Manchester City beat Liverpool at Anfield to strengthen their claim on the Premier League title

The bad phase of Liverpool continues.

Manchester City beat Liverpool at Anfield. Pep Guardiola’s men thrashed the defending champion in their own territory.

Both teams came up with the best sets of players they have. The first half ended in a 0-0 score. Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan missed a penalty in the first half. But he made up his mistake in the second half by scoring a brace.

Gundogan put City in the lead in the 50th minute. Mo Salah equalized in the 63rd minute from the spot. But that was not enough. Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson made two cheap mistakes, and Manchester City capitalized on them. Phil Foden sealed the victory for City in the 83rd minute.

After the game Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp said, “For big parts of the game we were brilliant – we played really good football. I can see in your eyes you see it differently. I really liked our performance in the first half. At the start of the second half, City changed the system and we didn’t give enough options to play and then gave the first goal away.”

“We scored the equalizer and at that moment it looked like the game could go our way, and then we make two massive mistakes – everyone saw them. We were really down after that, it’s tough to take, and then Foden scored the fourth goal with a genius situation.”

“The performance was good most of the time. Really, really good. If we had played like this more often we would not be 10 points behind City.”

On Allison’s mistake, he said, “There’s no real explanation for Alisson’s errors. In the first one we didn’t give him many options, but the second one he just mishit the ball. Maybe he had cold feet or something. It sounds funny but it could be. Ali saved our life plenty of times, and tonight he made two mistakes – that’s how it is.”

Liverpool have now lost 3 back to back games at Anfield, the first time since 1992. They are now 10 points behind the league leaders Manchester City. It will be tough for them to retain their crown.
