Premier League Live: Liverpool, Manchester City registers one sided victories in Premier League

Premier League on Thursday once again showed why Liverpool and Manchester City are the best teams of the league’s season this year. Liverpool easily got passed Brighton 3-1 and City brutally thrashed Newcastle for a 5-0 win. 

Liverpool are three wins away from a record Premier League points haul after beating a spirited Brighton side on Wednesday evening.

Two goals from Mohamed Salah, and a long-range effort from Jordan Henderson, was enough to pick up three more points at the Amex Stadium.

Premier League Live : Manchester City thrashed Newcastle 5-0

Manchester City returned to winning ways in style by thrashing hapless Newcastle at Etihad Stadium.

Pep Guardiola’s side were surprisingly beaten at Southampton in their previous Premier League game but two goals in the opening 20 minutes against the Magpies effectively settled this contest.

Gabriel Jesus ended his nine-game goal drought by converting from David Silva’s cutback, while Riyad Mahrez swept home the second from Kevin de Bruyne’s pass.

It got worse for Newcastle in the second period when Federico Fernandez inadvertently deflected Matt Ritchie’s attempted clearance into his own net and David Silva added the fourth by curling in a sublime free-kick.

Raheem Sterling came off the bench to add the fifth for City in injury-time, rolling in from Silva’s pass.

On Tuesday, Chelsea moved up to third on Tuesday with a narrow win over Crystal Palace before Leicester City had to settle for a point at Arsenal.
