Liverpool’s ‘title decider’ with Man City was not most watched Prem game

The title clash between Liverpool and Manchester City was not the most-watched Premier League game this season.

According to the latest figures, the Super Sunday clash that ended 2-2 at the Etihad earned a massive 3.19million in-home viewers on average. But it falls second to Manchester United’s 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Liverpool in October, which earned a 3.65m average.

Sky Sports report that their total on Sunday was a culmination of 7million people. The broadcaster’s MD Jonathan Licht said: “Sunday was another bumper day for our viewers, showing the breadth and depth of our coverage. This weekend saw some huge sporting moments live on Sky Sports, and we are pleased to have delivered another huge day of sports viewing to 7 million people.”

Indeed, the highly-anticipated clash between Man City and the Reds didn't disappoint. Liverpool came from behind twice to earn themselves a point in an enthralling 2-2 draw with City.

Kevin De Bruyne and Diogo Jota scored the opening goals before Gabriel Jesus restored the home side’s lead before half-time. In the second period, Sadio Mane put the Reds back level as both sides failed to find a winning goal.

After the match, Pep Guardiola claimed Man City gave Liverpool ‘life’ with the draw. He said: “I felt we let them have a life from here but Liverpool are a joy to watch, I know how good they are and there is no doubt about that but I am so proud of my team."

Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp insisted his team would ‘not stop chasing’ the reigning champions, saying: "We wanted to make sure that they saw my boys are exceptional as well and I saw that today and am really happy about that. Now it is seven games to go for both teams. We will not stop chasing now. That is clear. But we now have two different competitions.”
