Manchester City now sit atop the Premier League, following a 2-0 win over Everton on Wednesday night.
The champions knew that three points in the fixture, would see them hit 62 points, but overtake Liverpool because of a superior goals difference.
Aymeric Laporte gave City the lead late in the second half, rising highest to meet David Silva’s free-kick.
Pep Guardiola’s men were only able to find a second goal deep into stoppage time, as Gabriel Jesus sealed the points at Goodison Park.
City host Chelsea next on Sunday at The Etihad.
