Coach Pep Guardiola chose a very offensive formation, with Sané, Sterling and Jesus is in the offensive sector, supported by De Bruyne and Silva. Furthermore, Guardiola is still the recovered Agüero behind the hand, Kompany went to the bank. The Spaniard was hoping for a fast start and got what he asked for. The clock had barely two laps made when Sterling are spitsbroeder Jesus vrijspeelde. The Brazilian had no problem to Karius for the first time to floors. A droomstart for De Bruyne and co. City smelled blood and went full-on in the direction of Karius. Leroy Sané turned out to be a scourge for the Liverpool defence, and De Bruyne showed occasional flashes of great class. Just before the peace came the opportunity again. A goal by Sané was disallowed for offside, a shot from Bernardo Silva licked the pole. The visitors were hardly anything compared to.
