Liverpool 6-0 Leeds

Liverpool closed the gap on Premier League leaders Manchester City to three points with a resounding 6-0 victory against Leeds at Anfield.

Before the interval, Mohamed Salah converted two penalties and helped Joel Matip, and the hosts continued their domination after the break, with Sadio Mane scoring twice and Virgil van Dijk heading home a sixth in stoppage time.

A match that promised goals delivered as Jurgen Klopp's side took advantage of the visitors' typical open style against elite opponents, with the first half played at a furious tempo.

Fabinho snatched the ball in midfield and found Luis Diaz, who fed Andy Robertson down the left wing with 15 minutes remaining. Stuart Dallas certainly stopped Salah's strong cross with his hand, and referee Michael Oliver pointed to the spot, with Salah sending Illan Meslier in the opposite direction.

After the half, Liverpool maintained their dominance, but the speed of the game slowed as Leeds tried to do some damage control, with Salah spurning a second chance to complete his hat-trick, sending his shot over the bar after being found by Curtis Jones.

Mane opened the scoring ten minutes from time. Jordan Henderson recovered a loose ball after a weak Meslier clearance and fed Salah, who delivered a magnificent reverse return pass for the England midfielder to sweep a searching ball across the box for Mane to score.

Burnley 1-0 Tottenham

Tottenham's confidence after their spectacular victory over Manchester City was quickly dashed, as Antonio Conte's team lost 1-0 to Burnley at Turf Moor.

For seasoned Spurs fans, the outcome was unsurprisingly foreseeable and will precipitate the latest in a series of extreme mood swings that have defined their season.

If the victory over City demonstrated the potential of this Spurs team under Conte, their performance at Turf Moor served as another reminder of how far they still have to go.

Centre-half With 20 minutes left, Ben Mee scored the winning goal, outmuscling the usually superb Cristian Romero to head home a long free-kick at the back post.

They failed to deliver any big punches on a disciplined and tenacious opponent for the second time this season, despite having just one victory in 19 prior home meetings.

Spurs concluded the first half with no shots on goal and just half-chances for Romero and Emerson Royal, with Son terribly out of sorts and Kane industrious but denied the type of space he had at the Etihad.
