Sunday’s tilt between Liverpool and Manchester City at Anfield is living up to the hype.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain‘s early goal gave Liverpool a lead, but the visitors responded through a truly venomous Leroy Sane strike before halftime.

Jurgen Klopp‘s plan had been compact high-pressure, his formation moving with and without the ball, and the Reds have allowed precious few chances to the unbeaten PL leaders.

And it was a low hard drive from Oxlade-Chamberlain (above) which opened up his options before the match was 10 minutes old, the ex-Arsenal man lacing a shot past a diving Ederson.

Man City, to the surprise of few, had an answer before the break. An overeager Joe Gomez let Sane’s chest trap befuddle him, and the German then cooked Joel Matip before blasting an effort past Loris Karius to make it 1-1.
