With this goal, Liverpool are currently at the top of the table and two points clear of Manchester City. However, Guardiola’s side has played a game less and will be up against Burnley on Sunday.
The title race has grown intense with each passing week as both the teams have been relentlessly winning games through the business end of the season.
Liverpool faces a tough test next week in the Champions League as well, as the side takes on Barcelona in the first leg of the semifinal at Anfield.
