InternationalMohammad Salah is back with bang, downs Manchester City

Srinagar: Egyptian ‘King’ Mohammad Salah silenced his critics as he produced a moment of brilliance as Liverpool FC beat high flying Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday.

The 76th minute strike by Salah sealed a 1-0 win after a crackling contest at Anfield and leaves champions City four points behind the Arsenal, who won by the same scoreline at Leeds.

Liverpool and City could not be separated in the first half at Anfield but the game caught fire after the break.

Jurgen Klopp’s team had a glorious chance to take the lead early in the second half when Salah broke clear on goal but Ederson managed to get a faint touch to tip his shot wide.

City thought they had snatched the lead moments later through Phil Foden but VAR spotted a foul by Erling Haaland on Fabinho in the build-up and the goal was disallowed.

Instead it was Liverpool who struck, with Salah spinning past Joao Cancelo on the halfway line as the pair challenged for an Alisson clearance and racing away to fire beyond Ederson.

The game became heated in the closing stages and referee Anthony Taylor sent Klopp to the stands for the German’s angry reaction to a perceived injustice.
