Piers Morgan bemoaned Arsenal’s failure to appoint Jurgen Klopp as Arsene Wenger’s replacement after Liverpool FC became the first Premier League team to beat Manchester City in a 4-3 win at Anfield.

The Reds were looking to end Manchester City’s 22-game unbeaten streak and exact revenge for their 5-0 loss to the Citizens at The Etihad back in September.

Liverpool FC opened the scoring in the ninth minute when summer signing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain placed a precise finish past Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson.

The runaway Premier League leaders were level before half-time when Germany international Leroy Sane managed to beat Loris Karius at his near post to undo Liverpool FC’s good work in opening 45 minutes.

Liverpool FC seized the lead midway through the second half when Roberto Firmino’s chipped goal gave the hosts a 2-1 lead before Sadio Mane’s powerful finish left Ederson with no chance in the Manchester City net.

Mohamed Salah netted his 18th Premier League goal of the season to make it 4-1 from long range before late efforts from Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan ensured it was a nerve wracking final 10 minutes.

Earlier on Sunday, Arsenal lost 2-1 to Bournemouth on the south coast to leave the Gunners eight points behind Liverpool FC.

And outspoken Gunners fan Morgan was left to rue Arsenal’s failure to appoint Klopp when the German quit Borussia Dortmund in 2015.

Morgan wrote on Twitter: “So when, for 2 years, I said Arsenal should sign Jurgen Klopp, THIS is why. #LFCVCITY”
