Manchester City remained unfortunate as VAR checked the incident and goal stood this time with a huge rumble from the Anfield fans. In the 13th minute of the game Mohammad Salah finds the net through a header on Andrew Robertson’s brilliant cross. The pack at Anfield started to felt differently for their heroes now.

Why Sadio Mane remains goal less when the spree of goals is already on. In the 51st minute Mane scored a magnificent header at the back post to score a thriller. This had brought the tally to 3-0.

Manchester City’s only sluggish goal found the net in the 78th minute by the Bernardo Silva’s low shot in the bottom corner but it was already too late for the Guardiola’s side to come back against the powered Liverpool.
