Manchester City broke their Anfield course as they beat Liverpool at Anfield for the first time since 2003.
Their sole victory in the new top-flight league was a 2-1 win in May 2003 when one of this current fixture’s goal scorer Phil Foden was only two years old.
Two goals from Ilkay Gundogan, one each from Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden made sure that Liverpool who is still without a win at home in 2021 lost the match by four goals to one. Mo’ Salah’s penalty in the 63rd was only a consolation.
Manchester City are now 10 points above Liverpool. They are also five points ahead of second-placed Manchester United with a game in hand.
Liverpool on the other hand are without a win at home in 2021. They have now lost three consecutive home matches. They lost to Burnley, Brighton and now Manchester City.
After winning each of their last 14 matches, Manchester City have now equalled the all-time winning run by an English top-flight side across all competitions.
