In the 18-team tournament in the United States, City opened the scoring through Leroy Sane early in the second half but fell to defeat as Mohamed Salah and a late Sadio Mane penalty sealed victory at the MetLife Stadium.
Salah, Mane and Georginio Wijnaldum only joined up with Jurgen Klopp's side in NY and the Egyptian forward, a 62nd-minute substitute, again stood out, picking up where he left off last season when he headed Rafael Camacho's cross past Joe Hart.

Liverpool are buzzing with optimism ahead of the 2018/19 season amidst a very successful transfer window, which has so far seen Naby Keïta, Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and, more recently, Alisson Becker sign for the club.
"The best players in the world aren't known because they just did it in one season, they do it over and over again", Milner said.
"In three years there are good and bad moments".
