Leroy Sane’s whipped shot ending Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool unbeaten run in the Premier League as the Sky Blues move four points closer their title rivals.
City took the lead at the Etihad when striker Agüero found the back of the net, beating Alisson with a rasping shot, before Reds levelled through Roberto Firmino.
Sane’s killed the game when he struck in the final 20 minutes of the game to put the Champions back in the picture for the title.
Raheem Sterling had taken an earlier swipe about the game against Liverpool, and was confident of a win.
But boss Jurgen Klopp was not impressed and felt aggrieved after his 2-1 defeat at Manchester City.
Jurgen Klopp was incensed after a rough clip by Vincent Kompany on forward Mohammed Salah fell the star. Klopp felt it should have been the end of the night for Kompany.
“I really like Vincent Kompany,” the German began in his Sky post-match interview, “But how on Earth is that not a red card?
“He is last man and he goes in. If he hits Mo [Salah] more he is out for the season.
“It is not easy for the ref and he may not see it how I see it.”
Kompany however seemed unaffected by moots saying he should have been shown a red and wore a grin, saying he thought it was a good challenge and was ready to take the dive.
