EPL: Liverpool Restore Five-Point Lead At Chelsea, Man Utd Beaten By West Ham
Liverpool hold on to pick up a huge victory at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea on Sunday evening.
In what was a hard-fought contest, the Reds went 2-0 up in the first half through goals from Trent Alexander-Arnold and Roberto Firmino.
The Blues, meanwhile, had a Cesar Azpilicueta effort ruled out through a VAR decision.
N’Golo Kante did get one back for Chelsea in the second period, but the visitors clinched the victory.
Liverpool moved back five points clear at the top of the Premier League with a 2-1 win at Chelsea on another miserable day for Manchester United as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men lost to West Ham on Sunday.
United are already 10 points behind the leaders after just six games, as Liverpool continue to set a relentless pace, and next face Arsenal, who came from a goal and a man down to beat Aston Villa 3-2 at the Emirates.
