Kevin de Bruyne insisted Manchester City’s 2-2 draw with second-placed Liverpool did not give them the edge in the title race despite holding a one-point advantage with seven games to play in the Premier League.

De Bruyne fired the champions into a fifth-minute lead at the Etihad Stadium but Diogo Jota levelled eight minutes later for the second-placed Reds.

Gabriel Jesus restored City’s advantage before the break but Sadio Mane marked his 30th birthday with a second equaliser for Jurgen Klopp’s men.

Raheem Sterling thought he had put City ahead for a third time against his former club but VAR ruled against him in a tight offside decision and substitute Riyad Mahrez hit the post late on.

Riyad Mahrez wasted a gilt-edged chance to win it in the dying seconds as he lifted his finish over the top.

The result ended Liverpool’s 10-match winning league run and left City a point clear with just seven games of the season remaining.
