Who needs Erling Haaland?! Winners and losers as Julian Alvarez and Jack Grealish batter Liverpool's struggling defence to keep Man City's title push going

Manchester City are still very much standing in the Premier League title race, after keeping up the heat on leaders Arsenal with a 4-1 thrashing of Liverpool on Saturday.

Pep Guardiola's side trailed early on to Mohamed Salah's goal at the Etihad Stadium but, even without their injured top scorer Erling Haaland, hit back to equalise through Julian Alvarez before half-time, and then took control in ruthless fashion after the break.

Kevin De Bruyne netted within 60 seconds of the restart, and further goals from Ilkay Gundogan and the brilliant Jack Grealish condemned Liverpool to another chastening loss, against a side who were not so long ago their equals, but who now sit 22 points ahead of them in the table.
