Emre Can talking with Liverpool over new contract; no Juventus deal

Emre Can talking with Liverpool over new contract; no Juventus deal

It is not the first time that Klopp has masterminded a win over Pep Guardiola, and on the evidence of Sunday's showing at fevered Anfield, it will not be the last. Yes, City defended badly but it was Liverpool's relentless pressing that forced the mistakes that lead to the goals. "I always said, "No it's not already done", because there are still a lot of hard games to play." .

"That three in midfield and the three up front were brilliant in the first half". He collected a fine cross from Firmino to slot in a low shot past City keeper Ederson.

Oxlade-Chamberlain set the hosts on their way early on, with Leroy Sane equalising before the break.

And the Liverpool boss also blasted critics taking aim at his leaky defence, adding: "Blow up my boots!"

Firmino who was heavily involved in Liverpool's build up play finally got is reward in the 59th minute when he chipped in a ideal shot over Ederson to put his side ahead once again and start an explosive goalscoring shower which will drown City in the coming ten minutes. Andrew Robertson, who played at left back for the Reds, singularly harried Nicolas Otamendi, Ederson, and John Stones until the ball went out for a throw-in.

Liverpool scored four goals from seven shots on target.

Jurgen Klopp's men may have provided a blueprint on how to beat City, and having the tremendous help from a noisy home crowd is clearly a big part of it.

"We gave a lot of points away that we could have collected".

This minor blip will have done nothing to dent the notion that City are still winning this Premier League and in a way we have maybe never seen in this country.

"I think that the start Salah's made, I can't actually think of a Liverpool signing who's ever in the history of the club made a better start as a signing", he told Sky Sports.

"The game was in our hands at 1-1 but our finishing was not good and then it went suddenly to 4-1".

"You have to live this kind of situation during the season because in football you can lose one goal but you have to be stable".

"When people come to Anfield, you know what the atmosphere's going to be like and I thought that was the best I've played in".

The Reds 4-3 win over City had social media buzzing as all the action provided an absolutely flawless commercial for the Premier League.

"Phil is a world-class player but we have played a lot of games in the past without him that were very good", he said.

Meanwhile, Chelsea were held to a goalless draw with Leicester and Arsenal slipped to eight points adrift of fourth place with a 2-1 defeat at Bournemouth.

Goals from Antonio Valencia, Anthony Martial and Romelu Lukaku wrapped up the three points for Jose Mourinho's men as they managed to capitalise on City's slip-up at the weekend.

'"My agent is looking after everything but I am here until the summer".
