Arsenal- Cropped

Sergio Aguero had the chance to grab the most unlikely of equalizers for the visitors in the final minute, but his header found the side of the net, with Liverpool holding on for a vital win and simultaneously ending Manchester City's unbeaten Premier League streak.

Goals from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah were enough for Liverpool to triumph over City.

City threatened an amazing comeback after goals by Bernardo Silva, in the 84th, and Ilkay Gundogan, in the first minute of stoppage time, but Liverpool held on in a nervy finale.

"Our first defeat. The bad news is we lost so congratulations to Liverpool for their performance", Guardiola said in his post-match interview.

Liverpool inflicted a first Premier League defeat of the season upon Manchester City, winning 4-3 in a thriller at Anfield. We have a lot of games to win to be champions and will try for the next game against Newcastle. But, according to Opta, in the space of seven minutes, City made as many errors leading to goals as they had in every previous away game of the campaign combined.

Firmino moved to Liverpool FC from Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim in the 2015 summer transfer window.

Sunday provided his biggest test yet, with league leaders Manchester City coming to Anfield having yet to lose this season. But for the time being, they hold a unique distinction. "After that we lost our control and we become involved in the environment at Anfield".

Klopp insisted he "was not worried" about City's fightback, as his focus was on the positives in his own side's display.

"After the second goal they scored the third and fourth and after that it's always a complicated recovery".

The very same thing happened at his previous job at Borrussia Dortmund, as it was over two years before the German started delivering trophies there.

"It was a little bit nerve-wracking but thankfully it didn't go in".

It forced an apology to NBC's American audience before Klopp added: 'I thought in America it's OK and in England it's not'.

"In fact I think I saw the Brazilian assume far more responsibility in the absence of his former team-mate than I have seen before". Arsenal's undefeated Premier League season in 2003-04 won't be emulated for at least another year.

Liverpool shocked City with their rampant attack and just like that, the unbeaten streak of Pep Guardiola was broken.

"In the second half, they could not make two or three passes in a row, but in 10, 15 minutes, it went from 1-1 to 4-1, and after that it was a complicated recovery". And the Kop faithful were crowing even louder when Oxlade-Chamberlain put Liverpool ahead in the ninth minute.
