EPL: Liverpool go top as Arsenal hold Man City 



EPL Liverpool

Liverpool have returned to the summit of the Premier League table after their 2-1 win over Brighton and the stalemate recorded in the Super Sunday clash between Manchester City and Arsenal.

The Reds took to the pitch first and the game at Anfield initially didn’t go as planned as Brighton took the lead just two minutes into the game.

Liverpool’s defenders failed to clear Simon Adingra’s square ball inside, and it fell to Danny Welbeck, making his 100th appearance for Brighton in the Premier League, to slam into the net just 87 seconds into the game.

Jürgen Klopp’s side came into the game knowing they had recently struggled against Brighton. Having won each of their first six Premier League games against them, Liverpool had won just one of their last seven against Brighton (four draws, two losses).

 Brighton had also avoided defeat on their last three visits to Anfield, winning once and drawing twice.

Despite their shaky start in Sunday’s outing, Liverpool grew into the game with Luiz Diaz getting the equaliser before the half-hour mark before Mohamed Salah sealed victory with the winning goal in the second half.

Comeback kings

Indeed, Liverpool have grown accustomed to finding their way back into matches after going behind. 

Coming into this game, they had won more points from losing positions (23) than any other team in the Premier League this season. Having conceded so early, on this occasion they had almost an entire 90 minutes to fight their way back into this one and they did.

The three points secured against Brighton took Liverpool’s tally to 67 which meant a winner had to emerge in clash at the Etihad between City and Arsenal if either would upstage the Reds at the top.


Unfortunately, neither the Cityzens nor the Gunners could muster a win as they settled for a barren draw.

Arsenal have dropped to second with 65 points while defending champions, City are third on the log with 64 points.

Mikel Arteta’s men will hope to return to winning ways in their next game against Luton Town while City take on Aston Villa and Liverpool try Sheffield United for size on Thursday.
