Liverpool stretch lead as Man City, Chelsea stumble

Manchester City now look in no state to stop it happening.

Alisson Becker has been sent off for Liverpool after bizarrely handling the ball outside the box.

Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports before Saturday's clash with Brighton and Hove Albion, Alisson said: "My aims are to win everything we play for".

While Mourinho has made a strong start at Spurs, helping the club register back-to-back Premier League wins for the first time since April, the fact his side have conceded four goals in two league games will have troubled him.

And Alisson has now explained why he feels that the Reds can win the title this season.

"Some people let the free-kick happen like that and then you look a little bit silly in that moment, but that's what you have to accept".

How City, deprived of star centre back Aymeric Laporte because of a long-term knee injury, would love a defender like Van Dijk to shore up their creaky backline that's also missing Vincent Kompany after the long-time captain's departure at the end of last season. "It's a hard one to take, conceding so late, having scored so late", defender John Stones said.

Miguel Almiron assisted Jetro Willems' equaliser after Raheem Sterling had put City ahead at St James' Park - the first assist the Paraguayan has registered from what was his 23rd chance created in the Premier League. Pep Guardiola's side lost 2-1 in January, which sparked a 14-match winning run that took City to the title - a point ahead of Liverpool.

City might have to go unbeaten for the rest of this season to even get close to threatening Liverpool this time round.

"In a lot of moments [it went well], always knowing about the very specific quality of Brighton; they don't care too much about the opponent they play".

The Merseyside outfit came within a whisker of winning the Premier League title last season but they ended up a single point behind Manchester City in the top-flight table.

Having taken charge with Tottenham in 14th place and in some disarray, Mourinho has led the team to fifth - and the Champions League qualification positions are suddenly in sight. Chelsea's response to going behind was disappointing and West Ham keeper David Martin, making his Premier League debut aged 33, was not overworked.

Aaron Cresswell scored West Ham's victor in the 47th minute to leave fourth-placed Chelsea six points ahead of Tottenham.
