Liverpool is not invincible anymore, just six points separate the top three.
“You are either there or not there.” – Klopp
Liverpool went to Ethiad, with a Nine-game winning streak, City started the game with an impressive movement, the midfielder’s movement arrested Liverpool’s fullbacks and they literally had no time on the ball. However, Mane missed the opportunity to put the league leaders in front, only to follow by a breathtaking goal-line clearance from John stones. Later, the replay showed, it was just 1.12cm of the ball which hadn’t crossed the line.
“Post in or post out can make a massive difference and today we witnessed that. I heard the (clearance by Stones) was very close, and then we’d have scored two.
With city playing some good attacking football, Van Dyke stood tall and cleared and did everything that he could until, Aguero, showcased his finishing skills when he moved ahead of Lovren and took a touch to shoot with his left foot, only to leave Allison to look dead in his near post. The goal came five minutes before the first-half.
