    Love it when everyone in the outfield  team can score a goal.

    I will rewatch and enjoy the whole game without the jitters. It was a great game for neutrals. Pep and everyone saying it was a fantastic game is maybe a snide remark against other teams (especially Man U) not coming to play at Anfield?

    Watched the highlights several times since the game finished.

    Just want to point out one detail I noticed for our first goal.

    When Mane has the ball and is dribbling forward - watch him closely - he does a small signal to Firmino telling him to change his run ... Mane notices Firmino is going to come short for the inside ball well outside the box. Mane signals to Firmino to instead make a forward run into the box.

    Firmino sees the signal and then runs full throttle into the box - draws a City defender near post - ball gets played behind them, half cleared by City and Fabinho smashes it home.

    If Mane doesn't make that signal to Firmino to change his run - we would not have scored, only Salah was in the box at the back post.

    Watch it again.

    If Firmino continued with his run to receive a short pass 25 yards out from goal, Mane would not have driven forward with the ball and put in the subsequent cross because Salah was the only player in the box and City had the defensive numbers to deal with it.

    If Firmino doesn't make that run, Mane would have instead had to play the ball to him inside, or made a pass to another player not in a position to be an attacking threat.

    Mane realises this very quickly - it's brilliant awareness.

    Here's a clip of the goal.

    Watch Mane closely when he signals to Firmino to change his run.

    I mean it’s a stretch to credit it with influencing the goal.

    Players make those kinds of gesture 1000 times a game. Even then there’s no goal if gudnagon clears properly of another 50 things that happened in that passage before the goal

    The intention was for Firmino to draw the defender so Salah could run free to the penalty spot for the pass. It failed completely and Man City cleared it... to Fab.

    Haha nah it was 00.30 start here ... but I didn't get to bed until 05.30 I was that hyped after the game so was reading all the reviews and comments (and also the stream I was watching showed 30 mins of goals from previous City vs Liverpool matches over the past 20 years - awesome).

    I only managed to see . the highlights and all I could think of is...

    (1) Fab's is a wonder goal.

    (2) WHAT A FUCKING CROSS THAT WAS

    How is the media not talking about this more?? Offside? He should be given an award for that assist.

    Gini was majestic. The way he draws the challenge instead of shirking his duties and going for the pass, then wriggling out unscath was brilliant to watch. And against some of the best players in the country.

    What a bunch of losers. So it doesn't matter it hit Silva's hand but it does matter if it hits Trents? What an absurd logic.

    Not sure I understand the natural position thing, every player has at least one of their hands further away from their body than Trent. So, I don't really know what a acceptable natural position is.
