Manchester City tied the leaders without goals on Monday at Crystal Palace, to open the door wide for rivals Liverpool to compete strongly for the English Premier League title.
The second-placed Liverpool reduced the difference to 3 points after beating Brighton last Saturday, which strengthens its position in the competition for the Premier League title, especially in light of the presence of a postponed match for the Reds, and a direct confrontation between them may decide the hero this season to a large extent.
City managed to dominate the first half at Palace, but without hitting the net.
City defender Joao Cancelo hit the post in the first half, and midfielder Kevin De Bruyne did the same after the break.
Pep Guardiola’s team pushed with all his attacking force near the end, but he failed to score, wasting two valuable points in his quest to win the league title for the fourth time in the last 5 seasons.
After this tie, Liverpool can reduce the difference to one point if they win the postponed match against Arsenal on Wednesday, which will increase the title race in an exciting way that it missed last season.
Palace consolidated its unbeaten record in 5 consecutive matches in all competitions, and remained 11th in the English Premier League.
