Manchester City's 'Invincibles' bid ended in game 23

Liverpool produced a stunning performance to end Manchester City's hopes of mirroring the achievement of Arsenal's 'Invincibles'.

Manchester City saw their unbeaten run in this season's Premier League ended at the 23-game mark by Liverpool on Sunday.

Pep Guardiola's side had been touted by some as capable of going the entire season without suffering a defeat after dominating the first half of the campaign.

Manchester United, Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal were all brushed aside as City marched 15 points clear at the top of the table.

Jurgen Klopp's side were also thrashed 5-0 at the Etihad Stadium in September, but the reverse fixture proved a step too far for Guardiola's men as Liverpool held on in a 4-3 thriller.

Goals from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah helped Liverpool move 4-1 in front.

The visitors threatened a comeback with late goals from Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan, but it was not meant to be and Liverpool celebrated halting City's impressive run.

Despite the defeat, City – who have not won at Anfield in the Premier League since 2003 –  remain strong favourites for the title with their advantage at the summit remaining at 15 points, although United could cut that to 12 with victory over Stoke City at Old Trafford on Monday.
