Jamie Vardy scored twice as Leicester beat Liverpool to stay three points clear at the top of the Premier League.

The England striker opened the scoring with a brilliant 25-yarf half-volley over goalkeeper Simon Mignolet from Riyad Mahrez's long ball forward.

He then sealed the victory when he turned home Shinji Okazaki's deflected shot from close range.

The Foxes fully deserved their victory, with Mignolet touching an Okazaki header onto the bar in the first half.

Next up for Leicester is a massive game against Manchester City on Saturday night and Liverpool will host Sunderland on Sunday morning.

England striker Harry Kane scored twice as Tottenham kept up the chase at the top with an easy win at Norwich.

Dele Alli tapped in inside the first two minutes after Christian Eriksen's low shot had been blocked.

Kane then stroked in the second from the spot after Alli, who came off with an illness at half-time, was fouled in trying to follow up Kane's saved shot.

He then fired his second of the night from 15 yards after Eriksen had dispossessed Martin Olsson.

Spurs face Watford next on Sunday morning, while Norwich travel to the Midlands to take on Aston Villa.

Manchester City responded to the news of manager Manuel Pellegrini's summer departure with a hard-earned win over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

Pellegrini - who will be replaced by Pep Guardiola - saw Sergio Aguero gather a deflected cross to coolly finish with the outside of his foot.

Sunderland rallied, debutant Lamine Kone heading wide before Billy Jones hit the post just before the break. Jones forced a Joe Hart save late on as City - sluggish on the night - held on.
