The title race is hotter than ever and Manchester City is not ready to back down from Arsenal just yet. On Saturday, MCFC hosted Liverpool FC in a matchup that was supposed to be a back-and-forth contest.

That was the way things went down early on, with Mo Salah scoring the opening goal to put the visitors ahead. Then, City dominated the rest of the way to grab the three points.

Julian Alvarez tied things up in the first half, and then City scored three more times in the second half. Jack Grealish was a stud in this one, earning Man of the Match honors. This was a huge victory for City.
