Liverpool continued their bright start to the season in yet another slim victory which would have seen the Red win comfortably after series of misses.

The YNWA side got up with a quick goal from Firmino in the 1st minute but it was ruled offside.

Liverpool kept the tempo of the game even though both were creating chances but the Reds kept showing their qualities on the pitch, creating more chances before Wijnaldum put his teammates in front with a sublime header as they finished 1-nil in the first half.

The second half was boisterous as the fans were motivating the home to side to push for a comeback.

The fluidity of the game continued while James Milner covered the depth of the field: few minutes later, Firmino made his mark by registering his name on the score sheet from the mistake made by Spurs’ second choice goalkeeper Michel Vorm who allowed the ball to pass through his hands.

Spurs man of the match, Lucas Maura was really impressive and energetic as he came close to scoring when he found his way pass Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez, marauding towards the 18-yard box but his shot struck the post.

Never say die home side scored a brilliant goal through Eric Lamela in the very late hour of the game as Klopp’s men breathe again with another win making it five from five.

Liverpool will travel to Paris on Tuesday with the hope of continuing the 100% record.

The Gunners are still celebrating their victory over their Ukrainian opponents in their Europa League encounter last night.

The Gunners put four goals past Vorskla Poltava, while, Bernd Leno, who was making his debut appearance for the club, conceded two goals which turned out to be a mere consolation.

There were many positives to bring out of the game but here are just lessons learnt from the encounter.

Torreira needs to be starting under Unai Emery

Arsenal fans have been hoping to see Torreira in the club’s starting XI since his blistering display against Chelsea in the second game of the season, but their calls weren’t heard by Emery who prefers Matteo Guendouzi ahead of the Uruguay international.

The Spanish tactician eventually gave the midfielder the chance to play from the start and he was wonderful throughout the game. His positional awareness and defensive ability were wonderful.

Just as thought by the Gunners faithful, it is high time he takes his due position in the starting lineup.

Emery’s mission to help Aubameyang was accomplished

After five matches, the Gabonese striker could manage just a goal which is unacceptable for a player of his qualities.

Emery believes the former Borussia Dortmund player needs to regain his confidence by scoring goals.

To help him regain his self-confidence, Emery started the player in a game that could have been executed by fringe members of the team.

The gaffer’s mission to help Auba return to goalscoring form was accomplished as the player scored two great goals.

With this goals, the Gabonese striker is reportedly ready to light up the Premier League with many goals for the rest of the campaign.

Arsenal win with huge goal-margin

Arsenal were at home to their Ukrainian opponents Vorskla Poltava and Unai Emery’s men began their Europa League campaign on winning note.

The Gunners were in possession of the ball for a larger portion of the first period but they were unable to convert their chances.

However, the home side eventually break the deadlock via Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s goal after a great square-pass from Alex Iwobi, who had an electrifying performance throughout the encounter.

Aubameyang doubled the Gunners lead in the second half of the game before substitutes Danny Welbeck and Mesut Ozil scored each to bring the game behind Vorskla’s reach.

The Ukrainian side scored two quick goals but it was too late to get a miraculous comeback as the game ended 4-2 in favour of the home side.

Elsewhere, Arsenal target Ever Banega scored twice to help his side Sevilla to a comfortable 5-1 win over Belgian side Standard Liege.

Sevilla, who won the competition for three consecutive seasons in 2014, 2015 and 2016, were impressive from the start of the encounter through to the end.

Wissam Ben Yedder also scored a brace to ensure that the Sevilla side recorded a winning start to their Europa League campaign.

Chelsea is enjoying a successful campaign under Maurizio Sarri while they extended a winning run of form against Greek side PAOK on Thursday where Chelsea’s No.11 walked off the pitch in the late period of the game.

Albeit, they took the Lion’s share of possession and an early goal from Willian via a brilliant attack but they finished the game with what looked like Sarri wasn’t comfortable with.

The Spanish player was unable to endure with his injury sustained few minutes to the end of 90minutes from a collision with goalkeeper Alexandros Paschakalis, while Sarri had already made complete changes, he had to manage 10 men against PAOK afterwards.

Pedro posted on his Instagram page to pacify the nerves of his followers.

“Everything’s ok despite the incident at the end of the game. Come on Blues!”

While at the end of the match Sarri replied with response to Pedro’s status:

“I don’t know exactly the situation,” the Blues manager said.

The 59-year-old manager admitted that he wasn’t happy with the score-line but he was pleased with the three points.

Sarri’s men will travel to London to face West Ham on Thursday, a place where they struggled under Antonio Conte with a 1-nil defeat last season.
