Ledley King's Talking Points

Liverpool dropped their first points of the season after a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford. VAR took much of the spotlight while Klopp relied on a late goal again to secure a point. Liverpool have now scored 28 goals in the final 15 minutes of the match since the start of last season.

Man City took all three points from Crystal Palace with a team that contained no recognised central defenders. Goals from Gabriel Jesus and David Silva gave Pep an important three points on the road, on the back of their recent slip against Wolves. City now trail Liverpool by six points.

Everton wrapped up their first Premier League win in five matches on Saturday with a well-deserved 2-0 scoreline against West Ham.  When asked if he was feeling the pressure, Marco Silva said: “Every day I go home with my conscience really clear because I know I did my best to put my players at the best level I can. Why would I be nervous?”

Celtic scored four goals in nine minutes as they returned to the top of the Scottish Premiership after thrashing Ross County. It finished 6-0, putting the hoops at the summit with one more goal scored than Rangers, who could only draw at Hearts.

Wigan ended Nottingham Forest's 10-game unbeaten run, with Jamal Lowe's first Wigan goal earning the Latics a third successive home win. The result lifted Wigan 5 points above the drop-zone, while Forest missed the chance to go top of the Championship. 

Three second-half goals ended Bristol City's 10-match unbeaten run, as Luton Town earned their fourth victory of the season. Mpanzu's curling shot made it 1-0 after the break, before Harry Cornick doubled the lead and an own goal sealed victory deep into injury time.

After missing their last four penalties in the Championship, Stoke’s Lee Gregory made it fifth time lucky in a 2-0 win against Fulham. The result was enough to move the Potters off the bottom of the table, with Barnsley now filling that spot.
