Liverpool deservedly win 3-1 against Sheffield

Liverpool FC is the old and new football leader in the English Premier League. Coach Jürgen Klopp’s team celebrated a hard-fought but well-deserved 3-1 (1-0) win against bottom team Sheffield United on Thursday evening. Thanks to the success in their own stadium, the Reds pushed Arsenal FC back from the top of the table after 24 hours.

Darwin Núñez (17th minute), Alexis Mac Allister (76th) and substitute Cody Gakpo (90th) caused wild celebrations in the Anfield stadium with their goals. An own goal to equalize by Conor Bradley (58th) had temporarily dampened the mood in the stands and gave hope to relegation candidates Sheffield, who were playing well.

The guests from Sheffield had already made an exclamation mark in the first minute of the game and only narrowly missed taking the lead. Liverpool keeper Caoimhín Kelleher was just able to parry a shot from the unmarked James McAtee with his foot. Afterwards, Klopp’s team increasingly took control of the game, but missed numerous opportunities and also hit the woodwork. Liverpool had to tremble for a long time until Gakpo finally released his team with a header.

Palmer brace saves Chelsea in stoppage time

Late in the evening, Chelsea FC beat Manchester United 4:3 (2:2) in a spectacular match. Conor Gallagher (4th) and Cole Palmer (19th) gave the Blues an early lead, but Alejandro Garnacho (34th, 67th) and Bruno Fernandes (39th) initially turned the game in the Red Devils’ favor with their goals. But Palmer had the last word (90th+10, 90th+11), who shook Stamford Bridge with a converted penalty and a deflected shot from the edge of the penalty area.
