Liverpool's Emre Can: 'Rivals would have been amazed watching us against City'

Nottingham Forest v Arsenal- The Emirates FA Cup Third Round

The clash of this Sunday was worth watching and what a game this was.

Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah contributed to a dizzying spell of three goals in nine second-half minutes as Liverpool ripped the previously undefeated Premier League leaders to shreds.

"John Barnes when he came in the late 80s he was fantastic as soon as he came in". Sergio Aguero missed one last opportunity to level up in the last seconds of the match.

While Liverpool's win over Manchester City has moved the Reds into third spot, Arsenal slipped to defeat at Bournemouth and now sit eight points off the top four. For the Reds supporters on Merseyside - town. It was one of the best we have done, for sure.

Coaches comments on a dramatic second half. "Yes, you can win the lottery and they tackle each other or you can stand deep in your own box and hope nothing happens, but it's not likely".

"We knew before the game that is how we can deal with it".

OK, it's all possible but it's quite hard. "If somebody didn't like football they would probably say, "Oh, that's why you watch it all the time". They tried really hard today. "How both teams just threw everything on the pitch".

"We know how hard Anfield is and how aggressive Jurgen Klopp's side are", Guardiola added. We've seen a lot of times this season when City control the pace of the game and pass it around easily - but not against Liverpool.

But Klopp didn't care about the lack of a clean sheet, insisting Premier League fans had been treated to a real treat of a spectacle.

"Football's football, never say never", Jones told the British media. I am really happy about it.

"We did a good performance apart from a few minutes", said a rueful Guardiola.

"We played good until the goal from Firmino and after that we lost a little bit of our control", the Catalan admitted. "So we should use that".

The former fullback, victor of eight EPL and two Champions League titles, said on the Gary Neville podcast on Sky Sports: "The finishes were wonderful".

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is considered one of the most entertaining managers in the Premier League.

Klopp's side, in their first match since Philippe Coutinho left to join Barcelona, showed they still have enviable depth in attack, taking the lead in the ninth minute when Oxlade-Chamberlain marauded forward and thundered a shot past City stopper Ederson.

"The reality is we lose the game, we have a week to recover and prepare for the Newcastle game". They set the tone for how you could play against Man City if you've got that energy and ability to know how to press. It was an unbelievable match to play in.
