Premier League

Current EPL Table After Liverpool, Manchester United, And Chelsea Saturday's Showdown

Watford 0-5 Liverpool:

Liverpool has put in a five-star display to swat the Hornets aside with ease. Klopp's front three were imperious throughout as Firmino grabbed a hat-trick and Salah and Mane also got on the scoresheet. Ranieri has work to do if he's to fulfill his task of keeping Watford up.

Liverpool's win takes them top of the Premier League table for now with Chelsea playing away to Brentford later. Klopp will be extremely pleased with his team who are firing on all cylinders and unbeaten in 18 Premier League matches now. Watford drops to 15th with their goal difference has taken a big dent.

Liverpool march on, then, as they turn their attention to Champions League duty before facing Manchester United at Old Trafford next week. On this evidence, United has plenty to fear.


Leicester City 4-2 Manchester United:

Leicester end United's record 29-match unbeaten away run in the Premier League with a 4-2 win.

Greenwood broke the deadlock in the first half with a great goal before Tielemans equalized with a chip over De Gea.

In the second half, Greenwood hit the post and De Gea tipped Daka's shot onto the woodwork. Soyuncu then put the hosts ahead from the resulting corner, but Rashford equalized quickly.

Just one minute after that though, Vardy volleyed Leicester back into the lead and Daka rounded it off in stoppage time with a close-range tap-in.

Leicester gets their first win in the league since the end of August and it lifts them to 11th in the table. Their attention turns to the Europa League now and their match against Spartak Moscow.

United are now winless in their last three league games and drop to fifth. Next up for them is Atalanta in the Champions League.


Manchester City 2-0 Burnley:

Manchester City clinches a 2-0 victory over Burnley at the Etihad, thanks to a first-half finish from Bernardo and De Bruyne's 70th-minute strike.

However, Burnley tested them at the other end and could have got something out of the game, with Cornet and Brownhill going close in the first half before Wood struck the crossbar late on from close range. This win sends City back up to second in the table, just one point off Liverpool at the top.

Burnley's wait for their first win of the season goes on and they face Southampton next time out.

Meanwhile, Citturnsrn their attentions to the Champions League in midweek, facing Club Brugge, before returning to league action against Brighton next weekend.


Chelsea 1-0 Brentford:

Chelsea holds off an onslaught from Brentford to secure a 1-0 win in their Premier League clash at the Brentford Community Stadium.

Ben Chilwell scored the only goal of the game on the stroke of half-time with a stunning volley.

However, the Bees will feel that they should have had a share of the spoils a Bryan Mbeumo hit the post twice, while Saman Ghoddos, Pontus Janss, on, and Christian Norgaard were all denied by outstanding saves from Edouard Mendy.

The Blues did enough at the back to earn the three points and move back to the top of the table.

Brentford are next in Premier League action against Leicester City next Sunday on home soil. Chelsea are back in Champions League action on Wednesday at home to Malmo.

Here's how the EPL table currently looks like:

Chelsea is on top of the table at the moment with Liverpool following closely behind in second place while Manchester City is third on the log.

Chelsea remains at 1st place after their 1-0 win over Brentford who is in 7th place on the log.
