Manchester City responded to losing their top spot earlier in the day to Liverpool once more with a 4-0 victory at Leeds United to return to the No 1 slot, as the top two edged past in-form opposition to continue their exciting battle for the Premier League title.
A much-changed Liverpool team had gone above Man City after ending Newcastle United's run of four straight victories with a hard-fought 1-0 win at St James' Park thanks to Naby Keita's first-half goal.
That made it 40 points out of a possible 42 in the Premier League for Jurgen Klopp's team as they chase an unprecedented quadruple.
But, despite facing a Leeds side on a five-match unbeaten run, Pep Guardiola's team struck early at Elland Road through Rodri's header and second-half goals from Nathan Ake, Gabriel Jesus and Fernandinho sealed the victory that keeps City one point ahead of their title rivals.
City's margin of victory also reduced Liverpool's advantage in goal difference to just one as well, with just four matches each to go.
Such an order of fixtures is favourable to Liverpool, according to former Leeds forward Jermaine Beckford.
"I would prefer to play first to get the points on the board, hopefully, and put the pressure on Man City," Beckford said.
Norwich go down
It is a record sixth relegation from the Premier League for the Canaries.
They came from behind to claim victory thanks to two second-half goals in fewer than four minutes.
It meant that Burnley have won 10 points from a possible 12 under Dyche's replacement Mike Jackson.
Everton will hope to close the gap on Burnley and Leeds when they host Chelsea on Sunday, one of two matches they have in hand on both their relegation rivals.
Eyes on Sunday will also turn towards the race to finish fourth as the two leading contenders, Arsenal and Spurs, are in action.
