Image source: Premier League

Liverpool moved eight points clear at the top of the Premier League and nine above Manchester City with a thrilling 3-1 victory over the reigning champions.

The Reds opened the scoring through Fabinho in just the sixth minute. The goal came around 20 seconds after Trent Alexander-Arnold clearly handled the ball in his own area, prompting Man City players to appeal to the referee.

VAR went back to the check on the incident, but the goal stood.

Guardiola wasn’t happy about this and demanded to know why the spot-kick wasn’t awarded at the half time break.

Mohamed Salah made it two seven minutes later before Sadio Mane netted a header after the break to make it three.

Here is what Guardiola said to the referee’s following the game.
