The Reds took a big step towards booking their place in the semi-finals of Europe’s elite club competition by claiming a dominant 3-0 victory against the Citizens at Anfield.
Mohamed Salah netted the opening goal for the Reds in the 12th minute with a neat finish, before Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain made it 2-0 to the hosts with a superb long-range strike.
Sadio Mane then put the Reds firmly in control of the tie by heading home a third goal in the 31st minute to give Jurgen Klopp’s men a huge advantage heading into the return leg at The Etihad on Tuesday next week.
Former Arsenal star Dixon believes that Manchester City will be confident they can score three goals against the Reds, but feels that Liverpool FC are more than capable of netting an away goal, which would leave the Citizens needing to net five to progress.
Speaking to ITV Sport on Wednesday night, Dixon said: “Man City are capable of beating Liverpool 3-0.
“[But] given that Liverpool have those three up front, you’d expect them to score a goal.”
Liverpool FC are now focusing back on Premier League affairs and their trip to Everton on Saturday lunchtime.
