WATCH: DE BRUYNE PLEASED WITH REACTION
WATCH: 'ONE OF MY PROUDEST DAYS'
Here's Pep Guardiola's reaction to the game...
"If you get a point at Man City it’s okay. We could have won this game because their goalkeeper made a few outstanding saves. We could have scored more. The attitude was outstanding and there was a lot of good football. It was good and we can build on it as a performance. In this moment I am still a little disappointed but tomorrow I’ll be happy."

WATCH: 'TOMORROW I'LL BE HAPPY'
Here's Jurgen Klopp's reaction to the game...
This is what Pep Guardiola had to say when interviewed by Sky Sports' Geoff Shreeves. It's fair to say he was proud of his side's performance...
"How we fought, how we run, the spirit we showed, it’s one of
the happiest days of my life as a manager. The way we played we conceded some
chances but we created more chances again, but our problem is we don’t score
WATCH: MILNER PLEASED WITH POINT
Here are the highlights for what was a thrilling game at the Etihad...
REDKNAPP ON THE REFEREE
It was a tough game for referee Michael Oliver, but Jamie Redknapp thought he handled the game pretty well...
"He made a lot of good decisions. There were one or two he
looks back on where he may think he could have changed his mind, but we are
talking fractions of seconds. It’s easier for us because we get eight or nine
times to look at it. I thought he did pretty well."
"It was a super game. Today both teams were super. It would
have been hard for any team to lose. City had the better chances throughout but
Liverpool dug in."
Was Milner worried referee Michael Oliver would give a penalty against him for his last-ditch tackle on Raheem Sterling...
"It was a fifty-fifty tackle. It’s one of those, you’ve seen them given
but sometimes they are not [given, luckily for me this one wasn’t given."
Liverpool's goalscorer, James Milner, has been speaking to Geoff Shreeves...
"Both teams went for it and I’m sure it was a good game for
the neutral to watch. It’s disappointing when you’ve been up. I think both sides
had chances after that so it was probably a good game to watch. Maybe a draw was fair in the end."
MILNER'S IMPRESSIVE RECORD
HOW IT STANDS

90: There will be FOUR added minutes. We will have a winner?
89: SUB! Lucas is on in place of Firmino for the visitors.

Jamie Carragher on Super Sunday: "The problem City have got is with Silva and De Bruyne either side of the holding midfielder, they can't get anyone to press. Lallana and Firmino have stepped up this half, now it's down to Coutinho, can he get more involved?"

54: YELLOW! Silva was also booked for his reaction the the decision.
NEVILLE ON PENALTY
Gary Neville on Super Sunday: "It's not as clear cut a penalty as I first thought. He does make contact with the ball. It looks really clumsy from one angle, it's a difficult one, and they're not happy the Man City players. It's a 50-50 for me."
53: YELLOW! Clichy was booked for his part in the penalty. While it was a clumsy challenge, City will feel aggrieved after he got a piece of the ball.
