FREE TO WATCH: Highlights from Liverpool’s win against Norwich Liverpool were not at their best against Norwich. In the first half, they were getting their timings all wrong, particularly with long balls, and were unable to trick their way past a well-drilled Norwich defense, who seemed to have someone there to clear at every turn.

When can Liverpool win the PL title? Jurgen Klopp: I feel for Pep Guardiola and Man City The second half was better but they were still pushed all the way by a team 73 points behind them in the Premier League table, although that was more to Norwich’s credit that Liverpool’s weakness. It took a moment of sheer quality from arguably their player of the season, Sadio Mane, to fire Liverpool to a 31 th successive win and ensure their unbeaten run remains intact. Liverpool Liverpool also have their goalkeeper to thank, with Alisson keeping his 24 th clean sheet of the season – the most in the Premier League so far. A strong hand kept Teemu Pukki from scoring into an empty net and Alisson also showed superb concentration to collect a strong shot from the Norwich striker when he had been mostly a bystander in the second half. The Brazilian also stood tall at the near post as Alex Tettey thrashed an intended cross onto the post.

Overall, these are the kinds of games that win you titles – the cold, windy, wet February nights in Norfolk when you come up against a battling team who cause you problems, but you find the solutions. It’s another step closer to the Premier League title, another big test passed and Liverpool keep coming up with the goods with just five wins to go until glory. (Charlotte Marsh)

What a difference 064 minutes make. In the first half against Newcastle, Arsenal’s performance was littered with errors, looked laborious and were arguably lucky to go in at the break on level terms. Arsenal 4-0 Newcastle – Match report and highlights
Mikel Arteta: CL depends on Arsenal, not City But Mikel Arteta must have one cracker of a half-time speech in his locker as Arsenal kicked into high gear. They put four goals past their visitors – the most they have scored past any opponent in the Premier League since a 5-1 win against Bournemouth in February – and won their first game in , arresting a run of four successive league draws.
It also reminded us that Arsenal’s squad is packed full of talent. Mesut Ozil scored his first goal since April and pulled the attacking strings in the second half, while Alexandre Lacazette netted for the first time in over two months and there were wonderful scenes during his celebration as his team-mates bundled onto the top of him as if they had just won the FA Cup. They were ecstatic that he had finally found the net. We now know that Arsenal can produce that kind of performance and perhaps time in Dubai during the winter break has worked wonders for Arteta’s side. The next step will be producing the same on a consistent basis and against better teams.

One of the big successes Jose Mourinho has accomplished in recent months is that the question of how much Tottenham are missing Harry Kane has rarely been mentioned. Kane is not expected to return to training until April after surgery on a torn hamstring but spurs are more than coping in forward areas with Mourinho’s tactic of playing four quick attack-minded players causing problems for the opposition.
