Liverpool stuns the Invincible City
Klopp’s Liverpool pulled a rabbit out of the hat when they beat the former unbeatable Manchester City. Many teams in the EPL have fallen victim to the hands of Pep and his City team until yesterday when they faced Coutinholess Liverpool.
The much anticipated game had football pundits chocked out and simply stunned at the brilliance of Liverpool on Sunday. Everyone expected a great game but not many predicted the results. The runaway log leaders have played football in its ultimate form; some calling it football from another planet. But Klopp and Liverpool had a plan. The corresponding fixture was ruined by a red card to Mane’ which saw City spanking Liverpool 5-0, the Senegal maestro was not to miss-out this time around. And rightfully so, he repaid Liverpool supporters by scoring a brilliant goal on Sunday.
Liverpool’s front three were unstoppable, they exploited the much talked about weak City defense and benefited. Having sold their star man Coutinho to Barcelona and the most expensive defender in van Dijk on the injured list Liverpool’s chances to win appeared slim. Victory against City means a draw for many EPL teams however Liverpool came to this with a vengeance and boy did they dish out the best football ever.
City and Liverpool another classic
It takes two amazing teams to produce a classic, this was the case on Sunday. City were at no stage outplayed in this game but Klopp’s side were brilliant; they played with freedom, hunger and skill. No one can deny that City are like bees you touch them (scoring first) they sting you hard. And so Liverpool did what everyone has done-scoring first but Liverpool had an antidote to the sting. They hustled City midfield which where their strength lies going forward. They were aggressive in winning the ball and attacked City relentlessly.
But the imminent champions displayed their never die attitude by equalizing before half-time; at this stage the neutrals would have yawned and said “we know what’s next”.
Liverpool came out of the change room guns blazing, they had vibrancy and attitude about them that showed no fear for City. And that paid dividends eventually. The “still downloading” champs fought hard to stage a come back scoring 2 goals in the dying minutes of the game; however Liverpool held to their 4-3 victory to end City’s unbeaten run of 23 games.
