Ex-Liverpool man says Manchester City ‘behaved like spoilt kids’

Liverpool see off Man City

Liverpool and Manchester City went head-to-head this past weekend in a huge clash in the Premier League title race.

While City started the game on top, it would be the European champions who took an early lead through Fabinho.

Mohamed Salah then doubled Liverpool’s lead in the 13th minute.

Sadio Mane then put the result beyond doubt shortly after the interval, giving Liverpool a three-goal cushion.

Bernardo Silva pulled one back for the Sky Blues 12 minutes before time, but it was not enough to secure City any points.

Liverpool now have a commanding nine-point lead over Pep Guardiola’s men, and an eight-point gap is also open between the Reds and 2nd placed Leicester City.

Highlights: Liverpool 3-Manchester City 1

Man City like spoilt kids

Tempers were rather heated during the key clash on Sunday, with Raheem Sterling and Joe Gomez having had an altercation, as shown in the video below:

City boss Pep Guardiola also seemed rather irate after the clash, and appeared to be quite sarcastic and slightly aggressive when shaking the match officials’ hands after proceedings had drawn to a close.

In the wake of Sunday’s game, former Liverpool man John Aldridge has taken a bit of a dig at the current PL holders, stating that they behaved like spoilt kids:

“I think Manchester City are so used to getting their own way most of the time that they don’t know how to react when things go against them and they behaved like spoilt kids really.

“I understand their frustrations on the touchline because I’ve been there myself but the way Guardiola and [Mikel] Arteta were carrying on, as well as Sterling and [Kyle] Walker, it was like watching dummies being thrown out of the pram.

“No-one likes getting beaten but there’s a way to win and a way to lose and, particularly with the eyes of the world on Anfield for a match of this magnitude, City really didn’t do themselves any favours.” As quoted by the Mirror.
