Even in defeat: Graceful Pep congratulates Liverpool

A blistering start to the second half saw Liverpool roar into a 4-1 lead thanks to goals from Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, but City threatened an unlikely comeback thanks to late efforts from Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan.

The 24-year-old is out of contract in the summer and is now able to sign a pre-agreement with a foreign club, with Juve maintaining their interest over the last few months.

And the club's manager was clearly delighted at the victory, which moved Liverpool into third place on 47 points. "I'm not putting him on the same level, but the way he's got that low-centre of gravity and is so strong, you can't move him".

Oxlade-Chamberlain also praised the influence of his manager on his confidence, saying Klopp's encouragement for him to get forward and threaten the City defence is part of how he has improved.

According to Wijnaldum, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is trying to take a relaxed approach in his attempts to compensate for the absence of Coutinho. There were some game difficult for them but they still scored and killed the game.

Beyond events on the pitch, transfer speculation will continue to dominate the United world and the Alexis Sanchez story is the biggest around.

A massive 15-point gap remains to Pep Guardiola's side, a combination of City's freakish consistency and Liverpool's occasional wastefulness ensuring the leaders' defeat can be recognised as the mildest of setbacks.

"You have no alternative to beat City", he added. And in a dramatic finale, Marcos Alonso appeared to have won the match for the champions, only for Hector Bellerin's 92nd-minute strike to hand the home team a share of the spoils.

DEFEAT to Bournemouth left Arsenal further adrift in the race for a top-four finish in the Premier League this season. That is football. That's how football can look if two teams combine quality and skills with attitude. Before that, we have Swansea'.

But after conceding that early goal, City dominated the rest of the first half and scored the equaliser shortly before the break when Leroy Sane shook off a defender and fired the ball home past Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius. I really loved it.

"It's good to know for us that we can do it".

As last line of defence goalkeepers will always receive harsher criticism, but Gomez is a young player with time to work on his flaws, also having shown great ability on other occasions including Sunday. Now analyse and be positive.

Though it ended when he was deemed to have fouled Otamendi, the Scottish international's efforts were thoroughly appreciated by the Liverpool supporters, who could soon be heard singing his name in the Anfield stands.
