Liverpool FC's win over Manchester City FC a statement, says Klopp

Reigning African Best Player and Egypt's forward, Mohamed Salah, alongside Senegal's Sadio Mane, was on target as Liverpool ended Manchester City's unbeaten run at Anfield on Sunday.

City still top the league table on 62 points, 15 points ahead of Manchester United in second place, while Liverpool are now third on 47 points.

During the post-match interview following Liverpool's exciting, and yet nervous, 4-3 win over Manchester City at Anfield, the German couldn't contain the drama and said in relation to the contest, "What the F*** was that!".

The game continued at the same frantic pace after the break with chances for both sides before Liverpool, in one of the most irresistible attacking displays of the season, scored three times in nine blistering minutes.

"We knew we had what it took if we were 100 per cent at the races to get three points today".

It was City's first league defeat, after enjoying a remarkable 22-game unbeaten run. He played with real confidence and quality, capping his all-action display with a sizzling opener.

City have managed all season to play brilliant football and score lots of goals while being defensively sound too.

Klopp was slightly more composed in the press conference, but still made clear his joy at Liverpool's performance.

"You can have a look at this game in different ways", he said.

Goal, in a big game, against the Premier League leaders - doesn't get much better than that. You can see what they can do.

And after a four-letter slip-up during an interview with United States outlet NBC, leading Klopp to joke he "thought in America it was OK (to swear)", the German told BBC Sport: "You can watch it as a manager or as a football fan and I prefer to do that - wow!"

"The game was in our hands at 1-1 but our finishing was not good and then it went suddenly to 4-1. I really loved it", he added. Especially second half we played pressing from another planet, they looked really insecure.

"The wind made it a bit tricky here and there - the first goal we conceded, the fourth goal they conceded the influence of the wind was quite obviously".

In the 40th minute, City's midfielder Leroy Sane translated his team dominance and scored a lovely goal to level the score to 1-1.
