Liverpool's Premier League title defence suffered a damaging blow as Brighton earned a shock 1-0 win at Anfield while Manchester City moved three points clear at the top with a 2-0 victory against Burnley on Wednesday.

Jurgen Klopp's side paid the price for a sloppy display as Steven Alzate's second half strike gave struggling Brighton a memorable success at the expense of the injury-hit champions.

Leicester beat struggling Fulham 2-0 to improve their superb away league record.

Leicester now have eight wins out of 11 on the road.

Jesse Lingard scored twice on his West Ham debut to clinch a 3-1 victory at Aston Villa.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Gylfi Sigurdsson scored in Everton's 2-1 victory at Leeds, the first time the Toffees have won four successive away league games since 1985.
