Full time: Fulham 1-3 Everton

Full time: Liverpool 4-0 Tottenham Hotspur

Luis Suarez

17:55: Another weekend and another twist in the Premier League title race. Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City all drop points and allow Liverpool to go top with six games left.

This week sees attention turn to the Champions League with Chelsea and Manchester United in action. We'll be across all the action but until then, goodbye.

17:53: Liverpool go top of the Premier League with an eighth straight win and are six successive wins away from securing a first Premier League title for 24 years. Younes Kaboul's own goal, Luis Suarez, Philippe Coutinho and Jordan Henderson did the damage against a wretched Spurs whose manager Tim Sherwood has good reason to fear the sack. But today is all about The Reds.

Full time: Liverpool 4-0 Tottenham Hotspur

17:50: Roberto Soldado stretchered off for Spurs and that's not good news for the final six games of the season with Emmanuel Adebayor out injured. Three minutes added on.

17:48: A minute plus stoppage time remaining at Anfield. This has been over for some time in truth. was meant to be second against sixth in the Premier League. Never mind.

17:39: Lloris has been in inspired for this afternoon despite the showing of the 10 men in front of him. The French captain dives out to cut out Henderson's raking cross-field pass towards Sturridge and prevents an almost certain fifth.

17:36: Another tame goal for Tottenham to concede and Liverpool, the Premier League's highest scorers, and piling on the misery. Jordan Henderson swings in a free-kick from the right and Dawson, Suarez and Agger all converge on the ball, missing it entirely and it outfoxes Hugo Lloris and bounces into the corner.

Goal: Liverpool 4-0 Tottenham Hotspur (Jordan Henderson)

17:27: Liverpool looking to finish with a flourish. Another mess at the back for Tottenham as Danny Rose doesn't realise Daniel Sturridge is behind him. The England forward gets the ball with his back to goal and his backheel is brilliantly turned away by Lloris.

17:22: Nacer Chadli start for Tottenham today. You could have fooled me. His only contribution of the afternoon so far sees him lash well over Tottenham's best period of possession. Terrible.

17:18: Andros Townsend coming on for Tottenham and replacing Aaron Lennon. Mousa Dembele on for Nabil Bentaleb

17:16: Liverpool closing in on the first of seven wins needed to win the title. Philippe Coutinho picks up the ball the other side of the Tottenham midfield, gallops towards goal and drives past Hugo Lloris from 20 yards. A case of how many now.

Goal: Liverpool 3-0 Tottenham Hotspur (Philippe Coutinho)

17:13: Another chance for Liverpool. Sterling gets the other side of Rose after a exchange of passes and with Lloris coming out he pull the ball across goal but the incoming Jordan Henderson skys his effort over the bar with the goal gaping.

17:12: Half an opening for Tottenham are Soldado gets the other side of Skrtel but at a tight angle and with no support the Liverpool defender is able to recovery and play the ball off the Spanish forward. Not look overly up for the occasion as the striker.

17:09: Tim Sherwood is sitting two rows behind chairman Daniel Levy in the directors box at Anfield and hardly looking pleased with how things are going. Wonder if the Spurs chief is already considering a change after this game? It's been limp at best from Tottenham.

17:04: Second half under way at Anfield. Damage limitation already for Tottenham.

16:50: Liverpool moving towards the top of the Premier League title after being gifted a 2-0 lead by Tottenham. Younes Kaboul's own goal and Luis Suarez's second after being set up by Michael Dawson has Liverpool cruising to the three points. Spurs woeful thus far.

Half time: Liverpool 2-0 Tottenham Hotspur

16:42: How are Liverpool not three up? Sterling puts it on a plate for Suarez whose header is somehow turned onto the bar by Lloris.

16:27: Michael Dawson is on for Jan Vertonghen at the heart of the Spurs defence but that hasn't halted Liverpool and they double their lead straight away. Gerrard's hack forward catches Dawson and Kaboul at sixes and sevens and Suarez gets in behind and shoots across and beyond Hugo Lloris into the corner.

Goal: Liverpool 2-0 Tottenham Hotspur (Luis Suarez)

16:24: Free-kick for Liverpool 25 yards out and though Steven Gerrard scored from a similar range in midweek, Luis Suarez takes stock on this occasion, but his curled effort goes over the bar.

16:17: Tottenham need to weather this Liverpool storm to prevent being blown away in the first half at Anfield. Coutinho volleys wide as they threaten again. Kaboul continues to look jittery at the back.

16:08: Bit of joy for Tottenham as Eriksen gets in behind in the box but his cut back can't pick out Aaron Lennon. Younes Kaboul has had a horrid start and he is fortunate to pick-pocket Suarez after the Uruguay forward ghosted in behind.

16:04: Ignominious start for Tottenham. Glen Johnson gets free on the right and though his cross evades Liverpool's forwards Younes Kaboul diverts the ball into the back of his own net. Ideal start for Liverpool, horrible stuff from Spurs.

Goal: Liverpool 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur (Younes Kaboul own goal)

16:00: Under way at Anfield. What a noise.

15:58: Electric atmosphere at Anfield. The home crown can smell a potential league title as 'You'll Never Walk Alone" rings around the ground. Kick off on the way.


15:47: The last time these two sides met, Liverpool consigned Tottenham to a 5-0 defeat at White Hart Lane, a game which turned out to the end of Andre Villas-Boas' tenure in charge. Tim Sherwood has won less than half of his 21 games in charge and is expected to be replaced by Louis van Gaal in the summer. A Champions League place might be out of reach, but Spurs still represent tricky opposition this afternoon.

15:44: The maths is simple for Liverpool, win their final seven league matches and they claim a first league title for nearly a quarter of a century. Though all four sides still in the title race will be expected to drop some points before the end of the season, it's the closest any Liverpool side who have come to returning to English football's summit. The first of those seven games comes today against Spurs.

15:42: Bit of meat to the team news there. Both sides make one change; Raheem Sterling coming in for Joe Allen for Liverpool and Mousa Dembele being replaced by last week's match-winner Gylfi Sigurdsson. Emmanuel Adebayor is left out altogether.

15:40: Teams:

Liverpool: Mignolet, Johnson, Skrtel, Agger, Flanagan, Gerrard, Henderson, Coutinho, Sterling, Sturridge, Suarez.

Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris, Naughton, Kaboul, Vertonghen, Rose, Bentaleb, Sigurdsson, Lennon, Chadli, Eriksen, Soldado.

15:33: So the blue half of Merseyside claim victory, can the red half follow suit to continue their title chances? Manchester City's draw at Arsenal means Liverpool are seven wins away from the Premier League title, the cloest they've been in the 24 years since they last won the championship. The host a Tottenham Hotspur side who are all but out of the top four scrap and whose manageer Tim Sherwood faces the summer sack. Teams on the way.

15:21: Everton go within four points of fourth place Arsenal and keep their Champions League hopes alive with their fifth successive league win over relegation doomed Fulham. A dull first half was following by four goals in the second 45 minutes, Steven Naismith's volley forcing an own goal off David Stockdale before Kevin Mirallas and Naismith himself condemning Ashkan Dejagah's equaliser as meaningless. Much to ponder for Felix MaGath's side who are five points from safety.

Full time: Fulham 1-3 Everton

15:17: Steven Naismith has been everywhere since coming on at the break and he almost doubles his tally but rattles the post from 25 yards. Four minutes added on at Craven Cottage.

15:14: Game set and match as Everton grab the third and the three points. A real mess in the Fulham boss sees Baines come from an offsie position to cross for Naismith, who pokes beyond a helpless Stockdale.

Goal: Fulham 1-3 Everton (Steven Naismith)

15:11: Everton again guilty of missed chances. Lukaku plays in Naismith who has escaped the attention of four Fulham defender, but Stockdale smothers the effort.

15:07: The sucker-punch from Everton and just like with Fulham, inspiration comes via the bench. Aiden McGeady slides through Mirallas who holds off Hangeland and finishes past Stockdale.

Goal: Fulham 1-2 Everton (Kevin Mirallas)

15:04: The game has transformed now and Fulham should be ahead. Free-kick from the left finds Heitinga all alone at the back post but his header is kept out by Howard. Fulham keep the pressure on and Dejagah's cross finds Kasami who is denied by Howard again.

15:00: Felix Magath's double change pays dividends. Dejagah marauds forward from left-back, cuts inside and unleashes a thunderbolt which crashes past Tim Howard. What a way to level the scoreline and Fulham have a lifeline. Those two golden chances for Everton coming back to hurt them.

Goal: Fulham 1-1 Everton (Ashkan Dejagah)

14:52: Fulham make a double substitution but almost fall further behind immediately. Confusion in the Fulham area ends with Lukaku shooting from eight yards but Stockdale saves well.

14:48: Everton should have doubled their lead. Naismith plays the ball inside Riether and Baines is onto it and amid the presence of Stockdale over-hits his cross with Lukaku waiting for the simple tap-in

14:40: Just five minutes into the second half and Everton take the lead against the run of play. Corner from the left is headed out only as far as Steven Naismith who volleys goalwards, the ball takes one deflection to take the ball off target but the second touch is off goalkeeper David Stockdale who diverts the ball into his own net. A goal befitting of the game.

Goal: Fulham 0-1 Everton (David Stockdale own goal)

14:34: World Cup alarm bells: Ross Barkley replace at half time by Steven Naismith. A calf problem is the reason. Barkley did spend a period of the first half down and he's had to go off. Big shame and lets hope it's not too serious.

14:32: We can expect better in this second half that's for sure. Fulham have to win and take advantage of West Brom and Cardiff dropping points and react to Palace's win over Chelsea. Everton have not got going and need a win to keep the pressure on Arsenal. Under way in the second half.

14:19: Great chance right on half time for rock-bottom Fulham to kick their survival challenge into gear. Holtby crosses towards the back post wheren Dembele is lurking but his header is straight at Howard. The Cottagers have been much the better in the opening 45 minutes but it's goalless so far.

Half time: Fulham 0-0 Everton

14:16: One added minute of added time at the Cottage. Entertaining if not full of quality this first half.

13:59: Opportunities a aplenty now and Tim Howard again has to extend himself to prevent Fulham going ahead. Riise' cross is deep and Lewis Holtby loops a header towards the back post and the American turns it over.

13:54: The best two chances of the match come in quick succession. First, Dembele feeds Richardson on the left side of the penalty area and Tim Howard does well to save with his feet. Everton go down the other end and Stockdale is forced to make an indentical save from Delofeu.

13:52: Plenty of attacking intent from both sides at Craven Cottage in the opening quarter of this game but neither side able to find a final ball. Fulham certainly enjoying more of the play but Everton, particularly through Gerard Delofeu, look bright.

13:33: As is the way in modern-day sport, the referee is forced to wait for the PA system to be turned down before being able to blow for kick-off. Frankie Valli's "I love You Baby" the intruding song on this occasion.

13:30: Under way at Craven Cottage.

13:27: Everton can go within four points of fourth place Arsenal with a game in hand in pursuit of a Champions League place while Fulham can jump off the bottom if they win this afternoon. Much to play for...

13:22: If Felix Magath needs any advice over keeping Fulham afloat in the Premier league, though his record suggests he doesn't, he could do worse than grab a word with England manager Roy Hodgson who is in attendance at Craven Cottage this afternoon. Aside from watching his former club, Hodgson is likely to be keeping an eye on among others Ross Barkley, who showed with his terrific goal against Newcastle that he is fit for the challenge of a World Cup finals this summer.

13:10: Fulham make three changes for the vital visit of Everton. Cauley Woodrow, Alexander Kacaniklic and Fernando Amorebieta drop out, with Lewis Holtby, Patjim Kasami and full debutant Moussa Dembele coming from the start. Far simpler for Everton, they're unchanged from the win at Newcastle United in pursuit of a fifth consecutive league win.

13:05: Teams

Fulham v Everton

Fulham: Stockdale, Riether, Heitinga, Hangeland, Riise, Holtby, Kvist, Sidwell, Richardson, Kasami, Dembèlè.

Everton: Howard, Coleman, Stones, Distin, Baines, McCarthy, Barry, Deulofeu, Barkley, Osman, Lukaku.

13:00: After the drama of Saturday comes more action from the Premier League on a glorious Mothering Sunday. Two games to enjoy, first at Craven Cottage where top-four chasing Everton host rock-bottom Fulham and later at Anfield which plays host to a Liverpool side who have the destination of the Premier League title in their own hands against Tottenham, whose campaign is threatening to unravel. What more could you want?
