🦁 Salah hat-trick sees Liverpool hit FIVE; Leicester, West Ham win
It doesn’t get much bigger than this.
We’ve got three brilliant games for you this afternoon, with Manchester United v Liverpool as the main course.
Follow it all here.
Manchester United v Liverpool
Scorers: Ronaldo 53′ Keïta 5′, Jota 13′, Salah 38′ 45+4′ 50′
Liverpool subjected Manchester United to one of their worst ever Premier League defeats as Jürgen Klopp’s men won 5-0 at Old Trafford.
For the 208th time the two biggest clubs in English football met for a domestic league fixture and the chance of bragging rights along the M62.
And it was the home side who had the best chance after only four minutes as Bruno Fernandes went through on goal but blazed over from 10 yards.
Amazingly though, just a minute later Liverpool did take the lead as Naby Keita burst through and finished past David de Gea.
Klopp’s side were flying and quickly added a second as Diogo Jota slid in and finished a Trent Alexander-Arnold cross.
Mohamed Salah wasn’t going to sit back and let his team mates get in on the act, and the Egypt international netted the visitors third on 38 minutes – ghosting in and firing in from close range.
Salah then got his second of the game right on the stroke of half time with a brilliant low finish from the edge of the box.
After the break and that man Salah didn’t take long to get his hat-trick as he ran through and chipped De Gea to make it 5-0.
A bad day got worse for United as Cristiano Ronaldo had a goal disallowed for offside and Paul Pogba was then sent off for a shocking foul on Keïta.
West Ham v Tottenham
Scorers: Antonio 71′
Michail Antonio was the hero once again for West Ham as his second half goal ensured a 1-0 win over Tottenham.
Despite an indifferent start to the season Tottenham could go level on points with Liverpool with a win here.
But it was West Ham who went closest early on as an Aaron Cresswell corner caused mayhem in the Spurs box.
The Hammers kept pushing and really should have opened the scoring through Tomas Soucek but the Czech international’s header flew just wide.
Spurs’s best chance came just before the break as Harry Kane leapt highest at the far post and had his header tipped away by Lukasz Fabianski.
The home side got their goal though, as Michail Antonio volleyed in from a corner with 20 minutes to go.
Brentford v Leicester
Scorers: Jorgensen 60′; Tielemans 14′, Maddison 73′
Despite a spirited display from Brentford, Leicester did just enough to beat the Bees 2-1 on Sunday.
Two of the Premier League’s entertainers met in west London and it was the newly-promoted side who went closest early on.
Christian Norgaard had an effort saved whilst Ivan Toney found the net after good work down the left but his goal was disallowed for offside.
But agains the run of play it was the visitors who took the lead as Youri Tielemans caught it sweetly for one of the goals of the season so far.
Into the second half and it was James Maddison who almost doubled the Foxes lead, but his effort was saved well by David Raya.
But the Bees got their equaliser on the hour mark as Mathias Jorgensen gets to the near post and pokes in.
Brendan Rodgers’ men weren’t to be outdone though and retook the lead soon after through James Maddison.
