Manchester City came from behind to defeat Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium and pile the pressure on Arsenal in the Premier League title race.

City started the match well but a fine counter-attack from the visitors was finished off by Mo Salah, who scored against City for the fourth time this season, to send Liverpool in front.

Julian Alvarez, starting today in the absence of Erling Haaland, then slid home an equaliser after a slick move from the champions to send the teams into the break on level terms.

If the first half was an even affair the second was anything but. Two quickfire goals, inside seven minutes, from Kevin De Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan gave City a comfortable lead before Jack Grealish finished off a star performance with a goal of his own.

The victory now leaves Pep Guardiola’s men five points behind current leaders Arsenal and puts the pressure back on Mikel Arteta’s Gunners.
