Liverpool host Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday in an encounter which will have huge implications on this season's title race, the league leaders now six-points ahead of Pep Guardiola's side ahead of the latest instalment of what is a growing rivalry between the division's top two.

"It was a brilliant goal and from there I thought we took control of the game", said Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers.

The Blues suffered an early setback for the season with the transfer ban and not many predicted that they would be competing for the top four under new boss Frank Lampard.

The mood could not be more different across London at Tottenham.

It was no more than United deserved after they had a David McGoldrick goal ruled out for a fractional offside after a VAR check that took nearly four minutes to complete.


Spurs were given a fortuitous lead after halftime by Son Heung-min, but George Baldock's equaliser earned Sheffield United a 1-1 and extended their unbeaten run to five league games.

While Sheffield United sit proudly in the top six, Tottenham - Champions League finalists in June - are stuck in 12th spot, without a league win since September.

"We are very ambitious in our target, but we know we need time and patience", said Emery, who faces an anxious wait to see if his wish will be granted by the Arsenal board with a two-week global break coming up.

"He was a very important player during his football career".


"People say they enjoy watching us but we enjoy playing so much. I have no criticism of them in any shape or form".

Burnley had lost their previous three games but dominated on Saturday after Ashley Barnes poked home in the 11th minute.

"When you concede so many easy goals it does not help. I felt ready in myself and I'm proud of myself", said Abraham.

It got better for the home side with 15 minutes remaining as Vardy turned provider to set up Maddision, who sent a fine first-time finish into the bottom corner from the edge of the box.

Newcastle are now seven points clear of the drop zone as they came from behind to beat Bournemouth 2-1 at St James' Park thanks to goals from DeAndre Yedlin and Ciaran Clark.
