Man City 2-3 Liverpool Highlights

Published

Liverpool endured a last-heave fightback from title rivals Manchester City to seal their place in the following month’s FA Cup Final and keep any desires for an uncommon fourfold alive at Wembley.

Jurgen Klopp’s brilliant Reds inflicted all their damage in a thoroughly one-sided first half in the second dramatic meeting between English football’s two leading clubs in six days, with centre-back Ibrahima Konate rising highest to power home his third goal in as many matches from an Andy Robertson corner inside 10 minutes.

Man of the match Sadio Mane then notched a decisive brace, first sliding in to double the advantage after a dreadful error from City goalkeeper Zack Steffen, starting in place of usual No1 Ederson – who escaped from a similar situation in last weekend’s pulsating 2-2 Premier League draw at the Etihad Stadium.

Tuchel said: “Timo was injured. He felt uncomfortable in the warm up and said he cannot play.

“Kai did a last test. He did not train because of his hamstring.

“We tried everything and did the last test in the morning, but it was not better.”

Alisson Becker and Kostas Tsimikas were the spot-kick heroes as Liverpool secured a 6-5 penalty shoot-out triumph against Chelsea to win the FA Cup and keep their quest for an unprecedent quadruple alive.

Just 76 days after the Reds edged past Thomas Tuchel’s men on penalties following a scoreless Carabao Cup final, Wembley witnessed another gripping clash between these sides that went down to the wire.

Nothing could split them after 90 minutes and extra time again, despite Luis Diaz going close on several occasions. Marcos Alonso was denied by the bar for Chelsea, while Andy Roberson missed a couple of big chances for Liverpool.

Edouard Mendy prevented Sadio Mane striking the winner after Cesar Azpilicueta had hit the post, only for Alisson to keep Mason Mount’s penalty out. That set the stage for Kostas Tsimikas, who made no mistake to send his teammates and Jurgen Klopp charging up the pitch to celebrate with him.
