City and Chelsea are in the same boat, and this latest result keeps the pressure on those two challengers.
Emery's decision to sacrifice Aubameyang rather than Lacazette with his substitutions was vindicated when the French worldwide kept his composure to brilliantly curl into the far corner after being forced wide by Alisson.
Joe Gomez says the "ridiculous" standard at the top of the Premier League this season means Liverpool can not afford any slip-ups in the title race. The one real hope for a title race worthy of the name this season is that Liverpool remains in touch with City despite being some way short of its best.
