The Reds clearly beat Crystal Palace and temporarily put themselves at the top of the Premier League. In addition, the “Alpen Club” surprised Pep Guardiola and Man City.
Liverpool FC beat Crystal Palace in the fifth round of the English Premier League, thus taking the lead in the championship for at least one night.
For Liverpool, who won 3-2 in the Champions League against Milan during the week, Sadio Mane (43rd minute), Mohamed Salah (78) and Leipzig Naby Keita (89) scored against very persistent guests from London. For the first time, coach Jurgen Klopp allowed Ibrahima Konate to play in defense from the start, who had switched from German club Leipzig to the “Reds” team in the summer.
Surprisingly enough, Masters Manchester City did not get past Saturday’s goalless draw at home to former RB Leipzig boss Ralph Hasenhuttl’s Southampton. Three days after a 6-3 Peat Festival against Leipzig, City found surprising difficulty against Southampton and rarely reached a conclusion. Shortly before the end of the game, a header from Phil Foden was not given due to video evidence due to an offside position. City had previously benefited from the VAR. Referee John Moss had initially shown City defender Kyle Walker after a presumed foul (61) the red card and awarded the Saints a penalty. After the video evidence, he retracted the decision.
Arsenal struggled to beat Burnley 1-0 (1-0) without German goalkeeper Bernd Leno. Martin Odegaard (30) scored the decisive goal for Arsenal at Turf Moor. It was the second game in a row that Leno was not in, but new signing Aaron Ramsdale was against Arsenal. The London team won both games without conceding a goal.
