Pep Guardiola, Manchester City players react to Premier League win against Liverpool

The Reds were guilty of missing a number of chances before Mane's departure as they looked to capitalise on City's shaky back line, and with better finishing, it could easily have been a different story.

Mane was given a straight red card by referee Jon Moss for his challenge and, despite Liverpool fans and some pundits claiming that the tackle didn't merit a sending off, Ederson's facial injuries prove otherwise. Was it a red card or not?

One of the games I personally remember was the last day of the season, at Maine Road in the 1995-96 season.

Liverpool's capitulation against Manchester City on Saturday rocked the Premier League, as the Reds fell to a 5-0 drubbing at the hands of Pep Guardiola's side. Now that is harsh!

It was the first time City have scored four, or more, past the team from Anfield since 1937 - and Liverpool's heaviest defeat in Manchester for 70 years.

Ederson raced out of his area to head clear a high bouncing ball when he was knocked to the ground.

After that, I got the impression that Klopp made a decision to throw the towel in on this game at half-time, as he took Salah off with one eye on Tuesday night's Champions League game against Sevilla.

Arians said the team may consider re-signing veteran running back Chris Johnson , whom the Cardinals released after the preseason. While it's too early to be making assumptions, the Cardinals will still have to prepare for life without Johnson on the field.

Man City are, of course, our toughest opponent yet - Arsenal aren't in a great place and Hoffenheim aren't really all that. Mane was sent off, Ederson stretchered off, but tests revealed no serious damage and Guardiola heralded his bravery.

The 25-year-old did play for Brazil during the recent worldwide break and while Klopp agreed Coutinho could have come on at some point at City, he said it made more sense to get the player fit and ready for the rest of the season. We have seven games in the next three weeks so there will never be time really to train.

It was his perfectly weighted through ball that found Sergio Aguero's well-timed run for the opening goal and then De Bruyne created the second with a pinpoint cross from the left which was headed home by Gabriel Jesus.

Liverpool will continue to be without the services of Adam Lallana and Nathaniel Clyne as they continue to work themselves back from long term injuries.

"It's so important for us to feel that we have one guy to help the central defenders".

That dominant voice and physical presence is still missing at the heart of the defence. So that means now we have to now prepare him for the rest of the season, which is hard with our fixtures and our schedule. I wouldn't be surprised if that happens again on Saturday. Hopefully, he can walk but maybe he won't play in the next game.

Currently, being a second in the Premier League, even at such an early stage, an away win against City could prove to be a vital result as the season ticks on.
