In the English Premier League, the match of two favorites of the season took place.
The score was opened by Mohammed Salah, who took the penalty. But soon Manchester City equalized the score. Gabriel Jesus made an accurate shot from the center of the penalty area. The teams could have scored more, but did not use their chances.
“These boys need rest. It’s a difficult time. We want to play, obviously, but I heard Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer yesterday as well and I understand him 100%. We are in the situation quite frequently. I spoke to the Premier League already and spoke to Pep before the game about the five substitutions. Everyone watching is like: ‘Oh, that’s interesting.’ But we have to change things and help the players. We want to play football, it’s great. But playing Wednesday night and then 12:30 on Saturday is a crime and we have to change that,” said Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp after match.
