Sergio Aguero was the man to open the scoring in the first-half after beating Dejan Lovren to the ball and then rifling past Alisson Becker.

The Reds managed to find a response with Roberto Firmino netting his tenth goal of the season.

However, Leroy Sane produced the match-winning moment as expertly scored across goal to secure the win.
