Sterling’s Early Goal, Silva Stunners Earn Man City Win Versus Watford, Origi Salvages Late Winner For Liverpool 

2 mins read




A Raheem Sterling early goal and two strikes from Bernardo Silva helped Manchester City ease past Watford 3-1 and moved them to the top of the Premier League table following Chelsea’s 3-2 defeat to West Ham United earlier on Saturday.


Sterling grabbed the opener in only the fourth minute with a close-range header. And Silva kept his incredible goalscoring record going with the second just after the half-hour mark.


The Portuguese scored again after the break to give his side a comfortable victory before Cucho Hernandez netted a consolation for Watford at the Vicarge Road.


The loss was the 6th of the season in the Premier League for manager Claudio Ranieri.

Divork Origi came off the substitute bench to score a late winner for Liverpool against Wolverhampton Wanderers away on Saturday evening.


The Belgian striker of African descent fired a left footed strike that eventually claimed victory for Jurgen Klopp’s men.
