When Sadio Mane headed home 3-0 just 6 minutes into the second half, the decision was made. Never before in 232 Anfield games had Liverpool lost to a lead of 2 or more goals.
The difference had the team of Jurgen Klopp made at the beginning of the first half. Fabinho, with a nice long-range shot (6th) and Mohamed Salah in the lead (13th), successfully completed two early counterattacks – with the first two shots on target.
Silva Gate remains waste
Manchester City, on the other hand, was the more active team over long stretches, winning major opportunities through, among others, Sergio Aguero and Angelino. The efforts paid off too late: Bernardo Silva scored in the 78th minute to 3: 1-closing.
Liverpool, who started without the injured Xherdan Shaqiri, is thus continuing in the table: The advantage over the newly placed Leicester is 8 points. Meanwhile ManCity slips to fourth place.
