Super Sunday hosted 4 live games with Liverpool v Man City the blockbuster as Liverpool looked to close the gap on leaders City whilst City looked to hammer home a big advantage before the European cup matches resume.
The game was tight from the start with both teams conceding few opportunities. It took some brilliance from former Anfield man Sterling to open up the Liverpool Defence. Sterling’s shot was well saved by Allison before Gundogan was first to the rebound to shoot home City’s advantage.
Salah then won a Penalty which he converted before City capitalized from some terrible defending and poor Allison mistakes to eventually win 4-1 with Foden the Man of the match.
The result now puts City 5 points clear of nearest Manchester United & with a game in hand, as the Premier league moves closer to the final 3rd of the season.

United then went ahead from a set piece before a stoppage time equalizer from in form Calvert-Lewin ensured the honours were even at Old Trafford.
