Second half goals from Kevin De Bruyne, Ilkay Gundogan and Jack Grealish saw city fully in control of the game.

The win narrowed Arsenal’s lead to five points as Arsenal will be looking to increase the point gap as they take on Leeds United at the Emirates Stadium.

Despite Erling Haaland’s absence, the win showed Manchester City is a lethal side in front of goal and a force to contend with in the league.

Manchester City kicked off the match controlling proceedings with John Stones pairing with Rodri in the midfield as Liverpool looked more likely to break on the counter-attack. Salah exposed the weakness of the City defence with a well struck goal after a fine pass from Diogo Jota.

Salah was through again soon after but it proved to be the pivotal moment in the match. Grealish intercepted his centre and was back down the other end moments later providing the assist for Alvarez’s equaliser, the culmination of a sumptuous City move.
