Liverpool's Senegalese striker Sadio Mane was shown a straight red card in the 37th minute for a high challenge on City's goalkeeper Ederson.

The tackle required Ederson to be replaced by Claudio Bravo following a lengthy delay.

Gomez and Lovren were both replaced, as Klopp said, because they were not as sharp in training - with both players being heavily involved in two games over the course of the worldwide weekend.

A third for Pep Guardiola's men was quick to arrive after the break, Aguero putting the ball on a plate for Jesus to grab a brace eight minutes after a fine pass from Fernandinho in the build-up.

The reds started well - Mo Salah seeing plenty of the ball with Otamendi picking up an early yellow card.

"Also in the second half a lot of things, you don't lose 5-0 when a lot of things are right, but it's not that I am concerned in the long term". "I was still the same player, I worked with the same intensity, but the decisions are taken by the coach".

Mane was involved in a nasty collision with City goalkeeper Ederson during the first half of the Premier League clash on Saturday afternoon.

"It's an experience, a very bad one, but that's how life is", Klopp said. He was shocked about the situation.

"Hopefully it is not a serious injury but whatever happens it is unlucky". The Brazilian had to leave the game because he had suffered an extremely unsafe kick in the head and was carried off the field. It was fearless. Unfortunately, he is injured but hopefully, he will come back as soon as possible.

"I know what people think, but Phil had the back problem a few weeks ago and couldn't train".

The Reds are also unbeaten in their last six Premier League away games stretching back to last season, and six points from two games against Arsenal and Man City either side of the global break would certainly serve to strengthen their title credentials.

"After 10 v 11 it was a little bit easier for us, and we played the second half the way we wanted to".

"If we lose too much confidence because of this game, we make a mistake".
