Best Tweets: Stones ZERO to HERO in one second!

Liverpool came within a whisker of getting their evening off to a flawless start in their Massive Title Decider (©Sky Sports) against Man City at the Etihad.

He played a quick one-two with Roberto Firmino before he was in a unsafe space, running at City's back line.

Following some neat combination play, Liverpool's Sadio Mane struck the post.

Thankfully, Stones made an astounding recovery tackle to prevent Mohamed Salah from bundling the ball across the line...

But Wright said more emphasis should be placed on consistent moderate consumption throughout the year. Richard Piper, the CEO of the group, says Dry January "can change lives" in a positive way.

Unfortunately for Mane his shot ricocheted off the left upright, though City were lucky they didn't concede after the intial shot when John Stones cleared the ball off of Ederson and the ball nearly went in for an own goal.

Replays later showed just how close the ball had been to crossing the line, with City saved by centimetres and then scoring the opener themselves through Sergio Aguero just before half time.

This would have gone down in history as one of the most hilarious but vital own goals.
