The German was typically animated during Sunday's seven-goal thriller at Anfield, where City's 22-game unbeaten league run this season was ended by the hosts.

And the Kop faithful were crowing even louder when Oxlade-Chamberlain put Liverpool ahead in the ninth minute.

Liverpool led 4-1 midway through the second half thanks to goals from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah - the last three of which came in an eight-minute spell around the hour mark.

The Brazilian contributed 20 goals in as many games this season for the Reds prior to his switch, and it was perhaps fitting that the player who took his place in the XI - the one who said the club have to "just move on" - was the scorer of the opener against the leaders.

"Pep Guardiola will be calm - he said they would lose a game".

But by half-time, Karius had made a mistake with the first shot he had to save by allowing Sane's 41st-minute shot to beat him at the near post.

Substitute Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan scored late on to raise hopes of an unlikely comeback but Liverpool held on to extend their own unbeaten run to 18 matches, their longest sequence since 2008.

"In the second half we started really good", he said. Moments later, Mane curled a shot against the post but was more precise the following minute when he lashed home a left-footed piledriver from the edge of the area after Nicolas Otamendi was dispossessed.

Liverpool, whose win sent them third, could have been forgiven for adopting a conservative approach after being thumped 5-0 by City in the reverse fixture this season, but Klopp's plan to attack was vindicated.

The ending of their 30-match unbeaten run, stretching back to April, handed Manchester United the chance to cut City's lead to 12 against Stoke on Monday.

Salah then got in on the act himself, scooping Ederson's poor attempted clearance over the goalkeeper and into the net from 40 yards.

Sane's second goal in his last 15 appearances should have restored City's equilibrium and they nearly took the lead soon after the interval when Nicolas Otamendi's looping header hit the crossbar.

What a hero. Here's how Liverpool fans reacted to Lovren - who was named captain to face City - holding up Firmino's shirt.

But the opening stages were being dominated by Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool and Salah shot wide after 15 minutes following a break before De Bruyne was again involved as his cross fizzed just beyond Sergio Aguero.

The contest looked to be over, with Liverpool's quickfire attack too much for a shellshocked City side.

Klopp and Guardiola embrace at the final whistle.
