Faced with a Manchester City that deprived him of the national title last year, Liverpool has delivered a perfect first hour of play. Which was enough to allow him to win 3-1 and, above all, to consolidate his leading position in the Premier League. City, now 4th, points to nine units.
Manchester City was often dangerous, but Alisson was a solid bulwark, although it should also be noted that Aguero and Sterling were clumsy.
Liverpool broke the nail as soon as it was recovered. A Henderson center allowed Mane to sign the 3-0 lead at 51st. The Citizens saved the honor in the 78th with the success of Bernardo Silva.
Although the season is still long, Liverpool sent a strong signal with this success. The Reds, who have dropped just two points since the start of the year, are eight points ahead of a pair of Leicester and Chelsea. Manchester City fell to 4th place, nine points behind the leader. Guardiola and his men have no more jokers.
