The 1-1 draw meant that City maintained their record of winning 18 Premier League matches in a row.
Liverpool fell short of matching Pep Guardiola’s record by a single game, after ending their run on 17 wins.
City fans were delighted with the result, and suggested that failing to match the Citizens’ record by a single match was similar to missing out on the Premier League title last season by a single point.
“@ManCity 18 games won. @LFC 17 games won, 1 drawn… that’s got to be like… the equivalent of losing the Prem..by 1pt,” said one City fan on Twitter.
“That I’m afraid is the story of liverpool fc… always the bridesmaid,” said another City supporter.
“Klopp and Liverpool bottle yet another record,” claimed one fan. “Am I even surprised?”
“18 games unbeaten run my a**…the record is still with Manchester City… I repeat, they have NOT equalled Man City’s record. Gotta respect Pep and what he achieved,” added another supporter.
“Hey @ManCity who has the 18 game winning streak still? Asking for me,” said one Twitter user.
Another City fan tweeted: “winning 18 in a row not for everyone #mancity.”
“Not easy winning 18 league games in a row. Not many people can do that #pep #MANLIV #ManCity,” added another supporter.
“18 straight wins in England isn’t for everybody @ManCity,” said one fan.
“Still the greatest ever premier league team 18 wins a row.”
Despite dropping two points against United, Liverpool are still six points ahead of City in the title race.
Guardiola will know that the title is back in his hands, however, as if City win all of their remaining matches, they’ll be crowned champions for a third successive season.
United took the lead at Old Trafford through Marcus Rashford, after a pinpoint Daniel James cross.
Liverpool’s Adam Lallana poached a loose ball at the far post to equalise for the Reds with just five minutes left on the clock.
