The big hit of the English Premier League between Liverpool and Manchester City yesterday surpassed the already high expectations. Thanks to a 3: 1 (2: 0) win, Liverpool's lead to second-placed Leicester is already eight points, and fourth-placed Manchester City's nine points. Liverpool pulls the competition on and off.
The game could not have run better for the Reds: After just six minutes Fabinho brought the hosts 1-0 lead. The hit, however, was highly controversial: Before the attack, there had been a hand game of a Liverpool player in his own penalty area. The City players complained penalty, the ball was also on the hand, but this was not considered punishable ̵
As is common in England, the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) is rarely used to change decisions taken. So Liverpool claimed a foul in vain as Bernardo Silva shortened to 1: 3 (78th). A short time later Manchester City wanted a penalty, referee Michael Oliver also did not give. Although the ball was in the hands of the Liverpool player, the first decision was also here after the VAR control stand.

"
The trainer quest will not be suspended, but she can calmly approach the league summit after the power explosion and then successfully conclude with a" long-term solution "that Hoeneß urged. "Until it comes to that, I think Hansi Flick is not a bad solution," commented Hoeneß.
