The Blues got one back through Diego Costa in the second-half, but couldn’t manage to stop Jurgen Klopp’s side from picking up three points. The win put the Reds level on points with the Blues.

On Saturday, Arsenal defeated ten-men Hull City 4-1 at KC Stadium. Alexis Sanchez scored a brace while Theo Walcott and Granit Xhaka contributed goal apiece to the scoreline for the Gunners. Robert Snodgrass put one back for the Tigers in the second half.
Hull had to play the majority of the game with ten men following Jack Livermore’s 40th-minute red card.

Kevin De Bruyne and Kelechi Iheanacho scored for City in the first-half while Raheem Sterling and Ilkay Gundogan both added to the scoreline in the second half.

The Hammers got two back through Michail Antonio header and Manuel Lanzini penalty in next nine minutes, and it seemed for a bit that a comeback might be on for the London club. However, Tony Pulis’ side managed to preserve their lead in the end.

However, it was Hornets who took the lead against the run of play in the 83rd minute through substitute Juan Camilo Zuniga. Troy Deeney scored the 95th-minute penalty to complete the scoreline.

Stoke City continued their miserable start to the season with a 4-1 defeat to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
