Liverpool 3-1 Man City

Premier League, Anfield
November 10, 2019

Goals: Fabinho 6’, Salah 13’, Mane 51’; B. Silva 79′

The Reds welcomed Manchester City to Anfield in what was the biggest test of their Premier League season to date, where an opportunity to establish a nine-point lead over the visitors was on the table.

Pep Guardiola’s side, meanwhile, were desperate to bridge the gap having started the game in fourth position following victories for both Leicester and Chelsea.

And while the opening stages saw City take control of possession, it was Jurgen Klopp’s men who landed the first blow.

While the visitors preoccupied themselves with claims for a handball by Trent Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho had nestled the ball into the back of the net in an emphatic fashion to see Liverpool take the lead with six minutes on the clock.

One soon became two soon thereafter, however, as the full-backs combined with devastating effect before Andy Robertson whipped a perfectly weighted cross for Mohamed Salah to head home.

A blistering start whereby the Reds had yet to truly kick into gear, and while the visitors looked threatening with deliveries into the box it was Liverpool who grew into the occasion and consistently threatened on the counter against a shaky City backline.

With City rattled, the Reds continued to push on in the second 45 and duly found their third of the match as Jordan Henderson’s lofted delivery to the back-post saw Sadio Mane join the party.

The Reds would go on to control the majority of the second term as they continued to prey on City’s vulnerabilities, only showing a slight sense of tension when Bernardo Silva pegged one back against the run of play late in the piece.

Liverpool’s win, coupled with results elsewhere, sees Klopp’s side move eight points clear at the top and nine ahead of City with 12 games on the board.

A plethora of Reds will now take part in the final international break of the calendar year, where on their return a trip to Crystal Palace awaits on November 23.
