Manchester City's magnificent unbeaten run in the Premier League came to an end of Sunday as Liverpool won their titanic tussle 4-3.

City manager Pep Guardiola insisted his side were always going to lose at some point and the league leaders are still well on course to win the title.

It was a more encouraging round of fixtures for rivals Tottenham Hotspur after thrashing Everton to stay hot on the heels of the top four, while it was another frustrating goalless draw for champions Chelsea.

In this week's Extra Time podcast, Jon Turner, Steve Luckings and Graham Caygill discuss all the big talking points from the most recent Premier League weekend.
