Watch: Fabinho denied certain goal by unreal last-ditch Rodri tackle
But one moment that caught our eye was this crucial block from Rodri that surely denied Liverpool victory. Jordan Henderson took a free-kick short to Salah, who whipped a cross into the crowded penalty area.
Misjudging the flight of the ball, City goalkeeper Ederson came out of his goal and missed the ball – giving Fabinho a golden opportunity to win the game for Liverpool.
Taking a touch to steady himself, the Brazil international sidefooted the ball towards the empty net but Rodri appeared from nowhere and stretched to make an outstanding block.
