Man City lose Premier League unbeaten record at Chelsea to offer Liverpool FC hope in title race

Two things that have been disputed this season were proved irrefutably on Saturday: Manchester City are only human and the Premier League has a title race - and an exciting one at that.

How would City, behind only once in the Premier League this season, react to being displaced from their usual heights in both a match and the table?

But City are beatable, and Liverpool know if they outperform their rivals in the next 22 games then the title is theirs.

Liverpool's thumping victory over Bournemouth left Pep Guardiola's men in second place as they kicked off at Stamford Bridge before Chelsea rode the waves of attacks from the visitors and pounced when it mattered to snatch a 2-0 win.

Anyone hoping this could be a blueprint to crack the champions more regularly will be disappointed; there isn't another team that play as Chelsea do, and all of the top five have to travel to the Etihad in the second half of the season having collectively taken just five points out of a possible 12 from Guardiola's men.

The team that have been chased forlornly for a year and a half now have someone in front of them and what happens next promises to be anything but boring.

Just like at Watford in midweek, City will feel they should have been clear before conceding; N'Golo Kante's fierce strike into the roof of the net was seen as a smash-and-grab from the gleeful West Londoners after being pinned back in their own half for most of the opening 45 minutes.
