Nabil Fekir showed Liverpool what they missed out on as he put Manchester City to the sword in the Champions League.
The Frenchman was on his way to Anfield in a £53m deal this summer before Liverpool pulled the plug following concerns over his medical.
Liverpool were expected to reignite their interest but there was no move as Fekir remained in France.
And the Lyon skipper led by example at the Etihad as he scored his side’s second goal in an excellent 2-1 win.
Fekir helped win back possession before driving at the City defence and unleashing a fine drive past Ederson.
Unsurprisingly after the clash, he was asked if he had a point to prove after his failed move to Anfield.
“I want to prove I’m a good player but the most important thing is the group,” he told Viasport.
“We are very happy to win here. It is not an easy game and City are a very good team.”
Maxwell Cornet opened the scoring for Lyon before Fekir’s strike and although Bernardo Silva got one back, the Ligue 1 side held on to the win.
