Liverpool Destroy Manchester City To Extend Gap At The Top To Eight Points

Liverpool Destroy Manchester City To Extend Gap At The Top To Eight Points

Liverpool have dismantled Manchester City 3-1 at Anfield to move eight points clear at the top of the Premier League.

The game was the most anticipated of the weekend and it didn't fail to deliver with fantastic play as well as controversy.

Jurgen Klopp's side took an early lead through Fabinho who rifled a long range effort past stand in goalkeeper Claudio Bravo but VAR dominated the discussion.

Trent Alexander-Arnold appeared to handle in the Liverpool box before the Reds' went up the other end of the pitch to score.

But VAR ruled there to be no penalty and Liverpool didn't look back.

Mohamed Salah scored seven minutes later to double Liverpool's lead.

But VAR was again the main focus in the moments after the strike.

Salah looked to be offside but again VAR ruled against Manchester City and it gave Liverpool a comfortable cushion going into the second half.

City did have chances in the first half and their leaky defence didn't stop them from pouring forward to get back into the game.

But their lack of organisation at the back ended up costing them early into the second half.

Liverpool scored a third from another header after Jordan Henderson's wicked ball reached Sadio Mane who beat Bravo at the near post in the 51st minute.

Bernardo Silva netted a consolation for City just over ten minutes from time.

The Premier League champions poured men forward in the final ten minutes but Liverpool held on.

City's winless run at Anfield now stretches back to 2003 and Pep Guardiola's side find themselves fourth in the Premier League going into the international break.

Liverpool sit atop the Premier League with 34 points out of a total 36 and are eight points clear of Leicester City and Chelsea in second and third respectively.
