LONDON - Leaders Arsenal dropped vital points in the Premier League title race as they were held to a 2-2 draw at Southampton on Tuesday, with Mathieu Flamini sent off with 10 minutes to go.

Southampton took the lead through a Jose Fonte header but goals from Olivier Giroud and Santi Cazorla put Arsenal ahead only for Adam Lallana to equalise for Southampton.

Flamini was then sent off for a two-footed challenge but the visitors hung on for a point to extend their lead to two points, meaning Manchester City could overtake them if they win at Tottenham on Wednesday.

Liverpool hammered Everton 4-0 in the Merseyside derby to consolidate their position in fourth, three points behind Chelsea.

In pouring rain at Anfield, Daniel Sturridge scored twice and missed a penalty as Liverpool romped to victory to close to within six points of Arsenal.
