Also, Klopp has not been at his best this season and were 9th on the table after managing just two wins since the beginning of the season.

After a barren first-half draw, with both sides unable to find the back of the net, the game was on for another 45 minutes of play.

There was a moment of controversy after Alisson Becker spilled a pass after coming under intense pressure by the high-pressing Manchester City attack led by Erling Haaland.

Phil Foden was on standby to capitalize on the goalkeeper’s blunder and fire home to give Liverpool the lead.

The goal was controversial. Center referee, Anthony Taylor, alleged that Erling Haaland had fouled Fabinho in the build-up to the goal.
