However, Jurgen Klopp’s men are now enthusiastic and could take the game and narrow the gap to just three points, setting the stage for the dramatic finale of the season. In addition to Citi’s pain, it was Kane who opened the title battle a lot after the champion failed in four bids to sign him in the closed season.
Tottenham lost in the last three games, but took the lead when Dejan Kulusevski made his first start with a cool finish after Kane and Son Heung-min opened the city defense in the 4th minute. Citi caught up in the 33rd minute thanks to a recent mistake by Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris turning Raheem Sterling’s cross to Ilkay Gundoan. Antonio Conte’s team came out 59 minutes later when England captain Kane ran at the perfect time to finish his son’s cross. Cristian Romero appeared to have left prison with a 90-minute penalty for Riyad Mahrez after blocking Bernardo Shiva’s shot by hand. However, Kane re-entered the stoptime with a header from Kulusevski’s cross, giving City his first defeat in a 16-league match dating back to a 2-0 home loss against Crystal Palace on October 30th.
In Anfield, Klopp made seven changes from the side that won the Champions League Inter Milan 2-0 in the middle of the week, paying almost a high price when the Canary Islands took the surprise lead in Anfield. .. Milot Rashica’s shot missed Joel Matip in the third minute of the second half.
However, Liverpool’s Sadio Mané and Salah’s deadly duo turned the game around with two goals in three minutes of space.

Diaz then had a clever finish on either of two strike partners who were proud to lift the ball over the gun from Jordan Henderson’s defensive splitting pass. “There are no complicated issues. It’s special when you win,” Klopp said of Liverpool’s return.
Chelsea’s 1-0 victory at Crystal Palace may have been too late to start the title challenge. However, Hakim Ziyech put Marcos Alonso’s cross into the home a minute later, and they solidified their position in the top four.
Arsenal finished fourth in the Champions League in the final match as Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka beat Brentford 2-1. The need for a Gunners goal scorer reappeared when Mikel Arteta’s men repelled the bees from the first whistle, until Smith Rowe fired at the far corner in the second minute to break the deadlock. I had to wait. Saka then made a brilliant effort away from the post 11 minutes before Christian Nogard recorded comfort deep in the stoptime.
West Ham’s bid for the Top 4 was a hit again as Newcastle drew one-on-one at home. Craig Dawson led David Moyes’ men, but Joe Willock secured another important point in the Newcastle battle to avoid being demoted.
