City take down Liverpool in game of the season

Man City 2 – Liverpool 1

Three weeks ago I put the Liverpool – City game into my Calendar because I was so excited about it. It’s rare a game like this truly lives up to expectations but Man City – Liverpool was undoubtedly the game of the Premier League Season thus far.

What was at stake?

The title race. City started the day 7 points behind Liverpool and a loss would have handed Liverpool the title in my opinion. Now just 4 points behind, City are back within striking distance.

Impact players

Leroy Sane – scored the crucial second goal coming off the left wing.

Raheem Sterling – set up the second goal and was a huge threat all game.

Sergio Aguero – not many in the world can score the type of goal he scored today.

Bernardo Silva – MOTM, must have run 1000 miles during the game, he was everywhere and spearheaded City’s pressing efforts.

Were Liverpool Unlucky ?

A little bit. For large parts of the game Liverpool were the better team and I still can’t believe they didn’t score in the first half.

Looking ahead

For neutral fans this was the best possibly outcome. We now have a true title race on our hands.  I ultimately think City still have their eyes on the Champions League a little more than the EPL. It is incredible tough to repeat and I still give Liverpool a slight edge at this point.
