Silva has started all but three of City's Premier League games this season highlighting his importance to the side and Guardiola was effusive in his praise of him post-match.

With City leading 1-0, Liverpool was able to equalize in the 64th minute. Four points is still an impressive lead for Liverpool, who remain favourites to win the club's first league title since 1990.

Firmino's equaliser, followed by Sane's victor, capped a pulsating second half, but City's win denied Liverpool the chance to open up a 10-point gap by claiming victory. "That's how it is sometimes in life", Klopp said afterward, adding that he felt City defender Vincent Kompany should've been sent off for a first-half foul on Salah.

Pep Guardiola has stated that City's Premier League clash against Liverpool was "like a final" to the squad.

The forward sparked panic in the hosts' defense after his shot rebounded off the post and nearly crept back in after hitting City goalkeeper Ederson. Reigning champion Manchester City will fall 10 points behind Liverpool with loss, but a win for the home team will cut Liverpool's lead to just four points. Victory means they can now look ahead with gusto, and we have analysed how City have fared against their next five league opponents. It was a lovely goal that came thanks to the left-back and right-back. The only team to make rubbish of the relevance of being atop the table at Christmas has been Liverpool. "At the end, we were unlucky and they won the game".

It's no surprise that Guardiola was a little bit anxious by Liverpool's front three considering they scored 91 goals between them in all competitions last season. He's clean, he's clever, he fought against Van Dijk.

In addition, Van Dijk - who signed for the club this time previous year for an estimated $94 million - has brought much-needed leadership to a back-four that has conceded just ten league goals this season.

Nuno Espirito Santo's men have proved a tough nut for the top six to crack this season, and City saw firsthand just how resilient Wolves are during a 1-1 draw at the Etihad Stadium earlier this term.

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.
