Mohamed Salah turns out to be a great hero of Liverpool with only goal in intense top match against Man City

Liverpool have won the top match against Man City. The Reds had to wait until the final quarter to take the lead via Mo Salah. Liverpool, where coach Klopp was red a few minutes before the end, is revived after a few difficult weeks in his own country. Man City see Arsenal further out due to this defeat.

Liverpool and Manchester City did not give each other an inch, so that there were not too many opportunities in the first half. Only after fifteen minutes could City threaten through Gundogan, who could not embarrass Alisson. A few minutes later it was up to Ederson to easily take a ball from Jota. City took the match more and more in their hands afterwards, but both Gundogan and twice Haaland were unable to score. At the end of the first period, City still seemed to take the lead. De Bruyne found Haaland in front of goal, but the Norwegian also got the short straw.

Early in the second period, Liverpool were particularly close to the opening goal. Firmino gave in with salah, who could only go after Ederson. The Brazilian goalie saved with the fingertips. Barely three minutes later, City could finally cheer, but referee Taylor disapproved of the whole thing. Haaland made a little too flashy a draw error at Fabinho, as a result of which Foden’s goal did not go through.

In the final quarter, the British fans still got to see a valid goal. As in the first half, Salah was alone in front of Ederson and this time the Egyptian did not fail. Anfield in ecstasy. Via substitute Nunez, The Reds were almost allowed to celebrate again a few minutes later, but the Uruguayan shot just wide.

Red for Klopp

City did not give in yet and signed via Erling Haaland egg for the (deserved) equalizer. Virgil van Dijk only intervened. That the tension was there, coach Klopp proved. The German couldn’t contain himself and shouted out to the linesman. Taylor had no mercy and sent him to the stands.

From the stands, Klopp saw his top signing Nunez squander a huge chance by taking his own chance. And that while two fellow mates were free. Liverpool were also close to 2-0 in extra time via Alexander-Arnold and again Nunez, but that did not come in the end. Man City lose for the first time this season and have to leave a gap of four points on leader Arsenal.
