and it's success for sealiway in front of her majesty in the champion stakes at ascot a result that sees osheen murphy become championjockey. hello and welcome to sportsday. a sensational perfromance from liverpool to come but they don't finish the day top of the premier league — that honour belongs to chelsea, who held off a fierce brentford side in the second half, to win1—0. ben chilwell�*s superb strike was enough for chelsea to go a point above liverpool — but brentford everything, including the kitchen sink, in their attempts to find a much deserved equaliser. they hit the post, and superb eduoard mendy save, meant it was chelsea's day — three points for them, as they sit top tonight. and the result, much needed — as a rampant liverpool ruined claudio ranieri's return to the premier league earlier.
7:46 pm
the italian�*s first match in charge at watford, spoiled by a liverpool team really on form this afternoon, as patrick gearey reports. watford are club of many managers, claudio a manager of many clubs — perhaps their paths were bound to cross. 1—0 liverpool, beautiful and, as it turned out, repeatable. later in the half of the trip. the second half, liverpool advancing again, keeper ben foster managing to stop an own goal but not fermini. once again, he'd been lost in space. mo salah works his magic in clouds, an escape act that defies belief. whatever angle you pick you cannot figure out his trick.
7:47 pm
it's a brilliant moment from mo salah! almost supernatural, still noticed, liverpool's for it was his third so he keeps the ball and mo salah owns the memories. bbc news. what a goalfrom salac. ——what a goalfrom salah. despite the hat—trick from firmino, it was salah's sublime goal that once again caught the attention for liverpool and his manager is delighted with how the egyptian is playing. it is phenomenal, he is for sure the best player in the world and only wheels get asked this but there is no problem and why should we not mention it? he is in top shape in really good and it is really nice watching him and they were top—class performers even without the goal. it is a big job but if my players understand me quickly the big job is a little less big. you are confident that they should be ok in the end? always i'm confident.
7:48 pm
it's the third match, i was waiting something badly today. not so big, but we are ready. we are ready to work hard. hugejob ahead huge job ahead perhaps to him. manchester city are up to second — a point behind liverpool — as they beat burnley 2—0 at the etihad. city had won 5—0 on each of burnley�*s past four visits to city — and they perhaps feared another heavy defeat was coming when bernardo silva gave city an early lead. there would only be one more goal, though, from kevin de bruyne, as city extended their unbeaten league run to seven matches. i think we made a good 15—20 minutes after the goal and we created chances and after the last 15—20 minutes we lost a little bit of our tempo, but we did really well. we did something and play really, really well in the second half
7:49 pm
and scored more goals and good results. it is important for what is coming next ahead of us. not such a good afternoon for city's local rivals manchester united, as the pressure continues to mount on manager ole gunnar solskjaer. united lost 4—2 at leicester, despite leading through mason greenwood. youri tielemans equalised before caglar soyuncu put the home side ahead. marcus rashford looked to have snatched a point for united, only forjamie vardy to make it 3—2 just 5a seconds later. patson daka added a fourth in stoppage time to secure leicester's first league win in five attempts. this could have been brilliant for me, so... but we need to turn the screw, and we need to keep that ambition and prove the point that we can be a very good side but we have that mentality and that hunger and to beat a team of that quality was a great victory for us. one result in isolation, that can be, as they say, luck,

margins, but then we've got too many games now that we've lost points so we need to look at the whole setup of the team, the whole balance of the team, maybe. maybe something has to give. there was a thrilling midlands derby in birmingham, where aston villa let a two—goal lead slip at home to end up losing 3—2 to wolves. villa fans were left scratching their heads as to how their side lost control after goals from danny ings and john mcginn. wolves scored three times in an incredible final 10 minutes, with ruben neves strike in the fifth minute of stoppage time securing a remarkable comeback. southampton claimed their first win of the premier league season by beating leeds. the slough—born albanian international striker armando broja, who's on loan from chelsea, scored his first premier league goal in the 1—0 win at st mary's. so confirmation of the day's results, then, including a goalless draw between norwich and brighton — a vital point for norwich, who are still bottom. in the match between manchester city and burnley, at half time city

7:53 pm
the big chief motif was added to the exeter plan 22 years ago and now there's a problem. headdress by wasps who also want premiership rugby to make a ruling on the issue. on the pitch, exeter walloped worcester last week and were ahead after 22 minutes when henry slade strolled into a corner. he added another but wasps were back in the match when dan frost and thomasjung were driven through. wasps held a 2—point lead at half—time and then frustrated the visitors before both sides lost their bag. wasps advance further with the jimmy penalty before sam simmons squeezed over for exeter. the winning bonus was assured as they claimed their fourth try. as for the club's controversial branding, it's likely to dominate their agm next month.
