The Blues are top with 33 points after 14 rounds of matches – a point above second-placed City.

At Goodison Park, Mohamed Salah’s brace after a Jordan Henderson’s strike, and Diogo Jota’s late finish helped Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool to their ninth Premier League win this season. They are in third place – a point adrift of City and two below leaders Chelsea.

Meanwhile, Everton continue to endure miserable outings. The 4-1 defeat by Liverpool was their sixth loss in their last eight league games. They are on an eight-game winless run and are just five points above the relegation zone.
