Manchester City’s 22-match unbeaten run in the Premier League has come to an abrupt end with a 4-3 loss to Liverpool in an enthralling game at Anfield.
Liverpool showed their intent to win the match as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored in the 9th minute. Leroy Sane later equalised for the Blues in the 40th minute.
With the score at 1-1, Roberto Firmino chipped goalkeeper Ederson Moraes to regain the lead for Liverpool in the 59th minute. Sadio Mane smashed a rising shot high into the net in the 61st and Mohamed Salah capitalized on a weak clearance from Ederson to score from 45 meters (yards) in the 68th.
Interestingly, before Sunday, City had won 20 games and drawn its other two this season, leading many to believe Pep Guardiola’s side could emulate Arsenal’s “Invincibles” of the 2003-04 season. But this will never happen as Liverpool ended their unbeaten run.
