That point at Newcastle might just come back to save Dean Smith’s @LCFC today. But they’ll need all three points against West Ham, and a favour from Bournemouth.

Sam Allardyce’s @LUFC need to beat a flagging Spurs team – and for results elsewhere to go their way – if they are to remain a Premier League club. A huge ask for Leeds.

Mount goal increases Anfield misery for Liverpool

Mason Mount scored a stunning winner to move Chelsea into the top four and inflict a fifth consecutive defeat at home for reigning champions Liverpool

The English midfielder scored the only goal of the game in the 42nd minute, cutting inside from the left and firing a low shot into the far corner.

It was his third goal in his last five league matches.

Liverpool barely threatened and their best chance was squandered by Sadio Mane, who missed his kick when played through by Mohamed Salah in the first half.

The leagueโ€™s leading scorer, Salah was then taken off just after the hour mark in a surprising change made by Klopp.

The hosts did not have a shot on target until the 84th minute which was a simple save for Edouard Mendy from Georginio Wijnaldumโ€™s weak header.


What it means

The win moved Chelsea into the top four while Liverpool are down in seventh, four points behind the West London club.


Stats

Liverpool had gone 68 home games unbeaten in the Premier League before their current demise โ€“ losing five on the trot to Burnley, Brighton, Manchester City Everton and Chelsea.
