City cash in on Liverpool slip

City responded to their last Champions League outing by capitalizing on Liverpool’s slide to take a three-point lead at the top with three games remaining. Liverpool were held 1-1 at Anfield by Tottenham on Saturday before City brushed aside Newcastle on Sunday in an emphatic 5-0 victory at the Etihad.

The table seems softer for caramels

It was only their second league win on the road this season and their first in a row since September. It also took them out of the bottom three, one point above Burnley and Leeds, with a game in hand on two and four to go.

Leeds slipped into the bottom three for the first time since September after a 2-1 defeat at Arsenal. The Yorkshire club imploded at the Emirates in a chaotic first half, which saw them lose 2-0 inside 10 minutes before skipper Luke Ayling was sent off. Jesse Marsch’s 10 men rallied in the second half, saving a goal through Diego Llorente, and with games against Chelsea, Brighton and Brentford to come they will hope there will be more twists and turns in the fight to beat the decrease.
