(Reuters)-Liverpool took the lead in the Premier League on Saturday, beating Crystal Palace 3-0. Meanwhile, champion Manchester City brought Southampton a goalless draw at home.
Arsenal have won 2 consecutive victories with a 1-0 victory at Burnley. Meanwhile, the promoted Brentford won an impressive 2-0 victory at the Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Everton’s undefeated start to the season ended abruptly after losing 3-0 at Aston Villa.
Jurgen Klopp’s team moved from five games to 13 points after goals from Sadio Mané, Mohamed Salah and Naby Keita in Anfield as Chelsea and Manchester United were inactive until Sunday. ..
Liverpool beat Patrick Viera’s palace, but struggled to turn their advantage into a goal until Manet threw the ball from close range at the club’s 100th goal shortly before half-time.
His strike followed a shocking mistake by Portugal’s international Diogojotta, who burned a bar two yards away.
Virgil van Dijk flicked the corner and the forward gave a decent finish, so Sarah added one second to finish the contest in the 78th minute.
But when Keita volleyed from the edge of the box to the net when the watch was injured, there was still time for Keita to add a spectacular one-third.
“When you win, you’re usually really good or great. Today we weren’t good, but good,” Klopp said.
“I’m really happy with the results and I’m really happy with the performance because Crystal Palace accepted the fight that was here,” he said.
The city was detained in a frustrating goalless draw by Southampton at Etihad Stadium.
Southampton thought he was given a great chance to move forward shortly after Adam Armstrong was given a foul penalty after a successful match in the first half, when Citi was well below par. To make matters worse for the city, Kyle Walker was sent off for a foul.
However, referee Jon Moss, with the intervention of VAR, overturned both the red card and the spot kick award.
Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden were summoned from the bench because they thought Citi had grabbed Raheem Sterling’s death and sought a winner, but his efforts were excluded offside.
As a result, the city is 3 and 10 points down from Liverpool.
Everton are fifth with 10 points, but Rafa Benitez’s team has undergone a reality check after scoring three times in 10 minutes after a break at Villa Park.
Matty Cash smashed in the opening round in the 66th minute. This was the club’s first goal. Lucas Digne’s own goal came out of the corner and replaced Leon Bailey’s fierce drive.
Martin Ødegaard’s 30-minute curling free kick was Arsenal’s consecutive win, but with the help of VAR as he scored three points at Turf Moor.
The Norwegian midfielder beautifully curled the ball into the upper corner of Nick Pope’s goal in the 30th minute, leading Mikel Arteta’s side to six points.
Burnley thought there was an equalizer opportunity when Matěj Vydra fell under the challenge of Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, and referee Anthony Taylor pointed to it.
However, when VAR intervened, Taylor overturned his decision after going to the pitchside monitor and watching a video showing Ramsdale playing the ball.
Brentford claimed to have won their first Premier League victory 2-0 with a wolf, despite dropping to 10 in the middle of the second half.
Ivan Toney scored an assist in the first half of his busy schedule and was not allowed two goals. However, Shandon Baptiste issued a second yellow card, forcing visitors to defend for the last 30 minutes.
Brentford is 9th in the ranking, but the wolf is aiming for his first home victory under Bruno Lage and has fallen to 16th.
Chelsea will head to London’s rival Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, Manchester United to West Ham and Leicester City to Brighton.
