Man City Annihilates The 'Pool, 5-0
This was supposed to be the Premiership's match of the day.
A contrast in the styles of Pep Guardiola and Jürgen Klopp.
Existentially speaking, it still was.
But ... whoa!
If nothing else, Liverpool has discovered that going 10-on-11 against Manchester City is not a good situation.
Dude loves picking on the 'Pool. That was was his sixth consecutive goal against them.
And no, dude didn't mean it.
But if there was an equivalent on the motorway, the police would've done Sané for distracted driving.
Klopp had no choice but to order a 4-4-1, but the reality is that ominous stuff was gonna happen.
Which it did.
Gabriel Jesus took advantage of extended injury time to put a coda on the first half with a fantastic finish:
When play rsumed after the intermission, City's first two goal scorers needed only eight minutes to combine for the game's third:
Dude then applied the final kick of the can in the first minute of time added on, which was worth it.
That one was the game's best goal:
It's early days, but Liverpool's got some work to do in order to regroup.
That'll include making plans for the next three matches -- one with Burnley, as well as league and Carabao Cup tilts with Leicester City -- without Sané.
