One of the talking points coming out of the game though was Kyle Walker's sublime bicycle kick goal-line clearance to deny Mohamed Salah an injury time winner.City scored every penalty but Gini Wijnaldum saw his spot-kicked saved by Claudio Bravo early in the shootout.

Van Dijk's 65 game run has become something of a legend since signing for Liverpool, with rival fans debating whether it has indeed happened or not.There' no doubt about it now though, Van Dijk has been beaten and Liverpool fans will hope it doesn't become a regular occurrence in the coming season.
