I agree. Some of the commentary on the game I have seen is astounding. One piece claimed both sides played so poorly neither will ever have as good a chance of beating a rival as that. What? I think maybe just because of the identity of the sides and the football they are associated with the quality of the defensive play of both sides was down played. What I thought was remarkable was how good Bernardo Silva was in a deeper and central position. It's one thing to have adapted to the more central position in De Bruyne's absence from an attacking perspective. But that was a proper midfield performance yesterday.Nothing, just keep going and it'll click at some point. Shaqiri or Sturridge from the start against the weaker sides may help though.
Today City defended as well as I've seen any team defend at Anfield for as long as I can remember, that was a masterclass.
