  • October 17, 2022

Liverpool vs Manchester City, Premier League Highlights: Liverpool ignited their Premier League season as Mohamed Salah’s late goal earned them a stormy 1-0 win over Manchester City to leave Arsenal four points clear at the top on Sunday.
Salah, fresh from his quickfire hat-trick in midweek against Rangers in the Champions League, latched onto a long clearance by goalkeeper Allison in the 76th minute and fired into the net to inflict a first defeat of the season on champions City.
City, who could have gone 16 points clear of their hosts with a win, had a Phil Foden goal disallowed, while Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp was shown a red card for remonstrating with a linesman after a tackle on Salah.
Follow highlights from LIV vs MCI below.
Liverpool almost there as they wind down the clock as Tsmikas comes in for Jota. A free kick and City’s last chance a de Bruyne’s kick is cleared off. And all over!!! Liverpool remain unbeaten. City will not be. 
LIV 1-0 MCI
That another curious pass from Nunez as he chooses Trent near the far post rather than Carvalho in the middle and the Englishman hits the post.
LIV 1-0 MCI
Night keeps getting longer for Liverpool as 6 minutes of extra time is given.
LIV 1-0 MCI
Trent is on for Salah now. Final minute of regulation time now. City are doing everything they can to hoove the ball to the Liverpool half. LIV 1-0 MCI
Another mistake from Cancelo leaves Liverpool with a three-on-one. Nunez tries to shoot from 20 yards out even though Salah was free to his right. The shot is blocked. Poor play.
LIV 1-0 MCI
And a furious Jurgen Klopp has been sent off by the referee as the match becomes uglier. Silva and Salah had got into a bit of a wrestling match in the corner but no foul. Salah was incensed. 
LIV 1-0 MCI
Short corner by Gundogan, gets it back from Foden, Tries a shot from the edge of the penalty box and Alisson down in an instant for a comfortable save.
LIV 1-0 MCI
City are keeping the ball now, trying to equalize. Cancelo with a voleyed pass, first time towards Haaland who would have had a tap in but the big frame of Van Djik is in the way.
LIV 1-0 MCI
Moooooooooo SALAHHHHH!!!! With a quarter of an hour to go, Salah scores at the Kop end. Cancelo is turned inside out by Liverpool’s talisman as he curls the ball past Ederson for a magnificent goal!!!!
LIV 1-0 MCI

A triple change for the Reds sees Nunez, Carvalho and Henderson come on to replace Firmino, Fabinho and Elliott. 
Chance for Salah and that’s again dragged wide by the Egyptian King. Tries a curler but that’s pretty far away from goal even as Ederson dives. 
LIV 0-0 MCI
Haaland is denied again by Alisson!! What a game the Brazilian keeper is having. The Norwegian striker gets the ball in a free space but the ball is played a bit away from him. He shoots but did not get it right.
LIV 0-0 MCI
Great run down the flanks by Jota who puts a cross inside, all the City defenders miss it and it falls to Eliott whose first touch lets him down. He is crowded out. City clear.
LIV 0-0 MCI
uge chance for Liverpool again as a floated ball by Salah is headed wide by Jota. That should have gone in!!! Absolutely edge of the seat stuff now.
LIV 0-0 MCI

And just like that City are ahead!!! GOOOOAAALLLL!!! Alisson goes down to deny Haaland but it falls to Foden as the Englishman slots it home. Liverpool players are irate!! They think it’s a foul on Haaland. The VAR has asked the referee to look for himself. No, they are checking for the foul by Haaland on Fabinho!! And the goal is chalked off!!
LIV 0-0 MCI

Ohhhhhhh!! Chance!!! Salah breaks away and he’sone on one with the goalkeeper and he has shot it wide!!! No, it was Ederson’s save!!! What a save to deny the Egyptian. I thought that he had scored!!
LIV 0-0 MCI
Why didn’t Salah pass the ball to Jota?

A cagey start to the second half as Gundogan and Bernardo have swapped positions. Gundogan comes down to the deep while Silva is at a more advanced position.
LIV 0-0 MCI
And that’s the whistle to start the second half. Both team witout any changes. But the question is for how long?
LIV 0-0 MCI
Erling Haaland in the first half vs. Liverpool:

◉ Most touches in opp. box (9)
◉ Most shots (4)
◉ Most shots on target (2)

No goals so far though.. pic.twitter.com/y6jBEHSU3r
The first half is almost over and it has just flown by considering nothing really major happened in this half thus far. Both team had half chances but it’s still 0-0 at Anfield as the first half ends.
HT: LIV 0-0 MCI
