There is no better trench than Anfield for an atomic Liverpool, indecipherable for Guardiola. The City has suffered many ambushes in a cursed place. It doesn't matter if he plays better or worse, he always encounters a rival possessed by the spirit that breathes in the stands. The English champion crashed in, with the unexpected Rodri. But when the meeting is out of control there is no other team that expresses itself better than Liverpool, an expert in transition situations.
The king of Europe advanced galloping among complaints from the City over an earlier action in which Alexander-Arnold He touched her with his hand in the area, unattended by the referee. There the goal of Fabinho, Liverpool sniper. The Brazilian punished a bad clearance of Gundogan with a portentous auction, unattainable for Bravo. There is no one as categorical as the former Real Madrid, a player with tentacles that appears everywhere. Liverpool uncorked the game at the best moment of the City, pale when fitting the 1-0.
A recurring movie every time the Manchester box arrives in Anfield, where his feet are chattering. From Bruyne he gave several candies to his companions but they did not take advantage of any of his assistance, tormented a few minutes later after the goal of Salah. The Egyptian headed a center of Robertson to endorse the transcendence of the sides to Klopp, even more in attack than in defense. With the 2-0 the City had to appeal to the epic of always.
He did not resign from the meeting because he is not willing to abdicate at this point but he was not lucky enough to face it either. In an unfortunate attempt Angelino he ran into the wood although it was a reflon. The great approach of the visiting team in a first act that looked like a nightmare as it happened two years ago in the Champions League. He gives himself face to face in one way or another, daring or more warm. Anfield is Comanche territory for a City that does not know how to win since 2003.
Nor did he hit the key this time, repressed by Peanut. The Senegalese made a measured center of Hendersonrusty Bravo on the action. The 3-0 showed that at this point in Anfield they not only feel candidates but even favorites to the throne, now owned by the City. Both maintain the prettiest rivalry in England, accentuated if you want for the outstanding accounts that some have with Sterling, booed since he changed the city of the Beatles to that of Oasis.
It took time to react Guardiola, too contemplative. Gabriel Jesus entered by Omen in the absence of twenty minutes, little incentive for a heartless city. Although out of nowhere, Liverpool trembled, surprised by a robbery Fabinho that culminated Bernard with a precise touch, glued to the wood. The visiting team grew and protested a push to Sterling, so much that the Catalan coach went into a rage, enraged by the decisions he made Michael Oliver.
There is no glory without suffering, Liverpool rewarded after another majestic performance against a City that remains in a delicate situation to reissue the title. There is a lot left and he has the example of the previous course but it seems that things are now different, obsessed as is the fan of Anfield for raising a league that resists him since 1990. The aspirant takes nine points to the champion on an afternoon in which It was shown that Liverpool never walks alone.
