Liverpool don’t half do it the hard way, but after taking a 4-1 lead against City, they just about hold on to inflict a first league defeat of the season on City!

Guardiola’s side remain 15 points clear, but what a boost for Liverpool on an afternoon where Arsenal also lost.

Klopp walks off with pure delight on his face, while ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ bellows out.

One of the games of the season. A seven-goal thriller which lifts Liverpool up to third.
