Incredible! Liverpool 4 – 3 Manchester City @ Anfied





Liverpool 1-0 Man City
Both sides will struggle to keep this level of intensity up. There’s no rest to be had anywhere,
Liverpool 1-0 Man City
Sadio Mane works a neat one-two on the edge of the Manchester City area but Gini Wijnaldum’s reverse pass is no good.
Fabian Delph is down, hurt, off the ball. I didn’t see what happened but he needs treatment. Here it is – Delph slid in and his leg got stuck in the turf, straightening out his knee.

They share the same dentist, I believe.
City pressing now, Leroy Sane finds a pocket of space on the edge of the box and lashes in a shot, deflected away by Dejan Lovren’s hip.
Liverpool 1-0 Man City
Still a very good game to watch. Manchester City having a strong spell of possession but they haven’t had a shot yet.CLOSE!

Raheem Sterling is still being booed by his former fans, but he looks very sharp. He nearly gets in behind Dejan Lovren again but the Croatian makes a good sliding challenge.
Oooh! De Bruyne then flashes a telling ball across goal and the sliding Sergio Aguero is very close to turning it home.
LIVERPOOL 1-0 MAN CITY
17: Many sides have scored the opener against City, Carra points out, but none have gone and grabbed the second. It’s on Liverpool now to make that happen…

15: The Anfield faithful are roaring their side on, and the team is responding. Mane leads Liverpool on a 3v3, but a lofted ball cannot quite pick out Firmino.
LIVERPOOL 1-0 MAN CITY
13: OFFSIDE! City come forward with De Bruyne, but he makes the wrong choice when cutting it across for Sterling, who is flagged for offside. Still, an alarming amount of space for the Belgian when bearing down on the Liverpool area.
LIVERPOOL 1-0 MAN CITY
11: Perfect start for Liverpool, and City’s poor form at Anfield has carried into the opening 11 minutes or so here.
 GOAL! LIVERPOOL 1-0 MAN CITY (Oxlade-Chamberlain, 9) 
A huge moment for Liverpool, and for Oxlade-Chamberlain!
“It’s a striker’s finish,” says Neville, as the Ox drives forward before unleashing a low effort from 20 yards out into the far corner.
Time to see what City are made of.
LIVERPOOL 0-0 MAN CITY
7: NO PENALTY! Oxlade-Chamberlain loses possession and it sends City on their way. Sterling and De Bruyne link up and it’s the former Liverpool man who goes down in the area under pressure from Lovren.
“Not enough in it for me,” says Neville on the gantry.
 LIVERPOOL 0-0 MAN CITY
5: Plenty of jeers for Sterling as he takes his first couple touches of the game. And then there are cheers as Robertson robs Aguero of possession, though City, as ever, press high and earn a throw-in in an advanced position.
LIVERPOOL 0-0 MAN CITY
4: BLOCKED! Mane meets Firmino’s looped ball over the top but his first touch lets him down. Salah then picks up the loose ball but sees his attempt from the edge of the area blocked.
LIVERPOOL 0-0 MAN CITY
2: Both teams yet to settle into this one. Losing possession all too easily so far as they both sides just try and compose themselves.
 LIVERPOOL 0-0 MAN CITY
KICK-OFF! The expectation surrounding this fixture reached fever-pitch, and now we are finally under way on the Anfield pitch.
Can Liverpool avenge the 5-0 defeat at the Etihad and end City’s unbeaten Premier League run in the process? Let’s find out, shall we…

MINUTE’S APPLAUSE
Ahead of kick-off, there’s a minute’s applause for Tommy Lawrence, the former Liverpool goalkeeper who sadly passed away this week.
Lawrence featured under Bill Shankly in the 1960s, playing more than 400 times for the Reds.
