Liverpool’s unbeaten run in the English Premier League came to an end on Thursday after they lost 2-1 away to Manchester City at the Etihad stadium reports Completesports.com.
A snapshot goal from Sergio Aguero gave Manchester City the lead in the 40th minute but Roberto Firmino headed in from close range after great work from Andy Robertson, four minutes after the hour mark to restore parity for Liverpool.
Leroy Sane fired the winner in the 72nd minute after fine work from Raheem Sterling to help Manchester City reduce Liverpool’s seven-point lead at the top of the lead to four after 21 games.
Manchester City moved back into second place two points above Tottenham Hotspur.
Liverpool came close to scoring early on when Sadio Mane hit the post after being slid through by Mohamed Salah.
John Stones attempted to hack the ball away but kicked it straight at goalkeeper Ederson, before reacting quickest to avoid an unfortunate own goal.
Aguero provided a moment of quality for Manchester City in an explosive fashion by lashing a left-footed half-volley past Alisson Becker and into the roof of the net from the tightest angle.
The goal was Aguero’s 250th league goal for Manchester City.
The goal also saw Aguero become the first player to score in seven successive home Premier League games against a single opponent, and it sent Guardiola’s side into the interval with the lead following a first half in which little separated the two sides.
In the second half, Andrew Robertson header across the face of goal was headed in by Firmino.
The parity lasted just eight minutes as Sane sealed the win for Manchester City with a low drive after receiving a good pass from Raheem Sterling.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
