EPL Table & Match Reviews As Chelsea & Man City Won Their Games Yesterday, While Liverpool lost

 The Premier League was in action yesterday, with four teams playing their match-day 27 games. Let's take a look at how all yesterday's games played out.

* Bournemouth 1-0 Liverpool

Liverpool's top-four hopes were dealt a huge blow yesterday as they were defeated 1-0 by Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium. The Reds made a strong start to the game, with Van Dijk having a header cleared off the line, Robertson being denied by a good Neto save, and Gakpo having a goal ruled out for offside. Bournemouth grew into the game and took the lead in the 26th minute thanks to Billing's quick counter. The hosts defended with everything they had in the second half, but Liverpool were given a chance to come back when Smith was penalized for a handball in the box. Salah, on the other hand, was unable to convert as his effort went wide.

The hosts were able to defend well in the final minutes of the game and maintain their lead until the end.

* Leicester 1-3 Chelsea

Chelsea were looking to boost their top four hopes with a win against when Leicester City yesterday. The Blues got off to a good start, with Chilwell scoring on a fine volley from Koulibaly's cross. However, Daka equalized for Rodgers' side to level the game at halftime.

The Blues came back strongly in the second half, regaining the lead thanks to Havertz's deft finish, before Kovacic scored a thumping volley to extend Chelsea's lead. Leicester's woes worsened as they were reduced to ten men in the closing stages following Faes' dismissal. The game ended 3-1, with Chelsea taking all three points home.

* Crystal Palace 0-1 Manchester City

In yesterday's match, Crystal Palace proved to be a formidable opponent for Manchester City. Manchester City dominated possession from the start, but the hosts were organized into a low block that stymied City's attack for the duration of the first half. The game remained tight until after the 75th minute, when a Manchester City corner kick allowed Gundogan to get into the 18-yard box and win a penalty, which was expertly converted by Haaland. Vieira's team offered little offensively and never really threatened Ederson, who finished the game without making a save. Manchester City's victory cut the gap between them and Arsenal to two points.

* Tottenham 3-1 Nottingham Forest

Tottenham increased their chances of finishing in the top four with a 3-1 victory over Nottingham Forest yesterday. Richarlison smashed the ball past Navas in the fourth minute to give the hosts the lead, but a VAR check denied the forward his first league goal of the season because he was offside. Kane broke the deadlock 15 minutes later with a header from Porro's cross. The striker then scored his second goal of the game from the penalty spot.

Nottingham Forest began the second half composed, but a superb finish from Son in the 62nd minute put the game out of reach. Worrall scored late in the game and could have scored again if Ayew had not missed his 95th-minute penalty.
