The unbeaten leader Liverpool wins the top match against Man City and extends its lead. Defending champion City falls fourth in the table.
Jürgen Klopp has won with Liverpool and the top match of the Premier League and his eternal rival Pep Guardiola once again inflicted a painful defeat. Liverpool beat 53,304 fans at Anfield in a blistering duel with Manchester City on Sunday 3-1 (2-0) for themselves and stand alone at the top of the table: twelve season games, eleven victories, no defeat – and already nine points ahead on defending City. Across the season, the Reds have been unbeaten for 29 league games, they had lost in early January, then away at ManCity. The Sky Blues with national player Ilkay Gündogan slipped to fourth place this weekend, with Leicester City and Chelsea passing with victories.
Fabinho (6th) and Mohamed Salah (13th / left in the picture) gave the Liverpoolers a blast-free start, while Sadio Mané (51.) eased in the second half. Despite numerous chances only Bernardo Silva (78.) met for Manchester. "It was a wild game, no setup was easy, the goals were incredible, it was a perfect evening," Klopp told Sky. "We played a great game against the best team in Europe and I'm proud of my team," said Guardiola despite the defeat. For Klopp it was the ninth victory in the 18th duel with Guardiola (two draws).
