Premier League RESULTS: Liverpool edge closer to title, Manchester United claim bragging rights over Man City, Chelsea thrash Everton

Manchester United secured a 2-0 win over Man City to edge Liverpool closer to lifting the Premier League title.

Anthony Martial and Scott McTominay netted either side of half-time which means the Reds need to win just two more games to claim a first title in 30 years.

Jurgen Klopp’s side overcame their recent blip and a VAR call to get back to winning ways with a 2-1 triumph over Bournemouth at Anfield.

Having lost three of their last four games in all competitions, Kopites would have been fearing the worst when Callum Wilson netted a controversial opener inside ten minutes.

But goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane in eight first-half minutes turned the game on its head as Liverpool set a new record for consecutive top-flight wins at home with 22.

Meanwhile, Chelsea tightened their grip on a top-four place with a 4-0 win over Everton.

Mason Mount, Pedro, Willian and Olivier Giroud strikes gave Frank Lampard his biggest win as Chelsea boss.

The result leaves Everton in 12th place and six points off a European spot.

VAR came to Arsenal’s rescue late on as they snatched a 1-0 victory over West Ham to keep alive their slim hopes of a top four finish.

Alexandre Lacazette latched onto a square ball in the 78th-minute but Mesut Ozil was initially judged to be offside in the build-up.

However, following a lengthy check, VAR decided that Ozil was marginally onside, giving the Gunners a priceless three points.

They move to within five points of fourth-place Chelsea, who play Everton tomorrow, after sealing a third-consecutive top-flight victory for the first time since August last year.

The Gunners are just a point behind their north London rivals Tottenham, who could only manage a 1-1 draw at Burnley.

Chris Wood gave Sean Dyche’s men the lead but Dele Alli’s penalty ensured both sides would share the spoils.

However, Sheffield United shouldn’t be ruled out either as they sealed a win at Norwich’s expense.

Billy Sharp’s first-half header was enough to move the Blades to within two points of the top four in a game that also saw on-loan Blades keeper Dean Henderson make a stunning double save to deny the Canaries.

Wolves missed the opportunity to leapfrog Chelsea into fourth with a goalless draw at home to Brighton.

Elsewhere, VAR stole the show in Newcastle’s 1-0 win at Southampton.

The Magpies ended a run of four Premier League games without a goal as Allan Saint-Maximin netted a predatory goal late on.

But before that, Saints forward Moussa Djenepo was sent off for a late challenge following a VAR review and Newcastle saw Matt Ritchie’s VAR-awarded penalty saved.

Meanwhile, Watford failed to follow up their heroics against Liverpool last week and slumped to a 1-0 defeat at Crystal Palace.

Jordan Ayew netted a stunner in the first-half to move the Eagles further clear of the relegation zone.
