Manchester City's Rodri Produced Incredible Goal-Saving Block Against Liverpool And It's Next Level

Rodri's brilliant intervention salvaged a point for City who drew 2-2 with Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday night.

Liverpool whipped in a late freekick, searching for a winner against their perceived biggest Premier League title rivals.

The ball ended up at the far post, and with City stopper Ederson stranded, Fabinho seemingly had an open goal in which to score in - and thus, win the game for Liverpool.

However, the Brazilian took a touch which just allowed Rodri to sneak in and deny his opposite number.

Speaking on Sky Sports commentary right after the block, Gary Neville said: "What a block that is. I think Fabinho takes a bit of time and thinks it's in."

"it's an open goal but gives Rodri time to slide, fists clenched celebrating, he makes a right mess of it Ederson, he controls it, it's just a brilliant, brilliant recovery tackle," Neville added.

Hundreds of City fans have also reacted to the block across social media.

One said: "How on earth did Rodri block that?"

City were in control for large parts of the game at Anfield, but fell behind twice courtesy of Sadio Mane and a wondergoal from Mohamed Salah.

Phil Foden and Kevin de Buryne responded for City, as they continued to pile pressure on looking for a winner.

But the best chance would fall to Fabinho, with Rodri saving the points for City.

The point for Liverpool and City leaves the teams in second and third respectively in the Premier League table, with Chelsea staying top by a point.

The title race is still delicately poised heading into next week's international break.
