EPL results and standings 10 March: Firmino and Mane seal Liverpool win


EPL Fixtures and Results on 10 March *All times SAST.

Liverpool vs Burnley 14:00

Liverpool need to blow the cobwebs away fast when they meet Burnley at Anfield on Sunday.

The Reds slipped behind reigning champions Manchester City in the title race when they were held to a frustrating goalless draw in the Merseyside derby at Everton.

Jurgen Klopp's men have drawn four of their last six to see their lead of the top eroded by Pep Guardiola's relentless side.

Burnley have seen their own revival bite the dust in recent weeks.

Sean Dyche's side have lost consecutive games against Crystal Palace and Newcastle to remain imperiled at the wrong end of the EPL table.

Arsenal vs Manchester United 18:30

Fans will be braced for yet another high-octane encounter between the pair, who are separated by just a point and a place in the EPL table going into the weekend.

United are bang in form and have netted three times in three of their last four matches, most recently in a ding-dong, 3-2 Old Trafford defeat of battling Southampton.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still to taste domestic defeat on his return to the club as interim boss, even taking his side to within striking distance of faltering Tottenham in third.

Arsenal have also won three of their last four under Unai Emery.

The Gunners saw a winning run of three on the spin brought to a halt in the North London derby against Tottenham at Wembley last Saturday.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's late penalty was saved by Hugo Lloris to raise the tension even further in the scramble behind Manchester City and Liverpool at the summit.

Chelsea vs Wolves 16:05

Chelsea take their tentative return to Premier League form into a home clash with Wolves on Sunday.

The pair begin the weekend separated by 13 points but, rather more improbably, just the one place in the EPL table.

Maurizio Sarri is sitting a touch more comfortably in the Stamford Bridge hot seat after recording back-to-back wins over the Blues' London rivals.

A hard-fought 2-1 victory at Fulham last Sunday followed up a surprise 2-0 home win over stuttering Tottenham the previous week.

The Italian has steered his side to three wins in the last four, as they cling on in the race for fourth.

Wolves also returned to winning ways last weekend, as they continue their quest to be named Best of The Rest come May.

A breezy 2-0 success over Cardiff at Molineux ended a run of three games without a win under Nuno Espirito Santo, keeping the Black Country side seventh in the table.

EPL Results on 9 March Manchester City 3-1 Watford

The reigning champions fired an early warning shot when Riyad Mahrez's cross was headed just wide by David Silva.

Sergio Aguero then conspired to head wide from just six yards out as City continued to probe.

It was a moment of controvesy that saw Pep Guardiola's side take the lead, as Sterling's finish was ruled out for offside before, after an interminable discussion, referee Paul Tierney overturned the decision.

VAR would have fixed it.

Either way, Sterling tapped in his second within a couple of minutes to put his side well in charge.

They were out of sight by the hour mark, as the ex-Liverpool forward completed his treble with a shimmy in from the left and a classy finish beyond the grasp of Ben Foster in the Watford goal.

Gerard Deulofeu pulled one back 21 seconds after entering play as a substitute in the 66th minute.

But it only served to stiffen City's resolve, as they strengthened their title credentials at the top of the EPL.

Southampton 2-1 Tottenham

Harry Kane missed a pair of chances in the opening minutes, firing wide and then over before Maya Yoshida cleared against his own post.

Christian Eriksen then struck the crossbar with his free kick from the edge of the box.

The Saints' luck wasn't to last as Kane took delivery from Dele Alli before sneaking in a far-post finish on 26 minutes.

Spurs passed up plenty more chances and were punished on 77 minutes when Yan Valery scrambled in Stuart Armstrong's speculative cross.

And James Ward-Prowse fired in his second epic free kick in consecutive games three minutes later, burying his effort into the roof of the net.

Crystal Palace 1-2 Brighton

Glenn Murray was a late Seagulls selection to face his former club.

But the ex-Palace hit man was more than ready for action, firing in the 20th-minute opener for the visitors.

The Eagles went on to force the issue for the remainder of the first period, without finding the equalizer.

Luka Milivojevic made up for that on 50 minutes, though, nailing a trademark penalty after Andros Townsend took a tumble in the box.

Anthony Knockaert then produced a moment of class to restore the advantage, picking out the top corner with a bending effort from outside the area.
