Liverpool finish the weekend in fourth place in the Premier League table, but Tottenham‘s defeat of Man City means the gap between the Reds’ and City is now just two points.
The Reds’ come-from-behind win at Swansea City on Saturday means Jurgen Klopp‘s side were able to take advantage of two of their main rivals playing each other on Sunday afternoon, with Spurs inflicting the first defeat of Pep Guardiola’s reign, 2-0.
Another highlight on Sunday was former Red Joe Allen levelling in the 82nd minute at Old Trafford to deny Man United victory.
That followed on from another former player, Christian Benteke, having denied Everton the three points on Friday night as they drew with Crystal Palace.
Arsenal‘s late, controversial, 1-0 win at Burnley on Sunday afternoon saw them move above Liverpool on goal difference.
It means there’s just four points between City in first and Everton in fifth. With United a further point behind in sixth on the same points as Chelsea.
At this early stage, it already looks like being a very competitive top end of the table.
Liverpool now go over a fortnight without a game due to the international break, and their first game back being at home to Man United on Monday night (17th October).
It will, remarkably, be only the Reds’ third home game of the season, and their first night match since the expansion of the new Main Stand.
54,000, Anfield at night, United as the visitors. It promises to be a huge match.
