Liverpool maintained top spot in the Premier League thanks to a hard-fought 2-1 win at home to Tottenham Hotspurs on Sunday. Roberto Firmino put the Reds in the lead on 16 minutes, heading home an Andrew Robertson cross from the left. Spurs pulled level with 20 minutes to play thanks to Lucas Moura but a Toby Alderweireld 90th minute own goal handed Liverpool all three points on the day.
The three points saw Jurgen Klopp’s side move onto 79 points, two ahead of second placed Man City who had earlier on Saturday, defeated Fulham 2-0 at Craven Cottage with the goals coming from Bernardo Silva and Sergio Aguero.
For Spurs, they remain third, level on points (61) with fourth placed Man United who scrapped past Watford 2-1 on Saturday.
The two (Spurs and United) are just a point ahead of Arsenal, who host Newcastle on Monday and Chelsea who defeated Cardiff 2-1 away from home on Sunday.
Elsewhere, Crystal Palace defeated Huddersfield 2-0, Leicester also dispatched Bournemouth by the same score line, Southampton were 1-0 winners away to Brighton, Everton beat West Ham 2-0 and Burnley also overcame Wolves 2-0.
