To give him credit, the former Roma keeper did make a wonderful save on Aguero at the end of the match to keep the game from going 3-1.

Gary Neville singled out Trent Alexander-Arnold for special praise for the part he played in Roberto Firmino's goal during Liverpool FC's 2-1 loss to Manchester City at The Etihad on Thursday night.

The decision not to dismiss Kompany proved a crucial moment according to Klopp as City went on to snatch the points thanks to Leroy Sane's late victor after Roberto Firmino had cancelled out Sergio Aguero's opener.

Virgil van Dijk claims Liverpool will "definitely" bounce back from defeat at Manchester City, with there "no reason for panic" in an ongoing Premier League title bid.

City cut Liverpool's lead at the top of the Premier League to four points after a thrilling match that they won courtesy of superbly taken goals from Sergio Agüero and Leroy Sané.

"We went toe-to-toe with a very physical and aggressive team and we matched them for everything, if not more".

I'm still not not sure how it happened, but Stones then managed to react quickly and clear the ball off the line, nutmegging Salah in the process.

"Hendo [Jordan Henderson] was really impressive, and offensively I think we already had more moments [than City] in the game [before Fabinho came on], that's what we showed the boys at half-time".

"And the opponent is City and they are used to it much longer than we are".

John Stones then smacked his panicked clearance into City goalkeeper Ederson but the England worldwide redeemed himself by clearing just before all of the ball had crossed the line.

"He is last man and he goes in. It was that or let him go through on goal". "Was it not? All right", Kompany told Sky Sports. "All season we have taken it game by game and we will do that again", he said. We need to be ready and we will be.

City found a different way to win against Jurgen Klopp's side, defending courageously late on to preserve their lead.

"Sane scores and the situation with Sadio when he hit the post". Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has never won a trophy at any of his clubs and Tottenham have not been English champions since 1961. "We lost, but it's not the biggest problem".
