Catch up with highlights from the Premier League as Manchester City regained the top spot from Liverpool with a 3-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion on Wednesday evening.

Liverpool stormed to the top of the table by tearing Manchester United to shreds in a 4-0 win at Anfield on Tuesday.

City were not so sparkling, but held their nerve to edge back one point ahead in the title race thanks to second-half goals from Riyad Mahrez, Phil Foden and Bernardo Silva.

Mahrez was guilty of missing the best chances of a tense first 45 minutes for the English champions against a Brighton side that had won at Arsenal and Tottenham in their past two outings.

However, there was little doubt over the outcome once Mahrez bundled the ball home after Kevin De Bruyne’s burst opened up the visitors’ defence.

There was a hint of fortune about City’s second as Foden’s shot from a well-worked corner deflected past Robert Sanchez.

Silva then sealed the points with a sumptuous finish from De Bruyne’s lay-off.
