Premier League: Liverpool gets win ahead of Madrid clash

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah scored in a 2-1 win over Aston Villa on Saturday in the 31st round of the Premier League. The Reds showed resilience as they came from behind to steal all 3 points at Anfield on Saturday.

The visitors opened the scoring in the 43rd through Ollie Watkins. Mohamed Salah (57th) crafted an equalizer and Trent Alexander-Arnold (90+1) from a long range curl from well outside the penalty box gave the Reds a win and they are still in contention for a place in next season's Champions League.

This victory brings them one step closer to that goal. They are 4th in the table with 52 pts (+16 goal-average) only for a few hours prior to Chelsea's game against Crystal Palace in a fixture that came a little later. Liverpool is 4th ahead of West Ham (5th, 52 pts +11). The Hammers play Leicester City (3rd, 56 pts) on Sunday.

Chelsea confirmed their fine form from last week's Champions League by demolishing Crystal Palace 4-1 on their travel. Ngolo Kante, Alonzo, James, Werner and Ziyech were rested for the encounter owing to the team's return leg Champions League tie against FC Porto. On (52 pts), Chelsea is just two points away from 3rd place Leicester.

Leaders Manchester City were stunned earlier on Saturday by visiting 10 man Leeds United 2-1 at the Etihad. A less desired result for Guardiola's team as they visit Dortmund next week for the return leg quarter finals of the Champions League. The defeat has reduced the gap between City and their noisy neighbors Manchester United to 14 points with less than 10 games to the wrap of the season.
