Liverpool lose ground after draw at Birmingham

8:09 am on 5 April 2010

Liverpool have lost ground in their bid for a Champions League place after drawing 1-1 at Birmingham City in the English football Premiership.

The point leaves the Reds sixth on 55 points, four behind fourth-placed Manchester City, who have 59 points from 32 games - but Liverpool have played a game more.

Tottenham Hotspur are fifth on 58 points, having played 32 games.

Strugglers West Ham United have moved out of the relegation zone with a much-needed point after a 2-2 draw at Everton.

They're now one ahead of 18th-placed Hull City, though Hull have a game in hand.

Fulham were the only top flight winners on Monday, beating Wigan Athletic 2-1.
