  • Manchester City ends Liverpool's unbeaten run to throw EPL title race wide open

After losing three of their previous five games, the much-hyped encounter was one City could not afford to lose as they risked falling 10 points behind.

Completing the packed festive program with an engrossing encounter, Liverpool's threatened a comeback when Roberto Firmino cancelled out Sergio Aguero's first-half opener but Leroy Sane struck the victor in the 72nd minute.

Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho hailed the performance of Bernardo Silva for victory over Liverpool.

Alisson demonstrated why Liverpool spent a then world record £67 million for a goalkeeper in July to bolster their title chances with a brilliant save from Aguero as the Argentine tried to round him at the end of a blistering City counter-attack. That is what City did when Liverpool beat them in January a year ago - they just went on another long unbeaten run.

"It was that or let him go through on goal and the decision was made very quickly in my head".

"System wise it wasn't a real alternative in the beginning and we adapted well after we changed, only because Gini [Georginio Wijnaldum] played really well on the left wing, or half left wing, if you like", Klopp said.

However, the England defender somehow managed to keep the ball out of the goal by the most minimal of margins.

City's recent shock back-to-back defeats to Crystal Palace and Leicester had allowed Liverpool to amass a commanding lead in their quest to win a first title since 1990.

"He just sells Leroy Sane a dummy and sees Andy Robertson at the far post. We lost, but it's not the biggest problem".
