Manchester City took advantage of Sadio Mane's controversial sending-off to thrash Liverpool 5-0 in an eventful Premier League clash at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

Sergio Aguero put Manchester City ahead, and then a challenge from Sadio Mane with Ederson for the ball was to prove the biggest talking point afterwards.

Danny Welbeck struck twice as Arsenal eased to victory over Bournemouth to get their Premier League campaign back on track.

"I don't think they'd have won with 11 men, the way City were playing it would have been a tough afternoon for them, but you've got to be anxious about how Liverpool defend".

"We don't want to underestimate this, it looks bad and Ederson was lucky nothing more serious happened in this situation".

On Saturday, it was not finishing their chances that game Liverpool the problem, as they had the run of play and the game's best chance to score in the early going when Salah was sent clear.

Prior to the FA's ruling, former Liverpool captain Graeme Souness had argued Mane's red card was punishment enough and that no ban was required. "They make the pitch big, that is a quality of them and it is hard for the other teams". But can we play better against City with one man down?

Mane was subsequently given his marching orders by referee Jon Moss, though fans and pundits alike were immediately divided over whether the decision was the correct one or not. Everyone is in agreement that he very clearly had his eyes firmly on the ball and made an honest attempt to poke it past the on-rushing keeper, however this doesn't just make it a yellow card.

"I prefer having a group of good goalkeepers, and that means you have to change things", said Klopp.

"Things like this happen". He didn't see him but the impact was hard. I'm really sorry that it has been touched during our accidental shock on the ground and that he was not able to finish the match because of it.
