Liverpool may have lost but Emre Can did pull off the most audacious skill in the match when he scored a cheeky panenka.
Unfortunately the Reds missed all their following penalties while City scored every penalty except the first spot kick.
We took a look at the reaction Can received after the game. For those who missed the penance here it is.
Even Chelsea fans were pretty impressed.
Can’s penalty transcended sports with Horse racing legend AP McCoy praising the ‘bottle’ shown by the young midfielder.
West Ham fans were also gave Can credit for the panenka.
Meanwhile Turkish followers put down his decision to attempt a panenka down to his heritage. Can is one of three ethnic Turks in the Germany national team with the others being Mesut Özil and İlkay Gündoğan.
Other fans put it down to his German training – as we all know German’s do not miss penalties.
Some fans went as far to state that Jurgen Klopp should be considering him as future captain material.
