Mane apologises for 'accidental collision' with Ederson

Mane apologises for 'accidental collision' with Ederson”

City went on to tear apart Jurgen Klopp's side and claim a 5-0 victory and despite a debate over whether Mane should have seen red, De Bruyne thinks that the severity of Ederson's injury meant that it was warranted.

Leroy Sane came on to add gloss to the scoreline, firstly converting a neat one-two with Benjamin Mendy and then curling home a stunning goal in stoppage time.

"If City takes too much confidence from this game today, they make a mistake", Klopp said. New signing Oxlade-Chamberlain was named on the bench.

Leicester had been second best for the majority of the first half but nearly broke through with a counter-attack that brought a chance for Islam Slimani - and they were made to pay after 41 minutes when the excellent Morata headed home a Cesar Azpilicueta cross to give the Premier League champions the lead.

Harry Kane, the league's top scorer last season, is off the mark as well for the campaign. Alberto Moreno slots in at left-back, with Jordan Henderson, Emre Can and Georginio Wijnaldum looking to control midfield.

A couple of goal droughts ended.

"Sergio is insane about the goal", compatriot Nicolas Otamendi said.

It was De Bruyne's perfectly weighted pass that found Aguero's well-timed run and the Argentine opened the scoring after skipping round Liverpool keeper Simon Mignolet. "They didn't create many things", said the German manager. Mignolet denied the Brazilian's eventual effort and, indeed, John Stones' clear strike at goal from the resulting corner. "I was still positive (but) with one man down against City, it is really not the best place to be", he said.

And further disappointment was to be heaped upon the visitors before the break when Jesus headed in a close-range second for City. There is not much separating both teams right now with both having earned 7-points from their first three games.

A third for Pep Guardiola's men was quick to arrive after the break, Aguero putting the ball on a plate for Jesus to grab a brace eight minutes after a fine pass from Fernandinho in the build-up.
