Liverpool are on top of the English Premier League with 12 points, after beating Leicester 2-1 at King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Goals by Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino did the damage in the first half and the Jurgen Klopp boys were able to hold their ground well after Alisson gifted Rachid Ghezzal a debut goal in the second half.

Liverpool have now notched their fourth consecutive Premier League victory – the first time they’ve ever won their opening four of a campaign.

Said Sadio Mane who scored the first goal for Liverpool in the 10th minute: “It’s very important to score for the team. We just try to do our best for the team. We played some good football, but the attitude made the difference as it was a very tough game for us. We’re all pushing all the time, and it’s important as a team to work together”

In another related development, Chelsea made it four wins from four Premier League games under Maurizio Sarri after goals by substitute Pedro and Eden Hazard helped see off Bournemouth.

The Cherries had produced a stubborn defensive display to frustrate the hosts before Pedro struck seven minutes after replacing Willian.

The Spaniard exchanged passes with fellow substitute Olivier Giroud before his deflected finish beat former Blues keeper Asmir Begovic.

Hazard doubled the lead with a quality finish from an angle while Bournemouth's ex-Chelsea defender Nathan Ake blazed over from three yards out when the game was goalless. (NAN/BBC)
