Liverpool were millimetres from a draw at the Etihad on Thursday night but it was to be Manchester City who ran out 2-1 winners in a match billed as a title decider for the two sides.

The Premier League’s bigwigs faced off in a hotly-anticipated tie that offered the visitors the chance to extend their lead at the top of the table.

But Liverpool’s 20-game unbeaten start to the season has come to an end and their rivals have closed the gap between them to just four points.

A key moment in the game came in the first half when Man City defender John Stones cleared the ball off the line, preventing an own goal by 1.12cm according to the goal line technology.

These were the best tweets and jokes after it finished Man City 2-1 Liverpool:

Liverpool can hardly consider themselves title favourites. They haven’t won a game this year. #MCILIV

Unless this game was on the tropic of capricorn at high noon the shadow is not going to be directly under the ball.

The ball has to cross the line, not the shadow.
