The 2-2 draw between Arsenal and Tottenham at the Emirates Stadium allows Liverpool and Brighton, both victorious, to leapfrog the two teams and move respectively to second and third place in the Premier League standings after six games. Manchester City leads with 18 points, two ahead of the Reds, who defeated West Ham 3-1, and three ahead of Brighton, who get on the podium by beating Bournemouth with the same result. At -4 from the leaders are Arsenal and Tottenham, followed by Aston Villa, who inflicted the third defeat of the season on Chelsea.
Salah's first-half penalty goals, Nunez and DjogoJota in the second half sealed Juergen Klopp's fifth win in a row, who will host Spurs in London next Sunday. In Brighton, an own goal by Kerkezha allowed De Zerbi's men to close on 1-1 the first half and then impose themselves in the second half with a double by the Japanese Mitoma. The Italian coach will now prepare for the next challenge, with Unai Emery's Villa, who won 1-0 at StamfordBridge and put salt on Chelsea's disastrous start to the season, 14th in the standings, and further pressure on Blues colleague Mauricio Pochettino.
The London derby was very hard-fought, with the Gunners twice ahead and reached in both cases by Son, who with five goals is second in the scorers standings behind Haaland, already at eight.
