Swansea damage Liverpool's title ambitions with 3-2 victory at Anfield

Sigurdsson proved Swansea's matchwinner as he pounced on a poor defensive clearance from Ragnar Klavan, the Iceland international securing Paul Clement's maiden win and Liverpool's first league loss at home since January 2016.

Adam Lallana and Tom Carroll had the best chances of a lacklustre opening half, but that all changed after the restart as the game burst into life.

Llorente struck his first goals away from the Liberty Stadium to put Swansea 2-0 ahead before Roberto Firmino lifted some of the gloom with his seventh in the league this season.

Plymouth Argyle 0 Liverpool 1: Rare Lucas goal sees Klopp's men through

The Premier League side had not lost any of their last 19 FA Cup games against teams from the fourth tier or lower, but they were pushed hard in a competitive clash at a packed Home Park.

Jurgen Klopp's men earned an early lead through an unexpected source as Lucas headed home a left-wing corner from compatriot Philippe Coutinho.

But the visitors were unable to convert their domination of the ball into further goals despite Daniel Sturridge, Coutinho and Divock Origi all being named in an attacking line-up, the latter seeing a late penalty saved. 

Ibrahimovic's late goal earns United 1-1 draw vs Liverpool, City lose 4-0 at Everton

Paul Pogba had looked like being the villain of the piece for United, but Ibrahimovic's header – his 10th goal in 10 top-flight games – prevented a damaging defeat.

James Milner's 27th-minute penalty and sixth league goal of the season – awarded after a handball from Pogba – had looked like it would prove to be the winner at Old Trafford.

EPL ROUND-UP: Arsenal rout Swansea to go third, Stoke and Burnley also secure full points

Goals from Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez, sandwiched between two deflected Alex Iwobi strikes — credited as own goals to Jack Cork and Kyle Naughton — put Arsenal in cruise control and sent Swansea tumbling to the bottom of the league.

Paul Clement, Swansea's third manager of a troubled season, had promised and the end of the defensive disarray which had marked the end of his predecessor Bob Bradley's short reign last month.

For the first half Swansea was as good as Clement's word as it fought tenaciously and stopped Arsenal having a meaningful sight of goal.

Kane's hat trick leads Tottenham to 4-0 win over West Brom

Ahead of the game against Tony Pulis' men, Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino cautioned his players against dropping off after a major win over a title rival – noting their seven-match winless run in all competitions that came on the back of a rampant victory against Manchester City in October.

That slump began with a 1-1 draw at West Brom, but the same opponents were ill-equipped to offer similar difficulties to a Spurs side whose speed of thought and foot put them a cut above on this occasion.

Mourinho: Ibrahimovic will be ready to face Liverpool

Ibrahimovic sat out Tuesday's first leg of the EFL Cup semi-final against Hull City at Old Trafford, where second-half goals from Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini secured a 2-0 win for United.

Veteran striker Ibrahimovic, who has 18 goals in 28 games across all competitions this season, was laid low through illness, although Mourinho does not foresee this being an issue when he attempts to take a chunk out of the five-point gap between Jurgen Klopp's second-place side and his own men in sixth on Sunday.

Tottenham beat Chelsea 2-0 to end 13-match EPL winning run

Alli scored twice for the third Spurs game in succession, converting Christian Eriksen crosses either side of half-time as Antonio Conte's league leaders tasted defeat for the first time since September.

Tottenham are up to third place, above Manchester City on goal difference, and now within seven points of Conte's men, who lead Liverpool by five.

Mauricio Pochettino's side is enjoying a purple patch of their own, having won five from five since losing at Manchester United on December 11 and scoring 15 times in the process.

Leicester reach agreement for Ndidi transfer

The Premier League champions confirmed that the midfielder has agreed personal terms on a five-and-a-half year deal that runs until June 2022.

Ndidi has already undergone his medical at the King Power Stadium and Leicester expect the formalities of his transfer to be completed later this week.

The 20-year-old has spent the past two seasons in the Belgian Pro League after joining Genk on his 18th birthday and helped the club finish top of Group F in the Europa League this season.

Mourinho: We're champs of bad calls

United won 2-0 at London Stadium through goals from Juan Mata and Zlatan Ibrahimovic to extend their run to six Premier League victories in a row and close to within a point of the top four.

The game turned on referee Mike Dean's decision to send off Sofiane Feghouli after only 15 minutes, with the Algeria winger earning a straight red card after he arrived later than Phil Jones in a bruising 50-50 challenge.

Leicester end winless streak with 1-0 win v West Ham

The Foxes completed a scarcely believable Premier League title triumph last season, but a run of just one win in nine league outings had left Claudio Ranieri's men just three points above the drop zone prior to Saturday's match.

However, the champions will enter 2017 with a welcome confidence boost, thanks to Slimani's thumping 20th-minute header from Marc Albrighton's teasing cross.
