Premier League goals: Manchester City, Liverpool continue dominant run, Man United falters

The coming months may be pivotal for title race and in order to sustain in it, Sarri may look coming January window to bolster Chelsea's squad.

"I think we got a bit lucky".

While Arsenal are traditionally Spurs' biggest foes in London, Pochettino believes Chelsea's more recent success has made them a similarly important fixture for Tottenham supporters. I play for 90 minutes. "But we will have more chances to be a lot better".

Tottenham had lost four of their previous seven league meetings against the division's top-six elite here ahead of this match, but they were quick out of the blocks in this latest tussle against a side that headed into the contest a point above them.

We lost a lot of balls and, against Tottenham, it is very risky to lose a lot of balls in your half.

Salah opened the scoring on 67 minutes and Alexander-Arnold then fired in a superb free kick nine minutes later to double their lead.

He struggled to impose himself and was completely ruined for pace by Son during his brilliant third goal.

And despite having captain Jordan Henderson sent-off, Liverpool added a third through Firmino a minute from time. "It was a good game against a good side", Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said. The first game after the global break is the highly anticipated derby against Spurs and only three points will keep Chelsea in and around the title race.

The visitors were left with it all to do after just 16 minutes as a slow start saw them fall a couple of goals down to a Dele Alli header and Harry Kane's strike.

Alexander Mitrovic scored twice, including the victor, as Fulham responded to the arrival of manager Ranieri with a 3-2 win over fellow strugglers Southampton, ending a run of seven straight defeats. We need to have that at some point for the future.

Ranieri couldn't stop Fulham leaking goals in his first match in charge at Craven Cottage, but did secure a first win in 10 league games as Aleksandar Mitrovic scored twice to edge a five-goal thriller.

We'll have coverage of Manchester United's trip to out-of-form Southampton on December 1 before bringing you all the action from Vicarage Road on December 4 as Pep Guardiola's Manchester City take on Watford.
