LIV 2-2 MNC: Pep Guardiola Went Through All The Emotions In The Thrilling Encounter At Anfield Today

Over the last four years, Manchester City and Liverpool has dominated the English football, with the Citizens winning 3 Premier League titles while The Reds have one in the past 4 seasons. And facing each other again at Anfield today, there was never any doubt that it was going to live up to the hype surrounding it.

The first half surprisingly ended goalless, but 14 minutes after the interval, Liverpool took the lead through Sadio Mane.

Mohamed Salah was the architect of the opening goal, skipping past his marker before rolling the ball to Mane who wasted no time in finding the back of the net.

Pep Guardiola's men hit back 10 minutes later when Gabriel Jesus did all the hard work and slid the ball to Phil Foden who directed his shot beyond the reach of Allison.

Foden's equaliser meant that he has now scored more goals against Liverpool than he has managed against any other team so far in his career.

The hosts regained their lead on the 76th minute in a stunning fashion.

Receiving the ball from Curtis Jones close to Man City's 18-yard area, Salah twisted and turned his way through the visitors' defence before finishing off what would be a brilliant solo goal.

But City never relented. And they got back on level terms with 9 minutes remaining on the clock.

Liverpool failed to clear their lines properly, resulting in the ball landing at the feet of De Bruyne who bent it in a way that Allison couldn't catch it even at full stretch.

And with the scoreline still at 2-2, Rodrigo made sure his team walked away with a point, thanks to his incredible block to Fabinho's goal-bound tap-in from Salah's incisive cross.

However, throughout the course of this pulsating encounter at Merseyside, we observed that Guardiola literally went through all the emotions judging from the different ways he reacted in any given moment. Just take a look at these pictures.

Well, we really can't blame Guardiola because in a high profile match like this, emotions are bound to take the better of not just the coaches, but players and viewers as well.

Certainly, Pep will be happy with the result his team got as we head into the international break.
