Liverpool and Man City lead early in Premier League title race

Liverpool’s perfect start to the season continued with a 3-0 win at Burnley, while Manchester City beat Brighton 4-0

For Liverpool it was a club-record 13th successive Premier League victory.

After four games, last season’s top two have broken clear of the pack although this time it is Jurgen Klopp’s side two points ahead as they go into the international break.

At Turf Moor, Liverpool took the lead on 33 minutes when Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cross looped off Chris Wood’s head into the far corner of the net, with Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino also scoring in another impressive performance.

The club’s previous record run was set between April and October 1990, when the team was managed by Kenny Dalglish.

City’s win was even more emphatic and never in doubt from the moment Kevin de Bruyne put them ahead in the second minute. With Sergio Aguero scoring twice to keep up his record of scoring in each of City’s four league games and substitute Bernardo Silva netting with his second touch, it was business as usual for City, who lost French defender Aymeric Laporte with what looked like a serious knee injury.

“It doesn’t look good,” said Pep Guardiola.
