Liverpool just won a great game against Manchester City that wasn’t exempt from controversies. In the end, the Reds left the pitch with the W, setting two records in the process with a 3-1 victory at Anfield Road this Sunday.
Jurgen Klopp’s side established an 8-point gap between them, the leaders of the Premier League, and City, their closest pursuers on the table.
Goals from Mane, Salah and Fabinho were enough for the home side to claim all three points against the Citizens on Merseyside. It was a terrific display from the Reds, who now look closer to that longed-for Premier League trophy.
With this victory, Liverpool have won all 13 of their last 13 league games at home, something they haven’t done since the year 1985 when they won 13 games in a row at home in the league throughout two seasons.
If that wasn’t enough, they ended some kind of streak for City. The first half of the game finished with Liverpool up 2-0. According to Caught Offside, with this win, Liverpool became the first team since Leicester back in December 2016 to have a lead of at least two goals over City in the PL at half time.
Of course, other teams scored two goals against the Citizens before, namely Norwich, Crystal Palace and Chelsea. However, Guardiola’s men have at least scored in the first half, meaning that they went into the break in all those games losing by just one goal.
Things are going just fine for Liverpool, who have a really good chance to become Premier League champions this season for the first time ever. We’re entering the last two months of the year and many people believe that’s going to be a hard task for the Reds. If they go through that without any harm, it’s over for the rest of the league.
