All the results and highlights of todays games  Liverpool down West Ham to go top.

West Ham 0 Liverpool 3

The Liverpool skipper scored twice in the first half before Ryan Babel sealed all three points late on to keep alive Liverpool’s slimming hopes of wresting the title off Manchester United.

Rafa Benitez’s side took top spot from United on goal difference, but the champions can reclaim that position with anything but defeat in the Manchester derby against local rivals City on Sunday.

Benitez wants favourLiverpool boss Rafael Benitez took his side back to the top with victory over West Ham – then challenged Manchester City to blow the title race wide open.

 

The Reds’ 3-0 win moved them above Manchester United, who take on their city rivals on Sunday.

He said: “We needed to get three points and put them under pressure, and now we will be cheering and supporting Manchester City.”

Defeat for West Ham saw them fall behind in the race for a European place after Fulham had beaten Aston Villa earlier in the day to pull ahead of both West Ham and Tottenham.

Hull could find themselves in the drop zone on Monday night after losing to Stoke, who secured their own safety.

The opening goal came when Hull failed to deal with a set-piece and Stoke’s Ricardo Fuller turned to fire a shot between a defender and the post (41).

Liam Lawrence’s dipping strike then left Hull keeper Boaz Myhill stranded (73), and Andy Dawson’s pinpoint free-kick was merely consolation (90).

Blackburn 2 Portsmouth 0

Goals from Morten Gamst Pedersen and Benni McCarthy all but ensured Premier League safety for Blackburn.

Portsmouth failed to deal with a cross and Pedersen fired in from an angle for his first of the season (31).

Hermann Hreidarsson was penalised for handball and McCarthy converted the spot-kick to double the home side’s advantage (58), before sub John Utaka skied a late penalty for the visitors.

Bolton 0 Sunderland 0

Sunderland moved five points clear of the drop zone but failed to take their opportunities against Bolton.

Kieran Richardson had a shot deflected wide for the visitors and then twice fired over the crossbar when well placed as the Black Cats pressed.

Mark Davies had a shot blocked for the hosts and volleyed over, while visiting keeper Marton Fulop produced a superb save to keep out Gary Cahill’s header.

Everton 0 Tottenham 0

Everton v Tottenham – Redknapp

Tottenham’s hopes of European football next term faded after an uneventful stalemate at Goodison Park.

The visitors were the better side in the opening period but Ledley King did well to block Jo’s shot after the Brazilian rounded Heurelho Gomes (41).

Everton showed more purpose after the break and Dan Gosling rattled the post after Spurs failed to clear a corner from Steven Pienaar (68).

Fulham 3 Aston Villa 1

Fulham took an important step towards Europa League football with an emphatic win over fast-fading Aston Villa.

Danny Murphy opened the scoring from the penalty spot (6) after Diomansy Kamara was bundled over by James Milner who atoned for his error by crossing for Ashley Young to level (15).

A second half brace from Kamara sealed the points, with his first coming just 26 seconds after the restart.

West Brom 3 Wigan 1
