Mahrez Wins as Man City Crush Salah, Liverpool 4-1

Mo Salah’s solitary goal failed to lift champions Liverpool over visiting Manchester City who went on a rampage in the second half to secure a 4-1 victory at Anfield on Sunday evening.

The Phil Foden-inspired visitors headed to their first win at Anfield since 2003, pushing them five points clear at the top of the Premier League with a game in hand.

Ilkay Gundogan scored twice after an earlier penalty miss, Raheem Sterling notched a header and the excellent Foden netted a sensational late goal crushed Liverpool’s title defence hopes.

Liverpool – who also lost at Brighton in midweek – stay fourth and are now 10 points off the top after back-to-back defeats and another hammer blow to their title defence.

Speaking after the encounter, Manchester City midfielder Foden, said: “When you beat the champions your confidence is sky high. So it can help us a lot.

“It’s brilliant, every player wants to play in big games like this and we showed that courage from minute one. They made it so difficult for us but we showed our courage to play our football and keep going, and in the end it paid off.”

A disappointed Liverpool captain, Jordan Henderson, said the team got punished for their mistakes. He said, “Very disappointed with the result of course. I don’t think the end result reflected the performance to be honest but we made mistakes and got punished.

“We competed well, this was more like the performance we are used to but like I say mistakes at the wrong moments cost us.

“It is hard to take now but in football you have to move on quickly. We don’t look at the league table, just concentrate on the next game and try and win every game we can whether you are on top or fourth or fifth.”
