Manchester City thrash Liverpool 4-1 at Anfield
Liverpool ended their goalless streak at Anfield with a penalty but the losing run goes on and
The title defense is all but over after a 4-1 hammering by Man City.
A missed penalty and an error in their own box looked like costing Pep Guardiola’s side in this fixture for
the second time this season before Phil Foden, Raheem Sterling, and Ilkay Gundogan stepped up to hand
Liverpool a 4-1 defeat at a ground where they were invincible before this year.
Dropped points from United and Leicester before this game kicked off made the opportunity even more inviting
Three minutes of nightmarish goalkeeping from Alisson Becker cost Liverpool all three points as Manchester
City continue their dominance.
Both teams remained organized for the greater part of the game and it was Alisson’s consecutive errors that
ultimately gifted City the advantage that they kept till the last.
A set of awfully misplaced passes from Alisson Becker around the 75th minute gave Manchester City two chances
and they took them both with open arms.
10 minutes before that, Mohamed Salah had converted from the spot in the 63rd minute after Ilkay Gundogan
had given Manchester City the lead. Gundogan made up for a first-half
penalty miss by poking home a parried shot early in the second to give open the scoring for the Citizens.
