One player deserves 33% of credit for Trent's goal vs Man City — explained in pictures

Liverpool managed to take a point from the Etihad Stadium thanks to Trent Alexander-Arnold's equaliser against Man City in the 80th minute.

Mohamed Salah registered the assist, but there's one more player who played an important role in the episode.

It is Cody Gakpo who did not even have to touch the ball but managed to clear the space and win some time for Trent to shoot.

Here's Bernardo Silva controlling that space seconds before the goal. He can attempt to intercept Salah's pass into the box or attack Gakpo if he receives the ball outside the penalty area.

Gakpo, however, makes a sudden run into the box, forcing Bernardo to drop off — which creates space for Trent who rushes into that area.

Salah feeds the ball to Alexander-Arnold, and Silva is a second too late to block his shot that goes into the far corner.
