Liverpool's fading hopes of securing Champions League qualification for next season suffered yet another blow as they were beaten 4-1 by a rampant Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

The Reds led briefly in the first half thanks to Mohamed Salah's clinical finish, but City levelled through Julian Alvarez, the stand-in for the injured Erling Haaland, before roaring away from their rivals after the break.

Kevin De Bruyne scored within a minute of the restart, and Ilkay Gundogan added another soon after, as Liverpool's fragile defence crumbled once more, leaving Jurgen Klopp bewildered.
