Liverpool - Premier League - 4 January 2019

Manchester City has renewed hope it won't be surrendering the trophy at all.

The win for City handed the Reds their first defeat of the season and cut the gap at the top of the table to four points.

Having played Arsenal and City back-to-back, Juergen Klopp's Liverpool do not play another top six side until February 24 when they travel to Manchester United. "It had wild moments".

Manchester City are not the same team with Sergio Aguero on the sidelines.

Even a draw, which would have left Liverpool seven points clear, would have been something of a footballing Everest for City and Tottenham to climb to finish on top.

The game at the Etihad Stadium lived up to its billing with both sides showing that for all their trademark attractive football, they can go hard in a physical battle when so much is on the line. "They were so excited, and I am happy for them". Replays showed it was centimetres that separated Liverpool from an opening goal. It proved just enough, as goal-line technology ruled out the score.

Dejan Lovren set the tone with a heavy challenge on Aguero early on and Vincent Kompany was perhaps lucky to stay on the pitch after a unsafe first-half lunge on Mohamed Salah.

"I thought it was a great challenge". Kompany said, chuckling. "I felt I got the ball, a little bit of the man but it wasn't naughty". I didn't try to injure him.

"From minute one, they never let go the whole game".

Oakland was outscored by 177 points on the season, the second-worst mark in the National Football League to Arizona. Oakland allowed 52 sacks, its most since 2006, and Carr often struggled to find the time to get the ball downfield.

It was an unlucky night for the Reds, who could have taken the lead in the first half after Sadio Mane's shot to hit the post and the ensuing ball was cleared off the line.

"He had an awesome game and I'm so pleased he is back for us". "We can use that to our advantage and we'll look forward to the games ahead now". "These chances do not come along too often, you win it one year, and the next you're blown away in 10 games".

The equalizer was created by the fullbacks in the 64th.

"He has to defend the ball, win the ball, pass the ball!"

Just when Liverpool was gaining momentum, City roared back in front from a blistering counterattack.

"He just sells Leroy Sane a dummy and sees Andy Robertson at the far post".

"Everyone knows Fernandinho is important for us", Sane said. "We could've drawn, we could've won it".

When I heard Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren say before Christmas that they could emulate Arsenal's Invincibles side of 2003-04 and go the whole league season unbeaten, I groaned.
