Liverpool continue to sparkle
There is something about this Jurgen Klopp team that has even got longtime nemesis Paul Scholes purring about Liverpool. The Reds underlined their title credentials with a gutsy 2-1 win over the beleaguered Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium. Leroy Fer stunned the visitors early in the game while Swansea were impressive till the break. But Liverpool dug deep and levelled through Firminho. A late James Milner penalty won the game for Liverpool who climb up to provisional second before the Sunday matches. Swansea continue their troubled start and are just above the relegation zone.
Payet saves West Ham the blushes
Dimitri Payet lit up the London stadium with a spectacular solo goal to lift West Ham to a 1-1 draw against Middlesbrough. The visitors went ahead through a Christian Stuani goal and it took a Payet special to deny them a win. Both teams were guilty of creating scarce chances. The Hammers continue to stay in the relegation places while Boro stay two points and two places above them at 16th.
Chelsea get back to business
The mini-slump for Chelsea and Antonio Conte is over as the Blues got back to winning ways with a 2-0 win over Hull City at the KCOM Stadium. Goals from Willian and Diego Costa gave Chelsea their first win in four Premier League games. They now stand sixth in the table while Hull are flirting with danger sitting in 15th place with just three points separating them from the relegation zone.
Entertaining draw at Vicarage Road
Watford and Bournemouth played the match of the day as they fought out a 2-2 draw. Callum Wilson’s headed goal gave the visitors a lead but Troy Deeney struck from close range to get back to level terms. Substitute Joshua King gave the Cherries their second lead of the match. Another substitute in the game, Isaac Success got it back to level terms by scoring for the Hornets. This point puts both teams on the door steps of top 10 with eight points each.
