Manchester City fell to their first Premier League defeat of the season at the hands of Liverpool , who ran out 4-3 winners in a thrilling contest at Anfield this afternoon.

The hosts took the lead after just nine minutes as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain ‘s early strike set the tempo for an enthralling top-four clash, but City went into the break all square courtesy of Leroy Sane’s equaliser.

A spell of three goals in just eight minutes from Roberto Firmino , Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah put Jurgen Klopp’s side in complete control of the match, though, and they held on despite Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan giving City hope of a stunning comeback late on.

Earlier on Bournemouth came from behind to record their first ever win over Arsenal this afternoon as the Gunners suffered a damaging 2-1 defeat at the Vitality Stadium.

Hector Bellerin fired the visitors into a 52nd-minute lead, but goals from Callum Wilson and Jordon Ibe in the space of five minutes earned the Cherries an historic triumph.

Bournemouth’s victory lifts them four places up to 13th in the table, four points clear of the relegation zone.
