Day 5 - Premier League: Liverpool have lost their first BPL’s game this season, while Everton remain the only unbeaten team so far

Liverpool 0 Southampton 1

After a 2-2 draw against Swansea City last Monday, the Liverpool’s manager Brendan Rodgers expected to bounce back today in front of their fans at Anfield where they received Southampton managed by the former international Argentine defender Mauricio Pochettino. However, Sturridge, the club’s top soccer, couldn’t avoid his team-mates their first defeat since the start of the 13-14 Premier League campaign. A second-half goal from the former Lyon man Lovren in 54’ was enough to secure this important win against the "in-form" Reds.

West Ham United 2 Everton 3

3 consecutive draws in their first 3 Premier League games this season put the replacement of David Moyes, Roberto Martinez, under pressure at Everton, but the former Wigan manager stayed confident ahead of their game against the Mourinho’s team last week. This confidence has paid for they beat Chelsea 1-0, and today they were looking for their second consecutive wins against West Ham United. It was such a difficult game for the Martinez’s men because they’ve been lead twice, and each time the left-back Baines has answered on free kick; before the Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku came from the bench to give them the 2-3 victory in 85’. Everton are now the only unbeaten team after  5 days, yet count only 9 points.

In brief, the Frenchman striker Loic Remy has scored twice but that wasn’t enough because Brady has done the same, and Aluko also scored to help Hull City having, against Newcastle United, their second season’s 3 points. After this new Sunderland’s defeat, we can say  the days of the Italian manager Paolo Di Canio are numbered as the manager because of the poorly start of the season where they registered 4 defeats and 1 draw. Thanks to the ex-Lazio striker Kozak, Aston Villa have beaten Norwich City 1-0.
