CITY keeper Ederson took no chances upon his return to training - by wearing a protective skullcap.

What transpired was nothing short of a horror show for Liverpool. And very painful for Liverpool.

Manchester City, spearheaded by two South American strikers, issued a warning to the Premier League rivals in the emphatic win. Even with Liverpool on the attack, it was very evident that the rest of the team was not in their element for this key encounter.

"It was one, two passes, and Fernandinho could turn, that was the first problem only because Fernandinho had the ball and could play it to De Bruyne and Silva, but they didn't create many things from this".

Klopp then made his second questionable selection decision of the game after first playing the Estonian centre-half by withdrawing Salah for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, as the new signing was subjected to his second successive Premier League thrashing - albeit for different clubs.

But one major negative for Liverpool was Sadio Mane's first half red card.

Jurgen Klopp can insist the decision to dismiss Sadio Mane was wrong but referee Jon Moss had no option other than to brandish a red card.

Then came Mendy's best Tweet - mocking his full back partner at Manchester City, Kyle Walker.

The City supporter, though, would be the one to have the last laugh as Mane was eventually sent off for a high boot to the face of Ederson. Mane sets off after a through ball, as does Ederson, and the goalie gets there just before Mane who had raised his foot to try and flick the ball beyond him and catches his opponent.

City had taken the lead prior to this incident when Kevin De Bruyne's ideal pass sent Sergio Aguero through to round Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.

"We are not going to play with the XI who played on Saturday for the next 60 games". It seemed as if no-one was ready to assume any sort of leadership role and rally the team, post the Mané incident.

Klopp also admitted that Liverpool's hammering did not concern him about his side's long-term prospects.

"I wouldn't have wanted to play for a reason like this, an injury to a team-mate, but you always have to be prepared".

"You can close your eyes to it and say there isn't a problem, if you want to, you're more than capable of doing that".
