Liverpool recovered by a jolt Newcastle opener to start a five-point lead near the peak of the Premier League with a 3-1 win at Anfield, as Tottenham and Chelsea bounced back to form with large wins on Saturday. Tammy Abraham’s magnificent form lasted as the English forwards scored a hat-trick as Chelsea romped into a 5-2 win.
An injury-hit Manchester United dealt without Paul Pogba to inflict Leicester’s first defeat of the year as Marcus Rashford scored the sole goal in the penalty spot in a 1-0 triumph at Old Trafford. United combine Tottenham and Chelsea on eight points from five matches, but Liverpool secure the only 100 percent record in the league by responding to a slow start in fashion.
Manchester City may close the gap in the top to 2 points with success in the future Saturday in Norwich. Jetro Willems fired Newcastle before seven minutes to depart the European champions monitoring at Anfield for the first time since March. But, any lasting rift between Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah out of Liverpool’s final outing off to Burnley — when Mane was angry at the Egyptian because of his greediness before goal — was abandoned as they combined to score all three goals for the hosts.
Mane fired into the upper corner to begin the resurrection, but it had been the debut of Roberto Firmino off the bench for the wounded Divock Origi that turned the tide in Liverpool’s favor.
The Brazilian through ball was spilled by Martin Dubravka to let Mane an easy job because of his second before half-time, and yet another brilliant Firmino flick teed up Salah to seal the things 18 minutes from time.
“I began playing following 25 minutes, about when we came finally in the match,” said Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.
“Second half we scored just 1 purpose, but we played very good football and that I enjoyed it a whole lot. There were several minutes I liked, maybe not a whole lot but a couple and sufficient to function as a deserved winner now.”
Frank Lampard has suffered a challenging start on his return to Stamford Bridge as a boss, but he loved his best day up to now responsible for the Blues along with his religion in childhood again entirely vindicated. Fikayo Tomori, 21, fired the visitors in front at Molineux together with his first goal for the team before Abraham took to take his tally to seven in his final 3 matches with three brilliant endings from close selection. Abraham’s busy day wasn’t over because he then turned to his web and Patrick Cutrone cut Wolves’ deficit to 2 before Mason Mount round off the scoring for Chelsea overdue on.
Tottenham director Mauricio Pochettino expected that the conclusion of this European transfer window could settle his squad along with the Champions League finalists appeared more like their older selves by ripping apart Palace by the away. Son was the star of this series as the South Korean started the scoring then finished off a fine team move from volleying home Serge Aurier’s cross after Van Aanholt diverted a cross into his net.
Harry Kane was not able to construct on his goalscoring form for England but did play a role in the fourth because his cross was turned home by Lamela. United needed to endure much more for only a second win in 10 league games in the home into the Foxes since Rashford shrugged off his current collapse from the spot against Palace to convert a punishment about eight minutes later he was brought down from Caglar Soyuncu.
