Liverpool hit struggling Leeds for six

English Premier League

Liverpool 6-0 Leeds United

Liverpool cut Manchester City's lead at the top of the Premier League standings to three points with a 6-0 humiliation of Leeds United at Anfield on Wednesday evening.

Jurgnen Klopp made five changes to their side from their win over Norwich last time out as Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andy Robertson, Thiago Alcantara, Fabinho and Curtis Jones came into the side.

The hosts got off to the perfect start after racing into a three-goal lead in the first thanks to two penalties from Mohamed Salah and a solitary goal from Joel Matip.

After a lull in the second half, the Reds ramped up the tempo in the final 10 minutes as Sadio Mane netted a quick-fire brace to make it 5-0.

Virgil van Dijk had the final say on the night after bagging the home side's sixth goal in the 93rd minute, as the Reds move within three points of Man City.

Here are the lowest-paid stars at every Premier League club this season

Burnley 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur's top-four ambitions took a knock after suffering a defeat to resurgent Burnley.

Despite claiming the scalp of Manchester City over the weekend, Antonio Conte's men were unable to maintain that form as Ben Mee's 71st minute goal sealed maximum points for Burnley.

The loss leaves Spurs in eighth spot, seven points behind fourth-placed Manchester United while Burnley have moved up to 18th spot.

Watford 1-4 Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace proved too strong for struggling Watford after romping to a 4-1 win at Vicarage Road on Wednesday evening.

Jean-Philippe Mateta opened the scoring for Palace on 15 minutes before Moussa Sissoko equalised three minutes later.

Conor Gallager restored Palace's lead in the 42nd minute before Wilfried Zaha bagged a brace in the final five minutes to seal a big win.
