Premier League: Zwei Eigentore – Leicester schießt Liverpool zum Sieg
Team manager Jürgen Klopp is still on the rise in the Premier League with top English football club Liverpool FC.
Still without World Cup discovery Cody Gakpo, whose move from PSV Eindhoven can only officially be completed on New Year’s Day, the Reds celebrated their fourth league win in a row despite a poor performance in a 2-1 (2-1) win over Leicester City. What was extremely strange, however, was how it came about.
Own goal brace within seven minutes
Leicester central defender Wout Faes scored twice in his own goal (38′, 45′). He stood there with outstretched arms and couldn’t believe it himself. He also unwittingly made history: Faes is only the fourth player in the Premier League to score two own goals in a game.
His team-mate Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall put the Foxes ahead in the fourth minute, and the 17-point lead is steadily falling.
Liverpool, on the other hand, increased their tally to 28 points and are putting pressure on record champions Manchester United (29/one game down), who are fifth.
Kehrer sees West Ham collapse from outside
National defender Thilo Kehrer followed West Ham United’s 0-2 (0-2) defeat at FC Brentford on the substitutes’ bench. The Hammers could fall back to a relegation zone in the further course of the 18th game day.
