Liverpool fans rage at ‘shambles’ Dejan Lovren after Manchester City loss

Manchester City beat Liverpool to pull back into the Premier League title race

Manchester City beat Liverpool to pull back into the Premier League title race

Fans of rival clubs have accused (albeit mocked) Jurgen Klopp for his inability to win a silverware despite the "countless hugs given to his players and his wild punches in the air when celebrating goals or victories" since his move from Borussia Dortmund to Liverpool. It is closer, every game is a final'.

NBC Sports network will broadcast Manchester City vs Liverpool.

Firmino restored parity in the 64th minute and City initially looked rattled, as if they could see the Premier League trophy moving out of sight, until Sane found the bottom-right corner to breathe life into their challenge once again.

The home team's response was good and they were able to manufacture a shooting chance for David Silva inside the area in the 28th minute, but it was well blocked by Virgil van Dijk.

There was a rarely a tiresome moment after Sadio Mane hit the post for Liverpool in the 18th minute.

The Brazilian's presence and ability to snub out counter-attacks were severely missed as the team's defence bowed to the likes of Leicester City and Crystal Palace. Huge compliments to Aymeric Laporte against these strikers.

Meanwhile, Christmas had been kind to Liverpool.

A moment in Amazon's "All or Nothing" documentary, which had brilliant behind the scenes access, showed that ahead of that Champions League game Guardiola was so concerned about Liverpool he spoke about them ahead of a game against Everton.

In fact, three league draws had been the only blemish to a fantastic season before tonight - an unbeaten form that could only be matched by Juventus and PSG in Europe's top five leagues. Winning today - the Premier League is eveyone's tie again.

Croatia global Lovren has looked solid alongside Virgil Van Dijk for large spells of the season, but crumbled in the pressure of a crunch fixture and they may have missed the injured Joe Gomez in the heart of defence. Even though Liverpool's lead atop the table was cut to four, Klopp and Co. still controls their own destiny.

The strongest opponents City faced in 2018 were Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Lyon.

Despite the £1.39bn net spend overseen by Shiekh Mansour since his takeover in 2008, Riyad Mahrez was the only notable signing to last season's record-breaking team.

Up next for City in the Premier League is a date against Wolves on January 14.
