Gary Lineker has called on the handball law to be changed

Gary Lineker has described the 1-1 draw between Liverpool and Manchester City as “pulsating” as both sides tried in vain to secure three points.

Jurgen Klopp’s Reds and Pep Guardiola’s City treated fans to a match filled with attacking excitement, as both sides had chances to score many more than just the one goal apiece.

Describing the match on his personal Twitter account, Match of the Day presenter Lineker posted twice, labelling the game as “the best one-all draw” he had viewed in a while.

Klopp’s side failed to do the double over City after winning 1-0 on New Year’s Eve at Anfield, which would have seen them leapfrog Sunday’s opponents into third.

Liverpool took the lead in the 57th minute through former City ace James Milner, who stroked home from the penalty spot to make it seven successful spot kicks from seven.

In a game that included miss-of-the-season contenders, Fernandinho and Adam Lallana failed to convert golden opportunities to find the back of the net throughout the match.

However, it was Argentina international Sergio Aguero that found the back of the net for City, as he equalised just 18 minutes after Milner’s goal following good work from Kevin De Bruyne.

The draw leaves Liverpool in fourth place and one point behind Guardiola’s City, as both sides look to keep their increasingly thin title hopes alive.
