Pep Guardiola’s Sky Blues humble the hosts at Anfield


Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City go 10 points clear of Liverpool in the league table with Ilkay Gundogan missing first-half penalty but scoring twice. Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden were also on target last night.

Liverpool FC’s Brazillian goalkeeper, Alisson was punished for a chaotic second-half spell as Manchester City stretched their lead at the top of the Premier League table after a 4-1 win over Liverpool in a crucial-tie with significant ramifications at Anfield.

Mo Salah’s 63rd-minute penalty for which he later got trolled by the netizens as he had dived to earn a penalty had wrestled back momentum for the faltering champions but it didn’t last long after Ilkay Gundogan who missed a first-half spot-kick had made the breakthrough at Anfield shortly after the interval in the 50th-minute.

But two unforced errors in the space of four minutes from Brazillian goalkeeper Alisson allowed Gundogan and Raheem Sterling to dramatically haul the contest in the 73rd and 76th minute respectively.

Phil Foden then capped an imperious display with a late fourth in the 83rd-minute as Pep Guardiola’s ominously-efficient side humbled their hosts.

Manchester City, on a 14-game winning streak, are now 10 points ahead of Liverpool and five clear of Manchester United, with a game in hand on both sides, while Liverpool, Anfield aura further diminished, have lost three league games in a row at home for the first time since 1963.
