Liverpool VS Man City  the last dance of  klopp and  pep

Liverpool and Man City play out an stunning 1-1 draw at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola's final Premier League meeting; Alexis Mac Allister equalled John Stones' opener but none of them can’t win 3 points.

Manchester City survived for a 1-1 draw in a thrilling encounter at Anfield and Arsenal remained as top of the Premier League.

The final Premier League meeting between Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola lived up to its billing as the injury-hit hosts roared back from John Stones' clever first-half opener from a corner.

Alexis Mac Allister scored the leveler from the penalty spot early in the second period after Ederson had wiped out Darwin Nunez from Nathan Ake's poor backpass, injuring himself in the process. Klopp's side, with Ibrahima Konate added to their absentee list and with Mohamed Salah only fit enough to feature as a substitute, had been second best in the first half but dominated the rest of the game, missing a series of chances, with Luis Diaz the main culprit.

A pulsating contest, which featured Kevin De Bruyne angrily remonstrating with Guardiola after being substituted, almost took another twist when City substitute Jeremy Doku struck a low shot against the inside of the post in the 89th minute.

The City winger then survived a VAR check for a penalty after a high-boot challenge on Mac Allister in stoppage time. "In all positions on the pitch, it is 100 per cent a foul and it's a yellow card," Klopp said of the incident afterwards.

"They said he hit the ball but he can only do that because his foot is right there. But if the ball is not there, he kills him - the foot has nothing to do with it. It is as easy as that. For all football people on the planet, it's a penalty."

After playing additional 10 miniutes the whistle has been blown and thats the end of the one of the greatest modern football coach rivalry of the premier league as it seen.
