Liverpool’s lead lasted only two and a half hours. Manchester City is chasing again in the 31st round of the English Premier League with a 2-0 victory over Burnley FC.
Kevin De Bruyne hit the ice cold after just five minutes, and after 20 minutes Ilkay Gundogan made the initial decision. The German shot a skewed ball from close range.
Although the “Citizens” are pressing for a 3-0 lead after changing sides with possession of the ball, it is still with Cancelo’s shot at the pole in the final stage (80).
City are now one point away from their biggest title rivals, while the gap against Chelsea continues to widen after embarrassment at home against Brentford.
Hasenhüttl stops the losing streak
Southampton, led by Ralph Hessenhuttl, can at least end their losing streak with a 1-1 draw with Leeds United. Ward Prause (49 minutes) tied after Harrison (29).
Wolverhampton (the seventh) presses the European Cup positions in the middle of the field with a 2-1 victory over Aston Villa (9), but he has already played two games more than his rivals, one point behind Manchester United and two behind Tottenham.
Bottom side Norwich City got a point again after a long 0-0 draw with Brighton and Hove Albion, but benefited from a missed penalty (Mopay / 29).
