Mohammed Salah and Roberto Firmino were on target as Liverpool won 2-1 at Etihad in the Champions League quarter-final 2nd leg to go through 5-1 on aggregate.
Man City could not have made a better start after Gabriel Jesus swept home Raheem Sterling’s cross after Virgil van Dijk gave away possession.
And City were unlucky not to make it two just before the break when Bernardo Silva’s fine strike hit the post, while they were then denied what looked like a good goal from Leroy Sane by the linesman’s flag.
That prompted an angry reaction from Pep Guardiola at half-time and the City boss was sent to the stands by referee Antonio Miguel Mateu Lahoz.
The tie was effectively over, however, with 56 minutes on the clock when the returning Mo Salah produced a cool finish over Ederson to give the Reds a 4-1 aggregate lead and a hugely important away goal.
