After going a man down Liverpool chased shadows for the remainder of the game and couldn't keep up with City as Pep Guardiola's side scored goal after goal, with Gabriel Jesus netting twice before Leroy Sane came on to score two more towards the end. "And now we should use the situation with a wonderful player in our squad who wants to get fit and play for this club".
The stopper was substituted after receiving treatment on the pitch, but after the match Reds manager Jurgen Klopp said he felt the forward was unlucky to be dismissed.
"So I made a decision to leave him out of the squad for City".
De Bruyne's pass released Aguero to round Simon Mignolet and open the scoring in the 24th minute and his cross from the left was headed in by Jesus in first-half stoppage time. United arrived without having conceded a goal in their three games but errors by Ivorian Eric Bailly and Phil Jones allowed Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting to pounce and score on both occasions. He wasn't in for three, now four weeks with the global break, that is nothing.
"It was a hard match".
"After the global break, then one man down, young players on the pitch". Benjamin Mendy, Kyle Walker and Danilo did not come cheap but add much-needed dynamism that the long-serving Pablo Zabaleta, Gael Clichy and Aleksandar Kolarov were no longer able to provide.
He made his debut in the fitful and dramatic 2-1 win at Bournemouth before the worldwide break.
Subjected to stinging criticism following Arsenal's damaging defeats against Stoke and Liverpool, it took just six minutes for Danny Welbeck to lift Wenger's gloom as the Arsenal striker headed home from Sead Kolasinac's cross.
Arsenal put away Bournemouth 3-0 thanks largely to a brace from Danny Wellbeck and another goal from recruit Alexandre Lacazette to give Arsene Wenger's men a second win of the season.
Despite being unbeaten so far this season, Manchester City haven't looked like their dominant selves.
"It was a serious performance".
Klopp said: "We have got all the numbers (on Coutinho) from the Brazilian FA - the training, the intensity of the training, stuff like that, and it was all okay".
Harry Kane, the league's top scorer last season, is off the mark as well for the campaign.
Pummelled by the critics after their shock season-opening loss to Burnley, champions Chelsea have steadied the ship impressively and Saturday's 2-1 win at Leicester maintained their momentum.
The 23-year-old required eight stitches on a deep gash around his jaw on the left hand side of his face, while another two were needed for the cut he sustained just to the left of his eyebrow.
