Premier League

Man City 4-0 Liverpool

The former champions of the Premiel League, Manchester City outplayed, outclassed and outpowered the current champions Liverpool with a comfortable 4-0 win at the Ethihad Stadium in Manchester.

First half goals from Kevin De Bruyne, Rahim Sterling and Phil Foden, and a frustrated second half own own by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain inflicted this giant humiliation on the Reds.

Liverpool's troubles began on the 25th munites when referee Anthony Taylor awarded the Sky Blues a penalty when Joe Gomez was punished for a tactical foul in the penalty area. De Bruyne converted the spot coolly when he run up to the ball, stopped and wait for Alisson to commit before slotting the ball into the bottom left corner.

Sterling added the second after 35 munites into the game when he latched on a precise pass from Phil Foden and beats the goal keeper with a low accurate shot into the bottom left corner.

The provider of the second goal added the third with a sublime finish on the stroke of half time. Foden was teed up on the edge of the box by Kevin De Bruyne and he superbly shot into the roof of the net.

It was a game to forget for the Anfield lads as Alex Oxlade -Chamberlain put the ball into his own net to make it four

It could have been worst if Mahrez's goal had stood to make it five, but VAR saved Liverpool in added time.

Liverpool could have had a consolation themselves, if not for the intervention of VAR which overuled a penalty for them on the 57minutes.

Notwithstanding this embarrassment, Liverpool remain worthy champions of the 2019/2020 Premier League season.
