Manchester United 2-1 Liverpool FC
The most exciting derby of the past few encounters between these two teams. As you may have heard Rashford was unstoppable. In front of goal he was deadly. However, for a broader look at the game, United came out attacking with great offensive play from the attacking players Mata, Sanchez, Rashford and Lukaku. The biggest miss from the squad was most notably Pogba. However, it was no problem for Jose’s men. The hot start was not what Liverpool expected and caught them off, also Rashford murdered Alexander-Arnold when they were 1 on 1.
Klopp looked beside himself, he took a cool sip of his water after that second goal went in and accepted this was his life now. Meanwhile, Mourinho was happy to sit back and absorb the attack while just breaking after a turnover in possession. The game plan worked perfectly in Mourinho’s favor, the possession was 32-68 in Liverpool’s favor, and they didn’t manage a shot on goal in the whole second half. The only goal which would come was a back heel by Bailly into the back of his own net.
Overall, this puts United further cemented in second place, and now they’ll be prepared to receive Sevilla.
Highlights from the rest of the league:
Everton and Big Sam get a big win at home (2-0) and Brighton will be disappointed to not have done better here. They are in more than good position to stay midtable regardless.
Swansea and Huddersfield tied at 0-0 and it was a bad result for both, Huddersfield continue sputtering and Swansea did not get attainable points to move further from the relegation zone.
Newcastle United win 3-0 against Southampton who will probably sack their manager, and Newcastle keeps on churning on their march to stay in the Prem with this solid performance.
Speaking of managers to be sacked Pulis and his team West Brom lost four to one at home against Leicester City. Leicester would’ve been dismayed to not have gotten a result here.
Burnley beat West Ham United away 3 goals to nil. Burnley continue playing on fire and West Ham are back in the dumps after an almost promising run.
Lastly, Chelsea beat Crystal Palace 2-1. Cheslea despite their fair share of injuries and Crystal Palace’s inspired form they clearly dominate this one.
That’s a wrap for today’s fixture’s, tomorrow we’re back, and maybe some MLS review/preview tonight?
