Jurgen Klopp running away from Pep Guardiola day after Liverpool 3-1 Man City in 2019 is pure gold


Liverpool's 3-1 win against Pep Guardiola's Manchester City on November 10, 2019 was an important result in the run to the Premier League title for Jurgen Klopp's side.

The Reds opened up an eight-point gap at the top of the table with a convincing win over the reigning champions.

Liverpool cruised into an early lead thanks to goals from Fabinho and Mohamed Salah, stunning Guardiola's men.

Liverpool's huge win vs City

Sadio Mane headed home the Reds' third in the 51st minute, before Bernardo Silva pulled one back with 12 minutes to go.

Guardiola was furious at full-time. Enraged with some decisions that went against his side - including a handball claim against Trent Alexander-Arnold before Liverpool's first goal that was rejected - the City boss sarcastically thanked referee Michael Oliver at the final whistle.


The outcome of the game at Anfield was decisive. A message was sent to Man City on that day, and Liverpool never looked back.

Then ended up finishing 18 points ahead of Guardiola's side as they marched to a first league title in 30 years.

Klopp and Guardiola met the next day

As fate would have it, Klopp and Guardiola met the following day at UEFA's Elite Club Coaches Forum in Switzerland.

Whoever arranged for the summit to be held a day after Klopp and Guardiola went head-to-head is a genius, because it set the stage for a comical moment between the two managers.

Klopp runs away from Pep

Klopp was speaking to the press when he spotted the City boss coming around the corner.

The German whispered, "Pep Guardiola is coming!" before playfully running away.

Very funny stuff from Klopp.

Sky Sports' video of the moment quickly went viral on Twitter, attracting more than 3,000 retweets and over 2 million views.


By this point in Klopp's Liverpool tenure, he had already established himself as a beloved character among the club's fans after leading them to Champions League glory the previous season.

And, based on his jovial mood the following day, you get the sense that he knew Liverpool had one hand on the Premier League trophy after defeating Man City.
