Ilkay Gundogan provided the dictionary definition on Sunday for Manchester City against Liverpool.

The Germany international was the subject a heavy challenge inside the first two minutes, blazed a penalty way over the bar just before half-time before scoring twice in Manchester City’s 4-1 victory at Anfield.

After Gundogan scored the opener just after the half-time break, Mohamed Salah briefly had the reigning Premier League champions level, converting from the penalty spot, before Gundogan’s second of the game once again gave City the lead.

Raheem Sterling and the excellent Phil Foden wrapped up the result, which took Pep Guardiola’s side four points clear at the top of the table with a game in hand over Manchester United in second.

“I need to admit that missing a penalty is always a bad thing, especially early in the game,” Gundogan told the BBC afterwards. “There’s always a danger of dropping confidence but after I missed, I just tried to do the simple things as well as possible.

“Don’t get distracted by the penalty and try to keep going and help my team to win. It worked out well. Maybe I was lucky to be in the right places but I always try to be there when I smell the danger in front of goal. Happy about the goals, relieved but much happier about the result and the way we played.”

“[The title is] not ours yet, we need to stay humble, we know we need to put out performances like that out every single game. Doesn’t matter whether it’s Liverpool away or Sheffield United at home, even that game was so tight and close. Every game has its own character and challenges but we need to keep going every game is important, it could be a very good season for us.”
