Premier League, Anfield
November 10, 2019

It was a feeling which continued long into the second term as Sadio Mane was next to join the party as the Reds refused to take their foot off City’s throat.

Bernardo Silva would peg one back, but it was too little, too late as Liverpool safely secured all three points to move nine ahead of City and eight clear at the top following results elsewhere in the league.
