SummaryDaniel Sturridge struck twice to keep Liverpool F.C.'s Premier League title hopes alive with a thrilling 4-3 win over Swansea.

Tottenham Hotspur F.C. fell six points behind fourth-placed Liverpool F.C., after Robert Snodgrass scored early in the second half to earn Norwich City a precious 1-0 win over the London side on Sunday.

Liverpool F.C. move to within four points of leaders Chelsea F.C. Arsenal F.C. are second, one point behind Chelsea, with Manchester City a further two points back in third.

Robert Snodgrass scored early in the second half to earn Norwich City a precious 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday and ease the pressure on under-fire manager Chris Hughton.

Media reports emerged during the week that Hughton's job was under threat with his team having picked up one win from 13 matches in all competitions.

However, Snodgrass's calm finish after being put through by Bradley Johnson earned his side a well-deserved win against a sluggish Spurs team who had to travel to Ukraine for a Europa League match on Thursday.

The defeat meant Spurs fell six points behind fourth-placed Liverpool F.C., 4-3 winners over Swansea City earlier on Sunday, while Norwich moved up to 14th, four points above the relegation zone.

Earlier, Daniel Sturridge struck twice to keep Liverpool F.C.'s Premier League title hopes alive with a thrilling 4-3 win over Swansea City.

Sturridge became only the second player to score in eight successive Premier League matches when he grabbed a third-minute opener and Jordan Henderson put Liverpool F.C. in control before Jonjo Shelvey and Wilfried Bony drew Swansea level.

Sturridge, who matched former Manchester United F.C. striker Ruud van Nistelrooy's feat, was on target again before the break, only for Bony to equalise again from the penalty spot.

Henderson clinched the points for the hosts 16 minutes from time at Anfield, the win moving them back to within four points of leaders Chelsea.

Arsenal are second, one point behind Chelsea, with Manchester City a further two points back in third.
