ONE punter enjoyed Liverpool's four-goal thriller with Manchester City more than most after scooping a colossal £3.2k.
The mystery bettor placed £10 on an eight-leg bet builder at combined odds of 320/1 to win £3,215.74.
The Betfair customer couldn't have hoped for a better start with City centre-back Ruben Dias booked after 27 minutes.
James Milner then picked up a yellow card for a blatant foul on Phil Foden down the left channel.
And as the half-time whistle blew – our punter still needed SIX selections.
Joao Cancelo took a 56th-minute caution for tripping Milner.
And Liverpool's vastly improved second-half performance saw two more picks settled with Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane both having a shot on target.

Reds hero Mohamed Salah ticked off TWO of the punters' selections with his stunning solo goal at odds of 1/1 to score anytime.
With 14 minutes or normal time remaining – the bettor just needed Fabinho to be booked for over £3.2k.
Time ticked away until the 83rd minute when the defensive midfielder hacked down Bernardo Silva, forcing referee Paul Tierney to reach to his pocket.
Betfair Spokesperson, Sam Rosbottom said: "Sunday's match between Liverpool and Manchester City was one of the games of the season so far and for one of our punters it was a game they won't forget for sometime after they turned their £10 stake into just over £3,200 by landing all eight selections of their Bet Builder.
"The 320/1 accumulator featured cards for Dias, Cancelo, Milner and Fabinho, one or more shots on target for Jota, Salah and Mane, while a stunning solo goal from the Egyptian king completed all eight picks."
