Liverpool kept the pressure on Premier League leaders Chelsea with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Manchester City at Anfield.

Needing a win to reduce the huge nine-point gap that Chelsea had opened up after their win earlier, the Reds began in an emphatic manner as Georginio Wijnaldum fired them to lead after only eight minutes. The Netherlands international headed home a brilliant cross from Adam Lallana from the left wing and the goal proved enough for them to walk away with all the three points. However, the win was not easy as City relentlessly tried to find an equaliser in the second half. Pep Guardiola’s side was a much better side after the break but Jurgen Klopp’s side regained their composure as the half wore on and held on to the slender one-goal lead.

This was Liverpool’s fourth win in a row and now they are unbeaten in their last 17 Premier League games at home (W11 D6). On the other hand, the loss has left City 10 points behind Chelsea in the title race and they can drop to fourth place if Arsenal win against Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Let us see how the Twitterati reacted to the high voltage clash:
