Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp could find himself in trouble following some comments made after his sides 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Anfield on Saturday! The German was angry as Chelsea equalised while he was waiting to make a substitution he feels may have prevented the goal.
After a goalless first half, Liverpool had taken the lead mid-way through the second half when former Chelsea player Mohamed Salah was on hand to take this season league goals into double fingers as he netted his 10th from close range only for Willian who carried on his excellent form from the mid-week game against Qarabag to deny Salah the victory over his former club with a looping effort that beat Simon Mignolet with five minutes left on the clock.
Salah could have won it for the reds in the final minute with an thunderous shot that was excellent saved by Thibaut Courtois in the Chelsea net.
Despite some excellent performances in Europe this season, Tottenham again failed to bring that intensity to their domestic game, needing a late strike from Harry Kane to snatch a point in the 1-1 home draw with West Brom on Saturday. The Managerless visitors who sacked manager Tony Pulis early last week following their 4-0 defeat by Chelsea, had taken an early lead at Wembley when Jake Livermore found Rondon to open the scoring.
Despite having the lions share of the possession and Territory, West Bromwich did an excellent job of holding off Tottenham’s big name stars, until Dele Alli found his Harry Kane in space, who then ‘nutmegged’ West Brom keeper Ben Foster to snatch a much needed point.
In what was proving to be a tough day at the office for the teams at the top of the Premier league, Manchester United were made to fight to the finish for a hard-earned win over a resilient Brighton team at Old Trafford. Despite the millions of pounds United had on the pitch, it was an unlucky Lewis Dunk own goal midway through the second half that broke the dead lock and gave United the 3 points. For much of the game Brighton had looked the better of the two teams, with both Knockaert and Gross finding chinks in the United defence but unfortunately for them they were unable to convert their chances.
