The Premier League title race remains nip and tuck after Manchester City and Liverpool played out a pulsating 2-2 draw on Sunday in Manchester. 

City took the lead in the first five minutes when Kevin De Bruyne's deflected shot flew past a despairing Alisson in goal. 

But Liverpool bit back soon after, with Diogo Jota tapping home from close range. 

And in a pulsating first half, Gabriel Jesus tapped Manchester City back into the lead only for Sadio Mane to equalize 47 seconds after half-time. 

The draw means City has a one-point lead over Liverpool at the top of the Premier League with just seven games remaining of the season. 

From the first whistle, it was an enthralling battle at the Etihad Stadium. 

Two of the most entertaining teams in Europe are both in excellent form and coached by two of the best managers in the world. 

With a powder keg of an atmosphere, it seemed both teams fed off that energy -- with each preferring attack over defense. 

Manchester City landed the first punch of the afternoon 

Belgium midfielder De Bruyne's strike from the edge of the area deflected into the Liverpool goal to the delight of the home fans. 

Just when City was looking to build a head of steam, Liverpool hit straight back 

Jota tapping home after a delicate pass from Trent Alexander-Arnold. 

But, showing its champion pedigree, City once again struck back with Jesus -- who had not scored since September  

justifying his selection as he tapped home from Joao Cancelo's well-timed cross. 

With his side trailing, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp might've had some stern words for his players at half-time.
