Every football loving person knows it was going to be a revenge match after the Blues cut-short the Manchester City vague yet another premier league hope last week, when the Champions visited the Ethihad Stadium but probably not a 4-nil thrash. It was actually a show of “who has more experience” between Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp when the Reds visited Manchester, and the former Barcelona manager proved to be the superior coach as his side dampened the visitors four-nil to get relieved of the humiliation shown to them by the Frank Lampard’s side.
Kevin Debruyne converted an opener after Joe Gomez was judged to have hauled-down Raheem Sterling inside the eighteen yard box to set his side firing-on. The Reds who got a guard of honour by the hosts before kick-off, could have taken the lead but Mohamed Salah’s low drive cannoned off the post. Few minutes after, it was Sterling’s turn to mark the scoreboard as he drove-in and stroke and just before half-time, Phil Foden made it 3-0 for the host. The second half saw Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain inadvertently slid the ball into his own net from Sterling since his side has refused to console any of the 4 strikes.
