Jurgen Klopp’s side took the lead through a Fabinho rocket in the sixth minute, before Mohamed Salah headed home to make it 2-0 shortly afterwards.
Both goals were controversial for different reasons. City felt they should have been awarded a penalty moments earlier following an inadvertent Trent Alexander-Arnold handball, while there were suspicions that Salah may have been offside when he scored from Andrew Robertson’s cross.
Another Premier League game-week and yet more VAR controversy.
Sadio Mane then killed the game off with a third goal shortly after half-time, while Bernardo Silva’s goal with just under 15 minutes proved to be nothing more than a consolation as City ended the game on top.
The result leaves Liverpool eight points clear of Leicester City and Chelsea in second and third place, respectively. City, meanwhile, stay in fourth place but now find themselves nine points behind the league-leaders.,
Expect more twists and turns between now and May but Liverpool will never have a better chance to end their long wait for a Premier League trophy.
