Liverpool Return To Premier League Summit After Routing Hudderfield

Liverpool returned to the summit of the Premier League after routing Huddersfield 5-0.

Liverpool led by three goals during the interval after goals from Keita, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.

Keita struck Liverpool’s fastest ever Premier League goal after only 15 seconds, to give the host the lead, and they never looked back as they pilled on the pressure.

Salah and Mane each scoredd their second in the second half to move the Reds two points above second placed Manchester City, who have a game in hand and can move back to first position if they win at Burnley on Sunday.

The change at the top of the league is the record 29th time in the season as both teams have tried to better each other for the maor part of the season.

Liverpool are currently the chasers after City’s win over Manchester United on Wednesday gave the later the advantage in the race.

But Liverpool would feel they did a good ob against Huddersfield as the five goals cuts the eight-goals deficit City currently have.

The rout was started when goalkeeper Jonas Lossl played a pass out of the Huddersfield area to Jon Goren Stankovic who was closed down and robbed of the ball by Keita, who exchanged pass with Salah before lobbing the keeper.
