Aguero, Ferdinand & more: Twitter reacts as Liverpool hold Man City
Sergio Aguero, Rio Ferdinand and Lucas Leiva all tweet their thoughts after Liverpool secure a 2-2 draw with Manchester City
Sergio Aguero scored a brilliant lob to help Manchester City secure a draw with Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
Goals from Daniel Sturridge and Steven Gerrard had put Liverpool ahead after Edin Dzeko’s first-half strike, but Aguero’s effort rescued a point in the 78th minute.
Here is the best of the Twitter reaction, in chronological order, after an entertaining tie at Eastlands.
Hull City midfielder David Meyler (@DavidMeyler) is impressed by Sturridge’s fourth Liverpool goal: “Oh wow Sturridge what a strike!”
Former Chelsea midfielder Jody Morris (@morriskid) is glad to see the striker not bust out his usual moves after scoring: “Buzzing the dance never came out!”
Ex-Wimbledon striker Jason Euell (@jasoneuell) enjoys a Gerrard special: “Stevie G…. Damnnnnnn! #LFC”
But ex-Reds captain Phil Thompson (@Phil_Thompson4) isn’t in high spirits for long: “Oh Pepe,Pepe,Pepe?”
And Joey Barton (@Joey7Barton) can’t understand the keeper’s rationale: “Why did the keeper come? When keepers come that far out it always ends in tears. #stayathomecats”
Reading striker Noel Hunt (@boyhunt) is left speechless (almost) by Aguero’s goal: “Awwww holy god!!!! What a goal!!! Aguero!! That angle was tighter that a Camels Arse in a sandstorm!! #Tiiiiiggghhtttt”

Reds midfielder Lucas Leiva (@LucasLeiva87_) agrees with his team-mate: “Really disappointed. I think we deserved more today, anyway we have to keep working. Fans brilliant again. YNWA!”
City striker Aguero (@aguerosergiokun) reveals who his goal is for: “A tough match, but it was a fair result. As I always say, we’ll fight until the end…. My kid said to me today, ‘you’ll score a goal for me today, won’t you, daddy?’ – So today’s goal is dedicated to him. Love you, Ben!”
Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand (@rioferdy5) felt Liverpool were unlucky: “What a finish by Aguero. #Lfc deserved to win that game….good game.”

Celtic manager Neil Lennon (@OfficialNeil) lavishes praise on Gerrard: “Magnificent goals from Gerrard and Aguero today..Stevie seems to be getting better..what a player!”
Dietmar Hamann (@DietmarHamann) doesn’t have to pick sides as his former clubs draw: “Good game at the Etihad .fair result but #LFC slightly edged it …doesn’t really help either side!”
Finally, QPR shareholder Amit Bhatia (@Amit_Bhatia99) enjoyed Craig Bellamy’s punditry: “I really enjoyed listening to Craig Bellamy. Made a lot of sense and seemed spot on. #thingsineverthoughtidsay”
