Liverpool's Capitulation

On September 09, 2017, I was red with anger and which swiftly turned blue with depression when Manchester City thrashed 10-man Liverpool 5-0 as the former sent out an ominous message of intent to their EPL title rivals. 

Liverpool were already trailing to Sergio Aguero's cool finish in the twenty-fourth minute when Sadio Mane was sent off eight minutes before half-time for a high challenge on keeper Ederson. 

Manchester City wasted no time to use their numerical advantage – and they added a second through Gabriel Jesus's header (45+6). Aguero set up Jesus for his second in the fifty-third minute before substitute Leroy Sane added two late goals (77, 90+1) to give their team their biggest win over Liverpool since 1937! 

The Reds just folded dramatically in the second half. 

And a first defeat of the season for Jurgen Klopp's men. A painful defeat.
