premier league, Sports
Manchester United kept their place at the top of the Premier League table with a goalless draw at defending champions Liverpool, as goalkeeper Alisson's heroics denied them a victory at Anfield. Liverpool enjoyed much of the first-half possession and created several chances, including Andy Robertson's half-volley over the crossbar and Roberto Firmino's tame effort into the hands of David De Gea. Man Utd came close to breaking the deadlock with their only shot of the opening period, Bruno Fernandes' free-kick flying inches wide. After the break, Harry Maguire denied Firmino a tap-in before Mohamed Salah's shot was off target. Alisson then kept out Fernandes with a fine reaction save, before superbly denying Paul Pogba's close-range strike late on, either side of Thiago forcing ...

Paul Pogba's second-half strike enough to take Red Devils three points clear of Liverpool Paul Pogba scored the goal that took Manchester United top of the Premier League table, as they won 1-0 at Burnley.

Man Utd had the better of the chances, with Anthony Martial firing just over before being denied by Nick Pope, while Harry Maguire had a header ruled out for a foul late in the first half. Burnley twice came close to equalising late on, with substitute Matej Vydra's effort deflected wide in the 87th minute and James Tarkowski miskicking a golden chance in added time. United held on to move on to 36 points, three points clear of defending c...

I'm so happy to have that.  On Emile Smith Rowe's performances...It means that we believe in him, that he's playing really well, that he's growing and bec...
