Premier League: Man City Humiliate Newly Crowned EPL Champions Liverpool

Manchester City hammered newly crowned Premier League champions Liverpool 4-0 at the Etihad in Thursday’s Premier League game.

Liverpool, who were given a guard of honour by the hosts before kick-off, almost took the lead but Mohamed Salah’s low drive cannoned off the post.

It proved costly as Man City took complete control with a devastating first-half display in which they scored three goals within 20 minutes.

Kevin de Bruyne converted the opener from the penalty spot on 25 minutes after Joe Gomez fouled Raheem Sterling.

In the 35th minute Sterling made it 2-0 to Man City after finishing off a swift counter-attack.

Young midfielder Phil Foden coolly slotting home on 45 minutes to make ot 3-0 following a quick one-two with De Bruyne.

And in the 66th minute Man City scored their fourth when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain inadvertently slid the ball into his own net from Sterling’s low drive.

Riyad Mahrez thought he had added the fifth goal in the 95th minute but after consulting the VAR, referee Anthony Taylor disallowed the goal for handball by Phil Foden in the build-up.

    Take out Alisson, Sadio Mané, Virgil van Dijk & Andrew Robertson from the team….AND LIVERPOOL FC WILL BE A MID-TABLE SIDE!!!….They might still conceded defeat to one more game before the season end!…My thoughts!

    Liverpool players are still celebrating…..most of them had a pint too many before the game, lol. Seriously though, the Liverpool I saw yesterday played like there was nothing at stake, and in reality, what was there to play for, except pride? Liverpool have won every major competition this year, except the FA cup. The are the English, European and world champs. I’m sure their fans will happily forgive them for this minor bump on the road. If other clubs think Liverpool is on a downward slide, they risk receiving a rude awakening when next they play the Reds. Liverpool are going to remain a very hard team to beat, going into next season.
