Premier League - LIVE!

We’re right into the business end of the Premier League season after another midweek of European action, and we’ve got some big games in store this afternoon.

Trent Alexander-Arnold scored a stoppage-time winner as Liverpool fought back to snatch a 2-1 victory over Aston Villa and move provisionally into the Premier League's top four.Juergen Klopp's side collected their first home league win in 2021 after right back Alexander-Arnold scored with a curling effort from the edge of the box at the death. But Villa, against the run of play, found the breakthrough in the 43rd minute when John McGinn slotted a neat pass into striker Ollie Watkins, whose drilled effort slipped under Liverpool keeper Alisson's right arm.Liverpool responded almost immediately through Roberto Firmino but his goal was chalked off by VAR as Jota was adjudged to be marginally offside in the buildup. Yet the hosts deservedly equalised 12 minutes into the second half through a Salah header after left back Andy Robertson's initial strike was palmed away by Martinez and Alexander-Arnold's effort secured all three points.

Earlier on there was a shock result at the Etihad as ten-man Leeds United beat champions-elect Manchester City thanks to a double from Stuart Dallas, the latter coming in stoppage time on the counter-attack.
