When Liverpool play you know there are going to be goals scored, and a lot of them, taking into account the fact that Liverpool also has some defensive problems. For the match against Manchester City we placed a bet with William Hill on over 3.5 goals per match and we won the bet at the same pace Liverpool won the match with a resounding 3-2.
It was clear from the very start of the match that the Citizens won’t be able to keep up with the pace set by Liverpool and the hosts even managed to open the score first. After a touching minute of silence for the Hillsborough victims, with an Anfield that has never been this quiet, Liverpool was the team with a goal set when Sterling opened the score on the 6th minute, and then Skrtel doubled the advantage on the 26th minute.
Towards the end of the first half, Mignolet made an excellent save, and even if Fernandinho slipped down during his cross it didn’t take away from the save which kept Liverpool leading with 2-0 in the first half. During the second half, after Milner was introduced, City picked up pace and David Silva scored on the 57th minute. Five minutes later Man City leveled the score after the ball they sent in, deflected from Glen Johnson and took Mignolet by surprise.
Daniel Sturridge was taken off the field with an injury and after Joe Allen came on, Coutinho moved to provide further depth to Liverpool’s midfield, which of course was bound to end in a goal. Just 10 minutes after Coutinho entered the play he scored Liverpool’s winner, and left Manchester City stunned. Liverpool were left with 10 men when Henderson received a red card after a foul on Nasri, but they withstood the rest of the match bravely.
With Anfield Road chanting, all Liverpool players and staff went on to their captain, for whom they play and whom everyone wants lifting the Premier League trophy this year. But this could only happen if Liverpool wins all of their remaining matches including the one against Chelsea.
