Everyone talking shit about City – Liverpool rivalry because there's no hate & fights. For me, it's refreshing to see a rivalry where teams are that good but still remain respectful. I don't think I've ever seen it before. As opposed to fights, which is every rivalry ever.

Manchester City dominated possession and had the majority of chances, including one for Sterling. However, Liverpool’s pure quality in their starting XI ensured the Reds always maintained a level of threat.
Pep Guardiola’s surprise for the game with Gabriel Jesus’ first start in months certainly paid off too. The Brazilian contributed well in pressing as well as bagging himself a key goal ahead of half time.
