Liam Gallagher puts 'VAR' message on the big screens at his gig after Liverpool v Man City

MTV EMAs 2019 - Show

The international break means Liverpool's 3-1 win over Manchester City seems a lifetime ago. 

Even so, the fallout from that dramatic afternoon at Anfield hasn't been forgotten in a hurry.

Fabinho, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane scored the goals, with Bernardo Silva hitting one in reply. 

It was the Trent Alexander-Arnold handball that really irked the visitors, though, with Pep Guardiola completely losing his head at full-time. 

The Catalan sarcastically shook hands with the referee and thanked all the officials, while earlier he had been seen screaming into the sky in despair. It wasn't his finest hour, in truth. 

Little wonder, when the result leaves the champions nine points off the top spot and trailing all the way down in fourth. 

Not only will it take City a long time to claw back that ground, their fans won't be getting over it any time soon either. 

Take Liam Gallagher, for example, alongside brother Noel the most famous Citizen around. 

Nearly two weeks on and the former lead singer of Oasis, an organisation with a rather different trajectory to Manchester City over the past decade, lit up the screens at his solo gig with the words: 'VAR PENALTY'.

Glad to see they've moved on - who do you think he hates more these days, Noel or Alexander-Arnold? 

They ought to be used to it given that City haven't won away to Liverpool since 2003.

Realistically, City need to pick themselves up again as they face Chelsea at 17.30 on Saturday and can afford to drop very few points between now and the end of the season.

Their crown is fast slipping away and they need to get back on track quickly if they're to have any chance of halting the Reds' seemingly inexorable march towards the title.
