Reds move eight points clear of City

Liverpool 2-1 Leicester City
 
Liverpool went eight points clear off Manchester City with a 2-1 win over Leicester City in the Premier League on Saturday.
 
Sadio Mane opened the deadlock five minutes to halftime, the Foxes then looked to steal a point with a penalty from James Maddison ten minutes from time.
 
James Milner though grabbed all the points with a penalty of their own right at the death, as the Reds march on to their elusive league crown.
 
Burnley 1-0 Everton
 
Burnley returned to winning ways with a slender 1-0 win at home to struggling Everton, who ended with ten men.
 
Seamus Coleman was sent packing in the 56th minute following a second bookable offence after knocking Dwight McNeil on the head.
 
The home side waited until the final minutes to seal all the points, as Jeff Hendrick lashed home from a corner as the Toffees went to sleep.
 
Norwich City 1-5 Aston Villa
 
Norwich City’s winless continued with a dismal 5-1 drubbing by Aston Villa at Carrow Road in a bottom-three contest.
 
Wesley put Villa ahead after 14 minutes and added a second on the half-hour mark. Jack Grealish made it three four minutes from halftime with Conor Hourihane adding a fourth on 61 minutes.
 
Douglas Luiz sealed their fifth with seven minutes to go, while Josip Drmic provided the consolation three minutes to the end, as the Canaries drop to the bottom-three slots.
 
Watford 0-0 Sheffield United
 
Watford remained the only side in the league without a win following a goalless draw at home to Sheffield United.
 
The result is the longest in the Premier League history that’s seen the side go without a win, propping up the table with three points thus far.
