Liverpool-Manchester City live stream: Watch Premier League game online

Two of the Premier League’s best sides will take the pitch Sunday when Liverpool and Manchester City meet at historic Anfield in a match with major championship ramifications.

Liverpool currently occupies the top spot in the PL table, and hasn’t lost a match through 11 contests this season.

Man City, meanwhile, has a firm grasp on the fourth spot, as manager Pep Guardiola and his squad are riding a three-game winning streak.

City, which beat Liverpool by one point atop the PL table last season, would love to halve the Reds' current six-point lead in the standings with a win.

Video shows fans' racist abuse in Manchester City-Manchester United

Cameras caught Manchester City supporters throwing objects toward and directing racist abuse at Manchester United players during Saturday's Manchester Derby.  

Manchester United midfielder Fred delayed taking a corner kick late in Saturday's 2-1 win over Manchester City while City supporters threw lighters and bottles, among other items, at the Brazilian. Video of the incident showed a fan appearing to make a monkey gesture in the direction of Fred and United teammate Jesse Lingard, both of whom are black. 

Manchester City issued a statement after the match, promising lifetime bans for any fans found guilty of racial abuse. 

"Manchester City FC are aware of a video circulating on social media which appears to show a supporter making racial gestures during the second half of the match against Manchester United this evening," the club said in a statement. "Officials from the Club are working with Greater Manchester Police in order to help them identify any individuals concerned and assist with their [inquiries].

"The Club are also working with GMP regarding an instance of objects being thrown onto the field of play. The Club operates a zero tolerance policy regarding discrimination of any kind, and anyone found guilty of racial abuse will be banned from the club for life."

Kick It Out, an organization focused on fighting "discrimination, inequality and exclusion" in English soccer, issued a statement offering support to United and City. 

Racism has long been in a problem in soccer, and Kick It Out found last year that reports of racial discrimination at professional and grassroots levels rose 43 percent. Elsewhere in the country Saturday, a League Two match was temporarily stopped after a Forest Green Rovers supporter racially abused a player for Scunthorpe United.

Marcus Rashford took advantage of a rare occurrence Saturday. 

VAR overturned referee Anthony Taylor's initial decision to not penalize Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva's foul on the Manchester United forward, and Rashford scored on the ensuing penalty to give the Red Devils a 1-0 lead over their intracity rivals Saturday at City of Manchester Stadium. 

Rashford nearly built upon his 23rd-minute penalty twice in the ensuing moments, missing wide on a counter-attack and hitting the crossbar soon after.

But six minutes after Rashford's goal, Anthony Martial doubled United's advantage.

City needed to win Saturday to keep their increasingly slim English Premier League title hopes alive.

That much, like VAR's decision to award United a penalty Saturday, was clear and obvious: The Cityzens dropped 14 points back of first-place Liverpool thanks to Saturday's loss.
