We’ve got to move on – Henderson, after Man City wallop

Henderson

Liverpool Captain, Jordan Henderson, has condeded that the team is in a difficult moment.

“We competed well. This was more like the performance we are used to, but mistakes at the wrong moments cost us,” he said after Man City walopped them 4-1 on Sunday.

“It is hard to take now, but in football you have to move on quickly. We need to use this week to prepare the best we can for a tough game with Leicester City.”

According to NAN, Man City, now clearly leading, yet have more in their Favour, with a game in hand.

Ilkay Guendogan scored twice while Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden got the others as Manchester City won at Anfield for the first time since 2003 with their 10th straight league win.

Manchester City have now matched the all-time winning run by an English top-flight side in all competitions, winning their last 14 matches.

It was the same number as Preston North End in 1892 and Arsenal in 1987, according to statisticians Opta.

“It gives us every chance to go on and win it (the league) now,” Foden said.

“The job’s not done, we need to keep going. When you beat the champions, everyone’s confidence is going to be sky high now. So, it can only help us. We’re just happy to win today.”

Liverpool remain fourth —- 10 points behind Manchester City —- while the result gave them a third straight home defeat for the first time since 1963.

Manchester City dominated possession early on and should have taken the lead in the first half, only for Guendogan to sky a penalty kick over the bar.

The Germany midfielder made amends with the opening goal four minutes into the second half.

But Mo Salah equalised from the penalty kick spot after he was fouled by Ruben Dias.

Two mistakes from goalkeeper Alisson took the match away from Liverpool.

First, Guendogan side-footed home from two yards, and then Sterling headed home from close-range for his 100th goal under Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.

Foden then smashed a fourth straight through Alisson to give Manchester City victory and open up a big gap at the top.
