Liverpool extend flawless start to top EPL, Manchester City hold second spot

Liverpool extend flawless start to top EPL, Manchester City hold second spot”

It's [65.0] bar Manchester City and Liverpool to win this season's Premier League after the big two recorded resounding wins over Brighton and Burnley respectively on the same weekend that Chelsea and Manchester United dropped points from winning positions, and Arsenal and Tottenham lost ground when drawing 2-2 in the north London derby.

Manchester United's Scott McTominay (C) in action during the Premier League match against Southampton.

However, fortune did favour Jurgen Klopp's men 12 minutes before half-time.

Kevin Danso provided the cross for centre-back Vestergaard to equalise, although the Austrian later undid some of that good work by becoming the first Premier League player to be sent off on a home debut since Yannick Sagbo of Hull City in August 2013.

'Very early when I came in I told everyone that we want to create our own history and that is what the boys do week in, week out.

With Sergio Aguero scoring twice to keep up his record of scoring in each of City's four league games and substitute Bernardo Silva netting with his second touch, it was business as usual for City, who lost French defender Aymeric Laporte with what looked like a serious knee injury.

'He has gone to the hospital.

Aguero soon made the game safe by blasting high into the net just before the break and produced another sublime finish to curl into the top corner for his second 10 minutes into the second-half.

Pep Guardiola's men wasted no time taking control of the proceedings at City of Manchester Stadium, with Kevin de Bruyne scoring off a pass from David Silva in the game's second minute on Saturday.

In the day's early kick-off, Manchester United's struggles continued as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side could only manage a draw away to 10-man Southampton.

Daniel James had given the visitors the ideal start with his third goal in four appearances for United, but Jannik Vestergaard headed home an equalizer just before the hour mark.

"It's not a dip in form, (but) it's a dip in results definitely".

Third-placed Leicester continued their excellent start to the season with a 3-1 win over Bournemouth, with Jamie Vardy involved in all the home team's goals.

With Chelsea ([120.0] in the PL Winner market) squandering a 2-0 lead at home to Sheffield United in drawing 2-2, and Manchester United ([160.0]) playing out a 1-1 draw at Southampton, it means that Arsenal and Tottenham - both available to back at [65.0] - are the only other clubs trading at under [100.0] in this season's title race.

Robinson then had a hand in the 89th-minute equalizer as his cross was deflected in by Kurt Zouma for an own goal.

"We have to take responsibility, we allowed that to happen".

He scored in each half as well as assisting Youri Tielemans' goal for the unbeaten Foxes, with the former England striker's first effort a wonderful lob.

Goals from Sebastien Haller and Andriy Yarmolenko lifted West Ham past Norwich into fifth, while Will Hughes' early score helped winless Watford earn their first point at Newcastle.

At Selhurst Park, Jordan Ayew scored Crystal Palace's first home goal of the season in the 1-0 win over Aston Villa although the game ended in controversy after the visitor's late equaliser was ruled out for an apparent dive by Jack Grealish.

Liverpool could ease off the gas after the break to record their first clean sheet of the season as Burnley rarely threatened to get back into the game.
