Only Manchester City in 2017 – 18 have amassed as many points as Liverpool’s current tally of (after) Premier League games

Leaders Liverpool extended their advantage at the top of the Premier League to 11 points with victory over Brighton, as champions Manchester City surrendered further points in the title race.

Center-back Virgil van Dijk headed in twice in six first-half minutes for Jurgen Klopp’s side, but their day was soured somewhat as goalkeeper Alisson received a straight red card for handling outside the area and Lewis Dunk caught the hosts off- guard with the resulting free-kick 11 minutes from time.

In Saturday’s early kick- off at St James’ Park, Jonjo Shelvey’s emphatic late strike earned Newcastle a 2-2 draw against Pep Guardiola’s City.

Kevin de Bruyne’s equally brilliant 82 nd-minute hit appeared to have salvaged victory after Jetro Willems had cancelled out Raheem Sterling’s opener, but Shelvey’s equaliser sees Manchester City move above Leicester to second on goals scored.

The Foxes can reduce Liverpool’s lead to eight points when they host Everton on Sunday (16: (GMT).

Jose Mourinho’s winning start to his reign as Tottenham manager continued as Dele Alli scored twice in Spurs’ 3-2 home win against Bou rnemouth.

A revitalized Alli struck either side of the interval for the hosts, who also had a Davinson Sanchez goal ruled out by the video assistant referee for handball.

Moussa Sissoko added Tottenham’s third to seal the win, before Harry Wilson responded with a late double for the visitors.

Meanwhile, under pressure West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini saw his side edge their west London derby against fourth-placed Chelsea.

Left-back Aaron Cresswell scored the only goal three minutes after half-time, as Pellegrini’s side ended their seven-game winless run in the league despite Michail Antonio having a goal ruled out by VAR.

Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace left Turf Moor with all three points as goals from Wilfried Zaha and Jeffrey Schlupp sunk Burnley.

Zaha’s well-taken finish in first-half injury-time was added to by Schlupp in the closing stages, with Burnley goalkee per Nick Pope again beaten at his near post.

The Premier League’s bottom two sides, Southampton and Watford, go head-to-head at St Mary’s in Saturday’s late kick-off (17: 30).

Elsewhere on Sunday, interim manager Freddie Ljungberg takes charge of Arsenal for the first time at Norwich (14: 00) and Wolves face Sheffield United at the same time. Manchester United then host Aston Villa (16: 30.
