Iheanacho Benched As Man City, Liverpool Draw

By James Agberebi:

Manchester City and Liverpool played out a pulsating 1-1 draw in the Premier League at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

James Milner gave Liverpool the lead in the 50th minute from the penalty spot following a foul by Gael Clichy on Roberto Firmino.

Manchester City drew level in the 68th minute through Sergio Aguero off a brilliant assist from Kevin De Bryune.

In a second half of end-to-end action, the two sides missed several chances to win the game, Aguero and Adam Lallana the biggest culprits.

Nigerian forward Kelechi Iheanacho was an unused substitute in the game.

The draw means City are third in the league table on 57 points but with a game in hand, while Liverpool stay fourth on 56 points
