London, November 27 (Xinhua)-Liverpool continued to put pressure on British Premier League leader Chelsea with a 4-0 victory over Southampton at home on Saturday.
Diogo Jota scored two goals on the side of Jurgen Klopp in the 32nd and 97th minutes. Thiago Alcantara and Virgil van Dijk also found the home team’s net.
The Reds are currently sitting one point behind Chelsea, who is hosting Manchester United on Sunday.
Steven Gerrard’s Premier League victory continued, with Aston Villa 2-1 defeating Crystal Palace with two wins in two games since joining the Glasgow Rangers.
Matt Targett opened the villa 15 minutes from the corner, and John McGinn’s first shot guaranteed victory five minutes later, despite Marc Guéhi scoring a comforting goal in the second half of the home team.
Arsenal have returned to victory with a 2-0 victory at Newcastle United’s home after a 4-0 defeat to Liverpool last weekend. Visitors did not win in the first 13 games of the season.
Newcastle coach Eddie Howe was able to sit in the dugout for the first time after recovering from COVID-19 and saw Baccary Saka and Gabriel Martinelli’s second half goals condemning his team’s defeat.
Norwich City, meanwhile, scored another point, extending his undefeated run to three games and drawing 0-0 to the wolf at home. Norwich would be disappointed that wolf keeper Jose Sa couldn’t score all three points after denying both Teemu Pukki and Lukas Rupp for a late save.
In the final match on Saturday, Brighton and Leeds United drew 0-0, extending Brighton’s unbeatable run to eight matches. Brighton had most of the chances, but the well-known failure in front of the goal sacrificed them a chance to win.
