Mohamed Salah produced an early contender for goal of the season as he majestically weaved in and out of the Manchester City defence.
However, Salah's strike wasn't enough to secure the three points for Liverpool, as Kevin De Bruyne fired Pep Guardiola's side level.
Liverpool and City have been the best two sides in the Premier League for the past couple of years, and the two didn't disappoint in their clash.
City were dominant during the first period, but the Reds responded emphatically during the second half.
And Daily Star Sport looks at five moments you might have missed from Sunday's classic.
Jurgen Klopp's alternative first-half approach
Ever since Jurgen Klopp arrived at Liverpool – in 2016 – he has championed a style of football centred around pressing the ball.
However, on Sunday afternoon, Klopp's side looked to sit off the ball and only press at certain moments.
Unfortunately, for Klopp, it led to City being able to build the play from the back and dominate the pitch.
Roy Keane commented that Liverpool's lack of intensity had led them to look like 'a lower league side' during the half-time analysis on Sky Sports.

Sadio Mane spent the majority of the first half attempting to spin off Ruben Dias to no avail.
Gary Neville picked it up on commentary, questioning why Mane was trying the same move over and over again that hadn't worked all afternoon.
However, the Manchester United icon was forced to eat his words as Mane's quick spin allowed Salah to slip him in for the opener.
The goal was all about Salah's work on the byline, and the Egyptian had brilliantly flicked the ball past Rodri before finding his teammate.
James Milner's defensive struggles
Phil Foden rang rings around James Milner on the right-hand side of the pitch.
Milner was slotting in at right-back against his former side due to an injury for Trent Alexander-Arnold.
But Milner struggled as Foden, and Joao Cancelo continually worked the ball around the former England international, and he was lucky to avoid a red card in the second half.
Luckily, for the natural midfielder, Joel Matip silently put in a good performance for the Reds, and he was Liverpool's saving grace on numerous occasions.
Andy Robertson hasn't missed a beat
Andy Robertson missed the start of the campaign due to injury, and there were worries he would miss a huge chunk of the season.
However, the Scot is already back in the first-team fold, and he was one of Liverpool's few positives from their poor first-half performance.
Robertson was regularly tracking back to win the ball, and he managed to lift the entire Anfield crowd on one occasion.
The left-back winning a corner after pressing the City side caused a rapturous noise similar to that heard at the start of the game when the Reds sing 'You'll Never Walk Alone'.
Battle of the Brazilians
Despite the recent renaissance of David de Gea at Manchester United, Ederson and Alisson are the two names that dominate the best keeper in the league debate.
However, Alisson tends to get the nod of his compatriot for Brazil.
And the pair were both at their 'sweeper-keeper' best during the clash.
Ederson produced one of the ball's of the season to pick out Foden, but Alisson was equal to the pressure to rush off his line and clear the danger.
