Relentless Man City thrash Liverpool in brilliant display

Sports

Manchester City racked up their biggest win over Liverpool for 80 years to claim top spot in the Premier League – temporarily at least.

Two goals each for Gabriel Jesus and Leroy Sane , and another for Sergio Aguero demolished the Scousers, who haven’t been treated in this manner by the Blues since 1937 – when they lost 5-0 and 5-1 in the space of three days.
