Ledley King's Key Talking Points

Lucas Moura became the first player to score a hat-trick at Spurs' new stadium in a comfortable 4-0 win over Premier League basement boys Huddersfield. Now we look forward to a huge week with a Champions League visit to the Etihad up first. Big European nights are what Spurs have been waiting for, so it's time to make the most of it with another huge performance on Wednesday.

Mo Salah's thunderbolt secured a 2-0 win for Liverpool over Chelsea to maintain their Premier League title charge. Van Dijk was impressive at the back yet again, while Mane grabbed his 18th of the season. Liverpool have four games to play and as Klopp declared, could end up with 97 points, and finish second.

Raheem Sterling was the star again for City in their 3-1 victory over Palace to keep the pressure on the league leaders. Sterling has 12 goals and five assists since December and has arguably developed into City's key man going forward this season.

There was more controversy for Neil Warnock as his side had a penalty overturned, albeit correctly, as they trailed by a goal against Burnley. Cardiff's next game is a relegation six-pointer against Brighton, with a win putting them two points behind the Seagulls, but defeat all but confirming relegation on Tuesday.

Ipswich will be playing third tier football for the first time since 1957 next season after relegation was confirmed in a 1-1 draw with Birmingham at Portman Road on Saturday. The result ends a streak of 17 consecutive seasons in the Championship.

A dramatic game at the Stadium of Light ended with Sunderland falling out of the automatic promotion spots after a 5-4 defeat to Coventry. The scoreline read 3-3 at half-time, and the second have was equally as entertaining with the Sky Blues adding the winner with 12 minutes to play.

Lincoln sealed promotion to League One with a 1-1 draw at home to Cheltenham. Manager Danny Cowley has now guided Lincoln to two promotions in his three seasons at the club, as well as winning the Checkatrade Trophy at Wembley last season.
