Liverpool only drew 3-3 when they traveled to Brentford headquarters on Saturday (25/9/2021). But these results are enough to deliver Mohamed Salah et al perched alone at the top with a collection of 14 points.
Even so, Liverpool’s position is still far from safe. Besides it’s still early in the season, the competitors are also just a point away. Unmitigated, there are four teams that are closely following the 19-times Premier League champions.
Manchester City trailing by 13 points after beating Chelsea 1-0. The Blues are now down to third, but with the same number of points. The same goes for Manchester United yesterday’s painful 0-1 loss to Aston Villa.
One other team that both have 13 points is Everton, who yesterday overthrew Norwich City 2-0. But Rafa Benitez’s squad ranks fifth because of the ‘worst’ goal difference when compared to Man City, Chelsea and MU.
In 6th place is Brighton & Hove Albion which has collected 12 points, but has only played five times. If Brighton is able to beat Crystal Palace on Tuesday (28/9) early morning WIB, the club nicknamed The Seagulls will shift Liverpool from the top of the standings.
West Ham are seventh with 11 points after silencing Leeds United 2-1, followed by Villa in eighth with 10 points.
