Watch Liverpool huge amazing match with goals!!!
Outstanding Salah goal keeps Liverpool undefeated.
Liverpool match kept their perfect record intact despite Manchester City twice coming from behind in a 2-2 draw at Anfield thanks to a spectacular solo goal from Mohamed Salah.
As the champions controlled a scoreless first half, City’s goal scorers Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne had the greatest chances to break the scoreless tie.
On 59 minutes, though, Sadio Mane’s 99th Premier League goal gave Liverpool match the lead after Salah’s brilliant breakaway play.
After Gabriel Jesus had found him, Foden scored City’s equaliser on minute 69 with a drilled finish from an extreme angle.
On the 76th minute, Salah’s incredible solo effort gave Liverpool match the lead once again. He outran four Man City players and shot off the post from a tight angle.
Five minutes later, De Bruyne equalised with a shot from the edge of the box, and Fabinho, a midfielder for the Reds, was denied a late winner by an outstanding sliding block from Rodri.
Liverpool is still undefeated but now sits in second place with 15 points. They are one point and one position below Man City.
Salah quickly reminded everyone in the first half of the game why he merits the enormous contract. He received the game’s first significant opportunity when he slipped through the Manchester City defence, but his shot was stopped by the side netting.
A few minutes later, Kevin de Bruyne paid it forward by directing the ball to the corner of the 18-yard box. Virgil van Dijk thankfully moved the shot off-target for a corner. Poor free kick was awarded as a result.
In the opening 15 minutes, Liverpool appeared to be in greater control than the other team, but all their good build-up play resulted in was Salah’s attempt.
Liverpool not only had quicker reactions and better control during the game, but they were also intentionally swapping the ball back and forth across the breadth of the field. Their initial objective was achieved in one such occasion.
Thiago Alcantara received the ball from Dáz and delivered it on to Salah. A charging Trent Alexander-Arnold was given the ball by Salah. From just beyond the box, the youthful winger capitalised on the chance with his right foot and tucked the ball perfectly into the far corner.
After conceding the first goal,
City came out fighting, and Adrián was forced to make several big stops as Mahrez and de Bruyne both tried their luck. He did well to maintain his composure and handle the threat to keep Liverpool ahead as the first half progressed.
Liverpool led the game 1-0 at the half.
City made a quick drive in the second half. Adrián successfully completed his task once more by stopping Mahrez in close.
It took Liverpool a good ten minutes to get back into the game, but they eventually started to dictate the pace of play. Should the Reds make a mistake,
Manchester City appeared prepared to quickly advance on the counterattack.
Darwin Nùez is given the chance to showcase his talents. To raucous applause from the Liverpool crowd, he took Firmino’s spot in the front three.
Alvarez ties the scoring for Manchester City after some debate and a VAR review. The linesman flagged Phil Foden’s opening effort as being offside. Alvarez snuck it in on the rebound after Adrián botched the stop. The goals stood because VAR found that Foden was onside during the buildup.
Alexander-Arnold was replaced by Harvey Elliott, and James Milner and Jordan Henderson switched places and armbands.
Nùez made a significant contribution right away by making Rubian Dias handball a headed shot on goal. Salah stood in place for the penalty and calmly restored Liverpool’s advantage.
Naby Keta was given room by Thiago.
A few seconds later, Elliott provided Keta with a wonderful pass to play him in. His subsequent shot is stopped though.
In the 91st minute, the alarm goes off. Erling Haaland scored, but this time the replays went against City because it was evident that the ball had left the field of play before Foden brought it back in.
Nùez scores in stoppage time to complete a beautiful Liverpool victory and send all the Liverpool supporters into a frenzy. Robertson headed it down for Nùez to nod in after Salah floated it to him.
Haaland hit the ball off the crossbar once more for the opposition and was also offside at the time.
a fantastic way to begin the year. Nùez put on an amazing performance. We can only hope that this is the first of many victories for Liverpool.
Darwin Nunez’s skills help Liverpool win the Community Shield while Manchester City struggles to locate its centre of gravity. Haaland, Erling
At the King Power Stadium,
Liverpool defeated Manchester City 3-1 in the Community Shield.
In contrast, Pep Guardiola’s team failed to make the most of Erling Haaland as the Premier League season approached.
Darwin Nunez of the Reds clearly outperformed his opponent on a day when the Community Shield was all about the great strikers signed by Manchester City and Liverpool this summer.
Nunez put on an outstanding performance as a substitute, capping it with a stooping header to seal the 3-1 victory. The 23-year-old used his exceptional blend of speed, technique, and strength to seriously trouble the City backline.
Haaland, on the other hand, had a trying evening as evidenced by his blatant mistake from six yards out in the dying seconds. He and his teammates appeared unsure of how to combine with him.
Haaland will undoubtedly succeed because of his stellar track record, but according to early signs, City’s adjustment to having a focal point in their assault might take some time.
As a result of their 3-1 victory over City, Liverpool has now won all domestic cups under Jurgen Klopp. This is their first trophy of the 2022–23 campaign.
Trent Alexander-Arnold, Mohamad Salah, and newly acquired Darwin Nunez all scored goals to give the Reds the victory. Salah set up Alexander-Arnold on the edge of the box, and he scored Liverpool’s opening goal in the first half with a whip into the corner.
Alvarez tied the score for City in the second half following a protracted VAR review, but thanks to a handball late in the period, the Reds were given a penalty, which was converted by the Egyptian.
