Tottenham Hotspur failed to increase their lead atop the Premier League log on Sunday after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Sunday.
Harry Kane put Spurs on course for a sixth win in seven league games with a shot from 30 yards in the 23rd minute, an effort which goalkeeper Vicente Guaita should have saved.
But Palace equalised in the 81st minute when Jeffrey Schlupp bundled home after Spurs and France World Cup winning goalkeeper, Hugo Lloris could not hold Eberechi Eze’s free-kick.
A dramatic ending saw Spurs substitute, Ben Davies, hit the bar, while Guaita made a spectacular save to keep out a free-kick from Eric Dier.
Liverpool missed out on the chance to go top of the Premier League after they drew 1-1 with Fulham at Craven Cottage.
Bobby Decordova-Reid gave Fulham the lead in the 25th minute when he fired in an effort from 20 yards past returning Reds goalkeeper, Alisson.
The visitors also survived an early shout for a penalty, that required referee Andre Marriner to come to the touchline VAR monitor to assess Fabinho’s challenge on Cavaleiro, which saw him make contact with both man and ball.
Fulham were impressive throughout the game, and although Liverpool improved after the break, with Jordan Henderson drawing a superb save from Areola, the defending champions could did not create clear-cut chances.
Respite, however, came for Liverpool in the 79th minute after Aboubakar Kamara leapt in the wall and blocked a Georginio Wijnaldum free-kick with his arm.
Mohamed Salah stepped up and fired the resulting penalty under home goalkeeper Alphonse Areola to earn the champions a point.
On a weekend that also saw Chelsea, Tottenham and both Manchester clubs drop points, Liverpool will be disappointed that they failed to take advantage, although they remain level on points at the top with Spurs, behind the Londoners only on goal difference.
A desperately poor Arsenal side were jeered off by their own supporters after being stunned 0-1 at the Emirates by Premier League strugglers, Burnley.

Burnley’s winner came after Arsenal’s Granit Xhaka was dismissed on 58 minutes for grabbing the throat of Clarets midfielder Ashley Westwood – the Swiss midfielder given a red card after referee Graham Scott reviewed the incident on the pitch-side monitor.
The Gunners had plenty of attempts at goal but most of them were dealt with comfortably by Nick Pope, a superb reflex save to keep out Alexandre Lacazette’s low strike aside.
Burnley’s victory lifts them out of the relegation zone, a point clear of Fulham, while Arsenal stay in 15th place.
