Premier League Wrap: United Suffered Last-Gasp Equalizer as Liverpool, City Notched Wins

Manchester United suffered a last-minute equalizer at Stamford Bridge while Liverpool and Manchester City grabbed valuable wins with the latter now top of the table.

CHELSEA 2-2 MANCHESTER UNITED

Ross Barkley has scored deep into stoppage time to earn Chelsea a 2-2 English Premier League draw with Manchester United.

Substitute Barkley struck in the 96th minute to maintain Chelsea’s unbeaten league start on Saturday.

Anthony Martial looked to have given United the win with a second-half brace, cancelling out Antonio Ruediger’s opener at Stamford Bridge.

HUDDERSFIELD 0-1 LIVERPOOL

Mohamed Salah ended a four-match goal drought for Liverpool with a sublime strike that secured a nervous 1-0 Premier League victory away to Huddersfield on Saturday.

Salah has struggled for consistency this season and was a doubt for the trip to West Yorkshire after suffering a hamstring problem while on international duty with Egypt during the week.

But in the 24th minute, he steered in Xherdan Shaqiri’s pass to score his 50th goal in English club football, ensuring Liverpool ended Saturday level on points with league leaders Manchester City.

MANCHESTER CITY 5-0 BURNLEY

Manchester City’s devastating attack was back to peak form against their old goalkeeper Joe Hart as a 5-0 victory over Burnley at the Etihad on Saturday returned Pep Guardiola’s side to the top of the Premier League.

After a rare goalless outing in their last league fixture, a draw at Liverpool, City’s win featured two goals in as many minutes early in the second half from Bernardo Silva and Fernandinho, adding to Sergio Aguero’s first-half effort, before Riyad Mahrez and Leroy Sane completed the rout.

De Bruyne returned against Burnley after a long injury layoff.

WEST HAM 0-1 SPURS

Erik Lamela fired Tottenham into the Premier League’s top four as the revitalised winger clinched a 1-0 win against London rivals West Ham on Saturday.

Lamela struck with a cool header late in the first half at the London Stadium to give Tottenham their fourth successive league victory.

That made it five goals in just eight appearances this season for Lamela, who was making only his second league start of the campaign.

WOLVES 0-2 WATFORD

Watford struck twice in 58 seconds and cruised past Wolverhampton 2-0 to end a five-match winless run in the English Premier League on Saturday.

Watford rose above Wolves into seventh.

Wolves has conceded only one goal in its last seven games in all competitions, but Watford blew them away midway through the first half.

Abdoulaye Doucoure set up midfielder Etienne Capoue to hit a 30-yard drive through Conor Coady’s legs into the bottom corner, without goalkeeper Rui Patricio moving.

Just 58 seconds later Doucoure fed Roberto Pereyra on the left, and the forward sent a brilliant finish over Patricio and into the roof of the net.

NEWCASTLE 0-1 BRIGHTON

Newcastle dropped to the bottom of the English Premier League after extending its winless start to nine games in losing to Brighton 1-0 at home on Saturday.

There was a touch of fortune about Beram Kayal’s 29th-minute strike, which came via a deflection off Jose Izquierdo’s volley, on an afternoon when Brighton striker Glenn Murray left the field on a stretcher with a head injury. Newcastle’s defeat was all the harder to take for manager Rafael Benitez as he saw his team create more than enough chances to take at least a point.

CARDIFF 4-2 FULHAM

Cardiff recorded its first win of the season in the English Premier League by beating Fulham 4-2 and moved off the bottom of the standings on Saturday.

Fulham scored the best goal of the game – through Andre Schurrle’s 30-meter strike – but the league’s leakiest defence soon conceded twice, to Josh Murphy and Bobby Reid.

Ryan Sessegnon equalized before halftime with his first Premier League goal, but makeshift striker Callum Paterson restored Cardiff’s lead, and substitute Kadeem Harris secured the victory three minutes from time.

Fulham, which has conceded 25 goals in nine games, dropped into the bottom three.
