The title race is like that ball rolling across the goal line a blade of grass from leaning one way or the other

Nothing captures the essence of Manchester City against Liverpool better than the image of Diogo Jota launching himself to try and intercept Ederson’s pass along his own goal line to Aymeric Laporte.

In this extraordinary moment, with Ederson seemingly unfazed by the ball rolling into the net and Jota charging in, you see the contrast in styles and also why each team is the other’s Kryptonite. City’s nervous passing and control are just the kind of football to defeat Liverpool, as they demonstrated in a brilliant first half; and Liverpool’s relentless pressing is the only way to seriously threaten City. Rewind a few seconds before Ederson’s apparent escape and the point is underlined. Kyle Walker had been closed by Thiago Alcantara and Jota had gotten close to Rodri, leaving Walker with no choice but to play back against Ederson.
