Salah’s goal the difference as Liverpool defeat City in Blockbuster clash

Liverpool inflicted the first defeat on Manchester City in the Premier League campaign this season, securing a 1-0 win at Anfield.

Mohamed Salah marked a return to form with the decisive goal, scoring a sublime effort by turning Joao Cancelo before clipping his strike over Ederson.

Alisson was again the one who assisted the Egyptian with a long range clearance.

Salah had earlier missed a one-on-one, which looked to be costly when Phil Foden found the net. However, Foden’s effort was disallowed by VAR for a foul by Erling Haaland on Fabinho.

City were to rue the foul as they slumped to their first loss of the season and are now four points off the pace of Arsenal at the top of the table.

All in all, it was a close game, with plenty of controversies, as Jurgen Klopp even got himself sent off by Referee, Anthony Taylor.
