Check out which games from the English top flight are coming your way in February, exclusively on BT Sport.

Saturday 13 February

Leicester 3-1 Liverpool

Alisson suffered another nightmare as Liverpool’s title defence was left hanging by a thread after a late collapse at Leicester.

The goalkeeper gifted Jamie Vardy a game-changing goal as the Foxes scored three times inside a dramatic final 14 minutes to clinch a 3-1 win.

Alisson, fresh from two huge gaffes against Manchester City, aided Liverpool’s late capitulation when he came and missed Youri Tielemans’ long pass and Vardy ran the ball in.

James Maddison had already levelled before Harvey Barnes struck to compound the visitors’ misery.

Mo Salah had given them a second-half lead but Jurgen Klopp’s side are 10 points behind leaders Manchester City – having played two games more – after a third straight defeat.

Vardy also missed two excellent chances when he headed at Alisson and hit the bar in the first half.

It was a stunning turnaround and the Foxes moved into second, six points ahead of Liverpool.

Crystal Palace 0-3 Burnley

Burnley returned to winning ways in style after a quick start proved key to a 3-0 win away at Crystal Palace.

Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Jay Rodriguez netted inside 10 minutes at Selhurst Park and Matt Lowton added a brilliant third after the break to end a four-match run without a victory for Sean Dyche’s team.

It moved the Clarets to 26 points and 11 clear of the relegation zone but the Eagles’ woes without talisman Wilfried Zaha continued. In his absence, Palace have lost 18 of their last 20 top-flight games and the latest spoiled Roy Hodgson’s 350th Premier League game in management.

Without their top goalscorer due to a hamstring injury, Christian Benteke and Michy Batshuayi started together up front for only the second time this season but for a third consecutive game the hosts conceded early.

Man City 3-0 Tottenham

Ilkay Gundogan struck a second-half double as Premier League leaders Manchester City powered to a record-extending 16th successive win with a 3-0 success over Tottenham.

The in-form German, fresh from being named as the player of the month for January, took his goal tally for the season to 13 as he added to Rodri’s 23rd-minute penalty at the Etihad Stadium.

Gundogan was also responsible for winning the spot-kick in another outstanding display but his evening ended prematurely as he went off injured soon after his superbly taken second goal, from an Ederson pass, on 66 minutes.

Brighton 0-0 Aston Villa

Aston Villa goalkeeper Emi Martinez was the hero for his side once again as he produced a rock solid performance to ensure his side avoided defeat against an impressive Brighton.

The former Arsenal keeper made nine saves as Brighton peppered the Villa goal with 26 shots - the most they have ever managed before in a Premier League match - but the Seagulls could not find a way past the 28-year-old behemoth.

Neal Maupay and Alexis Mac Allister spurned glorious opportunities for Brighton in the first half but failed to capitalise; thankfully they were not made to rue their wasteful finishing by a Villa side who appeared to lack any attacking endeavour.

The result means Brighton make it six games unbeaten in the league while Villa remain eighth in the table.

Southampton 1-2 Wolves

It was hearbreak for Ralph Hassenhuttl at St Mary's as Southampton threw away a first half lead to fall to a sixth Premier League defeat in a row against Wolves.

It marks a grim milestone in the club's history - the first time they've ever lost six on the bounce in the Premier League - and the signs are worrying for Saints fans who had been dreaming of Europe little over a month ago.

Wolves, meanwhile, will be delighted to have returned to winning way, benefitting from a fortuitous penalty decision for Ruben Neves to cancel out Danny Ings' opener from the spot.

And Pedro Neto enhanced his burgeoning reputation as the next young Portuguese star with a magnificent winner shortly after the hour mark.

West Brom 1-1 Man United

Manchester United's title hopes were all but extinguished as they were held to a 1-1 draw at West Brom.

The Baggies got off to a dream start as Mbaye Diagne climbed above Victor Lindelof to head home from a Conor Gallagher cross just 83 seconds after kick-off.

Sam Allardyce's men continued to pepper United's defence with searching crosses throughout but conceded from a cross themselves when Luke Shaw's looping centre found Bruno Fernandes on the penalty spot.

The Portuguese talisman rifled a stunning volley into the top corner to level the scores shortly before half time.

And the results would stay that way after a fairly uninspiring second half meaning United have now taken just 10 points from their last seven games; a run that has included games against each of the bottom three.

Arsenal 4-2 Leeds

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored his first Premier League hat-trick on his return to the Arsenal side to lead them to a thrilling win over Leeds.

The Gunners captain had not started in five games after leaving the club’s coronavirus-secure bubble to tend to his ill mother.

But he marked his comeback in fine fashion as a spirited Leeds were beaten 4-2 at the Emirates Stadium, having started the afternoon above their hosts in the table.

Operating as the main striker, Aubameyang opened the scoring with a low finish before doubling the lead with a penalty and completing his hat-trick with an early second-half header.

Hector Bellerin’s first goal in over a year had Arsenal three goals to the good at the end of a first half they had dominated, only for Leeds to rally with goals from Pascal Struijk and Helder Costa to make it an uncomfortable end to the game for the hosts.

Everton 0-2 Fulham

On-loan striker Josh Maja scored twice on his full Premier League debut as Fulham recorded a first league win at Everton in their history, with a deserved 2-0 victory ending a 12-match run without a win.

The 22-year-old former Sunderland man scored two typical poacher’s goals from close range.

It moved the third-bottom Cottagers to within seven points of Newcastle in 17th and offered them some hope of an escape if Maja, whose two goals incredibly moved him to joint-fourth on Fulham’s leading league scorers list this season, can reproduce this form on a more regular basis.

They will not find many opponents as passive as Everton, however, who blew the chance to strike a huge psychological blow for the forthcoming Merseyside derby.

Four points from this match and Manchester City on Wednesday would have put them above their rivals across Stanley Park ahead of Saturday’s short trip to Anfield.

But Everton were toothless without injured top scorer Dominic Calvert-Lewin and also lacked the necessary competitiveness to make Fulham’s first league win at Goodison Park in 28 attempts anything other than comfortable.

West Ham 3-0 Sheffield United

West Ham made light of not having a recognised striker as they swatted aside Sheffield United at the London Stadium.

David Moyes’ decision not to bring in a forward on deadline day looked set to come back to haunt him with Michail Antonio, his only senior frontman, ruled out injured.

But with Jesse Lingard providing the attacking menace, goals from Declan Rice, Issa Diop and Ryan Fredericks secured a 3-0 win and kept West Ham in the hunt for an unlikely Champions League place.

Chelsea 2-0 Newcastle

Timo Werner’s first goal in 15 Premier League games sent Chelsea back into the top four as the Blues saw off Newcastle 2-0 at Stamford Bridge.

Olivier Giroud also found the net as Chelsea coasted past a worryingly-limited Newcastle, although the Blues lost Tammy Abraham to a nasty-looking ankle injury.

Werner’s first league strike since November 7 meant the Germany hitman’s top-flight goal drought lasted exactly 1,000 minutes.

New Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel had insisted only a goal could restore Werner’s shattered confidence and now the west Londoners will hope the £53million man can rediscover top form.

The former RB Leipzig striker backed up his first league goal since the 4-1 win over Sheffield United with an assist for Giroud in an encouraging all-round showing.

Chelsea’s win pushed West Ham down to fifth on goal difference, with defending champions Liverpool slipping to sixth place.

The Blues will face plenty of tougher top-flight tests, but new manager Tuchel has now overseen four straight league wins.

Burnley v Fulham, 6pm on NOW TV via BT TV

Fulham continue their unlikely escape mission with a trip to Turf Moor in midweek.

The game will be Fulham's second in four days after the south-west Londoners secured a surprise victory at Everton on Sunday evening.

The club's new goalscoring hero Josh Maja admits getting off the mark early in his Cottagers’ career is a weight off his shoulders.

The 22-year-old scored twice on his full debut for the club, following his deadline-day loan move from Bordeaux, to secure a 2-0 win which ended a run of 12 matches without victory.

It moved third-bottom Fulham to within seven points of safety ahead of a crucial week for their survival hopes, starting with a must-win game against Burnley.

“The remaining games of this year for us are going to be massive,” said Fulham's rookie manager, Scott Parker.

“I don’t really concentrate on the league table and what teams are doing around us.

“Our sole focus is to come in every day and improve. We need to win matches, I know that. We’ve drawn a lot of games.

“This is a confident team. You don’t play football like we play football, these players don’t move the ball like they move the ball, if they didn’t have confidence.”

Burnley will be full of confidence themselves having thrashed Crystal Palace 3-0 last weekend. 

The victory lifted the Clarets eight points clear of the drop-zone but Sean Dyche will be targeting another win as they look to make their Premier League status a mathematical certainty.

Everton v Man City, 8.15pm on Amazon Prime via BT TV

Everton will be hoping they are the team to end Manchester City's extraordinary winning sequence when they welcome the league leaders to Goodison Park. 

The match is a dress rehearsal for the FA Cup quarter-final tie between the two teams - available live on BT Sport - but extending their lead at the top of the table will be City's sole focus.

The 3-0 victory over Tottenham last Saturday extended their record-breaking run to 16 games in all competitions and the Citizens will go 10 points clear of bitter rivals, and nearest challengers, Manchester United with a win on Merseyside. 

If the hosts can spring an upset it will give their top-four aspirations a welcome shot in the arm ahead of their derby clash against Liverpool, who currently hold the final Champions League spot. 

Toffees boss Carlo Ancelotti will be looking for an immediate response from his charges after watching them put in a pitiful display against lowly Fulham on Sunday night. 

Everton are enjoying one of their best Premier League seasons under the Italian, having taken 37 points from 22 games to sit seventh and just three points off the top four, but their home form is a source of continued concern.

Only four of their 11 league victories have come at Goodison Park, where they have not won in the Premier League since 19 December, and the 2-0 defeat to Fulham was their third defeat in their last four games on home soil.
