Liverpool Thrash City 3-0 In Champions League First Leg

Liverpool took control of their Champions League quarter-final tie with a stunning first-leg 3-0 victory over Manchester City at Anfield.

Mohamed Salah set the hosts on their way in an incredible opening half an hour with a cool close-range finish, BBC reports.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain then thumped home from outside the area before Sadio Mane headed in a third.

Manchester City dominated after the break and Gabriel Jesus had the ball in the net but it was ruled offside.

Pep Guardiola’s men have swept aside so many teams this season, with very few finding a way to counter their dominance on the ball and their devastating quality in attack.

Most attempt to contain them but Liverpool got at Manchester City from the off and immediately had the visitors rattled.

City did not manage a single attempt on target in a first half Liverpool completely controlled but came into it more as the hosts, who lost Salah to injury, tired in the second period.
