The game was just as entertaining and controversial as it could be. Despite dominating the proceedings early on, Manchester City found them a goal behind when Fabinho's venomous strike sailed past Claudio Bravo in the 6th minute. The goal came just after City were controversially denied a penalty after an apparent handball by Trent Alexander-Arnold was not penalised by VAR. Liverpool soon scored another when the two Liverpool full-backs combined brilliantly to feed Mohamed Salah with an easy header at goal. Sadio Mane put the game to bed in the second half when City were once again caught out at the back by an exquisite cross by Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson. Bernardo Silva did reduce the deficit to two, but by that Liverpool were ready to sit back and soak up the pressure. The game ended at 3-1 to Liverpool.
