Premier League 2019 Liverpool vs Manchester City Highlights – The most mouth-watering fixture of the Premier League took place yesterday between Liverpool and Manchester City. It was the fight between the current Premier League champions against the current UCL Champions. The game was also pitched as a battle between Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola. Anfield was a houseful affair and the crowd was very electric throughout. Anfield got its first big roar very early in the game as Fabinho’s long shot beat Claudio Bravo from 30 yards but the opening goal was surrounded with controversy as Manchester City was demanding a penalty moment when the ball hit Trent Alexander-Arnold’s arm in the penalty area.
Liverpool was charged up and had the game plan to attack City early in the game. Mohamed Salah headed home Andrew Robertson’s brilliant cross in the 13th minute to extend the home advantage and they had a third goal just six minutes after half-time, with Claudio Bravo failing to keep out Sadio Mane’s header at the back post.

Liverpool’s fullback was massive in this game as they were very good in both the aspects of the game, defence and offence.

But, it was too late for City, who now find themselves nine points behind Jurgen Klopp’s side in the fourth place. Liverpool has won 11 of their first 12 Premier League games this season. Only Manchester United in 1993/94 has had a bigger lead after 12 games of a Premier League season (nine points).

But, it is safe to say the job is still barely done as the Premier League is still left with 26 fixtures this season. One of the reasons for this result was because Manchester City was without Aymeric Laporte and goalkeeper Ederseveon who are the preferred starters for the team.
