Manchester United's turbulent season hit a new low with a 3-0 home defeat to Bournemouth, allowing Liverpool to claim the top spot in the Premier League.
Jurgen Klopp conceded that Liverpool was fortunate to secure a 2-1 win at 10-man Crystal Palace, benefiting from a late red card that changed the game.
Bournemouth's impressive form continued as they secured their first-ever victory at Old Trafford, exacerbating United's struggles. Erik ten Hag's side, previously in sixth place with six wins in eight Premier League games, suffered a dismal performance, raising questions about the manager's position ahead of a probable Champions League group stage exit.
Dominic Solanke opened the scoring for Bournemouth after just five minutes, and Philip Billing and Marcos Senesi added goals to seal a historic win. Meanwhile, Klopp acknowledged Liverpool's below-par performance but celebrated the team's ability to secure a comeback victory, taking them a point clear of Arsenal at the league's summit.
Crystal Palace, despite being denied a first-half penalty by VAR, took the lead through a Jean-Philippe Mateta penalty. However, two controversial yellow cards for Jordan Ayew shifted the momentum in Liverpool's favor. Mohamed Salah's 200th goal and a late winner from Harvey Elliott secured the victory.
In other matches, Sheffield United, under Chris Wilder's second stint, secured a 1-0 win over Brentford, while Burnley held on for a 1-1 draw against Brighton. Nottingham Forest ended their four-game losing streak with a 1-1 draw at Wolves, easing the pressure on manager Steve Cooper.
