A stuttering 2-1 VAR assisted Liverpool win, Mane to score anytime..

I would take that! 8)

Got score wrong, everything else spot on

On the contrary, I thought Liverpool played well.

City did too, apart from defensively and finishing.

City had more shots more corners and more possession..

 I was listening to game on way back from Newry never seen game but by the commentary they felt City were the better team.. Goal keeper was at fault for one goal or should have saved one, either way Liverpool are by far the best team in the EPL
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Defending is a big part of the game, City were terrible at it. City were always gonna have their share of the ball, especially after going 2-0 down so early.

Both teams played well, albeit Liverpool defenses and finished far better. City only gave themselves to blame though as they had easy chances to score at least two more goals but weren’t good enough on the day ( Sterling’s header and the Aguero one where he mistimed and missed his kick)

There must be a huge sense of relief in Liverpool tonight. Last weekends steal against Villa and today's bit of luck shows just how a six point lead could have seen both Liverpool and Man City level on points.

Tough assignment up next for Man City playing an inform Chelsea after the international break.

Great to see Sean Cox there. Dont know what his prognosis is but hopefully he can continue his recovery. Awful time for him and his family.

On the game great result. Two very good teams playing some wonderful football at times. If Liverpool had played like that in any of the other games this season there would not have been the nervous last ten minutes clinging on to a one goal lead.

I think Liverpool were lucky with the first pen, for me it should have been given. I can see why the VAR ref did not want to overrule given the "ricochet" provider but I think TAA had time to react, unlike Silva. Second one was a nonsense, never a pen. I'm not sure on the VAR rules but would the VAR ref have been able to make a call on the Silva handball in the first incident? If the ball had dropped to Aguero and he scored it would have been chalked off because of the Silva handball. I think the rule is that if it touches a attacking player arm in the lead up to a goal it is an automatic foul regardless of intent. In the match it did not lead up to a goal so i am not sure it could have been called? It clearly was not a handball in the normal (no goal awarded) interpretation?

On the game itself Fabinho was outstanding. If he starts scoring goals then he will rival Kante as the best defensive midfielder in the league. The whole team played well and I think you saw what Henderson give the team when he went off. TAA was a lot more exposed after that. Defense played well but City did miss a lot of chances. Not sure what was up with Aguero, the header and the miss in the second half were really strange, he seemed to just completely loose his bearings.

Great to see Sean Cox and his family at the game. Very touching to see Klopp holding his hand there.

Thats the title for Liverpool barring injuries and can see the gap getting bigger between Liverpool in City over the next few month, can't recall any of their front 3 ever been out for anything other then a week or two. The pen was a 50:50 decision, if had been given VAR would have gone along with the refs decision, thought Kompany made a tit of himself yesterday.

City are poor at the back without Laporte and he doesn't have a left back he trusts, Aguero is just not the same player, he'll probably score 30 goals this season but any good centre forward would in that team with the way they create chances.
