The big hit of the English Premier League between Liverpool and Manchester City yesterday exceeded the already high expectations. Thanks to a 3: 1 (2: 0) win, Liverpool's lead over Leicester is already eight points, while Manchester City's fourth-placed team are nine points ahead. Liverpool pulls the competition on and off.
The game could not have been better for the Reds: Fabinho took the hosts 1-0 in the lead six minutes into the game. The hit, however, was highly controversial: Before the attack, there had been a hand game of a Liverpool player in his own penalty area. The City players complained penalty, the ball was also on the hand, but this was not considered punishable – perhaps also because there had been before a hand game of a city player. The goal counted – and Liverpool put in immediately after: Mohamed Salah met after 13 minutes to 2: 0. Sadio Mane made it 3-0 after the break (51 ').
As is common in England, the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) is rarely used to change decisions made. So Liverpool claimed a foul in vain as Bernardo Silva shortened to 1: 3 (78th). A short time later Manchester City wanted a penalty, referee Michael Oliver also did not give. Although the ball was in the hands of the Liverpool player, the first decision remained here after the VAR control.
Bayern played for Flick
With a 4-0 victory of his FC Bayern Munich over Dortmund David Alaba moves into the team camp of the Austrian national team. After the victory, it is increasingly likely that interim coach Hansi Flick will retain command at Bayern until the end of the season.
The Bavarian grandees Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and Uli Hoeneb have already spoken out in favor. Hoeneb: "One thing is clear: after such an outstanding week with two convincing victories, one can not say that we will send the Hansi Flick away for now."
Rummenigge saw it similarly. "After our best performance of the season, we will work with Hansi Flick until further notice, saying that the two games against Piraeus and Dortmund are the finishing line, which he has brilliantly crossed, and now we will continue with him in peace has our confidence now. "
The coaching hunt will not be stopped, but it can be calmly tackled after the performance explosion in the League Summit and successfully concluded with a "long-term solution" that Hoeneb urged. "Until it comes to that, I think Hansi Flick is not a bad solution," commented Hoeneb.
At the right time comes the international break for Oliver Glasner and VfL Wolfsburg. After the 0: 2 in Leverkusen the wolves are now seven games without a win. Bellarabi (25th) and Paulinho (96th) defeated OFB team goalkeeper Pavao Pervan.
