Mo Salah makes the difference as Liverpool trumps Manchester City in a one-goal decider

Liverpool won 1-0 at Anfield thanks to Mohamed Salah’s 76th-minute goal, as Manchester City lost for the first time this season and fell four points behind Arsenal at the top of the log.

The Egyptian superbly controlled Alisson’s clearance before spinning Joao Cancelo and racing clear to finish past Ederson.

Just before the goal, Phil Foden’s strike in the 53rd minute was ruled out after a foul on Fabinho by Erling Haaland was observed in the buildup. As a result of the outcome, City, who had been scoring in bunches earlier in the month, failed to score for the second time in a row after seeing out a goalless draw in the Champions League.

Liverpool are now the first team in 19 Premier League fixtures to stop City from scoring and the first to prevent Haaland have any goal involvement in a match. They find themselves rise to eighth on 13 points while the reigning champions remain second on 23 points, four behind leaders Arsenal.

The game was particularly notable for the incident in which Jurgen Klopp, the manager of Liverpool, was dismissed by referee Anthony Taylor for contesting a call.

Jurgen Klopp will now face suspension for the duration of next two games as a consequence of the actions, he took during the match.
