Liverpool takes off in the Premier League. The Reds beat Manchester City 3-1 at Anfield Road in the huge shock of the 12th day.
The Reds have managed the k.-o. against the holders of the title from the first quarter of an hour. They opened the scoring on a terrible missile Fabinho (6th), before doubling their advantage on a head of Salah, well served by Robertson (13th).
Manchester City was still dangerous, but Alisson was a solid bulwark. Aguero and Sterling have also been clumsy at the conclusion in several circumstances.
Liverpool broke the nail as soon as it was recovered. An overflow followed by a Henderson center allowed Mane to sign the 3-0 lead in the 51st. The Citizens got a little hope in the 78th with the success of Bernardo Silva, but Jurgen Klopp's proteges held their bones.
Although the season is still long, since 26 matches remain to play, Liverpool sent a strong signal with this net success against his rival. The Reds, who have dropped just two points since the start of the season, are eight points ahead of a pair of Leicester and Chelsea. Manchester City fell to 4th place, nine points behind the leader. Pep Guardiola and his men do not have a lot of jokers to play anymore.
