Klopp still a winner as City fight for their title

Natalie Sawyer brings you The Game podcast slightly later than usual – to take in the biggest game of the season so far with Henry Winter, Alyson Rudd and Alan Smith.

Champions Manchester City inflict a first Premier League defeat of the season on league leaders Liverpool at the Etihad, closing the gap at the top to 4 points. Does Jurgen Klopp take encouragement from the level of performance it took from City to beat them?

Pep Guardiola’s men show their guts and intensity, a performance typified by the ‘dog of war’ Bernardo Silva. Will City’s experience prove crucial in this title race?

Speaking of Silva, Marco is struggling across Merseyside right now as Everton have won just 1 of their last 8. Does the Portuguese coach remain a mystery to us in English football?

And Maurizio Sarri has suggested he would like a new striker at Chelsea in January. Meanwhile Christian Pulisic has been signed from Borussia Dortmund, apparently without too much input from the Chelsea manager. Are there cynical reasons behind the signing?
