Salah’s solitary strike ends Man City’s unbeaten start

7

Mohamed Salah condemned Manchester City to a first Premier League defeat of the season as Liverpool took all three points in a brilliant game at Anfield.

A long ball from Alisson was latched onto by Salah before he fired past Ederson to earn Liverpool just their third league win of the campaign.

Mohamed Salah has largely endured an underwhelming start to the campaign. But after a Champions League treble in midweek, the forward made the difference as Liverpool beat reigning champions Manchester City 1-0 at Anfield on Sunday.

Salah’s winning goal was just the tip of the iceberg. His performance showed he’s truly back, and Liverpool’s fighting spirit proved they are still – despite what the table says – one of England’s two best teams.

The win means that the Reds have moved eighth on the league table with six points behind Champions League spot after nine games.
