Liverpool defeated Manchester City 1-0
Mohamed Salah's persistence paid off as he scored in Liverpool's crucial 1-0 win over second-placed Manchester City.
Salah 76th-minute strike came soon after he missed a one-on-one with City goalkeeper Ederson.
But the forward maintained his cool to secure a statement victory for Jurgen Klopp's side.
City started with their usual dominance in possession and forced some early openings which Joe Gomez dealt with adequately.
A more resolute-looking Liverpool did manage to forge a couple of chances but failed to test Ederson.
