Manchester City got their first convincing win of the Premier League season after a comprehensive 5- 0 win over 10-man Liverpool, who had Sadio Mane sent off in the first half , Sky Sports reports.
Sergio Aguero gave City the lead in the 24th minute before Liverpool were reduced to 10 men after Mane’ s high boot caught Ederson – who was stretchered from the field – in the jaw.
Gabriel Jesus extended the hosts’ advantage either side of the break before substitute Leroy Sane rounded off the scoring with a late double as City inflicted Liverpool’ s first defeat of the season – their biggest under Jurgen Klopp in all competitions .
After their 4- 0 thrashing of Arsenal, Liverpool started brightly with Mohamed Salah causing Nicolas Otamendi plenty of problems in the opening stages . In the 22nd minute Salah skipped past Otamendi, who was booked in the early stages , and burst into the penalty area , but the forward ’ s weak effort was scooped up by Ederson at his near post.
The miss proved costly as City took the lead two minutes later , somewhat against the run of play . Kevin De Bruyne ’ s inch-perfect pass dissected the Liverpool defence to release Aguero and the Argentine rounded Simon Mignolet to slot the ball home.
Then came the game’ s big talking point . Mane was released in behind the City defence but clattered into the on -rushing Ederson , catching the City ‘ keeper in the face with a high boot. Referee Jon Moss did not hesitate in brandishing a red card as Ederson left the field on a stretcher.
Things got even worse for the visitors when Jesus , who minutes earlier had an effort ruled out for offside , headed home De Bruyne ’ s cross from close range as City doubled their advantage just before the break .
Pep Guardiola made three changes following City ’ s dramatic victory at Bournemouth – two forced , one tactical . Sergio Aguero came in for the suspended Raheem Sterling and John Stones replaced captain Vincent Kompany after he sustained an injury on international duty . The third change saw Kyle Walker return from suspension, with Bernardo Silva dropping to the bench
