The Argentinian adjusted Simon Mignolet after Kevin De Bruyne's through ball split the middle back matching of Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan. 
Liverpool had been made to pay for missed shots, with Mohamed Salah particularly punishable. The Reds' No.11 had dashed away down the correct twice, the first run through neglecting to supply a cross when selecting to utilize his left foot as opposed to right, and the second time neglecting to complete past 'guardian Ederson when in one-on-one. 
It deteriorated not long after, with Sadio Mane demonstrated a straight red card for a high foot on Ederson. It was a disputable choice, however without a doubt the foot was high and jeopardizing an adversary.

The Senegal assailant will now miss games against Burnley and Leicester twice (League and League Cup). 
City were in the power and included a moment before half-time, Gabriel Jesus heading home from short proximity from a De Bruyne cross from the Liverpool right side. 
Klopp had settled on Trent Alexander-Arnold at ideal back finished Joe Gomez, yet the adolescent had persevered through a torrid first half, shanking a freedom and grabbing a reserving for a senseless test on De Bruyne.

Liverpool's protection an outright shambles 
Mane's red card dubious yet presumably legitimized 
Liverpool's midfield was a shambles 
It was a troublesome presentation appearance then for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who supplanted Salah at the break as Klopp changed shape to 3-5-1 with Emre Candropping into the back three. 
The second half was a discount however, particularly when Jesus included his second and City's third only eight minutes in when Aguero played in his colleague for a simple wrap up. A poor ball forward by Jordan Henderson gave the ball away efficiently in the development and Liverpool were effortlessly uncovered once more. 
Klopp selected to pull back Gini Wijnaldum, who had been completely undetectable once more in an away diversion, with James Milner going ahead. 
Dominic Solanke supplanted Roberto Firmino, with next to no point of keeping the Brazilian on.

Sane then scored to make it 5-0 from outside the box in stoppage time.
Liverpool were absolutely shambolic after going to 10 men, and a better defense was needed. Liverpool vs Sevilla should be on the cards now in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.
