Liverpool Fans Loved Mo Salah's Conversation With Aymeric Laporte At Half Time

Mo Salah and Liverpool blew Manchester City away in the first half of their Champions League quarter final on Wednesday night and all but ended the tie and the Egyptian was even remorseful about how much better they were.

All season Manchester City have been running roughshod over everyone. There's been the odd bump in the road like the 0-0 with Crystal Palace and the FA Cup loss to Wigan but it's been a struggle for most sides to get in their way.

Bet the City defence wish they'd given Salah one of these last night:


Jurgen Klopp though seems to be somewhat of a bad luck charm for Pep Guardiola, the German has the wood over his Spanish rival. The Reds have the only Premier League win against City so far this season and that gave Klopp a 6-5-1 record against Guardiola.

So when the draw for the Champions League quarter final put the two together once again Klopp would have been one of the few managers actually happy to his side up against City.

However not even the former Borussia Dortmund manager would have expected to see his side 3-0 up at half time after a 19 minute salvo. It was all kicked off by Mo Salah's goal and the forward was causing all sorts of issues for City's defence, so much so he even apologised to Aymeric Laporte at half time!

I mean Salah did pretty much end the former Athletic Bilbao defender's career last night. It pretty much reminded me of this moment in history, only Salah didn't then kick Laporte's teeth down his throat.

Salah had to go off injured in the second half and City did at least manage to stem the tide, although they were unable to grab a goal back, and they still have a slim chance of going through in the second leg.

Guardiola will be hoping that his side can replicate their 5-0 home win against the Reds from the beginning of the season. Klopp might be the only person who he wishes he could play City more often.
