Which Liverpool players impressed during their 4-3 win over Manchester City?

"The pressing in and around the box in the second half was from a different planet. outstanding", added Klopp. "It's not that I think I now have to go on and think I am the best man and number one".

Sensational goals from Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah in nine devastating second-half minutes saw Liverpool become the first British side to beat Pep Guardiola's men since Arsenal in the FA Cup last April, ending their 33-game unbeaten domestic run in the process.

City recovered admirably to lose 4-3, but its five-month, 22-match unbeaten start to the league is over.

"I always said no. It is still to be done". Wenger later said Sanchez's future would be sorted "in the next 48 hours" as City and United vie for his services. "Of course, for us, it's important to show we can play without him and we did it, so that's a very important statement, absolutely".

In response, the in-house team apologised on behalf of Klopp for the swear word but the Liverpool manager countered by saying he thought it was "okay" to use such language in America.

It remains to be seen whether Mignolet returns for the trip to Swansea City or Karius remains in possession of the number one spot despite his error. Former Arsenal midfielder Chamberlain was promoted in a wider attacking role and he didn't disappoint scoring the opener ten minutes into the game to put Liverpool in front.

Substitute Bernardo Silva gave City hope of a late fightback by making it 4-2 on 83 minutes before Ilkay Gundogan scored another in stoppage time.

Liverpool are now sitting on a huge transfer kitty following the sale of Coutinho to Barcelona, so reinvesting that in a keeper like Kasper Schmeichel, Jack Butland or Jan Oblak would surely be sensible decision.

Salah passed unselfishly on that occasion and could scarcely believe his luck when an utterly scrambled City were harried into a series of defensive mistakes, culminating in Liverpool's top scorer lifting a marvellous finish into an unguarded net from 40 yards as Ederson languished in no-man's land.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was delighted with his team's display and said it was a wonderful advert for the Premier League. It was a good game. "We knew we had what it took if we were 100% at the races to get three points today".

The Blues resume their Champions League campaign with a last-16 tie against Swiss side FC Basel in February. He has played all his life as a winger but against City he played as a No8 and you could see he is an amazing player.

For Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp the victory was a cathartic moment after City thrashed his team 5-0 earlier this season.

He was never going to do that.

Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum admits they will not be title contenders until they learn how to kill off matches.
