Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has described his side's all-round performance against Liverpool at the Etihad as unbelievable.
Jurgen Klopp's men ran riot at the Etihad as they smacked the Citizens by 4-1 courtesy of goals from Coutinho, Firmino, Skrtel, and an own goal from Mangala. City's only goal came from Sergio Aguero.
"The performance was unbelievable. We have difficulty in understanding why we played so badly as a complete team. Defending, attacking, possession - I've never seen this team play like we did tonight," Pellegrini said, mcfc.co.uk reports.
"We didn't create chances we concede four goals we could have conceded three or four more. It's difficult to understand.
"We need to turn the page as soon as we can. This performance is not normal, we all must think what will happen in the future, we have an important game on Wednesday, sometimes it happens in football to play like this."
City will be hoping to bounce to winning ways when they face Serie A champions Juventus in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.
