The big game of the weekend in the Premier League between Manchester City and Liverpool ended in a 1-1 draw after a tight match at the Etihad Stadium.

Mohamed Salah opened the scoring from the penalty spot but Gabriel Jesus earned City a share of the spoils. Kevin de Bruyne blew the chance to give Pep Guardiola's men all three points when he fired a penalty wide.

So which players impressed and disappointed on the day?

Premier League, Standings, Fixtures and Results


Gabriel Jesus - 6.9:

The Brazilian striker made it three goals in as many games this season with a clinical finish inside the area to wipe out Salah's opener. He had two shots for City - only De Bruyne had more - and also had the second most number of touches in the box for his side after Raheem Sterling.

Mohamed Salah - 6.6:

Far from a vintage performance from Salah but, on a day with few big chances, the Egyptian once again showed that he is cool as a cucumber under pressure. He buried his penalty to put Liverpool ahead, had two shots in total and also touched the ball six times in the City area. Only Sterling touched the ball more in the opposition box in this match.


Ferran Torres - 5.4:

An afternoon to forget for the young Spaniard who made no attacking impact whatsoever. He had only one touch in the box, one cross and no shots or dribbles before he was hauled off on 61 minutes for Bernardo Silva.

Kyle Walker - 5.5:

The English defender has been criticised in the past for being rash and he conceded a completely avoidable penalty with a late challenge on Sadio Mane. Salah dispatched the spot-kick to put Liverpool ahead. He won only two duels and no tackles and was one of the worst performers on the pitch when it came to losing possession.


Joao Cancelo - 7.2:

Cancelo had a rather quiet first season at the Etihad but now he is slowly starting to show his talent. He was the best player on the pitch against Liverpool, displaying all of his tactical flexibility from left back. He made the most passes in the final third in the game, one of them creating a big chance. He also did well defensively, making eight recoveries and a match-high two interceptions.
