Chelsea moved nine points clear at the top of the Premier League after drawing 1-1 with title rivals Liverpool on Tuesday night.

Antonio Conte’s men had an eight-point lead over Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal going into their clash at Anfield, and they looked on course to make that 11 when David Luiz fired home a free-kick in the first half.

However, Jurgen Klopp’s men responded with a fine second half display, and Georginio Wijnaldum equalised 12 minutes after the break to secure the hosts a point, and end a run of three straight home defeats.

Yet, the Blues have actually extended their lead at the summit after Arsenal lost 2-1 at home to Watford, and Tottenham could only muster a 0-0 draw away at struggling Sunderland.

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City were the only side in the top six to win, as they thumped West Ham 4-0 at the London Stadium, while Manchester United were frustrated at Old Trafford by Marco Silva’s Hull, who picked up a credible 0-0 draw from their visit to the North West.

Seventh place Everton drew 1-1 at ninth place Stoke, while Tony Pulis’ West Brom picked up a point from their trip to Middlesbrough on Tuesday.

Sean Dyche’s Burnley recorded a ninth home win of the campaign with victory over champions Leicester, while both Swansea and Crystal Palace picked up vital wins at the bottom with successes over South Coast duo Southampton and Bournemouth respectively.
