Two shots on goal, two goals: leaders Liverpool have in the top match of the Premier League against reigning champions and pursuers Manchester City within 13 minutes a 2-0 lead shot out. The Brazilian Fabinho scored with a long shot from around 20 meters to the early Liverpool lead in the 6th minute. Only seven minutes later, Mohamed Salah headed home for a Robertson cross from the half-field. Dream start for the team of coach Jurgen Klopp!
The German had already said in the run-up to the game: "It would be nice if we took every chance that we get." That could not have done much better for his team. In the first few minutes it was Manchester City that put a lot of pressure on the Klopp team – and chances came: Raheem Sterling headed home free after a De Bruyne free-kick.
Before the goal to 1: 0 caused already a supposed hand game of Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold for vortex, the City players called for penalty. Then the hosts countered the team of coach Pep Guardiola mercilessly. What an initial phase!
