Liverpool head to Manchester City on Thursday night, newly crowned as Premier League champions.

Pep Guardiola’s side will give Jurgen Klopp’s title-winners a guard of honour as they emerge onto the pitch.

City are almost certainly set to finish second this season but will want to keep the squad finding form and fitness in league games to benefit them in the two cups they still have to play for.

Sharing the full story, not just the headlines

50′ – Man City 3-0 Liverpool

​Alexander-Arnold throws the ball straight in to Jesus, who goes close to scoring. Then Sterling races through the middle and it takes a Fabinho tackle to deflect his shot wide.


2020-07-02T20:22:32.953Z

48′ – Man City 3-0 Liverpool

​Sterling and Alexander-Arnold have a few words with each other after a tussle in the corner. Alisson claims the corner to prevent any further damage.

SUBS

Second half

We are back underway and the Reds have made a change at the break.

LIV sub: Oxlade-Chamberlain on for Gomez. Should see Fabinho into the back line.


2020-07-02T20:15:56.840Z

Not the best defensive work we’ve ever seen from Liverpool, but City have been phenomenally clinical. The expected goals from that half are 1.47 – 0.26, which highlights just how good this finishing has been on almost every chance.

HALF TIME


2020-07-02T20:04:17.280Z

Half time

Man City 3-0 Liverpool

​Bit of a response here from City, if not necessarily a statement. One or two Liverpool defenders not quite at their usual imperious best, it’s fair to say.


2020-07-02T20:03:38.880Z

45+2′ – Man City 3-0 Liverpool

​Another half-chance for Liverpool, but a through-pass isn’t accurate and then Salah lofts a cross over everyone’s head.

GOAL!


2020-07-02T20:01:00.443Z

GOAL! – Man City 3-0 Liverpool

44′ – Brilliant goal. Foden and De Bruyne with a quick exchange of passes around Robertson and the young Englishman buries a clipped finish.

Seems that earlier yellow card was for Mendy, not for Jesus. Apologies, Gabriel.

YELLOW CARD


2020-07-02T19:56:45.933Z

41′ – Man City 2-0 Liverpool

​Walker has to intercept a cross by chesting it back to Ederson, who saves on the stretch. Gabriel Jesus appears to be booked for dissent.


2020-07-02T19:52:53.973Z

38′ – Man City 2-0 Liverpool

​Klopp not looking too happy, but the difference here is fine margins. It has been equal in terms of chances, but some clinical finishing from City while the Reds have been denied by woodwork and goalkeeper.

GOAL!


2020-07-02T19:50:19.950Z

GOAL! – Man City 2-0 Liverpool
 

34′ – Sterling doubles the lead! A quick break sees Robertson caught out of position, Foden plays it to Sterling and he finishes inside the near post for two.


2020-07-02T19:47:48.366Z

32′ – Man City 1-0 Liverpool

​Liverpool’s press almost pays dividends again, but Firmino and Fabinho between them can’t quite give Salah a shooting chance. Rodri caught in possession again there.


2020-07-02T19:46:12.096Z

29′ – Man City 1-0 Liverpool

​Mane goes flying past Garcia who ends in a heap on the ground. He’s into the area and has a chance to shoot, but instead tries to tee up Salah and Rodri intercepts.


2020-07-02T19:41:14.016Z

25′ – Man City 1-0 Liverpool

​Drinks break after that opening goal.

GOAL!


2020-07-02T19:40:27.896Z

GOAL! Man City 1-0 Liverpool

24′ – Up steps De Bruyne and the Belgian buries it into the bottom corner, sending Alisson the wrong way. City lead.

YELLOW CARD


2020-07-02T19:39:37.986Z

23′ – Man City 0-0 Liverpool

​Penalty to Man City! Gomez grapples with Sterling in the area, he goes down and it’s a yellow for the centre-back.


2020-07-02T19:38:55.383Z

22′ – Man City 0-0 Liverpool

​De Bruyne tries to take on Van Dijk and wants a penalty, but doesn’t get one and the ref pulls it back for an earlier foul instead.


2020-07-02T19:35:00.523Z

19′ – Man City 0-0 Liverpool

Woodwork! Firmino with a fine touch and reverse pass, Salah cuts inside on his left foot and drills one past Ederson—but it clatters the base of the post, hits Mane and bounces out for a goal-kick.


2020-07-02T19:33:48.906Z

18′ – Man City 0-0 Liverpool

Two runs which don’t quite work out: Salah races behind the defence but Robertson’s through ball is well overhit.

At the other end De Bruyne finds space in midfield and threads one for Jesus, but again he has run too early and is well offside, and Alisson saves anyway.


2020-07-02T19:29:09.863Z

14′ – Man City 0-0 Liverpool

Good pressing from Henderson and Firmino but City just about play the ball out with Mane lurking. De Bruyne beats Alexander-Arnold at the other end, but Fabinho is there to clear.
