Liverpool FC are still on the heels of Manchester City after a hard day’s work in the English Premier League. Team manager Jürgen Klopp’s team won FC Burnley 3-1 after a 1-0 deficit, while FC Arsenal gave Manchester United two leads and FC Chelsea lost Wolverhampton.
Meanwhile, Ralph Hasenhüttl, the new team manager of last place FC Southampton, saw his side lose 3-1 at Tottenham Hotspur from the stands.
Instead of the former RB Leipzig trainer, whose commitment had only been announced on Wednesday afternoon, Kelvin Davis sat on the bench as an interim coach.
FC Arsenal also went undefeated in the 20th game in a row. The Gunners, who again played without ex-national player Mesut Özil, had to be content with a 2:2 (1:1) lead at the record breaking champion Manchester United.
Liverpool’s runners-up Reds are three points down on defending champions City, who had presented a 2-1 win at Watford on Tuesday, following their twelfth win of the 15th game of the season. James Milner (62nd) compensated Burnley’s lead by Jack Kork (54th), the former Hoffenheimer Roberto Firmino (66th) and the former Munich Xherdan Shaqiri (90.+2) provided the final score.
Arsenal passed Chelsea FC on third place in the table (both 31 points), the Blues surprisingly lost 1-2 (1-0) to Wolverhampton Wanderers. National player Shkodran Mustafi took the Gunners 1-0 head-to-head at Old Trafford in the 26th minute.
Manchester goalkeeper David de Gea let the harmless header Mustafis slide through his hands into the goal. Just four minutes later, Anthony Martial (30th) equalised the match, with Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno losing out.
After Alexandre Lacazette’s (68th) 2-1 win over Arsenal, Jesse Lingard came back just a minute later. It was the fourth game in a row without a win for ManUnited in eighth of the table, 18 points behind their arch-rival ManCity.
Özil, who recently missed Tottenham (4:2) and Bournemouth (2:1) because of a mysterious back injury, was not even on the bench. Recently there have been rumours of a dispute with team manager Unai Emery and a forthcoming winter change of Özil to Inter Milan.
