Liverpool vs Man City: Ruben Dias moves Oleksandr Zinchenko at free-kick

  • Rob Swan

Liverpool and Manchester City failed to break the deadlock during the first half of their eagerly anticipated Premier League clash at Anfield.

Ilkay Gundogan spurned the best opportunity when he blazed over from the penalty spot in the 37th minute.

Raheem Sterling won the spot-kick when he was fouled inside the box by Fabinho but Gundogan blazed his effort into the Kop.

Prior to that, Liverpool were presented with two decent opportunities to score the game’s first goal.

Sadio Mane missed the first clear-cut chance, heading over from a Trent Alexander-Arnold cross in the 23rd minute.

Roberto Firmino then forced a save from City goalkeeper Ederson shortly afterwards.

However, it was another incident which caught the eye of football fans on social media.


While City were defending a Liverpool free-kick, Ruben Dias was spotted moving teammate Oleksandr Zinchenko, who was lying prone behind the wall, by the head.

Rather than asking Zinchenko to budge up a little, Dias clearly felt the easiest way was to move the Ukraine international himself.
