6:59 am on 16 December 2012

Aston Villa has upset Liverpool 3-1 at Anfield in the English football Premiership.

Manchester City also won 3-1 at Newcastle United, while Manchester United beat visitors Sunderland by the same score to maintain their six-point lead over City at the top of the table.

Queen's Park Rangers finally won a game, beating London rivals Fulham 2-1 to move off the bottom of the table by a point above Reading, who play Arsenal at home on Tuesday.

But QPR remain five points adrift of safety and that same margin behind 18th-placed Wigan Athletic, who lost 2-1 at Norwich City.

Stoke City drew 1-1 with visitors Everton.
