Liverpool FC with coach Jürgen Klopp first climbed to the top of the table on the eighth day of the Premier League.

The Reds prevailed at Watford FC after a superior performance 5-0 (2-0).

The ex-Hoffenheimer Roberto Firmino was successful three times.

Claudio Ranieri's debut a few days before his 70th birthday clearly failed.

The Italian had taken over the club as head coach before the international break.

In the past he worked in England for Leicester City, among others, with the club he had sensationally won the English championship in 2016.

For Ranieri, who sat on the bench in 226 Premier League games, it was the biggest bankruptcy in England to date.

Sadio Mané (9th), who scored for the 100th time in the top division, Firmino (37./52./90.+1) and Mohamed Salah (54th) scored the goals for the Klopp team.

The Senegalese Mané reached the 100-goal barrier in the Premier League as the third African player after Didier Drogba and his teammate Salah (104 hits each).

With 18 points, Liverpool replaced Champions League winners Chelsea (16) initially at the top of the table.

However, the Blues with coach Thomas Tuchel can regain first place on Saturday evening thanks to a success at newly promoted Brentford FC.

After two draws against defending champions Manchester City (2: 2) and in Brentford (3: 3), the Klopp club celebrated another victory in the Premier League.
