Mane off as City thrash Liverpool

Manchester City moved to the top of the Premier League after a comprehensive 5-0 win over 10-man Liverpool, who had Sadio Mane sent off in the first half.  Sergio Aguero gave City the lead in the 24th minute before Liverpool were reduced to 10 men after Mane's high boot caught Ederson - who was stretchered from the field - in the jaw (37).

Gabriel Jesus (45+6, 53) extended the hosts' advantage either side of the break before substitute Leroy Sane rounded off the scoring with a late double (77, 90+1) as City inflicted Liverpool's first defeat of the season - their biggest under Jurgen Klopp in all competitions.
