EPL: Liverpool Win Merseyside Derby As London Derby Ends In Draw

Mohammed Salah’s second-half brace gave Liverpool a 2-0 victory over 10-man Everton in the first Merseyside derby of the season.

Everton lost Young to a 37th-minute red card, which altered their game plan. However, it was Salah’s 75th-minute penalty that broke the deadlock after Michael Keane handled the ball inside the box.

Deep into extra time, the Egyptian international was handy again to put the game beyond Everton with his second goal of the day.

 

In the London Derby played at Stamford Bridge, Arsenal came from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Chelsea.

Cole Palmer put the home side in front through a 15th-minute penalty after William Saliba handled the ball and was confirmed by the VAR.

Mykhailo Mudryk’s speculative effort caught Arsenal keeper David Raya napping to double Chelsea’s lead.

Thirteen minutes from full-time Chelsea keeper Robert Sanchez offered Arsenal a goal in a platter of silver as his poor clearance allowed Declan Rice to pull one back for the Gunners.

Seven minutes later, substitute Leandro Trossard scored the equalizer as Chelsea failed to deal properly with Bukayo Saka’s cross.
