After going on an 18-match winning streak, Manchester City found themselves drawing against an unlikely opponent, Crystal Palace in a game that many saw it could have won.
Manchester City had become the team to beat and they showed this by dispatching all the top 6 teams in the first round with so much ease.
A string of back to back games have however seen the Citizens show signs of cracking and it was only a matter of time before they got beaten.
Many times, fans watch a game and are left puzzled at how the game was played or officiated but the game against Liverpool was nothing shy of pure entertainment.
Jurgen Klopp fielded a team that lacked the presence of star player Phillipe Coutinho and many thought that the Kops would fail against Manchester City but it was a spectacle worth watching.
For Manchester United and Chelsea fans, this was a great result as it meant that they had closed down the gap on the table leaders.
For Arsenal, nothing much really in terms of this season but all they wanted was to ensure that their beloved history of invisibility was kept intact, talk about lack of purpose and ambition.
Goals from Chamberlain, Firminho, Salah and Mane ensured that Liverpool won the game against City by 4 goals to 3 in a mouthwatering encounter.
For Manchester City, this means that they have to get back to the drawing board and find means to get themselves back into winning ways while for Liverpool and the rest of the chasing pack, this is a sign that they too are still in this title run and that’s particularly United and City.
Pep Guardiola was happy with the way Liverpool handled their business and attacked them from the onset till the very last minute and for Jurgen, this could be a sign of what is to come in the next coming games.
