It was a dream reaction to defeat to Crystal Palace last time out, as Jurgen Klopp‘s Liverpool thumped City 4-1 at the Etihad Stadium.

Goals from Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Martin Skrtel, as well as an Eliaquim Mangala own goal, gave the Reds the victory, with Sergio Aguero’s wonderstrike proving a mere consolation. Martin Skrtel added the icing on the cake late on with a powerful volley.

Here is how social media reacted throughout proceedings.


It was a first game against his old side for Raheem Sterling, and the 20-year-old was received decidedly poorly by the travelling Kop, with boos ringing around the Etihad with his every touch – and Twitter following suit.

Mangala’s early own goal, clipping the ball beyond Joe Hart following Firmino’s cut-back, gave supporters an early boost.

That goal, and much of Liverpool’s attacking play, came as a result of some exemplary pressing play from the Reds’ attacking line, with Firmino, Coutinho and Adam Lallana pushing City’s defence back at every opportunity.

Some trademark endeavour from Klopp’s Brazilian duo saw Coutinho slide the ball wide of Hart on 23 minutes.

And Coutinho turned provider nine minutes later, allowing Firmino the most simple of finishes on the edge of the six-yard box.

Some suspect defending from Skrtel gave City hope just before half-time, with the defender’s poor clearance leading to an astonishing long-range finish from the Argentine.

With City making two substitutions at the break, Manuel Pellegrini’s men looked to apply the pressure early on in the second half, aided by a shocking backpass from Liverpool’s captain, James Milner.

But as the Reds imposed themselves once again, Klopp was able to withdraw his two stars, with Coutinho and Firmino both departing to adulation from the Liverpool support.

It just got better as Skrtel converted with a volleyed finish on 81 minutes, sealing victory for Klopp’s side.

And a buoyant fanbase dreamed of glory…
