Liverpool maintained their undefeated start to the Premier League season and made a decisive move in the title race with 3-1 win over title rivals Manchester City. Two goals in the opening thirteen minutes set the tone for the Reds, who were under pressure for vast swathes of the second half. However, Jurgen Klopp managed to outwit Pep Guardiola for an eighth time, opening up an eight-point gap on second-placed Leicester City.
Fabinho’s screamer set the tone for the league leaders, in what was the Reds first foray into the Manchester City half. Gundogen tamely cleared the danger, pushing the ball into the path of the Brazilian midfielder, who promptly blasted the ball past Bravo to send Anfield into raptures.
It wasn’t long before Klopp’s side were celebrating a second goal. Andy Robertson, whipped in a cross into the box which Fernandinho failed to clear. Mohamed Salah was the beneficiary, planting a header past Bravo with the game just thirteen minutes old.
City grew into the contest and eventually started to push back the hosts. A run and shot from right-back Angelino eventually deflected off Virgil van Dijk and onto the woodwork. Still, Liverpool was a threat on the counter and came close to adding a third before the break as Salah’s effort from the edge of the box was palmed away by Bravo.
Liverpool put the contest beyond the reach of City six minutes after the restart. Jordan Henderson drifted a cross to the back post and Sadio Mane headed home from a tight ankle, thanks in part to Claudio Bravo pushing the ball into the net.
City scrambled for a foothold in the contest but failed to breakdown the Liverpool backline. Raheem Sterling came close to scoring against his former side only to be denied by the feet of Allison.
After relentless pressure, Man City pulled a goal back. A drilled cross from Angelino was controlled by Bernardo Silva who smashed the ball past Allison.
Pep Guardiola’s side continued to push and pressure the league leaders with Angelino providing the main attacking outlet for the Premier League champions, again a teasing cross from the Spaniard drew another chance for City, however, Kyle Walker’s header ballooned well over.
Liverpool showed a defensive calmness that has been lacking in recent weeks and held on to open up a nine-point gap on their rivals.
