The English Premier League got going again on Saturday afternoon with a cracker of size. For example, defending champion Manchester City received a visit from the reigning vice-champion Liverpool FC. And Kevin De Bruyne once again managed to claim a leading role.
Both teams were under quite a bit of pressure for the top match at the Etihad Stadium. Liverpool desperately needed the points to keep their chances of the top 4 intact, City wanted to prevent leader Arsenal from running further later in the day. However, it was the visitors who were able to strike first through Mohamed Salah.
But City were by far the better team and were able to level again before the break with a goal from Julian Alvarez. Shortly after the break, De Bruyne thought his moment had come. The Red Devil, who excelled in the practice pot against Germany on Tuesday, was in the right place to tap in a handsome counter.
Furthermore, KDB also played a more than decent game in midfield, so he had a foot in almost every dangerous situation. And the Belgian playmaker’s goal seemed to have a liberating effect. Not much later, Ilkay Gündogan was able to double the lead.
