Salah finally puts Liverpool on top of Watford, 1-0 off a nice feed from Mané

Did I catch a double eagle celebration by Mo?

Robertson made that goal with the run as furthest man forward after busting his ass for 89 minutes, just outstanding

Toffees get a Siggy goal and beat Cardiff at Goodison 1-0. Dominated possession, had several chances but not quite enough quality to put another past Etheridge (who was booked for time-wasting). Cardiff were resolute and there were a few nervy moments toward the end but the Bluebirds never seriously threatened.

Everton now 5-1-1 in their last 7 and up to sixth in the table heading into the derby at Anfield.

Dream start for Spurs; and with that starting back line they needed it.

What was Kepa doing?
I think he couldn’t see because Luiz was directly in front of it and then Luiz used the avant garde defensive tactic of jumping out of the way of the ball rather than blocking it.

The color guy said that Kepa had done a little jump when Kane got the ball and couldn’t plant his feet in time to cut and dive towards the ball. As much as I love Harry, that wasn’t exactly a blistering strike.

Henderson quite captainly getting himself sent off there
Just catching up. This squad needs Keita’s creativity and speed of play. Klopp has had a list of reasons why Keita hasn’t been getting run: injuries, average performances, brutal international matches...the only way to get in form is to play.

Future USMNT managers David Wagner has his Huddersfield side up 1-0 and playing with great confidence at Wolves just after the half. Wolves made 2 attack-minded substitutions at the break, so the opportunities to counter should be there for Huddersfield. A win would put Wagner's side at the top of the 7 team heap at the bottom of the table.

And Wolves respond with an extremely close goal line call. The replay shows barely a fraction of the all was still over the line.

And now Huddersfield counter and miss by a fraction. Match is opening up nicely.

Edit: and Mooy doubles the lead in the 76th minute with a fine free kick - 20yds out, a few yards wide to the keeper’s left, bends a low shot around the outside of the wall, takes one bounce and then caroms inside the near post off Patricio’s glove. Superb.

WOL-HUD caused heartburn in the fantasy PL community; many players added multiple Wolves defenders for this one and got burned.

While no one has been paying attention, these teams have been quietly moving in opposite directions. Wolves has only 1 point out of its last possible 15, while Huddersfield has 7/9 in its last three games. Seems as if the league has figured Wolves out.
