Manchester City blew the Premier League title race open again, following a 2-1 win over leaders Liverpool on Thursday night.

The defeat at The Etihad was the Reds’ first loss of the season, as they had gone unbeaten in their opening 20 fixtures.

Sergio Aguero opened scoring in the first half, powering a shot past Alisson Becker from an acute angle.

Roberto Firmino equalized for Liverpool after the break, before Leroy Sane fired in the winner 18 minutes from time.

City now trail Jurgen Klopp’s men by just four points.

A run of nine straight league wins had given Liverpool a commanding lead at the top of the table, as they edged towards a first top-flight title since 1989/90, particularly after City suffered back-to-back shock defeats to Crystal Palace and Leicester to begin the festive season.
