Liverpool vs. Manchester City score, highlights: Reds blitz Citizens with four golazos

The top two scoring teams in the Premier League met on Sunday at Anfield, with Liverpool welcoming Manchester City in a match that was always going to have goals. The problem for first-place City was that Liverpool jumped out to an insurmountable lead.

Jurgen Klopp's team produced quite the statement, throttling City 4-3 on Sunday, snapping a 30-match Premier League unbeaten streak from Pep Guardiola's squad. The win brings the Reds into a three-way tie on points for second place with Manchester United and Chelsea, yet more importantly keeps the team three points clear of fifth place. 

Arsenal-reject Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain kick-started the Liverpool show nine minutes in by beating Ederson with a low, brilliant effort in the first half to open the scoring:

Fine goal. He went low, and it worked out to perfection. But it was probably the most unpleasant goal the team would score -- and that says something.

Then, after Leroy Sane brought City level in the first half, Liverpool went on to score three goals in 10 minutes. The first was Roerto Firmino's lovely chip in the 59th minute:

Sadio Mane tried to top Firmino's excellent chip by going upper corner a couple minutes later:

And not to be left out, the three-headed monster's final member, Mohamed Salah, scored from 40 yards out:

No Philippe Coutinho, no problem. The Reds destroy City in their most impressive result all year, and boy did they do it in style, giving Guardiola's team its first loss in league play this season.

Hit it, Mr. Liverpool
