expectations were huge. The best team in Europe against the best team in the world. The Jürgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola have said, at least on the respective opponent. The proof of this extraordinary quality could Manchester City and Liverpool FC in the top match of the Premier League on Thursday evening but only partially to provide. The huge expectations were not fulfilled in the duel, even if by the 2:1-victory of the City – the first League defeat of Liverpool this season – the championship is again open.
It was quite an entertaining game – intense, two-fight stresses the competitive and fast. Both teams were at times even the opponent goalkeeper is aggressive, let the enemy no time, piled on the pressure, tried to quickly switch. Klopp called this style in his Dortmund time to time as a "Heavy Metal football". But the Problem is: When both Teams are pressing against the Ball so consistently and excelling, the game elements are often on the track. Just in the beginning phase of Liverpool and City forced so many errors that the Ball landed more often in the stands than in the box. Quick, precise attacks, such as in front of the pole hits of Liverpool's Sadio Mané were the exception, and the quality could not keep up in the game with the Ball, inevitably, with the quality in the game against the Ball.More about

Although the game better, football Highlights, such as they City with the typical Guardiola's passing game, and Liverpool, with Klopp's fast-switching have shown in the football so often, there were but rarely. Bored of the duel, therefore, was not, and sometimes would do the football but also a little less focus on the destruction of the enemy's actions, and more concentration on your game. Because football is not only the intensity and Pressing, but also possession of the ball, creativity, and Yes, sometimes even art. The arrived on Thursday, unfortunately, too short.
