Gary Lineker reflected on some disastrous Manchester City defender after Liverpool FC ended the Premier League leaders’ unbeaten run with a 4-3 victory at Anfield.

The Merseyside outfit made the breakthrough in the ninth minute thanks to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s precise finish from outside the penalty area.

Manchester City were level on the stroke of half-time thanks to Leroy Sane’s close-range finish to beat his compatriot Loris Karius at the near post.

The Citizens appeared to be getting a stranglehold on the Premier League clash before Roberto Firmino showed the strength to outmuscle John Stones before he produced a delicate chip over Ederson.

Mane made amends for his sending off at the Etihad Stadium back in September with a powerful finish into the roof of Manchester City’s net to put clear daylight between themselves and the leaders.

Ederson’s poor clearance fell into the path of Mohamed Salah and the Egypt international scored from just inside Liverpool’s half to put the result beyond doubt and end Manchester City’s 22-game unbeaten run.

Former Spurs forward Lineker reacted to Liverpool FC’s stunning win over Manchester City to lay down a marker in the title race.

Lineker wrote on Twitter: “Wow. 2 goals in 2 minutes for Liverpool. Huge error from Otamendi, sensationally struck by Mane.”

Late goals from Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan cast doubt on Liverpool FC’s win before the Reds held on despite late pressure.

Lineker wasn’t convinced and the England legend added on social media: “Relax, Liverpool never give away 3 goal leads. 😬”

Liverpool FC are three points clear of fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur in the table.
