Liverpool vs M. CityThey win the citizens in 9 points
The leader, exaggerated by his almost perfect start and the hellish rhythm of his pieces, Arroll (3-1) to the City leaving him in fourth place and nine points from the top. Guardiola hits bottom in Anfield (it is the stadium where he has lost the most times (four) increasing his black legend against Klopp. No one has won him so many times (nine). The German has taken Mourinho's place as the 'enemy' 1 'number of Pep. It's already your kryptonite.
Liverpool does not make prisoners. Devourer of champions and 'coconuts', the 'reds' do not fail in the big clashes in a den in which it has 46 games! without losing in league. All rivals get worse cornered by the local push. And the City, champion of the four English titles last year and winner of the last two Premier Records, is not immune to this virus. The 'Pool' is a tsunami that leaves any plan on wet paper. With the City reduced by its losses (Ederson, Silva, Laporte …) and forced to win in a stadium that has not won in Premier since 2003, Liverpool, pure fire, went 2-0 at 9 minutes.
Fabinho, with a distant missile, left Bravo petrified in a play that started with a hand of Alexander-Arnold that neither Michael Oliver nor the VAR They considered penalty. The Brazilian invented a whip to goal and, later, the English side and Robertson wove an attack from end to end of the field that ended up entering the goal 'celestial' Salah. Two swipes just started.
The City had the ball and a 2-0 against and still had not broken to sweat. Klopp built a wall around Alisson and the 'citizens' collided with him and Van Dijk again and again. They got desperate. Angelio hit the stick, Agero with the Brazilian goalkeeper … The 'Pool' closed all the roads to the goal … and found the third. Again after going through the locker room. Another beginning of a nightmare for 'citizens'. Henderson centr and Man signed 3-0. At 51 minutes, the City was in critical situation and responded to the alarm with the ball. He doesn't know how to do it any other way.
Liverpool, exhausted by its wear and its electric football, closed. Bernardo Silva cut distances. A mirage. They were close to the second … but it didn't arrive. Sterling asked for a penalty for another Alexander-Arnold hand that took Guardiola off. Pep goes crazy in the band. Your City stays in a world of leadership. The champion of the Champions sent to the corner of thinking that of the Premier. The eternal hand in hand that they have lived since the beginning of 2018-19 gives Liverpool its biggest advantage fueling the dream of a League that has not tasted since 1990. 11 wins and a draw in 12 days feed their aspirations.
The Reds never had nine margin points in this battle. The seven of last year and the eight of this campaign are behind. The city is missing the train. Even Leicester and Chelsea are ahead. The 'Pool' no longer sees them in the rearview mirror. Only United in 1993-94 had more points of advantage (nine) than Liverpool now takes the second (eight). A hit from Premier.
