EPL: Liverpool draw against Leicester, Chelsea stunned by Bournemouth

Liverpool have been frustrated by Leicester City, but still edged five points clear at the top of the Premier League, after a 1-1 draw at Anfield.   

Sadio Mane fired the Reds in front with just two minutes on the clock, the forward exchanging passes with Andrew Robertson, before sliding the ball beyond Kasper Schmeichel and inside the far post.

Leicester should have drawn level midway through the first half, only for James Maddison to make a mess of his header at the far post.   

But Liverpool did not heed the warning and in first-half stoppage time, they failed to clear a free-kick and Harry Maguire pounced to equalise.

Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri was jeered by the travelling fans, as his Blues were stunned 4-0 at Bournemouth to drop out of the top four.

The Cherries went ahead two minutes into the second half, when David Brooks played a reverse pass back to Joshua King, who smashed it home into the back of the net.

King returned the favour, when his ball over the top found Brooks, who cut inside David Luiz before applying the finish.   

King struck again, when he added a third from a Junior Stanislas centre and Charlie Daniels compounded Chelsea's misery, when he headed home in stoppage time.   

Late goals from Son Heung-min and Fernando Llorente gave Tottenham Hotspur a 2-1 come-from-behind home win over Watford.   

Craig Cathcart nodded the Hornets ahead from a corner on 38 minutes.   

But Son, who only returned from Asian Cup duty with South Korea on Saturday, struck with 10 minutes remaining.   

The much-maligned Llorente, again leading the line in the absence of injured Harry Kane, ensured Spurs took the three points, when he headed in Danny Rose's 87th-minute cross.   

Wilfried Zaha scored and was sent off, as Crystal Palace drew 1-1 at Southampton   

Four minutes before halftime, Zaha picked up a loose ball and drilled it into the bottom corner to give the Eagles the lead.   

But the Saints drew level on 77 minutes, when Matt Targett crossed low from the left and James Ward-Prowse slotted into the corner.

Three minutes from time, Zaha was booked for his reaction to a challenge from Ward-Prowse and then shown a second yellow card for dissent.
