Liverpool have succumbed to their first defeat of the season – a 5-0 drubbing at the hands of Manchester City.

Having started the season positively with a draw and two wins, Liverpool went into Saturday afternoon’s clash with the Citizens in confident mood. However, what transpired has understandably left some Reds more than a little worried.

With the game finely poised at 1-0, the turning point came in the 37th minute as Sadio Mane’s high leg caught City stopper Ederson in the face following a long ball out from the back.

Opinion on the decision to award Mane a red card has, generally, been split, but some were certainly aggrieved by the outcome.

The performance in general has, however, been the main focus of discussion following a putrid afternoon for the Reds.

The result on its own does not have a huge bearing on Liverpool’s position in the table at this early stage but losing so comprehensively to one of your top four rivals does not bode well for the future.

Pep Guardiola’s side’s attentions now turn to Wednesday night and the club’s opening Champions League group stage clash against Feyenoord in Rotterdam while Liverpool have a tough clash with Sevilla to come.
