Liverpool fan: 'I just have no faith in Jurgen Klopp!'

The 5-0 victory could easily be put down to playing with a man advantage for half the match, but that doesn't do justice to how well Pep Guardiola's team played.

City were already leading 1-0 when the incident occurred through Sergio Aguero's opener.

"After the global break, then one man down, young players on the pitch".

If the South American flavour continues to bloom this way, there's no reason why the two don't deserve to play together.

"We played really smart", City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne said.

United had scored 10 goals without reply in its three victories before the worldwide break.

It was a miserable Liverpool debut for Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain, whose last game for Arsenal was in a 4-0 rout by Klopp's team before the worldwide break.

United and Manchester City are the early pacesetters in the league, separated by only goal difference.

Ederson has allayed fears over his condition following a nasty clash with Sadio Mane in Manchester City's 5-0 win over Liverpool. "You have to take what you get and make the best of it".

During the first half, de Bruyne split a killer pass to Aguero for the opening goal and emerged as the creative fulcrum of the team, stretching opposition defenders out of position and also assisting with crosses.

After the game, Ederson tweeted: "Hi, everyone - I am well". He accidentally caught the Brazilian in the head and the 'keeper instantly fell to the ground.

Referee Jon Moss had no hesitation in brandishing the red card in the 37th minute.

"I think after the first goal we took more control of the game". "It was unlucky, it was an accident". He just wanted to get the ball as soon as possible.

"The only thing we didn't do a year ago was win the big games", De Bruyne, who set up goals for Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus, said after Saturday's match.

"The problems come at the back and were brutally exposed in the second half in a awful display, even given for the fact they were down to 10 men".

Liverpool was being carved open all too easily and Benajmin Mendy combined well with Sane for a well-worked fourth in the 77th.
