Liverpool took a firm grip on the Premier League title race with a 3-1 home victory over champions Manchester City at Anfield.

There was more top-flight VAR controversy this weekend and disappointment for England’s Lionesses before a record Wembley crowd.

But the sporting weekend did see success for England’s men’s cricketers in New Zealand.
