Manchester City took one giant step towards pipping Liverpool to the Premier League title when they defeated Everton 3-2 at Goodison Park on Saturday.
The Reds were in the rare situation where they were fully in support of their city-rivals, as every Everton attack was roared on by the red half of Merseyside.
One Liverpool man in attendance at Goodison Park was former defender – and now Sky Sports pundit – Jamie Carragher.
The 36-year-old former England international defender ironically said at a convention last week that he could never go back to supporting Everton – the club he cheered for as a kid – but there he was, at the Goodison willing on the Toffees to victory.
Unfortunately for Carragher, Manchester City proved too strong on the day and broke their recent poor record at the venue with an entertaining comeback victory.
The victory moved Manuel Pellegrini’s men above the Reds on goal difference with just one week of the Premier League season remaining.
City are heavy favourites to win the title, and home wins against Aston Villa and West Ham United will see them crowned champions barring a miracle scenario where Liverpool claw back the Citizens’ superior goal difference.
