Manchester United beat Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool FC, with a club record


Manchester United 2-1 Tottenham Hotspur (1-1)

José Mourinho has lost a game for the first time as Tottenham coach after three wins in a row. Against Mourinho's former Manchester United club Tottenham lost 1: 2 (1: 1). Particularly Manchester's Marcus Rashford secured the victory.

United took the lead after just six minutes. Rashford dribbled left into the penalty area and struck with a low shot in the left corner (6.). Goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga, substitute for injured Hugo Lloris, seemed surprised at the severity of the deal. United remained the decisive team, had more ball possession and more degrees. Still, Tottenham equalized just before the break. After a parade by David de Gea, Dele Alli took the ball in a difficult manner, leaving two defenders with the move and scoring from close range to 1-1 (39th).

Second half also started with a quick goal. Moussa Sissoko brought down Rashford in the penalty area, referee Paul Tierney decided a penalty. It transformed Rashford to 2: 1 (49th). The picture of the first 45 minutes remained: United played better, Tottenham barely got on the offensive. United won another match after three matches without cross competition. Good for coach Ole Gunnar Soslkjaer, the coach had recently been criticized. United are eight sixth points behind the ranks to qualify for the Champions League. Tottenham are eighth, the Spurs are missing nine points in fourth place.

Liverpool FC – Everton FC 5-2 (4-2)

Liverpool FC have set a new club record. 5: 2 (4: 2) against Everton FC means the Reds have been unbeaten in 32 series matches, which is the longest series without defeat in club history. Favorite opponent helped: Everton have not won against Liverpool in 18 Premier League games.

The omens appeared to be quickly transferred to the game: After a steep pass from Sadio Mané, Divock Origi shot the ball into goal for the lead (6th). Shortly thereafter, Mané put the ball through the defense and Xherdan Shaqiri scored from a few yards to 2: 0 (17.). Everton's Michael Keane made the connection four minutes later (21st), but Liverpool's play did not come out of rhythm. Origi took a flying ball to the penalty area with the tip of his foot and lifted the ball to 3-1 over goalkeeper Jordan Pickford (32nd). It was Origi's fifth goal in a bidder against Everton. In injury time at first, Richarlison shortened to 2: 4 (45 + 3) with a flying header.

Anyone hoping for a second half with a similar goal was disappointed. In the final phase, Georginio Wijnaldum scored the fifth goal for the Reds (90th). With the win, Liverpool maintain the eight-point lead over chasing Leicester City, which won 2-0 against Watford FC. For Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp, it was the 100th victory in the Premier League in the 159th game, only José Mourinho had 100 wins in fewer matches (142).

Chelsea FC – Aston Villa 2-1 (1-1)

For the first time since joining Aston Villa in 2017, Chelsea legend John Terry returned to Stamford Bridge in a Premier League game. Terry, meanwhile assistant coach for Villa, had to face the team's defeat in London. Tammy Abraham led 1-0 to Chelsea (24th). The striker was loaned to Aston Villa last season, scoring 25 goals for Terry's team in the second division.

The guests had little hope when Trézéguet scored to equalize. After a cross he crossed the ball on the foot and stumbled into goal (41 & # 39;). A few minutes after the break, Chelsea took the lead again. Abraham crossed with his chest and Mason Mount volleyballed the ball 2-1 in goal (48th). With the win, Chelsea are still fourth on the Champions League pitch.
