Pep Guardiola’s side failed to break the Anfield jinx as Liverpool got a narrow win courtesy of Georginio Wijnaldum’s 8 minutes header which secured the victory for Klopp’s men.
Pep Guardiola needed to win, to break the Anfield jinx and move on to the second position before the match, but that mission seemed practically impossible as his side found it difficult to achieve that aim.
This means Manchester City’s dream of winning the premier league title under Pep Guardiola in his first season look jeopardized as they are now 10 points adrift of title leaders Chelsea.
Manchester City laboured at Anfield, but their effort did not yield any result. In fact their performance improved in the second half but Guardiola’s men failed to get a draw.
Kun Aguero who just returned from a four-match ban did not make a single touch in Liverpool’s 18-yard box, making it difficult for City to achieve their desired result.
Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola met for the first time in England after meeting 8 times in Bundesliga.
