Two horrendous errors from Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker left Liverpool’s title defence hanging by a thread as Manchester City ran out 4-1 victors at Anfield
With the score at one apiece and 17 minutes remaining, the ultra-consistent goalkeeper gave the ball away to Phil Foden who brilliantly set up Ilkay Gundogan for his second goal of the game, then three minutes later he gave the ball straight to Bernardo Silva in the box and he impudently scooped the ball over the Liverpool keeper for Raheem Sterling to nod home on the goal-line.
Foden put more gloss on the victory with a fearsome strike seven minutes from time, which powered through the Brazilian stopper’s hands en route to the roof of the net.
Earlier, Gundogan missed a spot kick after Sterling had been felled in the only memorable incident from a drab first half, before the German midfielder made amends netting from close range after Alisson made a good stop from Foden’s low shot.
Mo Salah put the hosts back on level terms when he converted a spot kick after being pulled down by Ruben Dias.
Liverpool, in fourth position, are now 10 points behind leaders City having played a game more.
