Liverpool’s march to a first English league championship in 30 years is turning into a procession.

Manchester City certainly looks in no state to stop it happening.

The gap between the two main title contenders grew to a remarkable 11 points on Saturday, with a match-winning performance by Liverpool’s commanding center back, Virgil van Dijk, highlighting the difference between the teams.

Hours after City’s shaky defense conceded an 88th-minute equalizer in a 2-2 draw at Newcastle, Van Dijk ventured forward to power home two headed goals from free kicks and lead Liverpool to a 2-1 win over Brighton at Anfield.

Liverpool finished the match with 10 men after goalkeeper Alisson Becker was sent off in the 76th for handball outside the area, from which Brighton scored its goal at a free kick.
