Leroy Sane may have gone but Phil Foden and Raheem Sterling stepped up to give Manchester City a deserved win against Premier League Champions Liverpool.

Manchester City won’t be invincibles after suffering their first Premier League defeat of the season at Liverpool.

Late goals from substitute Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan set up a pulsating finish in which Sergio Aguero so nearly scored an equaliser at the death on the ground where they have won only once since 1981.
This was City’s first domestic defeat since April when they lost at Chelsea while for Liverpool they are now unbeaten in 18 games in all competitions, their best run since Jurgen Klopp took charge.
