Twitter Reacts To Liverpool’s Sleep-Inducing 1-0 Win Against Manchester City

With Chelsea continuing their imperious form against Stoke, both Liverpool and City knew how valuable three points could be.

With the Blues leading Jurgen Klopp’s men by nine and Aguero and co. by ten, anything less than a win would be a disastrous way to end 2016.

The home side started well and got their reward quickly with Gini Wijnaldum’s bullet header putting them ahead.

The remainder of the first half was uneventful in the main with neither team really threatening the opposition goal.

Former Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling was, unsurprisingly, the subject of plenty of criticism from the Kop.

City had the better of it in the opening minutes of the second half but, in truth, didn’t look all that threatening.

They barely registered a shot in their rather feeble search for an equaliser and Wijnaldum’s goal proved to be the winner.

Next up for Liverpool is a potentially tricky trip to Sunderland while Guardiola’s charges will host Sean Dyche’s Burnley at the Etihad.
