Michael Owen has heaped praise on the Liverpool players after Wednesday night’s emphatic 3-0 win against Manchester City.
The Reds broke the deadlock in the 34th minute after Adam Lallana’s long-range strike crept past England No1 Joe Hart at Anfield.
James Milner doubled the home side’s advantage before half-time and Roberto Firmino added a third in the 57th minute to seal three points.
Liverpool lost to City on penalties in Sunday’s League Cup final but Wednesday’s win lifts the 18-time English champions up to eighth place.
Former Reds striker Owen hailed six of Jurgen Klopp’s player for their performance against the League Cup winners on Wednesday night.
Great performance by Liverpool. Joy to watch at times. Too aggressive for City to handle. Lallana, Milner, Can, Firminho, Toure, Flanagan 👍🏽
