Premier League: Man City Defeat Liverpool 2-1

Manchester City inflicted Liverpool’s first Premier League defeat of the season to breathe new life into their title defence with a 2-1 victory at the Etihad on Thursday.

City now trail Jurgen Klopp’s men by just four points thanks to Leroy Sane’s winner 18 minutes from time after Roberto Firmino had cancelled out Sergio Aguero’s first-half opener for the hosts.

The dramatic ending to the 2013-14 campaign is still fresh in the mind of every Liverpool supporter and that memory will not be erased easily. The Reds were so close five years ago with a mere three games to go, yet one slip from Steven Gerrard – leading to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Chelsea – and an eventful 3-3 draw with Crystal Palace eventually saw City lift the trophy at the end of that season.
