GOAL!!!!! ALEXANDER-ARNOLD SCORES A BEAUTY!!!!! 1-0 LIVERPOOL!!!!!!! The Reds take a deserved lead through a fine strike from Alexander-Arnold. Thiago starts the move with a perfect switch from left to right for Salah. The forward offloads to Alexander-Arnold on the edge of the box, and he curls his strike away from Ederson into the back of the net with the aid of the left post and perhaps a slight touch off Ake.

GOAL!!!! ALVAREZ LEVELS FOR CITY!!!!! 1-1!!!!!! After a VAR check, Alvarez gets off the mark for City with a close-range finish. Foden latches on to a cross from De Bruyne and steers a strike towards the goal. Adrian saves the effort but fails to gather the rebound as Foden reacts first. He knocks it away from the Liverpool keeper before Alvarez pounces and sweeps a step into the back of the net.

GOAL!!!! SALAH CONVERTS!!!!!!!! 2-1 LIVERPOOL!!!!! Liverpool regains the lead through a crisp strike from the penalty spot by the Egypt international. Salah fires low and hard on his left foot into the bottom-right corner, finding the net despite Ederson guessing correctly with his dive.

GOAL!!!! NUNEZ SURELY WINS THE GAME FOR LIVERPOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 3-1!!!!!! The Uruguay international heads Liverpool into a 3-1 lead on his competitive bow. Robertson does well at the back post to guideSalah’ss across into the path of the forward. Nunez is on the spot six yards out and nods the ball past Ederson into the net. The perfect start forLiverpool’ss new signing.
