Manchester City Snap Liverpool's Unbeaten Run To Reignite Title Race

Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp face off

And in Liverpool's case it's not just anyone who is chasing them but it's Manchester City, one of the best teams in Premier League history. For us it was just another important Premier League game.

"They [Liverpool] are leaders - it is four points but we have reduced the gap", Guardiola said. Stones cleared a potential own goal off the line in the first half during a wild sequence.

Many observers felt the rash tackle warranted a red card, but as the Egyptian forward lay writhing on the ground Kompany walked past with a few choice words for his rival.

In addition, Van Dijk - who signed for the club this time past year for an estimated $94 million - has brought much-needed leadership to a back-four that has conceded just ten league goals this season.

With City backing off too far as Liverpool launched their first serious attack, Salah had time to pick his pass to Sadio Mane, whose shot hit the inside of the post.

Man City looked to come out aggressively and had the early edge in possession after pressure on Alisson forced a wayward clearance from the Liverpool goalkeeper, who entered the match having conceded only eight times in 20 games. However, we lost it and it was clear that would happen at some point.

But parity lasted just eight minutes as Sane fired City's victor off the post, leaving Liverpool to come to terms with their first league defeat since May 6.

"We went toe to toe with a very aggressive team and we matched them". While obviously disappointed with the result, Henderson took solace in Liverpool's performance at the home of the reigning champions and their standing after 21 games played.

Frustrated after being left out of Germany's World Cup squad, Sane began City's first three league games on the bench and was then left out entirely for the trip to Newcastle amid claims Pep Guardiola was concerned by the youngster's focus in training.

We strike back. We lost at Manchester City but we have to show constantly that we are on top of our game. Of course, it will be a challenge but this is what we want.

"For tonight, the boys tried everything, and we got nothing for it. It gives you more confidence to know we are closer and it's not over already".
