Loads of Liverpool fans have been running the rule over the weekend’s action, and they’re fuming at how easily Southampton rolled over for Manchester City.
Liverpool have had their joint-ever best start to a Premier League season, but the Reds are not even top of the table due to the incredible form of their title rivals.
Chelsea moved above them on goal difference after their win over Crystal Palace, but it’s Manchester City that look truly unstoppable.
Much like how teams would play at Old Trafford when Sir Alex Ferguson was in charge, Premier League teams now arrive at the Etihad expecting to lose by several goals.
Mark Hughes’ Southampton were on the end of a 6-1 mauling on Sunday, and it’s no less than they deserved after some truly horrific defending.
One clip in particular has annoyed Liverpool fans, as the Saints’ defenders seemed to just chase around aimlessly as the Cityzens knocked the ball around in their opponent’s penalty box.

Southampton should be embarrassed. That’s not Premier League standard, that’s absolutely woeful. https://t.co/oi2IkJWrC8

Managed by the same guy who led Stoke to a 7-2 defeat against City last season
