Howard hit from a corner by James in the 22nd minute. At the end of the first half, Liverpool were in a corner. There was confusion in the penalty area of ”The Blues”. First, Joel hits the crossbar, then, after a shot from Sadio Mane, the ball hits James’ hand on the line.

The referee, after reviewing the video, concluded that the Chelsea defender had deliberately hit the ball. He punished him with a red card and gave him a penalty kick. Salah, despite the tense situation, remained calm and ended up on the web.
Meanwhile, Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchell has decided to increase his defense; Howard was replaced by Diego Silva. The German coach’s allegations played right into the defense. Despite a clear advantage for Liverpool, they could not score another goal.
– For the past five minutes, I have been praying that we will hold on to this decision. It was a tough game. I’m not sure if the red card is right. However, the decision must be accepted. “We are very diligent and we deserve this point,” Tuchel told the BBC.
Liverpool and Chelsea are in second place.
Earlier on Saturday, Arsenal beat defending champions Manchester City 5-0 at home in London. For the first time since the 1954/55 season, “Connercy” lost their first three league games.
– It’s time we all look in the mirror and think about what happened. Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta agrees because we really need positive results.
After 12 minutes, the “citizens” took the lead 2: 0. Ilke Kundokan (7th) scored first, followed by Ferran Torres. In the 35th minute, Swiss Granit Shaga, who had recently extended their contract with Arsenal, were shown a red card for a horrific foul on Joao Cancelo.
After that, Manchester City dominated the game further. Just before the break, Gabriel Jesus lifted 3-0, and after a change of sides, Rodrigo (53rd) and Torres (84th) scored again. Had it not been for the good performance of Bernd Leno’s goalkeeper, the “Gunners” defeat would have been even more painful.
Not only have the Arsenal players lost the first three games, they have not scored a single goal this season. They finished last in the table. Manchester City are in fifth place.
Ukasz Fabiański, who leads West Ham United, has seven points from Liverpool, Chelsea and Everton, but a well-balanced goal. On Saturday, “Mavoti” took the lead twice at home against Crystal Palace, but in the end it was a 2: 2 draw.
Goals for the hosts were scored by Pablo Fornells in the 39th minute and Michael Antonio in the 68th minute. Conor Gallagher went to “Ori” in the 58s and 70s.
Only one team has a chance to get the full score. On Sunday, Tottenham will take the lead if they beat Watford at home.
