Liverpool beats ManCity and is now 9 points ahead of the champion
Liverpool have won the duel with the champions in the Premier League. The Champions League winner won 3-1 and remains unbeaten after the 12th round.
The fact that Liverpool are currently the best team in England, he proved impressively on early Sunday evening. Jurgen Klopp's team withstood pressure from Manchester City, easing most of the attacks and making more of their own possession.
If the chance offered, went without the injured Xherdan Shaqiri lined up Liverpool without detours towards the opposing goal. This was already rewarded in the quarter-finals: Fabinho scored with a long shot and Mohamed Salah after a perfect cross from Andrew Robertson with a flying ball. Shortly after the break Sadio Mane even increased to 3: 0.
Manchester City, shortened only by the Portuguese Bernardo Silva in the 78th minute, has been waiting 16 years for a championship victory at Liverpool's Anfield. That did not stop the Citizens from winning the Premier League four times in the last eight years.
This year, however, the defeat in Liverpool could at least be decisive. The difference between the leader and the master has grown to nine points. That is a considerable difference, considering that the Liverpoolers have only scored 19 points in the last 50 Premier League rounds.
Currently, Manchester City is not even the first pursuer of Liverpool. Leicester and Chelsea are still classified in front of the team of Pep Guardiola. Chelsea, which is surprisingly well presented despite the transfer ban and various important departures, will visit Manchester City in less than two weeks after the international break. (Ram / SDA)
