FA Cup: Man City weren’t alive – Martin Keown reacts as Liverpool beat Guardiola’s side 3-2
Former Arsenal and England defender Martin Keown has said that Manchester City were not alive during their 3-2 loss to Liverpool in the FA Cup semi-final on Saturday.
Ibrahima Konate put Jurgen Klopp’s side ahead in under nine minutes and Manchester City’s No. 2 goalkeeper Steffen then made a terrible error to gift Liverpool a second.
Mane made it 3-0 before half-time with a sweet strike following a superb move from Liverpool.
Jack Grealish got a goal back for City just after the restart and Bernardo Silva netted a consolation goal in injury time.
Keown said: “It’s always a treat when these two sides play.
“City just left themselves too much to do – credit them for the second half, much better – but Liverpool were in a world of their own in their first half. Their performance in that first half was just too good for City.”
