Klopp laments Mane's red card

Liverpool were reduced to 10 men when Sadio Mane was sent off in the first half but, their lack of numbers notwithstanding, they could not cope with the potency of the City front line. The hosts then took a firm grip after Mane's dismissal.

Sergio Aguero and doubles from Gabriel Jesus and Leroy Sane would compound Liverpool's afternoon.

Liverpool are next in action on Wednesday when they open their Champions League group stage campaign at home to Sevilla, before welcoming Burnley to Anfield in domestic competition next weekend. I will have the situation all the time now over the next three or four weeks. What a fright! It was an important win for us.

"We have to take the first 20 minutes and how we played before the global break and take it into the next game", Mignolet said. "I don't know if it is red card or not", said the City boss. "There are plenty of things we can learn from this game".

Manchester City playmaker Kevin de Bruyne says beating the club's biggest rivals will be key to challenging for the Premier League title after Pep Guardiola's side swept Liverpool aside in impressive style. "I just have no faith with Jurgen Klopp in charge", he lamented.

The general impression was that he didn't think there was too much to read into the game, though, as he said he will try to "ignore the result" since "one man down against City, it is really not the best place to be". Both teams were not compact. "We've scored a lot of goals already so far in this season and the players on the pitch have played the kinds of passes Phil can play".

"City is very offensive-oriented and we are very offensive-oriented".

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

De Bruyne, in comments published by the British press on Monday, said: "The guys who have come in have a very physical quality, they are very strong, very pacy".

"In that period, City looked vulnerable defensively but they looked outstanding going forward, with a better forward line than a year ago". We had our chances in the first half and we were maximum 60%.
