It was Pep Guardiola's side who emphatically emerged victorious with a 4-1 away win which put them five points clear at the top of the table with a game in hand.
Though he missed a penalty with a fairly disastrous attempt from the spot, Ilkay Gundogan (8.8) was once again sensational for City, and scored two of the four goals from midfield.
Gundogan was FootballCritic's star player for that game, but the headlines were ultimately stolen by Phil Foden (8.7), who put in the kind of performance that will go down as perhaps the most memorable of his short career so far.
With the game balanced at 0-0 following a dismal first half, Foden took it upon himself to open things up in forward areas, continually looking for that killer pass or dribble.
He would record a goal and an assist, with his finishing being slammed into the roof of the net past Alisson, who had a shocking day for Liverpool. He also won 10/15 duels.
Raheem Sterling (8.3) makes up the City trio who make it into the Team of the Week, having also got on the scoresheet.
The overall best performer of the weekend was Tottenham midfielder Pierre Emile Hojbjerg (9.3), who completed an outstanding 100/111 attempted passes and also had more touches of the ball than anyone in this round of fixtures with 121.
The attacking trio up top is made up by Miguel Almiron (8.8) and Allan Saint-Maximin (8.1) who finally gave Newcastle fans something to get excited about with their respective performances versus Southampton. Almiron scored two, and Saint-Maximin set up two.
James Ward-Prowse (8.1) was unlucky to be on the losing side in that fixture, as Newcastle won 3-2.
Jonny Evans (7.4), Liam Cooper (8.0), and Joachim Andersen (7.9) all make it into the backline after securing clean sheets for Leicester, Leeds, and Fulham respectively.
Arsenal suffered a damaging loss against Aston Villa, but new signing Maty Ryan (8.2) still impressed between the sticks, making seven saves.
