Liverpool matched the Premier League record with a 9-0 hammering of Bournemouth on Saturday, while Erling Haaland’s hat-trick sparked Manchester City’s comeback 4-2 triumph over Crystal Palace.

On a memorable day in the Premier League, 10-man Chelsea defeated Leicester City 2-1, while Manchester United’s comeback continued with a 1-0 victory against Southampton.

Liverpool dominated the show as they came back from a 2-1 deficit against Manchester United in spectacular fashion.

After going three games without a win, Liverpool bounced back by matching Manchester United’s 9-0 triumphs against Ipswich in 1995 and Southampton in 2021, as well as Leicester’s thumping of Southampton in 2019.

Luis Diaz scored his first goal at Anfield after only three minutes, heading home Roberto Firmino’s cross.

On the stroke of halftime, Virgil Van Dijk headed in Andrew Robertson’s corner as Liverpool scored five goals in a Premier League game for the first time.

Chris Mepham’s own goal from Alexander-cross Arnold’s in the 46th minute was followed by Firmino’s seventh in the 62nd minute.

Fabio Carvalho’s first goal since joining Fulham in the summer made it eight in the 80th minute.

With five minutes remaining, Diaz scored the record ninth goal from Kostas Tsimikas’ corner, matching Liverpool’s highest ever top-flight margin of victory, established against Palace in 1989.

Champions City completed another amazing comeback to defeat Palace at the Etihad Stadium.

Palace took the lead in the fourth minute after Eberechi Eze’s free-kick deflected off John Stones and into the net.

Home the 21st minute, City went further down as Palace defender Joachim Andersen was left unmarked to head in Eze’s corner.

Last Saturday, the champions rallied from a 3-1 deficit to tie at Newcastle United, and Bernardo Silva gave them hope with a 53rd-minute deflection shot off Jeffrey Schlupp.

City equalised in the 62nd minute when Phil Foden’s cross found Haaland, who headed in his first home goal since signing in the close season.

Haaland scored his fifth goal in four games in the 70th minute, poking home from Stones’ ball following a fluid play. In the 81st minute, the Norwegian completed his hat-trick after Silva’s ball.

In a thrilling victory over Leicester, Raheem Sterling scored his first goals for Chelsea.

Sterling scored in the 47th minute, when his shot deflected off Daniel Amartey and into the net.

Sterling doubled his tally in the 63rd minute, tapping in from Reece James’ cross, before Barnes scored three minutes later with a low effort.

Erik ten Hag claimed following United’s hard-fought triumph over Southampton that they have learnt from their poor start to the season.

Ten Hag’s team was rooted to the bottom of the Premier League after losing their first two games.

However, United have rebounded from their dismal start to win consecutive league games for the first time since February.

Fernandes scored in the 55th minute, volleying home Diogo Dalot’s cross from just inside the box.

“I believe the players took some lessons from Brentford.” On the long balls, we were more compact. “Of course, we were overjoyed,” Ten Hag stated.
