    FORTRESS INVADED

    Three weeks ago, Liverpool appeared unbeatable at Anfield as the stretched their home run to 68 Premier League games without defeat.

    Now they find themselves on their worst run of home league losses since 1963.

    What has happened to the Reds?

    FANTASTIC PHIL FODEN

    Manchester City's boy wonder has been speaking at full time following a superb display for the league leaders, capped by a brilliant individual goal.

    I struck it perfectly. I was so happy to see it go in and help my team.

    Phil Foden

    DROP OF THE KLOPP'S

    Jurgen Klopp's men are making a real hash of their title defence.

    FT: LIVERPOOL 1-4 MAN CITY

    Manchester City's have won at Anfield for the first time since 2003, and have done so in style. They were helped on their way by two uncharacteristic blunders from Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson that allowed Ilkay Gundogan and Raheem Sterling to score, and all after Mo Salah had brought the hosts level from the penalty spot. Phil Foden's sensational strike was the icing on the cake as Liverpool fell to a third successive home defeat for the first time since 1963.

    PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!
    THE FINAL WHISTLE GOES!

    90. There will be three minutes of added time to be played before Man City go five points clear at the top of the table.

    Remember, they will have a game in hand.

    Remember, they will have won 14 games in a row in all competitions.

    Remember, they still have De Bruyne and Aguero to come back into the team.

    88. It's a procession now for City.

    Meanwhile, it's no surprise to see some of the greats of the game queuing up to praise Phil Foden.

    85. Jurgen Klopp makes his final change with Kostas Tsimikas on for Andy Robertson. The Scot looks shellshocked as he depart.

    84. What a goal! What a player!

    It's absolutely magnificent from Phil Foden, who takes Gabriel Jesus' pass in his stride on the right, darts into the box, and absolutely hammers a shot through Alisson and into the roof of the net.

    Every City player runs to the youngster, they know he's something special. They know they're something special. They know they're on the verge of something special.

  • Sam Dymond

    GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAALLLLL!!
    BRILLIANT FROM PHIL FODEN!!

    LIVERPOOL 1-3 MAN CITY

    83. City are really enjoying themselves here now.

    80. With that goal, Raheem Sterling brings up his 100th Manchester City goal under Pep Guardiola.

    It's also his first at Anfield since he left Liverpool.

    LIVERPOOL 1-3 MAN CITY

    76. Alisson blunderland!

    The Brazilian goalkeeper has made the same mistake again, making a mess of another routine backpass by sending it straight to Bernardo Silva on the right of the box.

    It presents the Spaniard with a simple opportunity to charge down on the Liverpool stopper, and loop a cross over for Raheem Sterling to head in at the far post from a yard out.

    It's unbelievable! City lead 3-1!

  • Sam Dymond

    GOOOOOOAAAAALLLL!!
    ALISSON HAS DONE IT AGAIN!!
    RAHEEM STERLING MAKES IT THREE!!

    75. The game has really livened up now…

    73. Manchester City lead again but it's all down to the carelessness of Alisson.

    The Liverpool goalkeeper – usually so reliable – is almost dispossessed on the edge of his own box when he tries an unnecessarily clever flick. He gets away with it, but doesn't learn his lesson when the ball is laid back to him seconds later.

    A terrible kick out is straight at Phil Foden, who still has much to do. He does it brilliantly, dribbling towards the touchline before squaring a pass for Ilkay Gundogan to score.

  • Sam Dymond

    GOOOOOOOOOAAAAAALLLL!!
    ILKAY GUNDOGAN DOES IT AGAIN!!

    LIVERPOOL 1-1 MAN CITY

    71. From the free-kick, Stones has the ball in the back of the net – but City celebrations are immediately cut short by the linesman's flag.

    Replays show the officials were correct with the centre-back just ahead of Liverpool's last line when the delivery came across.

    70. Fabinho is yellow card for cynically pulling back Foden. The City forward is furious.

    68. Silva slams a shot wide from just outside the box after Liverpool's makeshift had done everything/anything to keep City's forwards at bay.

    67. A double change for Liverpool as Xherdan Shaqiri replaces Thiago with James Milner on for Curtis Jones.

    66. Jurgen Klopp believes his team can take all three points here and is urging his players on from the sideline.

    LIVERPOOL 1-1 MAN CITY

    63. Sterling nearly conjures something magical to offer City the opportunity of an immediate response.

    The forward goes on a weaving run through the home side's midfield and defence, but falters at the last with his pass to an unmarked Mahrez.

  • Sam Dymond

    LIVERPOOL 1-1 MAN CITY

    63. Just as he did in November, Mo Salah scores from the spot against Manchester City.

    The Egyptian makes no mistake, firing high into the roof of the net as Ederson dived away to his left.

    It was Salah himself who won the penalty, first taking advantage of hesitancy from Ruben Dias in dealing with a long ball forward, and then going down dramatically when tugged back by the defender.

    It's Liverpool's first home goal of 2021, and the first City have conceded in ten hours of football.
