Man City hammer Liverpool

Ajustar Comentario Impresión

Manchester City have stunned 10-man Liverpool 5-0 in the fourth round of the English Premier League at the Eithad Stadium. I played with a fantastic crosser and passer of a ball in terms of accuracy - David Beckham - and De Bruyne reminds me of him a lot. Ederson is fearless, the doctor says there is nothing broken.

Liverpool's response to the red card did not exactly offer great encouragement about the competitive courage of this team.

Let's not fool ourselves, however, Manchester City outclassed us today in their own backyard.

While the red card was the key moment in the game, Liverpool's defensive frailties were again exposed as City found it far too easy to open up their back line. That's when happened then the red card and we can not change it anymore.

Referee Jon Moss brandished his red card in the 37th minute for risky play after Mane's challenge on City's Ederson.

"It's not a bad foul but with the way Ederson comes out of it, if he doesn't have that injury it's probably not a red card, it's a yellow".

Klopp shook Andy Halliday's hand first.

"An accident. A very unlucky situation". When you see a 5-0 win over Liverpool, you think it's pretty emphatic but you want to see them tested against eleven men and someone to really go at that defence. Mane sets off after a through ball, as does Ederson, and the goalie gets there just before Mane who had raised his foot to try and flick the ball beyond him and catches his opponent.

"I think it is not broken, the bone", Guardiola said. He's OK. It was courageous because Mane is coming and you can say, "I don't touch the ball"'.

The day opened with Manchester City thrashing Liverpool at the Etihad with Leroy Sane and Gabriel Jesus each scoring twice, and it ended with Manchester United drawing to end their ideal start to the season.

Klopp said Mane had been left "very, very, very upset" and "shocked" by the incident, but suggested an appeal against the Senegal forward's dismissal would be "another waste of time, like the whole game". I am sure also about the decision.

The last big game we had on Sky Sports was Tottenham against Chelsea and the away team won.

Sergio Aguero gave City the lead, as he rounded Simon Mignolet to finish well following a superb pass from Kevin De Bruyne, before Jesus and Leroy Sane both scored twice to complete the rout against Klopp's 10 men.
