PREMIER LEAGUE: LIVERPOOL BREAKS MANCHESTER CITY UNBEATEN RCEORD
For City, it was very disappointing this afternoon. They defended badly and seeing how they struggled and strived to deal with Liverpool’s offensives, that was quite far from the expected. Liverpool were excellent making the Reds look very ordinary with a 4-1 lead in the middle of the game which ran the unbeaten record of the City to an end. However, it’s not too bad for Manchester City with 15 points lead on the Premier League Chart.
Oxlade- Chamberlain picks up possession in an unthreatening position in the middle of city’s half, he then push forward towards the retreating City, he posed an excellent turn of pace to sprint past Fernandihno before right footing the ball to the right corner of the post, and that was an opening early goal recorded, 9minutes after kick-off.
Kyle Walker crosses the ball from right to left landing on Leroy chest .Gomez tried getting close snatching the ball but Sane charged past him and off into the box where he lifted a fierce shot into the post, Karius got his hands on it but it was a powerful shot that he could not keep the ball out of the net. Manchester stroke balance with score record 1-1.
The second half of the game resumed with a draw the same way. Manchester City gained a little more control now. Oxlade-Chamberlain right footed a pass to Firmino, that was not a great pass at all and Stones should cut in. Firmino struggled to lean the defender off the ball and finds himself one-on-one with the keeper. Ederson’s a little lonely here, Firmino scooped a nice shot over him, the ball bounced into the left corner of the net. Score record is no longer a draw, Liverpool 2-1 Manchester City.
Mane stroked another shot and it ended a goal 2minutes after the previous goal. The Liverpool really can’t wait to get the lead of the match as Mane left-footed the ball high past Ederson and into the top-right corner from 18 yards. Not too long after, the Egyptian professional player came into picture to lifting the score record at 67 minutes of the game. Salah brilliantly lashed a shot over the goalkeeper into the busy net, this is somewhat too much for the pathetic Ederson.
It is not over yet for the City, Gundogan squeezed through a shot which deflected back to Bernado Silva. No dulling moment for him, he smashed past the helpless Karius with his left foot. Anfield must be lucky to be under a thrilling match, now it is 4-2.
Manchester City took another chance into net of the Liverpool as Aguero finds himself lucky having snatched away the ball from the confused Sane, he tipped the ball into the middle and somehow Gundogan was able to take the ball on his chest and surged it low past Karius in the defensive extra time reducing the lead differnce to 4-3, and that was the end.
Now it’s all over as Liverpool took the lead against Manchester City.
