Last season, Liverpool welcomed Manchester City to Anfield.
A win meant that Liverpool would go nine points clear of the Citizens in early November.
Liverpool won the Premier League match 3-1. Fabinho opened the scoring for the Reds.
We retweeted that particular goal on our Twitter feed recently. As a result, some Liverpool supporters reflected on Fabinho’s goal.
Probably the goal that won Liverpool the title

ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
Liverpool’s win against Manchester City early in the 2019-20 season was certainly a big moment.
One Liverpool supporter claimed that Fabinho’s goal “probably” won the Reds the Premier League title last season.
We agree that Fabinho’s goal was a big moment in the 2019-20 season. It ultimately put Liverpool on the right path to secure three points against the Citizens on the night.
Manchester City had won back-to-back Premier League titles leading into the 2019-20 season, so they were the team Liverpool had to overtake.
The win put Liverpool nine points clear, and we were only two months into the season. Manchester City were on the back foot from the moment Liverpool beat them in early November.
In regards to the 2020-21 Premier League season, Liverpool’s first encounter against Manchester City will on the 7th of November at the Etihad Stadium.
The Reds then welcome the Citizens to Anfield on the 6th of February.
