Football Breaking News: Manchester City Beat Liverpool 2-1 To End 20-Match Unbeating Run

Liverpool FC dominance in EPL has finally been broken by high and flying Manchester City who have also have a wobbling run in recent fixtures. Leroy Sane and Aguero was on target for the skyblue team while Firmino was on target for the reds.

Manchester City reignited the Premier League title race as they brought to an end Liverpool's 20-game unbeaten start to the season to reduce their lead at the top of the table to four points.

Pep Guardiola's hosts knew nothing less than a win at Etihad Stadium would do on a night riddled with tension that produced a game that was frenetic according to BBC if not a classic.

Leroy Sane produced the decisive moment 18 minutes from time as he collected Raheem Sterling's pass to fire across Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson, after it seemed like Roberto Firmino's stooping header would maintain the visitors' unbeaten sequence.

Sergio Aguero had earlier given City the lead with a rising near-post drive just before the interval.

That came after a moment of drama when Liverpool forward Sadio Mane hit the City post and John Stones scrambled the ball off the line after his attempted clearance struck goalkeeper Ederson - with data subsequently showing the ball had failed to cross by just 1.12cm.

Both sides had chances in a frantic finale but it was City who claimed a crucial win though they did not produce the purist style that is their trademark, they dug deep to get the job done despite some late moments of panic in their penalty box and wayward finishing in the other.
