Liverpool Move Closer To City, Arsenal Remain Winless In 2022

Crystal Palace 3-1 Liverpool

Liverpool moved to within nine points of Premier League leaders Manchester City with a 3-1 win over Crystal Palace.

The Reds raced into the lead after 10 minutes when Virgil van Dijk lost his marker before nodding home a corner from Andre Robertson.

The Reds managed to double their lead in the 32nd minute when Robertson's well-weighted cross found an un-marked Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who took one touch before firing into the far corner.

After a wasteful first half, Palace pulled a goal back 10 minutes into the second half when Jeffrey Schlupp slipped in Jean-Philippe Mateta who unselfishly teed up Odsonne Edouard for the simple finish.

Palace's hopes of a comeback were ended in the 88th minute when Liverpool were awarded a penalty after Video Assistant Review (VAR), which allowed Fabinho to slot home the third goal.

Arsenal 0-0 Burnley

Arsenal failed to reclaim fourth spot after playing to a goalless draw with Burnley at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners were without Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka, who were both suspended while Burnley were without striker Ashley Barnes who was injured.

Mikel's Arteta men were unable to find a breakthrough despite dominating for most of the 90 minutes.

The point sees the Gunners sit in sixth position while they are also yet to win a game in 2022, going five games without a victory.

Leicester City 1-1 Brighton & Hove Albion

Leicester City and Brighton and Hove Albion could not be separated after playing to a 1-1 draw at the King Power Stadium.

The Foxes got their reward shortly after the break when Patson Daka fired home from close range after Harvey Barnes' initial effort was saved.

However, Brighton would get their reward with nine minutes left on the clock courtesy of a strike from Danny Welbeck.
