Even with the likes of Kevin De Bruyne , Fernandinho, and Ilkay Gundogan, Man City could not break Liverpool front and middle down, which caused Man City to make unnecessary mistakes and their dream of breaking Arsenal’s record.

Young Scotsman Andrew Robertson was superb, nobody could break him down, and he kept sterling under control all through the game.

The Man City goalkeeper Ederson was a disappointment, he was at fault for the first goal by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain 9′ he was disgraced by Roberto Firmino 59′ for the second and the fourth by Mohamed Salah 68′, was all his mistake when he came off the line and clear straight to Salah’s deft feet, who is in top class form of his life.

Klopp men played well without Philippe Coutinho, the front six and midfield did what they needed to do making the void created by Coutinho departure to Barcelona unnoticeable in the game.
