Liverpool triumph over Manchester City thanks to a spectacular goal from Mohamed Salah, as Jurgen Klopp is sent off.

In a thrilling game at Anfield that also saw Jurgen Klopp receive a red card, Mohamed Salah’s incredible second-half goal gave Liverpool a 1-0 victory over Manchester City.

Fresh off his six-minute hat-trick against Rangers, Salah displayed excellent footwork to intercept Alisson’s long ball, evade Joao Cancelo, and beat Ederson with a clinical finish in the 76th minute to help Liverpool put their recent problems behind them.

When the hosts were refused a free kick for what appeared to be a foul by Bernardo Silva on Salah, whose goal broke a five-game Premier League scoreless skid, Klopp was given his marching orders and was later dismissed.

Pep Guardiola was furious earlier in the game after a Phil Foden goal was reversed by video assistant referee (VAR) because Erling Haaland was adjudged to have fouled Fabinho in the build-up.

After having their worst start to a season in ten years, Liverpool entered the game 13 points behind City. However, they defended resolutely, becoming just the second Premier League team this season to deny Haaland a goal. They then capitalized when Salah, who had earlier been denied by Ederson in analogous circumstances, caused an uproar at Anfield with a goal that gives their season new life.
