Crystal Palace 1-3 Liverpool: Fabinho strikes controversial late penalty to bury Eagles

Liverpool had to withstand a spirited second-half fightback from Crystal Palace before emerging with a 3-1 win on Sunday to close the gap on Premier League leaders Manchester City to nine points. Virgil Van Djik gave Liverpool an early lead with a powerful header from a corner, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain added a second in the 32nd minute, controlling a superb cross-field pass from Andy Robertson before thumping the ball home. Palace pulled one back 10 minutes into the second half when Jeffrey's Schlupp's pass to Jean-Philippe Mateta sliced open the Liverpool defence, and he squared the ball for Odsonne Edouard to fire into an empty net. 

Arsenal hosted Burnley at the Emirates stadium as they looked to continue their push for a Champions League spot.

LEICESTER CITY 1-1 BRIGHTON: Leicester City were denied all three points as a late Danny Welbeck goal earned Brighton a draw at the King Power Stadium

EXCLUSIVE - CHRIS FOY: With Owen Farrell in danger of missing the entire championship after apparently damaging his right ankle, Ford has been handed a chance to revive his international career.

The 25-year-old, who has featured just 10 times for Spurs this season, does not seem to be part of Antonio Conte's plans going forward - despite being in contract until 2024.

Australian Grand Prix race chief executive Andrew Westacott insisted that rules are clear and all racers and staff must be fully jabbed to attend.

Newcastle players jet off to Saudi Arabia for as Amnesty International fears sportswashing

Eddie Howe insists the trip is a 'football decision' but it has been a controversial topic with Amnesty International suspecting it is more sportwashing from the Newcastle owners. The team has a 17-day break between fixtures having beaten Leeds United 1-0 on Saturday. Their next game comes on February 8 against Everton and Howe said he always planned to take his team away before the suggestion of a trip to Saudi Arabia was made.

UFC 270: Francis Ngannou beats Ciryl Gane on points to retain his heavyweight title

Francis Ngannou evolved from a KO king to a grappling God with a completely unexpected performance against Ciryl Gane. After dropping the first two rounds with his gas tank seemingly running low, the champion produced a massive body slam takedown that must have shaken up some Californian seismologists as his French opponent clattered into the mat. It was the moment of the fight and signalled a crucial change in momentum with the Cameroon native repeating the trick in the championship rounds. With the scores level at two rounds apiece heading into the fifth, both men knew the importance of the next five minutes.

Sao Paulo fans fling a KNIFE onto the pitch as out-of-control supporters invade the field and square up to players during an U20s game in shocking scenes in Brazil, before their own stars prevent violence

Sao Paulo supporters stormed the field (right) during their Under-20 side's Sao Paulo Junior Football Cup semi-final against Palmeiras at the Arena Barueri. And as reported by the Sun, the referee (right of bottom left) was pictured holding a knife (top left) moments later. Video on social media shows the dramatic moment in second-half stoppage time when, with Sao Paulo 1-0 down, fans invade the field to confront Palmeiras players. Several Palmeiras stars tried to push the first fan away, with Sao Paulo players bravely stepping in to de-escalate the situation.

Jack Grealish 'waited in the tunnel' to confront Southampton's Oriol Romeu

A furious Jack Grealish was waiting in the tunnel to confront Southampton's Oriol Romeu, according to Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl. The £100million Manchester City was embroiled in a heated row with Romeu, who had accused the England ace of play-acting after a tackle from Jan Bednarek. Referee Simon Hooper had to placate both players - and Hasenhuttl then suggested Grealish was intent on continuing the grudge after the final whistle. 

Chris Eubank can push towards a world title with victory over Liam Williams but faces a

Chris Eubank Jr and Liam Williams will finally share the ring on February 5, with both fighters looking to push towards a world title shot. Eubank Jr has shown clear improvement since partnering with trainer Roy Jones Jr but faces undoubtedly his toughest test yet under the stewardship of the legendary 53-year-old against a determined Welshman hell-bent on carving his own route to the top. There have been verbal spars galore, both in person and online, during the build-up to the enticing event with seemingly genuine needle between the pair, needle that dates back circa 10 years, when the pair went toe-to-toe in an actual sparring session, ironically at Adam Booth's gym. Around a decade after the swift but stormy encounter, Booth now finds himself in the center of the domestic grudge match, recently taking on the role of Williams' trainer, while at the same time coaching Eubank Jr's cousin Harlem, who's also on the card. Safe to say the move hasn't gone down well with Eubank Jr.

OLIVER HOLT: Mikel Arteta is building something at Arsenal

Some Arsenal fans have watched the last week's comic capers with despair and concluded that Arteta should no longer be trusted with the task of trying to restore the club to former glories. Arsenal go into Sunday's game against Burnley at the Emirates outside the top four and still - as the tie against Liverpool proved - a level below Jurgen Klopp's team and Manchester City, and perhaps Chelsea too.

Tyson Fury claims Mike Tyson would have knocked-out 'pair of p******' Joshua and Usyk in

Tyson Fury has backed his namesake for the hypothetical heavyweight title, insisting Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk would both be 'chinned' by a prime Mike Tyson. The Gypsy King is awaiting news on his next fight, with Usyk and Joshua alongside Dillian Whyte and Derek Chisora as candidates to kick-off 2022 - with Frank Warren looking at a late-March date.  The Ukrainian holds the WBA, IBF, WBO belts - missing only Fury's WBC title - and AJ wants them back after triggering his rematch clause after losing in Tottenham back in September last year. 

Calvert-Lewin has had an injury-hit campaign, which has seen him play just six times in the top-flight. He was at the top of his game last term, though, scoring 16 league goals under Carlo Ancelotti.

EXCLUSIVE: The club have recruited top psychiatric therapist Ishbel Straker to hold one-on-one clinics with upcoming stars, helping them to cope with racist abuse, sudden fame and addiction issues.

SPECIAL REPORT: Even Serbians are divided over Novak Djokovic Australian Open jab scandal

SPECIAL REPORT BY IAN HERBERT IN BELGRADE: It's been a week for serving up roast piglet in Belgrade, the traditional way to mark the Serbian Orthodox Church's New Year, and the joke doing the rounds is that the locals should be tucking into kangaroo instead. They'd expected to be watching Novak Djokovic chart a course to an historic 21st Grand Slam at the Australian Open, by far his favourite tournament, but instead the local hero is back in the Balkans, hunkering down this week in his Montenegro bolt-hole.  The flat screen TVs at the Novak Tennis Centre he's built near the confluence of the Danube and Sava rivers here were showing Carlos Alcaraz v Matteo Berrettini late on Friday afternoon. No-one was remotely interested.

Aymeric Laporte shows off a nasty gash on his leg after Stuart Armstrong's high tackle

WARNING - GRAPHIC CONTENT: Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte saw the funny side of things despite picking up a gruesome looking gash in the draw with Southampton.  City's 12-game winning streak was brought to an end by the Saints after Laporte cancelled out Kyle Walker-Peters seventh minute opener.  The Frenchman was involved in a contrversial moment when he was brought down by Stuart Armstrong's high foot in the second-half. 

England suffer chastening nine-wicket defeat in first Twenty20 against the West Indies

RICHARD GIBSON: Different format, same old pain for England this most chastening of winters. Exactly a week after Ashes humiliation was completed 48 hours ahead of schedule in a flurry of rash strokes in Hobart, a shadow Twenty20 side quick-stepped to disaster at the beginning of a new bid by Eoin Morgan to unite global white-ball belts. Such ineptitude is clearly not the preserve of the Test team. For a while it looked like the floodlights would not be required as Jason Holder, who finished with career-best figures of four for seven, and Sheldon Cottrell dismantled the top order. It got better but not much as West Indies cantered to a nine-wicket win.

Winter Olympics: What happened to Great Britain's five medallists from 2018?

The major sporting events continue to roll around and that rings true with the start of the Winter Olympics. The 2022 edition takes place in Beijing, China across February 4-20. Four years ago it was held in in Pyeongchang, South Korea where Great Britain won five medals, one gold and four bronze. It was a record-breaking performance by Great Britain but what happened to those medallists? Sportsmail takes a look...

Dave Ryding becomes Great Britain's FIRST EVER winner in an Alpine Skiing World Cup

Dave Ryding won the Kitzbühel men's slalom on Saturday in a remarkable first for a British skier in the 55-year-history of the Alpine World Cup and with the Beijing Olympics only weeks away. Norway's Lucas Braathen and Henrik Kristoffersen were second and third respectively in the biggest slalom on the men's circuit Ryding, 35, also became the oldest winner of a men's World Cup slalom and kissed the snow as he crossed the finish line in the Austrian resort.

NATHAN SALT AT THE BRENTFORD COMMUNITY STADIUM: Brentford's Premier League match with Wolves was thrown into chaos when an 'unofficial drone' stopped play for 19 minutes.

Everton: Bill Kenwright speaks to fans outside Goodison Park following protests after

Everton fans stayed inside Goodison Park to protest against the club's board after their 1-0 defeat at home to Aston Villa on Saturday. The Merseyside outfit, who parted company with Rafa Benitez last weekend, slumped to their 11th loss of the season as a result of Emi Buendia's header on the stroke of half-time. It has been a miserable campaign for them so far, with Toffees supporters pointing the finger at both owner Farhad Moshiri and chairman Bill Kenwright for their struggles on the pitch. While they got behind caretaker boss Duncan Ferguson and his team during their latest defeat, the Goodison faithful stayed behind long after the match had finished to make their displeasure known.

Aston Villa pair Matty Cash and Lucas Digne struck by BOTTLES thrown by Everton fans in shameful scenes as they celebrated their team's opening goal at Goodison Park 

Aston Villa duo Matty Cash and Lucas Digne were felled by bottles thrown by Everton fans in disgraceful scenes at Goodison Park. Steven Gerrard's side were celebrating their breakthrough goal by Emiliano Buendia on the cusp of half-time in front of one of the home stands. Cash appeared to be struck on the head by a bottle full of orange liquid and it appeared the same missile also hit former Everton defender Digne, who fell to the turf too.
