defenders going down under minimal contact from an attacker are still getting the soft decisions.

Great game. Would always take a poijlnt vs city but at 2-1 up with 13 mins to go you have to close it out if you want to win the league.

Milner absolutely should have been off. Ref had 1 big decision really and bottled it.

Well what a game - certainly some talking points

Positive - Salah- just world class and must be the best in the Prem at the moment and certainly around the best in the world , what a goal , tough to beat that , great ball for Mane finish as well

Foden - what a player he is going to be - just quality on the ball , so calm on the ball - best young player in the world ?

Was just a superb game

Negatives - poor from Milner , should have a been a second yellow and no idea why the ref didn’t give it - he nearly ruined the game the ref , poor and not good enough

We clearly missed TAA but another good work out for VVD

What a block from Rodri at the end as well

Still see those two at the top two teams in the league

In other news how great are Brentford doing 😂👏👏

Yes that block was immense. Don't think Fab could have done much more.

I'm the first to defend refs. Did a great job...except Milner's second (non) yellow.

Yeah Fabinho first touch was superb and you just have to applaud Rodri

It was a clear yellow for Milner but the ref was inconsistent with the small fouls but in the end he didn’t take away from the quality of the teams and the game itself

I also have to ask how the hell does Foden not start each game for England - build the team around him , streets ahead of Grealish who maybe it’s looking out of his depth a little maybe
