The match between Manchester City and Liverpool at The Etihad today at the top of the Premier League was entertaining
Mo Salah’s goals and Julian Alvarez’s fine equalizer in a standout first half demonstrated just how good both teams are capable of being.

Wow. Just wow. Absolutely top-notch. finishing indifference. If he keeps producing goals like that, I’ll have to interview him more frequently,” Ferdinand said on BT Sport.
Liverpool’s slender chances of winning the Champions League depend on Salah. Therefore, as the season comes to a close, Jurgen Klopp will be hoping for more of the same from the Egyptian.

As Ferdinand notes, Salah’s finish was of world-class quality. The Liverpool player pounced on the ball and slammed it past Ederson without hesitation.
For Liverpool, Salah has accomplished this so frequently over the years. It therefore came as no real surprise to see him do it today against City.
On Salah, Liverpool is so dependent. While the size of the contract he received during Sadio Mane’s departure received a lot of attention, it is crystal clear why Jurgen Klopp wanted to keep his star player so badly.
