Gary Neville gives his man of the match award to Fabinho, but there has been more than one contender in a red shirt.

Chance! Angelino crosses for Walker but he can't find the target!
Two penalty shouts ignored! Sterling wants a penalty for a handball, with Alexander-Arnold at the centre of attention again, before Jesus is brought down by Alisson. Michael Oliver ignores City strong appeals, as Guardiola reacts furiously on the touchline.
Chance! Sterling unselfishly decides to square the ball to Jesus in a great position but it's just behind the Brazilian and the chance is gone. City aren't prepared to give up just yet. Anfield is getting anxious.

GOAL! Liverpool 3-1 Man City: City have one back! Angelino drags the ball back to Bernardo Silva who swivels and finishes with a low shot which creeps in at Alisson's near post.
Stones knocks the ball out of play with a terrible pass, and then De Bruyne overcooks a simple pass in midfield. It's been that kind of day for City.
Alexander-Arnold switches the play with a beautiful diagonal ball to his fellow full-back Robertson, who plays it through to Milner and he forces a corner.

Man City sub: Gabriel Jesus takes the place of Aguero, whose Anfield drought continues.
De Bruyne throws his arms up in the air in frustration - City are beaten.
Close! Sterling switches the ball to De Bruyne on the left. His cross is perfect for Aguero but somehow he misses the connection at the near post. Ten games and still no goals for the Argentine at Anfield.
- Yellow cardRodrigoManchester City
No penalty! Running at pace, Sterling goes ground claiming a push in the back from Mane. Michael Oliver doesn't feel it's a foul and the VAR check agrees with the referee. Rodri is booked for his protest.
City have the look of a beaten team; Liverpool are rampant. Fabinho, full of confidence after his earlier strike, tries another effort from distance but it's blocked.

Liverpool sub: James Milner comes on for Henderson, whose cross for the third goal was a true delight.

- GoalSadio ManéLiverpool
GOAL! Liverpool 3-0 Manchester City: That should do it! Mane times his run to perfection and squeezes in Henderson's beautiful cross at the far post. Guardiola looks disgusted - City are crumbling at Anfield.
Gundogan's shot is deflected over the bar - Alisson looked worried. Like they did at the start of the match, City have made a bright start to proceedings after the restart.
Should Bravo have done better for Liverpool's opener?
- 2nd Half
The second half commences. More drama to come?
- End of 1st Half
HALF-TIME: Liverpool lead Man City 2-0 on an afternoon of high drama at Anfield.
There will be TWO minutes of added time to play at the end of the first half.
Save! Salah tries a first time curling effort from 25 yards out, forcing Bravo into a good save. A little more pace and curl and Liverpool were celebrating their third.
Chance! Aguero races in behind Lovren but snatches at the chance, pulling his shot well wide. Perhaps his goal drought at Anfield is playing on his mind?
The Egyptian is fit to continue, much to the relief of the Anfield support.
There's a concern for Salah who goes down after a strong tackle by Fernandinho.
All is not well for City...
Save! Alexander-Arnold goes on a lung-busting run, driving from left to the centre of the park and feeds Firmino inside the box. He twists and turns to create the space for a shot, but it's straight down the throat of Bravo. City's defence was all over the place - again.
Over! Gundogan only partially clears Salah's cross. Firmino pounces on the loose ball, sells Walker a dummy but then fires his shot into the stands.
Alexander-Arnold stands up his corner, Lovren rises highest through a crowd of bodies and flicks it on, but it rolls out for a goal-kick.
Liverpool attack from the left, Salah back-heeling the ball into the path of Henderson, who forces the corner. Salah looks really up for this today.
City work the ball to Angelino on the left and he hooks a delightful ball across the face of goal - but there's no one on the end of it.
Post! Angelino works his way through a crowded Liverpool penalty area and pokes the ball at goal, it takes a deflection, bounces off the outside of the post and out for a corner.
Having kept the ball so well, City have been guilty of a few stray passes in the last few minutes.
Save! Aguero cuts inside, nutmegging Fabinho, and opens the angle for a right-footed shot but it's at a comfortable height for Alisson who pushes the ball away from goal. And his wait for a first goal at Anfield continues.
Sterling is picked out at the far post, a change of pace takes him past Robertson but his cross is blocked.
Chance! Wijnaldum and Mane link up in a mouth-watering move, but the former then curls his side wide, though it took a deflection.
City are down, but not out. They are still having plenty of possession. Pep will want his team to stick to the game plan.
City have been very good on the ball but their defensive line has been at sixes and sevens. And against this ruthless Liverpool side you cannot give an inch.
Dramatic afternoon at Anfield so far, it's safe to say. Liverpool have had two attacks and have proved clinical. City's defence is all over the place.
- GoalMohamed SalahLiverpool
GOAAAAAALLLLLL! Liverpool 2-0 Man City: The Reds double their advantage with another textbook counter-attack! Robertson curls a cross from the left, Salah slips in between the City centre-backs and heads past Bravo. Was it offside? Close, but VAR says it stands. City have a mountain to climb!
Another City chance! Liverpool may be ahead on the scoreboard but their defence has left a lot to be desired. De Bruyne swings in another delightful free-kick, but it evades both Aguero and Bernardo.
Chance! Sterling has a wonderful chance to silence the home supporters as he runs in behind to meet De Bruyne's free-kick - but he heads over the bar.
Should Man City have had a penalty? It definitely hit Alexander-Arnold's arm, so maybe Liverpool have got away with one.
GOAAAAALLLLL! Liverpool 1-0 Man City: Ooooooohhh what a goal, Fabinho! City appeal for a penalty as the ball looks to brush Alexander-Arnold's arm, but the referee waves play on and Liverpool break to devastating effect. Fabinho strikes with an outrageous hit from 30 yards into the top corner. City are FURIOUS, but after a quick VAR check the goal stands.
City force a free-kick on the right, and then a corner. De Bruyne swings it in but Stones doesn't get a decent connection on his header.
Aguero, who has never scored at Anfield, feeds Sterling on the overlap, the former Liverpool forward drawing huge jeers from the home support. He concedes a foul as he loses the ball, but Man City have started well.
City win an early corner which De Bruyne whips in and Fabinho blocks Walker's shot.

KICK-OFF! We are underway at Anfield.
'You'll never walk alone' rings around Anfield ahead of the Remembrance Sunday tributes. A minute's silence will now take place.
There are just FIVE minutes until kick-off and the atmosphere is building nicely at Anfield. Here come the players...
No matter how hard Klopp and Pep try to play down the importance of this afternoon, it is a HUGE game and will have ramifications for the title race. Bravo hasn't played in the league in a long, long time and he has a make-shift back four ahead of him, with Fernandinho continuing to fill in for Laporte, while Angelino's defensive ability has raised questions in the past. Liverpool haven't been at their best in recent weeks but they must start the game as favourites.
Man City have won 11 of their past 12 Premier League away games, scoring 30 goals during that period.
Liverpool are unbeaten in 28 league games, and haven't lost at Anfield since May 2017. Riyad Mahrez missed a late penalty at Anfield last season, spurning a chance to win the game for City in the dying moments, as the game finished 0-0. City won the reverse fixture 2-1 and would go on to retain their title by a single point.
Klopp's side will be NINE points clear of City with a win today. It's a huge incentive for the Reds. Considering they have lost just one of their last 50 league games, they would have to lose at least three of their next 26 to allow City back in.
Guardiola: "I just want my team to fight to the end. Liverpool are a team that lost one game last season, none this season, so you cannot believe that they will lose many, but the season is long. They do everything well. You see the team, what is the weak point? They are a real complete team and we need this kind of rival."
Klopp: "From a sport's point of view, this rivalry is getting bigger and bigger. Thank god there is a rivalry because it means we are a pretty good team as well. If you are not brave against Man City you don't have the chance of even a point. Everyone has to be in top shape in the stadium on Sunday, even the guy selling the hotdogs. Everyone has to be there from the warm-up and invest all our emotions."
Pep Guardiola sometimes makes strange decisions for games at Anfield, a ground where City haven't won at since 2003.
Claudio Bravo comes in for Ederson in goal, as expected, but the big talking point in City's starting XI is the inclusion of Angelino, who is given the nod ahead of Benjamin Mendy at left-back. John Stones and Fernandinho play at centre back. Rodri is passed fit and starts in midfield but there's only a place on the bench for David Silva.
Liverpool are as expected - Jurgen Klopp makes just one change as Fabinho comes in for Adam Lallana. Jordan Henderson had been ill during the week but starts in midfield.

Hello and welcome to Eurosport's LIVE text commentary of the colossal Premier League encounter between none other than Liverpool and Manchester City.

The Reds have the opportunity to stretch their lead over last season's champions to nine points and move eight clear of Chelsea and Leicester. An away win would draw City to within three points of the leaders. The mother of all six-pointers. We will have team news and all the drama as it unfolds. Stay tuned. Kick-off is only an hour away!
