  • Brighton 0-1 Liverpool FT
  • Burnley 2-1 Fulham FT
  • Cardiff 0-0 Huddersfield FT
  • Crystal Palace 1-2 Watford FT
  • Leicester 1-2 Southampton FT

LIVERPOOL top an exciting Premier League bill as they look to continue their title march at Brighton.

It’s also a crucial day at the bottom of the table as Burnley take on Fulham and Cardiff host Huddersfield in massive relegation six-pointers.

Leicester are at home to Southampton and Watford travel to Crystal Palace in the other games.

Unfortunately these fixtures are not televised due to the UK’s 3pm blackout, but stick with us on SunSport for all the latest updates.

Another defeat for Palace means they’re now nervously looking over their shoulders in 14th but just four points off the relegation zone. But Watford’s fine victory at Selhurst Park sees Javi Garcia’s men move up to the giddy heights of seventh!

Don’t get too excited Javi. You’re still getting sacked at the end of the season.

It was also another terrific afternoon for Burnley who managed to beat Fulham 2-1 despite having NO shots on target. Two own goals did the business for the Clarets. For Claudio Ranieri it could be a case of ‘Dilly ding, dilly gone’. His Fulham side remain second bottom, now five points from safety and he’ll surely be dreading the predictable vote of confidence from his chairman.

Elsewhere, a superb away win for Southampton who played with ten men against Leicester for the whole of the second half. That win sees them climb out of the bottom three with Newcastle, who play at Chelsea in the 5.30pm kick off, falling into the drop zone.

Got a feeling Claude Puel’s name might be on a P45 by the time The Greatest Dancer starts.

So Liverpool go seven points clear at the top of the table after a hard fought win over Brighton. Liverpool were never at their best but Mo Salah’s penalty was enough to secure all three points in a gritty performance with makeshift centre half Fabinho putting in a decent shift.

The sort of performance that champions are made of? Expect Man City to have a say about that on Monday night when they take on Wolves.
