So, an Everton fan wanted Manchester City to win last night because when he was a kid, a Liverpool supporter once spray-painted 'LFC' on his dog.

Many, many Evertonians were actually rooting for City on Wednesday to spoil Liverpool's chances of winning the Premier League title.

And it looked like Marco Silva didn't want Liverpool to win the league, either. He dropped both Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson from his starting XI.

Manchester City eventually secured all-three league points and in doing so, went above Liverpool to the top of the league on goal difference.
Liverpool, though, have the chance to regain top spot on Saturday when they host Bournemouth.
Jurgen Klopp will be hoping for a positive result following back-to-back draws against Leicester City and West Ham United.
After Mondays 1-1 draw with the 'Hammers', social media jumped on Liverpool and called them 'bottlers'.
However, a Liverpool fan brilliantly refuted such claim with an eye-opening thread.
Perception is a funny thing in football isn't it. In the last ten games City have dropped 12 points, we've dropped 7.- Ste Davies (@StevenD1977) February 5, 2019
City have lost to 3 of the teams outside the top 6, we've drawn against 2 of them
Yet Liverpool are percieved as the ones bottling it and blowing it.
Its unquestionable that our performances have dropped off since 2019 started, but theres always going to be bad spells in a season. If (and its a big if) we can play ourselves back into form quickly we're still in a great position. We'll drop points, City will too undoubtedly.- Ste Davies (@StevenD1977) February 5, 2019
If the last 2 games were dotted across the season and the league looked as it does now nobody would be flinching, but perception and performances magnify the nerves. Lets get to Anfield on Saturday, no nerves in the stands, lets be confident and hope that transfers to the pitch- Ste Davies (@StevenD1977) February 5, 2019
A good, solid win on Saturday, especially if City drop points in the next 2 games and that perception can change again. This was never gonna be easy, we're Liverpool and we NEVER do it the easy way, but that doesn't mean we won't do it. Keep the faith Reds!- Ste Davies (@StevenD1977) February 5, 2019
Will Liverpool get their hands on the prestigious silverware? Let us know what you think.
