Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has lauded the performance of one Reds star during the side's 1-0 win over Man City on Sunday.
The Premier League clash saw Liverpool attempting to get back on track against a side that were yet to lose a domestic league match so far this season.
Pep Guardiola's side came to Anfield as heavy favourites, even though the hosts had not lost a league match at home since March 2021.
It was a high-octane encounter filled with notable moments. Phil Foden put City ahead early in the second half, but the goal was ruled out. VAR deemed that Erling Haaland had fouled Liverpool's Fabinho in the build-up.
The decision seemed to put a spring in the step of the hosts, and Mohamed Salah gave them the lead on 76 minutes with one of the individual goals of the season.
Liverpool had to deal with increased City pressure towards the end, but held on to record a crucial victory.
After the match, Klopp revealed the player he believed was "sensational" throughout the 90 minutes at Anfield.

"He was sensational, a mature performance together with Virgil and the two full-backs."
He formed a partnership with right-back James Milner in defence, with the pairing, alongside fellow defenders Virgil van Dijk and Andrew Robertson, a key reason behind Liverpool picking up three points.
In addition, Gomez received the Player of the Match award by Sky Sports.
