MADRID, 17 Oct. (EUROPA PRESS) –
Everton defended this Saturday their lead alone on the fifth day of the Premier in an entertaining Merseyside Derby against Liverpool (2-2), while Manchester City achieved the victory by the minimum (1-0) against Arsenal .
With fresh air for Goodison Park, Carlo Ancelotti’s team continued to lead (13 points) after the match against their neighbors, Liverpool (10) who forgave until the last second and were not happy with the VAR, since they canceled the 2-3 on Henderson’s discount for a millimeter offside.
Mané opened the scoring after three minutes, on his return after recovering from the coronavirus, but it did not take long for the local team to react through Michael Keane. Again the visiting blow and rival reaction were repeated, with Mohamed Salah and Calvert-Lewin. Everton suffered in the end, with Richarlison sent off for a tough tackle on Spaniard Thiago, but he saved the point.
Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola’s City won their first home game thanks to Raheem Sterling, watching the second play at 20 minutes to score the only goal of the match. Despite the victory, the Manchester team is still off the hook, ninth with seven points, while Arteta’s are fifth with nine.
Chelsea did not manage to regain positions, outside the noble zone, by conceding a tough tie in discount against Southampton (3-3). Lampard’s new guys, Timo Werner and Kai Havertz, did their best to leave victory at Stamford Bridge but Jannik Vestergaard frustrated the Londoners with the final draw.
The day this Saturday was closed by Manchester United’s win over Newcastle (1-4). Those of Solskjaer continued with doubts despite taking the game forward with the solo war of some of their talents, with goals from Bruno Fernandes, Wan-Bissaka and another from Rashford already in the last minutes.
