Reds reduce Man City gap to nine points

English Premier League

Crystal Palace 1-3 Liverpool

Liverpool kept their Premier League title hopes with a 3-1 win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Sunday afternoon.

Virgil van Dijk gave the Reds an eighth minute lead with a powerful header from Andy Robertson's corner. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain doubled the lead just after the half-hour mark when he finished off a flowing team move with Robertson once again providing the assist.

Odsonne Edouard pulled a goal back for the Eagles in the 55th minute but Fabinho made the result more comfortable from the penalty spot in the 89th minute.

Jurgen Klopp's side have now won 10 successive matches against Palace - a record that stretches back to 2017 as the Reds are now on 48 points, still nine behind leaders Manchester City, while Patrick Vieira's men are in 13th.

Arsenal 0-0 Burnley

Arsenal were left frustrated after being held to a 0-0 draw by Burnley at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners had 76 percent of possession, 20 shots and won 12 corners but failed to break down a typically stubborn Burnley defence. Mikel Arteta's side have now not scored in their last four matches as their miserable start to 2022 continues.

A crucial point for the bottom-of-the-table Clarets sees them move within two points of Watford, who have played two games more. The North Londoners, meanwhile, moved above territorial rivals Tottenham Hotspur into sixth position.

Leicester City 1-1 Brighton and Hove Albion

Danny Welbeck scored ten minutes from time to salvage a 1-1 draw for Brighton and Hove Albion away at Leicester City.

Patson Daka netted his fourth Premier League goal of the season just after half-time when he slammed home a rebound to give the Foxes the advantage.

But in the 82nd minute Welbeck met Neal Maupay's cross at the back post to head past Kasper Schmeichel and into the back of the net.

The Seagulls are in ninth, four points above Leicester one position below them, but having played two games more.
