It was a battle of tactics as two of the best managers in the world went into loggerheads last night, December 31 at the Anfield.
Liverpool have 43 points from 19 matches 4 more than third-placed Manchester City and 6 less than table toppers Chelsea FC.
The Blues also registered their 13th win on the trot as they beat Stoke City 4-2 to equal Arsenal's winning record. They are just a win away to create a new record in the English Premier League.
Manchester United came back from behind to beat relegation-threatened Middlesbrough 2-1. They were behind until 85th minute.
Anthony Martial scored the equaliser and Paul Pogba netted the winner within a minute to seal 3 points for the Red Devils.
On Sunday, January 1, North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham faced Crystal Palace and Watford respectively.
While Spurs thrashed Watford 4-1 to retain their fifth position in the league table, Arsenal rode on Olivier Giroud's heroics to move up to the third position. The French striker scored the opening goal in an acrobatic scorpion style.
