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”

Liverpool left-back Jose Enrique (‏@jose3enrique3) felt that the Reds deserved to win: “Great game by the team today. For sure that we deserve the three points. Now trying to think about the next game and win it :-)”

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.”

Former Everton midfielder Kevin Kilbane ‏(@kdkilbane77) names Aguero’s strike as his goal of the match: “Great game at The Etihad this afternoon. Four class goals. Aguero the pick of the goals for me.”

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”
