EPL Results: Liverpool Held To 1-1 Draw Brighton, City Thrash Burnley 5-0

Liverpool grabbed a point after they had two goals disallowed and they were dealt a blow by a penalty in a 1-1 draw at Brighton, while Man City returned to winning ways with a 5-0 thrashing of Burnley.

AllNews understands that Jurgen Klopp had voiced his concerns all week about fixture congestion and facing Brighton at lunchtime, just three days after a Champions League defeat to Atalanta.

Liverpool edged back to the top of the Premier League summit, a point ahead of Tottenham, but was left frustrated by Pascal Gross's stoppage-time penalty which salvaged a point for Brighton.

Already hit by a huge list of injuries, the Reds suffered another setback when James Milner had to be replaced with a hamstring problem in the second half.

"Congratulations," Klopp said sarcastically to a television reporter for BT Sport. "You work for them yeah? Hamstring, surprise.

"I've not had a go at the broadcaster, I just say how it is. After Wednesday, Saturday 12.30 is really dangerous for the players."

Klopp named Neco Williams and Nathaniel Phillips in a makeshift back four and Brighton took advantage when Williams wiped out Aaron Connolly for Brighton's first spot-kick, but Neal Maupay sent it wide.

VAR disallowed Mohammed Salah's goal for offside, but the Egyptian teed up Diogo Jota to keep his flying start to life at Liverpool going with a fine finish on the hour mark.

Sadio Mane had a second for the visitors ruled out for offside before another VAR review went against Liverpool when Andy Robertson was adjudged to have kicked Danny Welbeck trying to clear.

This time Gross took responsibility from the spot and sent Alisson Becker the wrong way.

City Thrashed Weak Burnley, Mahrez Hits Hattrick

City shrugged off their problems in front of goal by hitting five past Burnley for the fourth consecutive clash between the two at the Etihad.

Pep Guardiola's men had scored just seven goals in their previous seven league games, but Riyad Mahrez's early double opened the floodgates.

Benjamin Mendy made it 3-0 before half-time and Ferran Torres got his first Premier League goal before Mahrez completed the scoring and his hat-trick.

The victory propelled City to within six points of Liverpool at the top of the table with a game in hand.

"It's important for us to score goals and keep going," said Guardiola, who will hope a favourable run of fixtures over the next month can haul his side back into the title race.
