On the other hand, the script changed further at the Etihad as former Liverpool star Philippe Countinho scored a second in the 69th minute to make things extremely tough for Guardiola’s men.
Liverpool fans and players felt that now they finally had their destiny in their hands and it was their talisman Mo Salah who scored the second goal in the 84th minute and went into rapturous celebration. But just as Salah and his teammates celebrated, what they had thought could be a title-winning goal, Liverpool fans from the stand broke the news that two Ilkay Gundogan goals on either side of a Rodri strike had actually helped Manchester City come back from the dead as they now led 3-2.
