Despite losing Fenandiho in his midfield as the latter was not involved. Still Pep's team was not an easy one to beat. The home team infact was nowhere near having a goal at first 45 minutes. With both Henderson and Curtis struggling to contain the visitors. Who had Kevin and Rodri in the middle of the park.
With two goals each in the second half as Mane opened the scoring to the home side. After a fine pass from Mo Salah. But within a short time Foden returned the managers favor of starting him with an equaliser. Later Salah would deliver a masterclass solo goal to put Liverpool ahead.
Only to last less than ten minutes as Kevin stood up to surprise the red's with a fine strike. Though it took a little deflection from Matip to deceive Allison. These kind of results blows the title race wide open especially between leaders Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City.
