Liverpool returned to the top of the Premier League table following their commanding win over Manchester United but it was only temporary.
The Reds were back to second place after Manchester City’s comfortable victory over Brighton & Hove Albion on Wednesday.
Jurgen Klopp’s side climbed to the top of the league standings after they hammered Manchester United 4-0 at Anfield on Tuesday evening following a brace by Mohamed Salah and goals from Luis Diaz and Sadio Mane.
However, Pep Guardiola’s men restored their one-point lead over the Reds and returned to the top of the league table after they cruised to a 3-0 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion through goals from Riyad Mahrez, Phil Foden and Bernardo Silva at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday evening.
Liverpool will now have six league matches left to play in order to try to snatch the title from Man City, while the Citizens will have six games to successfully defend their title.
Liverpool are two points behind City as it stands but have a better goal difference should it come down to that.
