Liverpool tops the Premier League table, having won 11 of their first 12 Premier League games this season with eight points lead. On the other hand, Manchester City dropped points after this lost that left them on the fourth place behind the in-form Leicester City and Chelsea in the second and third place.
Despite of dominating the large parts of the game, they have failed to enter the pitch while letting the opponent’s goals allowed in their own. Raheem Sterling played a good game, but also failed to net in this match, same with De Bruyne who also worked a lot in this game but failed to create a shot. Silva’s goal is their only consolation in this hard-fought match against their rivals.
On the other hand, Jurgen Klopp’s men were very clinical in this match, managing to create 5 shots on goals and successful in 3. The controversial first goal was not that impressive, but the second goal where Andrew Robertson found the Egyptian Mohamed Salah in space is an outstanding framework. Wijnaldum intelligent defensive tactics gave De Bruyne a hard time entering the pitch and making it difficult for his team to find him in open space.
“What happened today is we showed why we are the champions. In this stadium we played incredible. I am proud of my team more than ever against the strongest team in Europe. I am so proud. We played so good,” Guardiola said after the match.
“It’s only November. We all know that but don’t have to say it as it’s clear. We will try and see what happens in the end. The pressure or whatever is not there yet. It will come, but at the moment it’s just opportunity and go for it and do the work, throw all in what you have and let’s see what happens,” Klopp said when asked if their 8 points lead is putting pressure to the team behind them.
