In the Premier League, Tottenham is at the top of the table. Jürgen Klopp could have overtaken Liverpool FC, but the team lost points against Fulham.
Jürgen Klopp, with defending champion Liverpool FC, could not take advantage of league-leader Tottenham Hotspur’s mistake and missed the jump to the top of the English Premier League. The Reds scored just 1: 1 (0: 1) at newly promoted Fulham FC and were second behind their rivals.
Striker Mohamed Salah (79th, hand penalty) saved the guests at least one point after Bobby De Cordova-Reid Fulham had given the lead (25th). Earlier there was another personal setback for Klopp: the last accurate Portuguese Diogo Jota has been out for weeks due to a knee injury.
Even Tottenham without a win
Tottenham also remained without a win. Despite the lead, team manager Jose Mourinho’s team only played 1: 1 (1: 0) in the London derby at Crystal Palace. National striker Harry Kane (23rd) initially scored for the guests before Jeffrey Schlupp (81st) equalized.
Former Bundesliga coach Ralph Hasenhüttl continued the flight with FC Southampton. His team won 3-0 (1-0) against Sheffield United, which had not yet won and is still in a Champions League spot with 23 points. The goals were scored by Che Adams (34th), Stuart Armstrong (62nd) and Nathan Redmond (83rd).
On Saturday the German internationals Kai Havertz and Timo Werner had their second defeat of the season at Chelsea. At Everton, the Blues lost 0-1 (0-1) and still have 22 points in their account.
Four days after losing the Champions League, record champions Manchester United had also missed a sense of achievement. In the derby against runners-up City, the Red Devils had to settle for a 0-0 in the 151st league game at Old Trafford.
Last Tuesday, United lost 3-2 to Bundesliga club RB Leipzig and relegated to the Europa League. City, on the other hand, made it to the round of 16 as the group winner. Former Bayern coach Pep Guardiola’s side are unbeaten in six competitive games, but are also clearly behind its own claims in the championship.
