Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has described his side’s 4-3 win over Manchester City on Sunday, as a “nice commercial” for the Premier League.
Klopp’s men ended Pep Guardiola’s side 22-match unbeaten run at Anfield in a pulsating game.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain opened scoring in the 9th minute, before Leroy Sane equalized for City.
Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah all scored within the space of nine second-half minutes to put Liverpool 4-1 up.
Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan then netted late on to create a tense finish.
“I’m really, really happy about it. I really respect the quality of the opponent. You can see what they can do. You watch and you see it and you know you have to deny ‘this’ and ‘that’ — all possible, but quite difficult.
“You need [a] really good football team to do that and, thank God, I have one. And that makes sense to try it and they tried really hard today.
“It was just a joy to watch – how both teams threw everything on the pitch. The wind made it sometimes a little bit tricky here or there.
“It’s just a nice commercial for Premier League football, to be honest, and the whole world was watching it. If somebody didn’t like football until now then probably they will say: ‘Ah that’s why you watch it all the time.’ I’m really happy about it,” Klopp told reporters after the game.
