Editor's thoughts: Every week, teams in the Premier League are just waiting for Liverpool to drop the ball but they just keep powering on. Their latest victory comes at Stamford bridge and it looked like it was not going to be an easy ride until VAR came to their rescue. An excellent free kick by Alexander-Arnold got them off to the perfect start and Firmino made sure of the points. In the end, Kante's goal was nothing more than a consolation for Frank Lampard's team. It's still early days in the season but it looks like Liverpool means business this time round, with Manchester City shrugging off the cobwebs from last week's defeat to put the pressure on in second place. Elsewhere, Man United looked lifeless against a confident West Ham United and it was no surprise when they lost 0-2. What must be more worrying though will be the sight of Rashford limping off with a groin injury to add to the long list of players on the treatment table. They are seriously short of strikers upfront and it could be matter of time before Mason Greenwood has to come to the fore. For the United fans though, that may not be a bad thing.
