Manchester City retained their slender advantage over Liverpool as the Premier League title contenders both enjoyed vital wins over the weekend.

City’s 5-1 thrashing of Watford left Roy Hodgson’s side ever closer to the drop, while Liverpool’s win over Everton in the Merseyside derby ensured their local rivals remained in the bottom three following Burnley’s win over Wolves.

Elsewhere, Tyson Fury retained his WBC heavyweight title via a sixth-round stoppage of Dillian Whyte, Max Verstappen won the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix and defending champion Mark Selby lost the longest frame in Crucible history as he crashed out of the World Snooker Championship.

Here, the PA news agency takes a look back at the sporting weekend in pictures.
