Liverpool, United Kingdom-Liverpool managed to defeat Manchester City on January 14th in a 7-goal game, ending the “Citizens” 22-game undefeated streak. Coming from a couple of hard-fought 2-1 victories over Leicester City and Burnley, Liverpool were capable to achieve an upset, defeating the English Premier League’s leader. Though Liverpool had a comfortable 4-1 lead, the final minutes were stressful as Manchester City managed to pull back two goals. Regardless, Liverpool were capable to hold out and get the win.

When asked how he felt about result, Mr. Somerville, Haynes college counselor and Liverpool fan, said, “Let me just state that if I was told tomorrow that I had 3 minutes to live…I would be quite happy using my last three minutes watching the highlights of that game. It was an advertisement for how fantastic football is but also how exciting it is to watch Liverpool and the way they play.” Comments like his illustrate the variety of emotions evoked by sports.

Even though Liverpool had a 4-1 lead for the majority of the second half, Manchester City was capable to get two goals back.

“I was in parts jumping across the room screaming at the TV and then spent the last three minutes with my T-Shirt over my head because I couldn’t handle the drama of a Man City comeback,” said Mr. Somerville.   
Liverpool’s stunning performance against Manchester City also generated responses from a wide variety of people, including Liverpool’s manager, Jürgen Klopp.

“This was a historical game you will talk about in 20 years because it looks like City will not lose another one this year,” Klopp told reporters, when asked how he felt about the game. Klopp had tried the very same strategy in their previous game against Manchester City and had ended with a 5-0 defeat. Because of the win, he was ecstatic.

Not every reaction was happy, though. “Football is unpredictable. You lose today against a fantastic team. You have to be sure to win the next one and fight until the end to win the Premier League. I would have preferred to win today,” said Manchester City’s manager, Pep Guardiola, bittersweetly. Still, Guardiola was not discouraged.

“To lose is never good news, but all the teams lose games. Why can we not lose games? It is important not to lose again. Most important is the next one. Newcastle is so, so important,” Guardiola said.

Regardless, Manchester City’s unbeaten run has ended. They will no longer be able to match Arsenal’s 2004 record of a whole season undefeated.
