Liverpool Trashed by Man City as Mane Saw Red
Arriving to Etihad stadium in a excellent mood, things turned rather sour for Liverpool as they went back following a 5-0 trashing from home team, Manchester City.
It was a potential interesting contest which turned ugly once The Reds found themselves playing with 10 men as Sadio Mane saw red after his rash foul on City goalie, Ederson.
That tie started off in an exciting manner, with the home team dominating more of the possession while their opponent were trying to use their usual fast counter attacking play.
Pep Guardiola’s men got themselves ahead through Sergio Aguero’s composed finish on 24 minutes and things suddenly became harder for Jurgen Klopp’s side when Mane received his marching order not long after.
Playing with a man up certainly bring tons of advantage for City as they eventually doubling their lead just before half time break, this time from Gabriel Jesus’ header.
After the break, nothing changed much as Guardiola’s men continue to push forward looking for more goals, which they successfully earn through Jesus’ second along with Leroy Sane’s brace.
A convincing win indeed for Man City as they gear themselves up ahead of midweek Champions League battle, while for Liverpool, it’s certainly a massive set back straight from their previous 4-0 win against Arsenal.
