Manchester City suffers first season of the defeat

Manchester City suffered their first Premier League defeat of the season and it was at Anfield where Liverpool beat the table-toppers 4-3 in a thrilling encounter.

The Reds showed great intent as they took the lead after just nine minutes through Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, but City went into the break all square courtesy of Leroy Sane’s equaliser.

In the second half, three goals in just eight minutes from Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah put Jurgen Klopp’s side in the driver’s seat.

However, City mounted a late fightback as they reduced the deficit through Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan.

Liverpool held on to the slim win to take all the three point on offer and also avenge the 5-0 humiliation they suffered in the reverse fixture.
