Liverpool suffer blow

Virgil van Dijk faces a long spell on the sidelines after suffering an ACL injury, while Manchester United won and Arsenal’s poor record against their big-six rivals continued

The Premier League threw up another weekend of incredible stories, with some horror tackles, some shock results and again, plenty of goals.

Liverpool’s title defence suffered a huge blow when Virgil Van Dijk was left needing knee surgery following an awful challenge from Jordan Pickford, which went unpunished.

Tottenham blew a three-goal lead with just 12 minutes remaining as West Ham pulled off a history-making late comeback.

Manchester United scored three late goals to beat Newcastle 4-1 as they bounced back from their humbling by Spurs last time out

And while Chelsea still need to master the art, Manchester City proved that decent defending is still a thing as they ensured Arsenal’s struggles away to their big six rivals continued.

The weekend’s top-flight action will be completed on Monday when West Brom host Burnley and Leeds entertain Wolves.
