Liverpool – Chelsea 4:1, Liverpool footballers outclassed Chelsea and lead the table by five points ahead of City

--

The table leader went for a fourth straight win in the first half. In the 23rd minute, Diogo Jota opened the scoring after breaking through the Chelsea defenders, and Conor Bradley added the first goal for Liverpool six minutes before the break. The 20-year-old Northern Ireland international headed in a goal for Dominik Szoboszlai in the second half, after which Christopher Nkunku gave the visitors from London a glimmer of hope in the 71st minute.

Eight minutes later, however, Luis Díaz sealed the score after a pass from the underdog of the match, Darwin Núñez, who hit the goal structure four times. The “Reds” thus won the second match after the unexpected announcement of coach Jürgen Klopp that he would retire early at the end of the season.

Manchester City also claimed their fourth victory in a row, and Julián Álvarez, who celebrated his 24th birthday today, deserved it with two goals. The Argentinian world champion scored in the 16th and 22nd minutes, first with a header from close range and then after a signal from Kevin de Bruyne, who, instead of the expected cross into the penalty area, sent Álvarez out with a pass on the ground. Rodri increased the lead of the championship team shortly after the break, and the Belgian representative Ameen Al-Dakhil reduced it to 1:3 in the set-up.
