Liverpool turns game against Palace – Man United goes down against Bournemouth

First after Arsenal defeat

Joker Harvey Elliott gave Liverpool FC at least a temporary lead in the Premier League with a last-minute goal. The midfielder scored in the first minute of added time and secured coach Jürgen Klopp’s team a 2-1 (0-0) win at Crystal Palace on matchday 16 in London on Saturday.

Previously, star striker Mohamed Salah (76th) equalized for Liverpool with his 200th goal in the Reds’ uniform and at the same time his 150th goal in the Premier League in the 247th game (to Liverpool’s record scorer). In doing so, he drew level with former Reds striker Michael Owen, who, however, played significantly fewer games.

With their eleventh win of the season, Liverpool pushed Arsenal FC out of first place in the English championship. Former Mainz Bundesliga player Jean-Philippe Mateta took the lead for 15th in the table with a penalty kick in the 57th minute. Crystal Palace scored. Shortly before Salah’s equalizer, London’s Jordan Ayew had to leave the field with a yellow-red card (75′).

Arsenal lose at Aston Villa and give up the league lead

Update 8:59 p.m.: Arsenal could have moved past Liverpool again in the evening against third-placed Aston Villa, but lost 1-0 in Birmingham after conceding an early goal. John McGinn scored the goal in the seventh minute. According to video evidence, the supposed equalizer by national player Kai Havertz shortly before the final whistle was not given due to handball. After winning six competitive games in a row, Arsenal suffered another defeat.

Premier League: Man United go down against Bournemouth

Meanwhile, Manchester United failed to catch up on points with their troubled city rivals Manchester City (30 points), at least temporarily – and clearly: outsiders AFC Bournemouth won 3-0 at Old Trafford. The “Cherries” have been unbeaten in five games and have now moved away from the relegation places, while the “Red Devils” could fall back to eighth place on Sunday. Things have actually been looking good for Erik ten Hag and Co. with four wins since the eleventh matchday.

Former Chelsea and Liverpool striker Dominic Solanke gave Bournemouth an early lead with his eighth goal of the season in the 5th minute. Substitute midfielder Philip Billing (68th) and defense chief Marcos Senesi (73rd) increased the score in the second half. Man United recorded 20 shots, but only a few that actually hit the opponent’s goal – Bournemouth were much more effective.
