Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson revealed just how significant their 2-1 win over Liverpool was to them

Pep Guardiola’s side hosted Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium last week needing to avoid a third defeat in four games in order to prevent the gap between themselves and the leaders to increase to 10 points.

Goals from Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sane were enough to seal a 2-1 win for City and decrease their deficit to four points with Liverpool losing their first league game of the season.

“For us, it was a matter of life or death,” Ederson told Sky Sports.

“We knew the circumstances around the game – drawing or losing was not an option. We only contemplated winning, and we did a great game.

“It was our best game in the Premier League so far, and hopefully we will continue at the same level as of now.”

City will next play Wolves on Monday in the Premier League.
