Manchester City claimed Capital One Cup that Liverpool so greatly desired and the Reds weren’t going to forget it. They made sure that City got what was coming to them in their mid-week Premier League match.
Liverpool reduced the might of Manchester City with a 3-0 defeat! The three goals came from Lallana (34′), Milner (41′) and Firmino (57′). Perhaps Man City weren’t the ones to get the very last laugh!
Nevertheless, both teams were successful in their weekend matches. Manchester City bounced back into form with a 4-0 victory over Aston Villa; whilst Liverpool defeated Crystal palace 2-1,despite the sending off of Milner in the 62nd minute. It was Benteke’s penalty in the 6th minute of extra time that saved the day!
Liverpool is up to 7th place on the PL table; Manchester City is at fourth. No matter what both teams throw at each other, they’ve both shown that they have the spirit to bounce back better and bolder!
