Massive result for City. I would go as far as to say their best under Pep Guardiola. A result and second-half performance worthy of winning the title - which it probably has. Thanks for following the match with us.

90+2' 

City win a corner which should just about end the game.

88' 

Liverpool seem a bit shell-shocked once again and if their fans were here they would be making less noise than the fake crowd sound on tv.

83'

GOAL FOR CITY! The England international cut in from the left flank and then fired the ball over the crouching Liverpool keeper and into the roof of the net. It was a fiercesome effort but Alisson will again be frustrated he didn't keep it out.

79' 

Incredible turn of events. Probably the best goalkeeper in the world over the last few years but these were two incredible errors.

76'

GOAL FOR CITY! Another horrendous Alisson error, he gives the ball straight to Bernardo who clips the ball over the Liverpool keeper and Sterling heads home from a yard out.

73'

GOAL FOR CITY! Gundogan gets another goal poacher goal. This time created by a superb run into the box and squared ball from Foden. Twice in the build up Alisson gave the ball away, the second time straight to 25 yards from goal. He beats Henderson on the right hand side of the area and then lays the ball on a plate.

72'

Jesus comes on for Mahrez.

71'

OFFSIDE GOAL! Gundogan plays a short free kick to Foden who curls a lovely ball in that John Stones steers home but he was just offside.

70'

Foden gets past Fabinho and runs down the left flank before being pulled down by the defender who gets a yellow card.

69' 

Sterling got behind Alexander-Arnold and crossed for Foden who dived looking for a penalty and then then Bernardo Silva tried an effort from 20 yards that flew a yard or so wide.

68'

Shaqiri and Milner come on for Jones and Thiago.

66' 

It was difficult to see that coming. Dias has been so solid for City this year - and the bookies' second favourite for the player of the year awards - that was a hell of an error though.

64'

GOAL! Salah fires straight down the middle of the goal into the roof of the net as Ederson dived to his left.

63'

PENALTY! Dias loses track or a long ball, overrunning it and Salah nicks the ball from him and is then pulled back for a penalty.

61' 

City just keeping ball now. It looks like they could do this for the next 30 minutes.

58' 

Robertson curls in a corner but City clear comfortably.

56' 

Jones shoots from 25 yards out but never looks in danger of hitting the target.

55' 

Foden is penalised for a foul on Henderson 30 yards from goal. After which he puts the ball in the back of the net. Don't seem to get cautions for that anymore.

53' 

City now in charge and Liverpool look a little shell-shocked.

49'

GOAL! Gundogan nets from close range. Sterling too easily beat Alexander-Arnold then squard to Foden, his shot was blocked on the stretch by Alisson but Gundogan was there to smash home and redeem his penalty miss.

47' 

Salah tries to play in Mane but Cancelo stifles the danger.

46' 

Bernardo Slilva starting a bit higher up the pitch He was pretty anonymous in the first half. You would think Jesus may be brought on soon.

46'

Liverpool get us back underway...

 

It is now six-and-a-half hours since Liverpool have scored at Anfield. An incredible stat.

Half Time

A disapointing half, only livened up by the penalty and awful subsequent efford at goal from Gundogan.

45' 

Alexander-Arnold's cross is headed towards goal by Mane but is easily stopped by Ederson.

45' 

Thiago takes the kick and it flicks the wall and over for a corner.

44' 

Michael Oliver gives a free kick for a foul on Mane by Cancelo just outside the area. The right decision. About a third of the way across the penalty area from the left.

42' 

Salah shot hits Rhodri's arm from a yard away so not long for VAR to check that. Immediately afterwards Robertson put in a typically dangerous waist-high cross across the six-yard box but City clear.

40' 

It's easy to say this when they miss...but it looked such a casual attempt.

37' 

Gundogan misses! And misses by miles. Trying to clip the penalty across his body into the top corner and it was over a yard high and wide of the angle of the bar.

36'

PENALTY! A great run from Sterling, slaloing in from the left wing. He turns inside Alexander-Arnold too easily and outpaces Thiago before he is caught by Fabinho's trailing leg.

35' 

Liverpool having much the better of the game now. The game all being played in City's half.

32' 

Alexander-Arnold long cross has City a little worried and Stones only just heads away from danger with Ederson out of position.

30' 

The corner is easily cleared and Jones was left one-on-one with Foden but dispossessed the City forward.

29' 

Again Henderson provides some impetus. A long ball for Salah which forces Dias to head away and Firmino lines up a half-colley and sgrikes it well but Ederson tips over the bar.

28' 

Befitting the game it's a poor set piece and Rodri could not get a good contact on the cross and it goes out for a goal kick.

27' 

Mane cips Mahrez 35 yards from goal giving away a free kick. Lucky not to get a booking the star striker.

25'

The first chance of a game. And it started because Henderson tried a long ball. Zinchencko could only flick away to the sideline. Alexander-Arnold kept it in, then beat the City left back before clipping a perfect cross for Mane who headed over the bar..

22' 

Wijnaldum drives out superbly on the break but again it slows down when they get to the final third and it is back with Liverpool's centre backs now. Their failure to commit on the counter-attack has been disappointed so far. Maybe it's confidence.

19' 

Mahrez crosses into the box but cleared by Fabinho. Sterling then tries a low side foot across the box which is easily cleared. For such great attacking players their passes in the final third have been so unimaginative so far.

16' 

Not much of a game so far. Some slick passing avoiding energetic pressing and good positioning but all happening in the middle third of the field.

14' 

Robertson has time to put a cross in but no one was attacking the ball and Ederson is able to collect on the stretch six yards from his goal.

12' 

City have tried a few diagonal cross-filed balls towards Sterling. Keeping Alexander-Arnold honest. He has looked on his game so far.

10' 

Liverpool are pressing well and Stones looks a lot less assured than he has done this year in a couple of moments.

8' 

Sterling lays the ball back to Zinchenko on the edge of the box who fires a low cross/shot in which Henderson clears.

5' 

He seems to be up, about and looking fine Gundogan. Good news.

2'

Thiago late on Gundogan who looks like he has turned his ankle. The former Barca and Bayern man gets a yellow card.

1'

City get us underway...

16:27 

We're almost ready to go now. Really looking forward to this one. Liverpool at over 2/1 doesn't look a bad bet when you look at their side.

16:20 

Do wonder if Henderson and Fabinho will find it more difficult against a flexible forward line where they cannot easily gauge who they should be picking up. Although Guardiola has been playing a false nine on a few occasions recently I wonder if this played a role in him choosing to do so today.

16:11 

Reasons for the Reds to be cheerful...

16:05 

Jurgen Klopp has called for a mix of "proper defending and good attacking football" in his pre-match chat.

16:02 

The teams are currently split by seven points, with City having a game in hand. Even the most optimistic of Liverpool fans cannot think they will retain their title if this lead is to extend to double figures. Even a five-point lead over United with a game in hand would seem near insurmountable.

15:54 

Interesting top-rated side of the two so far this season. No De Bruyne seems a big surprise. Thiago in will raise a lot of eyebrows but don't mind his selection - so long as not in place of the Belgian.

15:47 

What a stat this is from the UK's number one statman...

15:42 

As for Liverpool, the big three in attack are back and their mix in midfield looks perfect. Not playing Curtis Jones against Brighton seemed strange after he turned the previous match coming on against West Ham. He will provide impetus so the ball-play of Thiago and Wijnaldum has more of an end product.

15:38 

The obvious eye-catcher is the no centre forward policy from Guardiola. In front of Rodri they have five exceptional attacking players but no Gabriel Jesus or even Ferran Torres as an attacking spearhead. I'd expect a flexible front three of Sterling, Foden and Mahrez.

15:34 

And this is the City side looking to increase their lead at the top of the table.

15:32 

This is how the Reds are lining up in a match they surely have to win if they are to retain their title this year.

15:30
