Atletico Madrid ground out a victory over Granada to go eight points clear at the top of La Liga.

Luis Suarez hit the crossbar early in the second half as Diego Simeone’s side looked for a breakthrough.

Marcos Llorente put them ahead with a low drive from 20 yards but Yangel Herrera levelled soon afterwards as Atletico failed to clear a corner.

Angel Correa scored the winner with a heavily deflected strike which looped over the goalkeeper.

Atletico are eight points above defending champions Real Madrid – with a game in hand on Zinedine Zidane’s side. 

Barcelona and Real Madrid are both at 46 points, with the former on top due to goal difference
