Did referee Jon Moss snub Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp?

Did referee Jon Moss snub Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp?

Late in the first half, the Senegal worldwide caught Ederson with a high foot in the face as the goalkeeper raced out of his area to head the ball clear, a fraction of a second before Mane tried to reach it at full stretch. The hosts then took a firm grip after Mane's dismissal.

City temporarily moved to the top of the Premier League table after goals from Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus (2) and Leroy Sane (2) extended their unbeaten run to 12 matches. For the first time under Guardiola, the team weren't wasteful in front of goal, taking numerous chances they created as well as having two goals chalked off for offside.

City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne said: "I think the beginning was difficult, the intensity of the first half was very hard". Important victory. We are strong. He allowed the more creative players to expose the weaknesses shown by Ragnar Klavan, Joel Matip and the inexperienced Trent Alexander-Arnold by controlling the game, breaking up play and moving the ball intelligently and quickly.

The City number one then returned to the stadium towards the end of the game and, while Klopp was relieved to see the keeper looking well, the Reds boss feels Mane's challenge was an accident. "That changed the game and we know it".

Premier League predictions: Chelsea to keep up winning momentum, Spurs to bounce back, West Ham and Crystal Palace to lose

The Dutchman said: "You hope it never happens again but things can happen in a game and we must make sure, if it happens again, we do better with 10 men than we did". And now having missed on Virgil Van Dijk after the transfer window, the decision will only continue to haunt Jurgen Klopp until he pursues a new world-class central defender. Both teams did not defend really well. Pascal Groß scored twice and set up the third goal by Tomer Hemed, while James Morrison nabbed one back for the visitors. It was in a lot of moments very unlucky for us. That's when happened then the red card and we can not change it anymore.

"You can defend not perfectly and still win 5-0".

And afterwards, the 26-year-old praised the speed of City's passing, which he felt was key in securing three points against a side he rates as one of the best in the Premier League. We should have had more chances.

"We had one of these days where everything so obviously goes against us".
