“Sadio and Mo are on another level,” “Curtis Jones is our wildcard” – Fans react to Man City 1-2 Liverpool

Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane inspired Liverpool to a 2-1 win over Man City on Thursday morning, following a stunning second-half showing from the pair.

Man City 1-2 Liverpool

MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford
Pre-Season Friendly (6)

Goals: Sane (57′), Salah (62′), Mane pen (90′).

The Reds tasted victory in their second game in the International Champions Cup, following the 3-1 defeat to Borussia Dortmund on Sunday.

A dire first half at the MetLife Stadium saw the two teams head in goalless at the interval, before Leroy Sane broke the deadlock in the second half.

Salah equalised barely a minute after being introduced, however, and Mane’s last-gasp penalty prevented the game from going to a shootout, after Dominic Solanke was clattered inside the box.

It was a richly deserved win for Jurgen Klopp‘s side, who were superb at times in the second half, both in terms of pressing and passing.

Here’s how Reds supporters reacted to the result on social media and our forums.


Unsurprisingly, the devastating pairing of Salah and Mane were praised endlessly…

“Mane and Mo …. so awesome.”

Curtis Jones again impressed and was the only bright spark in the first half…



A general assessment of the performance saw fans happy overall

“Really impressed with the usual 2, apart from them Dom provided a good foil, Camacho IMO is in front of Clyne and Woodburn, Chirivella and Grujic dominated the midfield – great last 20 mins.”
