Premier League: Man City win, while Liverpool defeat Spurs in dramatic matchup

Share

After a spirited 2-1 victory away at Fulham, Manchester City climbed to the top of the Premier League.
Following Wednesday's 4-1 home victory over Arsenal, City's eighth straight league victory put them one point ahead of the Gunners, who will host Chelsea on Tuesday.
On Sunday, Erling Haaland scored his season-high 50th goal from the penalty spot after Tim Ream fouled Julian Alvarez to give Pep Guardiola's team an early lead. Carlos Vinicius' goal in the 15th minute gave Fulham a chance to even the score.
A fantastic strike from beyond the box by Alvarez resulted in what ended up being the game-winning goal, according to a Xinhua report.
Newcastle United overcame a 1-0 deficit to defeat bottom-of-the-table Southampton at home, maintaining third place with a nine-point lead over fifth.
St. James' Park was surprised by Stuart Armstrong in the game's 41st minute, but Newcastle grabbed the lead when Callum Wilson equalised in the 54th. Theo Walcott didn't give them the lead until the 79th minute when he diverted a clearing into his own goal.
Two minutes later, Wilson earned the win with his second of the match, and the woodwork narrowly prevented a hat trick in the dying seconds.
Aston Villa's chances of qualifying for Europe were dashed by a Bruno Fernandes goal in the 39th minute as Manchester United tightened their grip on fourth.
Due to Tottenham's incredible comeback from 3-0 down to lose the game in the fourth minute of extra time, Liverpool took advantage of Villa's loss to move up to fifth following a wild 4-3 victory at home against Tottenham.
After just 15 minutes, Liverpool had a 3-0 lead thanks to goals from Curtis Jones, a recovered Luis Diaz, and Mohamed Salah's penalty.
Harry Kane pulled one back before halftime, and Son Heung-Min's much-improved second-half performance was rewarded in the 77th minute. Spurs may have dreaded a recurrence of last weekend's disaster at Newcastle.
In the 93rd minute, Richarlison's effort then deflected off of Alisson to tie the score. However, only one minute later, Lucas Moura's header found Diogo Jota, who rounded Hugo Lloris to give Liverpool the victory.
After a convincing 6-0 thrashing of Wolverhampton on Saturday, Brighton still has a chance to make it to Europe the following season. Pascal Gross, Deniz Undav, and Danny Welbeck all scored twice in a performance that, if anything, understated a thoroughly outmatched and outclassed foe.
Ivan Toney and Josh Dasilva scored late goals to offset Danilo's goal at the conclusion of the first half and give Brentford a 2-1 victory, causing sorrow for Nottingham Forest.
Toney scored in the 82nd minute, and Dasilva added a goal in stoppage time to prevent Forest from salvaging anything from the game they seemed to be leading.
With a thrilling 4-3 victory over West Ham, who still have work to do to avoid relegation, Crystal Palace increased their point total to 40.
In the ninth minute, Tomas Soucek gave West Ham the lead, but after 30 minutes, goals from Jordan Ayew, Wilfried Zaha, and Jeffrey Schlupp gave Palace a 3-1 advantage.
Michail Antonio scored for West Ham in the 35th minute, but a contentious penalty from Eberechi Eze in the 66th minute gave Palace a two-goal advantage once again. Nayef Aguerd made it 4-3, but Palace managed to hold on and earn the points.
After thrashing Leeds United 4-1, who are still in serious peril, Bournemouth's extraordinary comeback continues, and they now seem to be practically secure.
Despite Patrick Bamford giving Leeds hope in the 20th and 24th minutes, two goals from Jefferson Lerma sent Bournemouth on their way, and goals from Dominic Solanke and Antoine Semenyo in the second half completed the historic victory that moves Bournemouth 10 points clear of the bottom three.
