Mohamed Salah scored the only goal of the game as Liverpool beat Manchester City in a tight contest at Anfield to end the visitor’s unbeaten run in the Premier League.
After an evenly contested affair, Allison found Salah with a perfect pass before the Egyptian managed to squeeze his effort past Ederson in the 74th minute to help Liverpool get only their third win of the season.
Coming into the contest on the back of a hefty win over Rangers, Liverpool had to wait for their chances as Pep Guardiola’s men dominated the early proceedings with controlled possession with Joe Gomez equal to the task.
The game finally came alive in the second half with Salah racing clear of the defence only to be denied by Ederson in a one-on-one.
Phil Foden seemed to have put the visitors in front but his effort was ruled out after a VAR check found that Erling Haaland had fouled Fabinho in the build-up to the goal before Diogo Jota wasted a glorious chance at the other end.
Liverpool finally found their goal through Salah whose effort proved to be the winner despite Darwin Nunez wasting a plethora of chances in the added time.
Jurgen Klopp also saw a red card for a protest in the later stages of the match and Jota was stretchered off in another injury blow to the Reds.
The win over Manchester City is just the third for Liverpool in the Premier League and sees them sit at eighth on the table as they look to build on from this win.
City, meanwhile, are now four points adrift of Arsenal who lead the table after their narrow 1-0 win over Leeds United.
