Mo Salah spot-kick rescues lacklustre Liverpool at Brighton

Tony Khan engaged in a Twitter spat with an unhappy supporter

The strike was enough to put more daylight between the division's top two teams, although Pep Guardiola's City can close the gap back to four points when they face Wolves on Monday.

After a dour first half, Salah produced a moment of trademark individual skill to win the spot kick he converted five minutes into the second half after Pascal Gross fouled him following the Egyptian's neat footwork in the penalty area.

Injuries have left the Premier League leaders short at the back in recent weeks and Fabinho has been called upon to fill in at the centre of defence.

Despite Chelsea's overwhelming possession, Ciaran Clark equalised for Newcastle from a corner in the 40th minute, squeezing his header inside Kepa Arrizabalaga's right post. The Ireland worldwide drew his side level with a thumping header against Chelsea in the late kick-off.

In Saturday's early game Arsenal slumped to a 1-0 defeat at West Ham.

Own goals from Joe Bryan and Denis Odoi led Burnley to a third successive league win to ease their own relegation fears.

But he equalised midway through the second half before Tom Cleverley's volley into the top corner won the game for Watford with 16 minutes left.

West Ham coach Manuel Pellegrini believes Rice is becoming the "complete player".

Jürgen Klopp and Virgil van Dijk have today been named as the Premier League's Manager and Player of the Month for December.

"When we started [the season] and we had results, people thought the difference between the City or Rome home game in the Champions League a year ago was too big", Klopp said at his postmatch news conference.

Burnley recorded a fourth straight win in all competitions as they came from behind to beat Fulham 2-1 courtesy of a pair of own goals at Turf Moor.

The Foxes were handed a lifeline when Southampton defender Yan Valery was sent off shortly before the break, collecting his second yellow card after jumping in on Mark Albrighton.

Narrow wins, such as the 1-0 success secured at Brighton on Saturday, are not considered to fit the "heavy metal" brand Klopp is associated with though. On an average day, not a lot of football teams can win football games. Huddersfield remained bottom of the table following a goalless draw away to relegation-threatened Cardiff.
