25th game, 24th win: Jurgen Klopp takes a lead over Liverpool for the English Premier League title. In the 4-0 (0-0) home game against Southampton, the still unbeaten Reds struggled only before the break and eventually impressively increased the lead over the “persecutors” Manchester City to at least 22 points until Sunday. City will then have to fly to Tottenham Hotspur.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (47th), Jordan Henderson (60th) and Egyptian star striker Mohamed Salah (72nd/90th) scored for Liverpool. In the finals, Southampton, coached by former Bundesliga coach Ralph Hasenhàttl, had nothing to do with Liverpool’s dominance.

In the next match, on 15 February, the Klopp-Elf will have to play against Norwich City. German coach Daniel Farke’s team won 0-0 at Newcastle United on Saturday but remain five points behind Watford (2-3 against Everton).

The double rake pack is enough only to draw

Earlier, Chelsea had been without a win for the third time in a row, despite the first career double-pack of German international Antonio R’diger. The fourth-place Blues did not overtake third-place Leicester City 2-2 (0-0) on Saturday and are still eight points behind Leicester.

The defender, who scored the last of his previous three Premier League goals in October 2018, gave the visitors the lead shortly after the break after a corner (46th). Leicester’s surprise team turned things around thanks to goals from Harvey Barnes (54′) and Ben Chilwell (64′) before a header was headed again after a free kick (71′).

No goals were scored between Manchester United and Wolverhampton Wanderers in the evening. The Red Devils remain in sixth place in the standings.
