Title-chasing Liverpool pulls clear of Man City with 1-0 win
Georginio Wijnaldum’s soaring eighth-minute header from Adam Lallana’s cross was enough to put Liverpool in second place and put a serious dent in City’s own title challenge.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp led the celebrations at the end of a game that was high on energy but sadly lacking in any moments of genuine quality.
City, who laboured throughout, improved in the second half but never seriously threatened Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet and this loss leaves them 10 points adrift of Chelsea.
Sergio Aguero’s return didn’t help Pep Guardiola’s men as they failed to fire and fell 10 points adrift of Chelsea.
