Liverpool dominant in 4-1 away win over Manchester City
MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Liverpool produced its best performance so far under new manager Juergen Klopp to beat Premier League title chasers Manchester City 4-1 on Saturday.
First-half goals from Brazilian duo Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino following Eliaquim Mangala's own goal stunned the hosts.
Fit-again striker Sergio Aguero pulled one back shortly before the interval, curling a splendid effort beyond Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.
Firmino should have netted his second on the hour-mark after another swift counterattack from the visitors but Joe Hart foiled his effort.
Substitute Christian Benteke was also denied by Hart after being played through by Jordan Ibe. Defender Martin Skrtel thumped in the fourth from the resulting corner in Liverpool's biggest win of the season.
City slipped to third on 26 points. Liverpool is ninth with 20 points.
