Finally, The Reds is Defeated

The Premier League’s unbeaten record — the Premier League’s top caste — this season is broken in the Manchester City vs Liverpool match at the Etihad Stadium on Thursday (01/03/2019). The Reds — the nickname of Liverpool — were beaten in the match with the host in the 21st week of the Premier League. As a result, Liverpool have lost hope of imitating the steps of Arsenal who did a full season when winning the English League 2003-2004 without being defeated by opponents. At that time, the Gunners were not tainted by defeat in 38 parties with a record of 26 wins and 12 draws.

The Citizens — nicknamed Man City — won 2-1. Man City’s two winning goals were scored by Sergio Aguero (40 ‘) and Leroy Sane (72’). The Liverpool goal was scored by Roberto Firmino (64 ‘).

Despite the first defeat, Liverpool remained at the top of the standings with 54 points from 21 matches. They are four points ahead of Manchester City. In this match, the visitors actually had the chance to excel first in the 18th minute. However, Sadio Mane’s shot which had hit the pole was successfully thrown out by John Stones. Public in Etihad Stadium finally cheered in the 40th minute. Sergio Aguero broke the hosts’ deadlock after receiving a cross from Bernardo Silva and made goalkeeper Alisson Becker only hold the net. Left behind 0-1 in the first round, Liverpool increased the intensity of the attack in the second half. Roberto Firmino managed to convert Andy Robertson’s bait in the 64th minute with a header to make the score equally strong.

Man City’s winning goal was created in the 72nd minute. Former Liverpool player Raheem Sterling became the creator of The Citizens’ second goal scored by Leroy Sane through a left-foot shot. This 2-1 score lasted until the fight was over. Liverpool suffered their first defeat in the Premier League this season and Man City managed to cut the distance between the points and standings. Next, Liverpool will face Wolverhampton Wanderers in the FA Cup third round this weekend. After that, Liverpool’s opponents in the Premier League were mid-board clubs such as Brighton & Hove Albion, Crystal Palace, and Leicester City.
