Guardiola’s Anfield woes, Liverpool’s early-season dominance and all the stats after Reds best Citizens

A number of amazing statistics stemming from Liverpool’s victory over Manchester City this evening have emerged across social media.

Liverpool win again

Jurgen Klopp’s table-toppers welcomed City to Anfield a short time ago, for a Premier League showdown.

Hosts Liverpool entered proceedings sitting pretty 6 points clear of the champions in the English top-flight table, with the Citizens having actually fallen behind both Leicester and Chelsea in the standings following Saturday’s results.

As such, ahead of kick-off, many agreed on the suggestion that a Liverpool win over City would see the Reds essentially secure the Premier League title, despite it only being November.

And, when all was said and done, secure their latest 3-point haul was precisely what the European champions managed.

Fabinho put the hosts in front with a rasping strike from distance with just 6 minutes on the clock, after Manchester City were denied what they felt was a stonewall penalty at the other end.

Mohamed Salah then doubled Liverpool’s advantage before the quarter of an hour mark, nodding home Andy Robertson’s pinpoint delivery.

And the clash was all-but ended as a contest shortly after the interval, as Jordan Henderson’s sumptuous whipped ball from the right was met by Sadio Mane, to make it 3-0 to the hosts.

Bernardo Silva did manage to pull one back for City 10 minutes from time, but, when all was said and done, it proved little more than a consolation.

Guardiola’s Anfield woes
