Reds pass Palace test

Crystal Palace are words enough to give Liverpool fans nightmares, but some ghosts were exorcised on Saturday as Jurgen Klopp's side won 4-3 at Anfield.

Trailing at half-time, Liverpool blasted out of the blocks in the second half to quickly take the lead and went 4-2 up in injury time, despite having had James Milner sent off.

That helped Palace score a late third to ensure a tense conclusion but ultimately Liverpool passed this test of their title credentials, thanks in no small part to a Mo Salah brace.

In winning, Liverpool moved seven points clear of Manchester City once more - but Pep Guardiola's side responded with a 3-0 win over Huddersfield where Leroy Sane was among the scorers.

Guardiola felt there was room for improvement, though, while Huddersfield's interim boss Mark Hudson will have been pleased with elements of their play.

Hudson will also have been pleased, surely, to see Spurs win 2-1 at Fulham to keep alive their stretch of draw-less games - which can be traced back to last April.

It looked like finally Mauricio Pochettino's side were going to be held, Harry Kane's absence costing them, that is until Harry Winks popped up for a stoppage-time winner.

It wasn't all good news for Spurs, though, after Dele Alli limped off with what looked to be a hamstring injury.

Plenty left in the Altior tank

Altior won again, nothing new there, but Nicky Henderson had to play down concerns over a marked tendency to jump left as his star beat Fox Norton by a dominant seven lengths.

Henderson blamed Ascot's nature for that and there was otherwise plenty to like about Altior's 17th victory in succession - he'll now bid for an 18th at Cheltenham, which would equal the record held by Big Buck's.

Emotional win for Lowry

Shane Lowry got the better of Richard Sterne to land a wire-to-wire victory in the valuable Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship.

The first event of the year on the European Tour saw most of the big names fail to mount a challenge and it was Lowry who led after every round following a course-record 62 on Wednesday.

In the end he had to show plenty of fight to beat Sterne and win for the first time since August 2015.

Federer sent packing

Roger Federer was knocked out of the Australian Open at the last-16 stage as as 20-year-old Stefanos Tsitsipas came of age on Rod Laver Arena.

The Greek, who was not born when Federer made his professional debut, has rapidly established himself as one of the most exciting up-and-coming talents in the game and backed it up spectacularly with a 6-7 (11) 7-6 (3) 7-5 7-6 (5) victory to move through to a first grand slam quarter-final.

In the women's draw, Maria Sharapova was beaten by Ashleigh Barty as Australia celebrated a home player into the quarter-finals for the first time in a decade.

Durrant secures PDC card

Glen Durrant said earning his PDC card at Qualifying School felt as good as winning the BDO World Championship at the Lakeside.

That was after four gruelling days of competition, all of them seeing Durrant fail to gain automatic progress onto the biggest circuit in the sport, but enough combined for a place via the Order of Merit as Kirk Shepherd and Nathan Derry dominated Sunday's event.

While it took Durrant until Sunday to get the job done, Reece Robinson and Matt Clark prevailed on Saturday, while recent BDO contenders Mark McGeeney and Scott Baker both secured PDC Tour Cards on day two.

Day one belonged to Jamie Hughes, classy on his day and now with a PDC card in his hand, and 21-year-old Harry Ward who could well be one for the future.

Trump masters O'Sullivan

Judd Trump secured a first Masters title as he thumped Ronnie O'Sullivan 10-4.

It was a thoroughly mature performance from the left-hander, who won the UK Championship in 2011 and had been expected to add further Triple Crown titles before now.

Perhaps the wait will have been worth it as he got the better of arguably the greatest player in the history of the sport, never looking anything but the winner after taking the first four frames of the match.
