Premier League LIVE results! Liverpool 0-1 Brighton; Villa 1-3 West Ham, Lingard goals; Man City win – Evening Standard

A

fter a night of high drama in the Premier League on Tuesday, Wednesday offered plenty more action up and down the table.

Tuesday’s action offered plenty of goals and VAR controversy, with Wolves battling back to beat nine-man Arsenal – who had David Luiz and Bernd Leno sent off on a miserable night at Molineux. The Gunners are appealing Luiz’s red card, though the immediate result left Mikel Arteta’s side in 10th place.

Sheffield United beat fellow strugglers West Brom 2-1 to spark hopes of an unlikely relegation escape act, while Crystal Palace won 2-1 at Newcastle – but the tie of the evening came at Old Trafford as Manchester United equalled a League record with a 9-0 drubbing of nine-man Southampton.

Tonight’s five games have a lot to live up to after that excitement, but leaders Man City went clear of rivals United as they beat Burnley 2-0 at Turf Moor. Fulham lost 2-0 at home to Leicester City, Everton won 2-1 at Leeds United, champions Liverpool suffered a shock 1-0 home loss to Brighton, while West Ham returned to winning ways with a 3-1 victory at Aston Villa.

Alzate reflects on huge Brighton win at Anfield

Steven Alzate admitted he was not sure whether the winner was definitely his but will happily claim it given it would be his first in the Premier League and sealed a memorable result for Brighton.

“Big result, big result,” he told BT Sport. “The last few games I feel we’ve been getting decent results and I feel like it’s been coming. We’ve been playing well since the beginning of the season but luck hasn’t really come our way. But massive win today.”

Put to Alzate that the last time Brighton won a league game at Anfield was 39 years ago, he said: “It’s not easy coming here. They’re the champions for a reason. We stuck to our game plan and it worked.”

Lingard: West Ham team-mates have been great

Asked about his first few days at the club, Lingard told BT Sport: “The team has been great with me. I’ve settled in fairly quickly.

“I know some familiar faces, which always helps, and as long as you work hard on the training pitch and on a match day, you get the three points.”

Quite the statement from West Ham. There have been so many big displays this season but that has to be the best performance so far. Lingard was captivating and clinical but each player was on top form. Some response to the Liverpool performance.
