Beating Man City is a big statement - Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp called Liverpool's historical 4-3 victory over Manchester City a big statement.
Liverpool inflicted City's first domestic defeat of the season when prevailing in an enthralling encounter at Anfield on Nissan Super Sunday .

A devastating nine-minute spell saw Liverpool score three goals to take a 4-1 lead in the second half, and though City struck back late on, the Reds held on to move up to third in the Premier League table.

Klopp was gushing in his praise of both sides, adding that the game could be City's only league defeat of the season.

He said "Nice and boring! I think that's a game which proves why many people love this game. That is football. That's how football can look if two teams combine quality and skills with attitude. Then it's possible. We were not gambling, but with our counter-attacks we thought, 'We can score the fifth one'. Even if you are with all your own players in the box, they can create chances. We were never safe. But I am completely happy because I think it's a fair result. Maybe when you look back at the end of the season, or in 10 years, you will say it's historical because it could be the only defeat for Man City. They are a really good side and I am really proud of my side that we could perform here."
