Manchester City 2-2 Liverpool: Aguero stunner grabs point for Citizens
A Sergio Aguero strike rescued a point for a lacklustre Manchester City side in a thrilling game against Liverpool that ended in a 2-2 draw at the Etihad Stadium.
Goals from Daniel Sturridge and captain Steven Gerrard overturned an early Edin Dzeko strike but Aguero took advantage of a Pepe Reina error to secure a point for the Citizens as they continue their chase of rivals Manchester United.
An early volley from David Silva underlined the hosts' intentions in the early stages before James Milner drilled a low cross for Dzeko to turn into the net from six yards.
The goal sparked the Reds into action and they dominated proceedings, culminating in Daniel Sturridge's long range strike at the half hour mark.
After the break, the Reds kept up the pressure and it eventually paid off as Gerrard collected the ball in the opponent's half and struck a sensational 30-yard half volley that nestled in the far bottom corner.
However, Liverpool were undone by a rush of blood on Reina's part as he raced out of goal to prevent Aguero from going one on one but the Argentine somehow wrapped his foot around the ball and curled a magnificent finish from a tight angle.
Lucas Leiva had a solid game for the Reds, patrolling the midfield and stifling the influence of David Silva who had an ineffectual game. Maicon also got a run out and nearly set up City's winner in the dying stages.
