Leaders Arsenal dropped points for a third successive match as the pendulum swung Manchester City's way in the race for the title following this six-goal thriller with bottom club Southampton.

Saints opened the scoring after only 28 seconds, when Carlos Alcaraz capitalised on an Aaron Ramsdale error for the second-fastest goal of the season.

Theo Walcott put Southampton 2-0 up against his former club on 14 minutes, before Gabriel Martinelli pulled one back for Mikel Arteta's side shortly after.

Duje Caleta-Car restored Southampton's two-goal cushion in the second half. Arsenal gave themselves hope with two goals in the final two minutes from Martin Odegaard and Bukayo Saka but could not claim a winner.

A third draw in a row for Arsenal put the destiny of the title in Man City's hands.

Having been issued with a refund by the players after a 6-1 defeat at Newcastle United the week before, Tottenham Hotspur supporters would have been forgiven to expect more money coming their way as Liverpool roared into a 3-0 lead within 15 minutes at Anfield.

Curtis Jones opened the scoring in the third minute from Trent Alexander-Arnold's cross, before Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah, converting a penalty after missing his previous two, put Liverpool in the driving seat against their top-six rivals.

Harry Kane pulled a goal back before half-time to give Spurs a glimmer of hope. And the comeback seemed within reach when with just under 15 minutes remaining, Son Heung-min struck to set up a grandstand finish.

Richarlison levelled in the third minute of stoppage time with his first Premier League goal for Spurs, but the former Everton striker's wild celebrations were cut short when, straight from the kick-off, Diogo Jota capitalised on Lucas Moura's poor back-pass to finish past Fraser Forster and send Anfield into raptures.

The victory moved Liverpool above Spurs into fifth, and manager Jurgen Klopp's joy at the winner was tempered by a hamstring injury sprinting along the touchline in celebration.
