Rudiger scores for Chelsea
United won thanks to Torrent Ronaldo
Cristiano Ronaldo is back in three games for Manchester United – already scoring his fourth goal in a Premier League match against West Ham United. This keeps the club at the top of the table. There, Chelsea FC will not allow Liverpool FC to go. Also, meet Antonio Rediger.
English Champions League winners FC Chelsea, along with German coach Thomas Tuchel, scored their next victory in the Premier League at 5 p.m. London beat local rivals Tottenham Hotspur 3-0 (0-0). 36-year-old defender Thiago Silva Head (49th minute) and N’Golo Kanté scored a brace from 20 meters (57th) before German national defender Antonio Rudiger scored for Chelsea.
The Blues, who also played national star Kai Howertz from the start, had to do without their ailing goalkeeper Edward Mendy. For Senegalese, Spain’s Copa Arisabalaga is still the most expensive goalkeeper in football history with a transfer fee of 80 million euros, but is probably sitting on the bench at Chelsea. Timo Werner, who acted as a comedian after Lukaku’s arrival, played for Howarts and missed the preliminary decision 78 minutes later.
Chelsea are still unbeaten this season, winning six of their last seven games, including the European Super Cup. Due to Spurs’ victory, the Blues drew with league leaders Liverpool FC in points and goals. Coach Jorgen Klopp’s team won 3-0 (1-0) against Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Man United also benefits from misunderstandings
Manchester United remain in third place – partly thanks to superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese also scored in the third game since returning for the English football champions. Ronaldo equalized after a 2-1 (1-1) win over West Ham United in the 35th minute when the Hammers took the lead through Syed Benrahma (30th).
Man United’s last winning goal came from Jesse Lingard (89), who played on loan for West Ham last season. During the dramatic stop, the hosts were fined a handful after video evidence. But a special substitute, Mark Noble, failed on a shot from United keeper David de Gea.
Brighton & Hove Albion (2-1 against Leicester City) are one point behind the lead trio. Defending champions Manchester City have trailed top teams with zero points against Southampton FC, while Everton FC, who had previously drawn on points, fell 3-0 at Aston Villa for the first time this season.
