Few were anticipating a Liverpool win at the Etihad. Even fewer thought they would have victory all but wrapped up just after the half-hour mark

By the time Roberto Firmino opened his Reds account in the 32nd minute, adding to an Eliaquim Mangala own goal and Philippe Coutinho’s composed second, the visitors were out of sight.

Sergio Aguero pulled one back before half-time but Manchester City were unable to produce a second-half comeback and missed out on the chance to reclaim top spot in the Premier League, and Martin Skrtel clinched victory for Liverpool late on.

Naturally, much of the praise on Twitter came the way of Jurgen Klopp.

While people were quick to point out that his predecessor was unlikely to ever produce such a performance from his players.

Raheem Sterling had an evening to forget against his former club.

But he wasn’t the only one to struggle.

Liverpool fans were delighted for Firmino, who already seems to be kicking into gear under his new manager.

While the visitors’ fourth goal brought a mixture of pride and shock.

The win takes Liverpool level on points with Everton, who beat Aston Villa 4-0 earlier in the day, and you can tell the fans were delighted.
