Pep Guardiola praises Manchester City keeper over Mane collision

Brazil's Philippe Coutinho right celebrates with Brazil's Marquinhos center after scoring his side's second goal

On one side are journalists such as the Daily Mail's Ollie Holt, who said Moss made the right call by showing a red card, while former England legend Gary Lineker thought it was the wrong decision - as per the Telegraph.

Sadio Mane and Wijnaldum are seen asking for the ball in the middle on noticing the space exposed by the Man City defenders. However, the tough stand of Liverpool meant that the attacking midfielder didn't get his dream move and will need to carry on with The Reds. He just wanted to get the ball as soon as possible.

"I don't think they'd have won with 11 men, the way City were playing it would have been a tough afternoon for them, but you've got to be anxious about how Liverpool defend".

With a Champions League game in midweek to come, Liverpool introduced James Milner and Dominic Solanke to the action to replace the tiring legs of Georginio Wijnaldum and Firmino, with the pattern of play now having taken on an entirely different complexion to the first third.

"Obviously we knew it was going to be a very intensive game".

With this win, Manchester City provisionally lead the EPL table with 10 points, one point ahead of Manchester United, who are to be hosted by Stoke City later on Saturday.

Manchester City were in fine form in Saturday's destruction of 10-man Liverpool. "They didn't create many things", said the German manager.

Jurgen Klopp's side looked lost for periods of the game following the dismissal, and their defence looked increasingly unorganised.

Chiefly because their two-forward system showed real promise for the first time, but the fact that the whole team put in a near-faultless performance against a direct rival was hard to miss as well. The second goal helped us a lot.

He has not yet played a match for the Reds because of a reported back injury but played 47 minutes in two substitute appearances for the national team, scoring a trademark goal against Ecuador. In the last few seasons, both Guardiola and his predecessor Manuel Pellegrini struggled to exert their dominance over the other teams that would be challenging at the top of the table. You can't play them better than that.

We had our chances in the first half and we were maximum 60%.

Yes, we were not compact enough, all three up front were not really involved, we didn't jump in the midfield [and] go on Fernandinho.
