It’s sad that the national media have chosen to focus on a single “ball to hand” incident, instead of a pulsating game of football and some fabulous goals.

Sunday’s game wasn’t decided by any single incident, simply that Liverpool took their chances superbly and Manchester City fluffed almost all of theirs.

This wasn’t just the meeting of the two best teams in England, but two very different cultures.

Liverpool’s successful run so closely reflects the personality of its manager with a mental approach which says “we may not be the best but we can beat the best”.

The team has a unique level of modest self-belief, never the expectation that the players simply need to turn up to win the points.

Jurgen Klopp has created a team of genuine contenders, and that makes him a class above the rest.

During the build-up to Sunday’s game, Jurgen Klopp was accused by some mischief-makers of having a Kevin Keegan-style meltdown simply for defending one of his players.

If that was clutching at straws, worse was to come from Rodri and the rattled Guardiola after the game.

Other than a few set-pieces around Liverpool’s area before Fabinho’s goal and a scrappy last 20 minutes, Liverpool thoroughly deserved their win.

 

This was nothing to do with poor refereeing decisions but everything to do with a sea change in English football that’s been coming for the past few seasons.

We could grumble about another game without a clean sheet, but Sunday will be remembered for the goals, for Liverpool pulling nine points clear of City and perhaps as the beginning of the end of Liverpool’s long wait to be champions of England once again.

It was the big one on Sunday and this time it was the Champions of Europe who defeated the Champions of England.

Spurred on by an incredible Anfield atmosphere, this Liverpool side produced their best performance of the season and made a massive statement with a definitive win over the defending champions.

From front to back, every player was fantastic. Lovren and Van Dijk assured, the midfield imperious, Salah, Mane and Firmino magical, Trent and Robbo dominant - this was Liverpool at their very best.

Last season, it proved pivotal in the Premier League title race that Liverpool took just one point from the two games against Manchester City.

This time around, we already have three points after playing them once.

Reds fans know better than anyone that nothing is won yet - but to have an eight point gap over the competition with only a third of the season gone is a huge feat.

Yet another outstanding performance against City ensured their abysmal record of just one victory since 1981 at fortress Anfield remained intact.

Pep Guardiola had already gone on record as saying what a special and unique stadium Anfield is. And the Anfield crowd reacted with superb backing of the Reds before, during and after the final whistle.

This Liverpool team appear to be setting new records on a weekly basis, 51 Premier League matches unbeaten, 45 Premier League matches since their last home defeat and nearly six years since their last home defeat in Europe.

Andy Robertson, Virgil van Dijk, Sadio Mane, Mo Salah - just a few of the LFC players who have so far never experienced a home defeat.

Unsung heroes in Liverpool's midfield, Jordan Henderson, Gini Wijnaldum and Fabinho were the architects to this superb victory with their relentless work ethic, creativity and scoring prowess with superb displays from our flying full-backs Andy Robertson and TAA.
