It was the latest VAR controversy in the Premier League and is certain to spark more debate, but while the opening goal set the tone, Liverpool's dominance was soon evident all across the field.

"Of course you want to win it, but at the same time, last season was a better feeling to win the title than the season before".

Liverpool were then camped inside their own half, but held out for what could prove to be a vital win come May.

"For me he's the best manager in the world and we have the chance to win against his team which is very hard but possible". The way they play and create chances and the personality to play all the time.

The top two will meet on Sunday at Anfield.

Manchester City have already lost two Premier League games this season following surprises defeats by promoted side Norwich City and Wolverhampton Wanderers. "Oh they were good and we had to defend with all we had but we scored incredible goals".

Even so, Guardiola was enraged on the touchline, and after the final whistle he shook hands with Liverpool's players before seeking out the match officials and saying "thank you so much" - his voice and face dripping with sarcasm.

Both teams have denied that the clash at Anfield is a "must-win" game, but it would certainly hand either team a massive advantage in the title race. November, December and January are coming.

"We want to win and we try everything to make that happen, which is hard enough".

Manchester City are now 4th on the log leaving them nine points behind Liverpool and one behind second-placed Leicester City and third-placed Chelsea. Then after that we will see how the situation is and use that situation. The whole world will be watching and I'm looking forward to it.

Raheem Sterling, who has not enjoyed many happy returns since leaving Anfield in 2015, continued his one-man mission to drag his side back into the game and when he cut in from the left it took a sliding Dejan Lovren to deflect over his shot.

"Maybe other people [who] are smarter than me can see it like this".

Liverpool never looked back thereafter and another counterattack play saw Mohammed Salah met a deft Andy Robertson's cross with a textbook header to double Liverpool's lead in the 13th minute.

"The big games are the ones you want to play, and if you want to compete for titles you have to be the best", he said.

'I'm a big believer of fan power - in the stadium.

"We don't think too much about what influence can be had on the rest of the season because that is influenced by the rest of the season, not one game".

"If he couldn't play it would change [things] because he's an important part of their game", he said.
