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

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

Jurgen Klopp's men tried hard to come back in the game after going down but the Cityzen's defence stood strong and didn't let their title rivals equalize for the second time in the game.

Manchester City managed a pivotal win against the Reds last night at the Etihad to end their unbeaten streak in the Premier League.

Klopp remained calm after the game, however, and insisted the position on which Liverpool find themselves is still superb.

The result means that Liverpool's lead at the top of the table is now down to four points.

This is an impressive Liverpool team, make no mistake, and they are stronger in all departments than the team that went so close to winning the title under Brendan Rodgers in 2014. I got the ball, a little bit of the man, but it wasn't naughty.

With De Bruyne back and in form, City can pose a formidable threat to Liverpool and they are capable of causing sleepless nights for Klopp and his players.

It was an unlucky night for the Reds, who could have taken the lead in the first half after Sadio Mane's shot to hit the post and the ensuing ball was cleared off the line.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has confirmed that McIver's case does not appear to be linked to that of the other two detainees. Meng is sought by the United States for allegedly lying to banks as part of an effort to evade sanctions on Iran.

City once again did prove their quality as champions, rising to the occasion to beat a Liverpool side who were unbeaten and had won their last nine games.

Speaking during Sky Sports' coverage of the game, Neville pulled out the positive of Alexander-Arnold's performance, highlighting his contribution for his side's goal. City had a few more moments when they controlled the game, but we had these moments as well - not as long or maybe as often as City, but it's an away game and that's absolutely OK. Do we need an open something (wound)'. You could see that, especially in the first half, we won a lot of duels, important duels, too.

Over the 90 minutes City edged it and were the better team in possession.

"It was a final for us, because losing today it was nearly over", said Guardiola.

Yes, they could have been better, but they should not be shamed for their performances either, given our placement on the table now.

"I would have paid money for it you can not believe", Klopp said. I am disappointed because we lost.
