Manchester City vs Liverpool (4-0): Liverpool has never been so happy with a loss, even hungover in their stint at Etihad after winning the Premier a week ago. The Manchester City received the champion as custom dictates, with a hallway that dignifies Guardiola’s team. He is honored by the detail after giving up the crown to a rival; who put too much effort throughout the year to afford the license to walk around Manchester. City, however, rolled up their sleeves to serve the rematch (4-0).
Henderson captained the solemn departure to the court although no one conceded his hand. Following the protocol, the friendly tone is over. A run-down start was preceded by an authoritative exercise in a City attack. He knew how to camouflage his lagoons behind because he was unappealable when he looked at the Alisson arch.
Manchester City vs Liverpool: Match Overview
Sterling made Joe Gomez dizzy, hit the Englishman and De Bruyne scored from a penalty. The 1-0 uncorked a clash in which Salah finished off the wood. Fate favored City. He failed to define Liverpool and Guardiola gave Klopp a taste of his own medicine. Gabriel Jesus made sense of a counterattack in which Foden summoned Sterling for the Englishman to make it 2-0. A world for the champion, with everything made in England and with little desire to work against the response of a City that causes allergies to lose. Even less after listening to pyrotechnics at the beginning, a shot that was granted by some Liverpool fans outside the Etihad.
De Bruyne contested. The Belgian is going to have too short a season finale, rampant after confinement. He feels superior to the rest and leaves his mark on each encounter, sharp as there is no other. He sees millimeter spaces and seems to be playing in a tuxedo, Phil Foden’s luxury partner in a triangulation that ended any hint of reaction. City swallowed Liverpool as a subliminal message that this is a point and apart. There is still a story to tell.
The triumph over Manchester City came to him little by little and among so many rotations he adorned himself with Oxlade-Chamberlain’s own goal, a reward for a night in which everything came out face to face. He protected himself against the attempts of Anfield’s painting and reacted with the efficiency that he lacked for months. This came too late in a club that now puts the focus on the Champions. The defeat for Liverpool, on the other hand, does not go beyond the terrain of the anecdote.
