There are seven Premier League fixtures to enjoy throughout the day on Saturday. Keep checking back for updates.
Manchester City v Liverpool
Scorers: Álvarez 27′, De Bruyne 46′, Gündoğan 53′; Salah 16′
City were without star striker Erling Haaland due to a groin issue but didn’t show too many signs of missing him in the early going after a dominant start.
However, on 16 minutes, the visitors struck for the opener against the run of play when Diogo Jota raced clear and flicked back for the onrushing Mo Salah to slam into the corner of the net, with the goal being allowed to stand following a very tight VAR check.
The lead lasted just 10 minutes before City pulled level when Jack Grealish came up big at both ends of the park, first tracking back to put in a superb last-ditch block to prevent Salah squaring for a tap-in before assisting himself at the other to roll across goal for Julián Álvarez to score from close range.
Within 50 second of the second half starting, City turned the game on its head when Álvarez picked out Mahrez with an excellent sweeping crossfield pass and he centred for Kevin De Bruyne to net from close range.
The pass saw Mahrez register his 56th Premier League assist – more than any other African player in the history of the competition.
It didn’t take long for City to add a third which arrived through Ilkay Gündoğan who pounced on a loose ball inside the area to net from close range after Trent Alexander-Arnold had blocked an effort from Álvarez.
