England, AFP.- Liverpool drew 2-2 this Saturday in the Merseyside derby against Everton, which remains the leader, in a vibrant match that resumed the Premier League on its fifth date, after the break for the FIFA dates.

In addition, Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, who is in the tenth box, achieved three vital points in his career for not losing rope with the head of the table, thanks to his victory at home against Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal (1- 0), which is in fifth place.

The Senegalese Sadio Mané (3 ′) and the Egyptian Mohamed Salah (72 ′) scored the goals of those coached by Jürgen Klopp, replicated by the English Michael Keane (19 ′) and Dominic Calvert-Lewin (81 ′).

Twice the reigning champion went ahead on the scoreboard and as many times his neighbor and revelation equaled him in these first days of the English championship. In addition, Calvert-Lewin added a new target to his locker and remains the Premier’s top scorer, with seven goals in five appearances.

Liverpool stroked the victory in the final stages of the derby thanks to a goal from Jordan Henderson (90 ′ + 2), but the referee canceled it for a very tight offside after consulting with the VAR.

With this hard-working draw, which comes after four wins in their first four games, Everton showed that their leadership in the Premier is no accident.

At the moment, the team trained by Carlo Ancelotti commands the table with 13 units, three more than Liverpool.

After conceding an embarrassing 7-2 on the previous day against Aston Villa, the ‘Reds’ add their second game without knowing the victory and, they still do not know if they will soon be able to count on their stellar defender Virgil van Dijk, who retired injured at the 11 minutes this Saturday after an ugly tackle from goalkeeper ‘toffee’ Jordan Pickford.

That neutralization between the two Liverpool teams was not taken advantage of by a Chelsea who saw Southampton tie them at three in extra time.

Timo Werner had overtaken the ‘Bleus’ with his first two goals in the Premier (15 ‘and 28’), before Daniel Ings (43 ‘) and Che Adams (57’) took the tables to the scoreboard. The German Kai Havertz scored 3-2 for Frank Lampard’s pupils, but the Danish Jannik Vestergaard (90 ′ + 2) established the final tie at three.

Yes, Manchester City took advantage of it. The current runner-up scored his second victory of the season in the Premier, first at home. The return of Argentine Sergio Agüero to the top of the attack ‘Citizen’ served as a revulsion, but the goal was the work of Raheem Sterling (23 ′).

The & # 39; Gunners & # 39; tried to speed up the game in the second act, but lacking a clear reference in attack they did not disturb the Brazilian Ederson’s goal too much.
