League leaders Liverpool’s unbeaten run in the Premier League finally came to an end after suffering a 2-1 defeat against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Thursday. In a tale of the battle between two title contenders of the season, Reds coach Jurgen Klopp’s celebration to the equaliser has caught the attention of fans and the video of it has gone viral on the internet.

The winner was scored by City’s German international Leroy Sane at the 72nd minute. The gap Liverpool and Manchester City has now been reduced to mere four points.
On a night which could have been decisive for Liverpool had they won, City clipped their wings to deter them from pushing further away. Now, it’s on. This match sets us up for the rest of the season – even a draw could be costly in this seemingly two-horse title race.
Both teams are eyeing something their team have never achieved – Defending champions Manchester City are aiming to retain a Premier league title for the first time in their history, while Liverpool are looking to win the Premier League title for the first time in history- despite having won 18 top-flight titles, they have never won it in the Premier League era.
