Liverpool emerged from their recent mini-slump to get their English Premier League (EPL) title procession back on track with a 2-1 victory over Bournemouth at Anfield on Saturday.
Their 22nd successive top-flight win at home, breaking the English record set by Bill Shankly’s side in 1972, was sealed by goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.
But this was after Callum Wilson had given Bournemouth a shock lead.
The win restored Liverpool’s 25-point lead over Manchester City at the top of the table.
Three more wins are all that are now required to rubber-stamp their first title for 30 years.
Tottenham Hotspur avoided a third straight defeat in the league with a Dele Alli penalty kick earning them a 1-1 draw at Burnley.
Alli scored after New Zealand forward Chris Wood had given the Clarets an early lead.
The result did little to help the bid by Jose Mourinho’s side for 2020/2021 UEFA Champions League qualification however, leaving Spurs in eighth place, four points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
