Manchester City hands Liverpool first loss of Premier League season

QUIZ: Name the players to have scored against Liverpool in the Premier League this season

They're the top two contenders for the Premier League title.

If City does go on to win the title, this play will be remembered as a huge factor.

"I think it was very good game", said Silva. "He has to defend the ball, win the ball, pass the ball!"

Manchester City have inflicted Liverpool's first Premier League defeat of the season, to breathe new life into their title defense, with a 2-1 victory at the Etihad Stadium.

"Liverpool are in great shape", he said.

The loss means Liverpool's advantage at the top of the table was cut to four points.

Vincent Kompany could have easily seen red for a lunge on Mohamed Salah, while Leroy Sane's victor took the tiniest of deflections off Trent Alexander-Arnold before going in off the inside of the post.

Despite holding the City captain in high regard, Klopp still felt the tackle on Liverpool's star man was more than worthy of a dismissal. "If somebody had told me that, after both games against City, we would be four points clear, I would have paid money for it because I would have thought it is not possible. We're a better team when we play with emotion". "I am pretty sure of that".

What are they allowed to do? It is seen as a way to "test the waters" as to whether an individual should campaign or not. Exploratory money can be raised without requiring full disclosure of donors, as is required for a declared candidate.

Jürgen Klopp claimed that Vincent Kompany could have ended Mohamed Salah's season with a risky challenge as Liverpool's unbeaten run came to an end at the Etihad Stadium.

The best way they can bounce back is by forgetting about what happened at the Etihad, and forget about what City do next too. On the other side it was an intense game.

"I tried to take everything", Stones said.

Seconds later it was the turn of his understudy in the Brazil side to make a huge save as Ederson denied Salah as tempers flared with Guardiola furious a free-kick wasn't awarded City's way before the Egyptian broke clear.

But on Thursday night they had to, driven by the fear of falling ten points behind. Sadio Mane found Roberto Firmino down the right-hand side, and his cross into the center was almost headed into Man City's net by Fernandinho, but Ederson was quick to react and prevent the own goal.

Receiving Bernardo Silva's cross on his right foot, Aguero got away from Dejan Lovren and used his left boot to power the ball into the roof of the net.

In these kind of games, against the top teams, you can not afford to switch off for a second, even when you have the momentum.
