Liverpool 4-3 Man City

Premier League, Anfield
January 14, 2018

Goals: Oxlade-Chamberlain 9′, Firmino 59′, Mane 61′, Salah 67′; Sane 41′, B Silva 84′, Gundogan 90+1′


Who else can barely breathe?

Liverpool ended City’s unbeaten league run this season, with Jurgen Klopp‘s side producing arguably their best ever performance under the German.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain fired the hosts in front, only for Leroy Sane to equalise just before half-time, with Loris Karius not covering himself in glory.

Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah all scored in a stunning second-half burst, but late goals from Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan made for an unbearable nervy finish.

It was a heroic effort from Liverpool—here’s how supporters reacted to the game on social media…
