AMORIM'S SPORTING CP CLOSE IN ON TITLE GLORY

Ruben Amorim, the hot favourite to become the next Liverpool manager, is now within touching distance of title glory in Portugal with Sporting CP.

Pedro Gonvalves opened the scoring with a sweet strike on the half hour, before hot property Viktor Gyokeres finished a brilliant move to double that advantage on the stroke of half-time. Gyokeres added his second and Sporting's third four minutes after the restart.
