The English Premier League football leaders Manchester City have put their recent run of poor form behind them to beat Liverpool 3-0.

Tottenham Hotspur have maintained their title push with a 1-0 win at home to West Bromwich Albion.

The win moves City 48 points from 20 games, three clear of rivals Manchester United and six clear of Tottenham.

Sunderland maintained their good form since the arrival of new manager Martin O'Neill with a 4-1 win over struggling Wigan Athletic.
