Liverpool extends lead, Sheffield United’s late drama ensures draw

In an emphatic display, Liverpool secured a 4-0 victory against Bournemouth, extending their lead at the top of the Premier League to five points.

Darwin Nunez and Diogo Jota stole the spotlight, each scoring twice in the second half. Klopp, although unhappy with the initial performance, praised his team’s flexibility, stating, “It’s great for Darwin and great for Diogo.”

Bournemouth’s Justin Kluivert provided some first-half action, but Liverpool’s second-half resurgence secured their dominance. Nunez shifted to a central role and showcased his brilliance, making him the first player to achieve 10 goals and 10 assists for a Premier League club this season.

Meanwhile, Sheffield United staged a dramatic comeback against West Ham United, securing a 2-2 draw with a late penalty from substitute Ollie McBurnie.


The match witnessed late drama, with both sides having a man sent off. McBurnie’s penalty in the 103rd minute set a new Premier League record for the latest goal. Sheffield United, showing character and resilience, earned a crucial point.

Blades boss Chris Wilder commended his team, saying, “My side has character, resilience and a bit of bottle.” The draw leaves Sheffield United with 10 points, while West Ham remains in sixth place with 35 points.
