Liverpool continue impressive run

Liverpool continued its impressive run, defeating Chelsea, who failed to maintain their unbeaten start, with a 2-1 victory at Stamford Bridge in the English Premier League, yesterday.

Diego Costa scored his fifth goal in five matches and Jordan Henderson scored the second for Liverpool.

Liverpool has scored four goals in each of its wins over both Arsenal and Leicester, and also gained a point from a draw at Tottenham since the start of the English Premier League season.

Aside from a disappointing 2-0 loss at Burnley, Juergen Klopp's side has been impressive especially the fluid forward line of Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and new signing Sadio Mane.

Only Manchester City, which has won all four of its games, has more points than Chelsea so far this season.

Man City will put its winning start to the season on the line at home to Bournemouth, having taken its run of successive victories to seven by beating Borussia Moenchengladbach 4-0 in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Pep Guardiola still hasn't tasted defeat as City manager.

After his hat trick against Moenchengladbach, Sergio Aguero drops out of the team for Saturday's match. He is serving the second match of a three-game domestic suspension for elbowing an opponent.
