First game and biggest test of Liverpool after the sale of their magical playmaker, Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona, the Reds overpowered league leaders, Manchester City, in a seven-goal movie like encounter at Anfield.
That win preserves Liverpool’s 15 years record without losing to the Cityzens at Anfield.
Liverpool pulled the first blood with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s solo effort that beats Ederson by just an inch, Sane powers in a near post shot that beats Karius quiet easily to restore parity, but it was Liverpool all the way as Liverpool’s Fab Three: Firmino, Mane and that man Salah make it 4-1 in just nine minutes, but the worse was anticipated as Liverpool’s shaky defence almost gave them away following Bernard and David Silva finish from the six yards look to pull a historic comeback in added time.
That win puts Liverpool n third place with 47 points, same with Manchester United with a game in hand and Chelsea, who drew Leicester City on saturday.
