Football: Liverpool go top, Everton close on Arsenal

Liverpool overwhelmed Tottenham Hotspur 4-0 at a fervent Anfield on Sunday to take over at the top of the Premier League table with six games of the season remaining. Spurs never recovered from an early Younes Kaboul own goal, with further strikes from Luis Suarez, Philippe Coutinho and Jordan Henderson securing an eighth successive victory for Brendan Rodgers's in-form side. The win took Liverpool two points above previous leaders Chelsea, beaten 1-0 by Crystal Palace on Saturday, and left the 18-time champions on course for a first English league title since 1990.

Football: Rennes find the winning momentum

Rennes finally strung together two consecutive Ligue 1 victories with a confident 3-0 home success against Bastia on Sunday that moved them clear of the drop zone. It was the first time this season that the Brittany outfit achieved three straight wins in all including their French Cup quarter-final success over Lille on Thursday. The hosts dominated from the outset with Romain Alessandrini opening the scoring after 14 minutes and Swedish striker Ola Toivonen doubling their advantage on 28 minutes.

Football: Marseille Euro hopes dented again despite draw

Cameroon international defender Nicolas Nkoulou scored a last-minute equaliser to earn Marseille a 1-1 draw at Sochaux in Ligue 1 on Saturday, but it was a result that did little good to either side. OM finished March with just two points from five games and they remain sixth, adrift of the European places, while Sochaux are five points from safety after failing to hold on to the first-half lead given to them by Stoppila Sunzu.

Football: PSG win again ahead of Chelsea showdown

Paris Saint-Germain warmed up for their Champions League showdown with Chelsea by recording a narrow 1-0 win at Nice on Friday that took them another step closer to the Ligue 1 title.

Football: Arsenal clash 'key' to City title bid, says Fernandinho

Manchester City's visit to Premier League championship outsiders Arsenal is key to their hopes of lifting the title, according to midfielder Fernandinho. City narrowed the gap on leaders Chelsea to three points thanks to their resounding 3-0 win at faltering champions Manchester United on Tuesday. Manuel Pelligrini's City side still have two games in hand on Chelsea and Fernandinho knows they can't afford to slip off the pace by allowing Arsenal to revive their own fading aspirations with a win at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

Football: Rennes stun Lille to reach French Cup semis

Rennes shrugged off their Ligue 1 struggles to reach the French Cup semi-finals on Thursday with a 2-0 win over high-flying Lille. Polish international Kamil Grosicki and Romain Alessandrini scored the goals that gave Rennes a last-four clash against second division Angers. The result also brought an end to Lille's eight-match unbeaten run, a stretch which has helped them into third spot in the Ligue 1 table. Monaco routed second division Lens 6-0 on Wednesday to also reach the semi-finals and keep their outside hopes of a league-and-cup double on track.

Football: Son nets as Leverkusen break winless streak

South Korea's Son Heung-Min hit a superb late goal to help Sami Hyypia's Bayer Leverkusen claim their first win in ten games in Wednesday's 3-1 Bundesliga victory at Augsburg. Having previously tasted victory at the start of February, Leverkusen's miserable run of results saw them slip from second to fourth in the table, crashing out of both the Champions League and German Cup in the process. Victory at Augsburg broke a streak of eight defeats in their last nine games in all competitions and eased the pressure on Hyypia, 40, who is in his first season as head coach.
