Premier League leaders Liverpool have seen their lead at the top of the table trimmed to three points ahead of the visit of North London club Tottenham Hotspur in one of the week ten league games on Sunday.
The reigning European champions started the weekend with a six-point lead at the top of the EPL table, and it was trimmed to five points by Leicester City after their record-breaking win over Southampton on Friday night.
The Foxes trashed Southampton 9-0 away from home to set a new record for the biggest win on the road in the history of English top flight football.
Current Premier League champions Manchester City then beat newcomers Aston Villa 3-0 at home to cut the lead to three points for Liverpool ahead of their game with Spurs.

A win over Tottenham Hotspur at home will restore the six-point advantage for Liverpool.
Ahead of the Tottenham game, Liverpool boss is expected to revert back to his starting XI after the changes made for the thumping 4-0 win over Belgian side Genk away from home in the Champions League in midweek.
The only problem is that Joel Matip is doubtful for the Spurs game and the likes of Joe Gomez or Dejan Lovren could deputise for him.
Predicted Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson Becker; Trent Alexandre-Arnold, Dejan Lovren, Virgil Van Dijk, Andy Robertson; Jordan Henderson, Georginio Wijnaldum, Fabinho; Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.
