Tottenham beats Leeds and Liverpool wins over Southampton

Tottenham beats Leeds and Liverpool wins over Southampton. Tottenham came from behind to defeat Leeds in a thrilling game 4-3 while Liverpool defeated Southampton 3-1 on Saturday to move into the top six of the Premier League. James Maddison scored in Leicester’s 2-0 victory over West Ham, but his World Cup hopes may have been dashed by injury. Tottenham had to come back from a deficit at halftime after goals from Leeds and the in-form Crysencio Summerville and Rodrigo put Leeds in lead before Harry Kane’s equalizer.

Last Saturday, Jesse Marsch’s team defeated Bournemouth in a nail-biting 4-3 victory, but this time, they were the victim of an exciting comeback. Ben Davies’ powerful goal tied the score at 2-2 before Rodrigo gave Leeds the lead once more. Rodrigo Bentancur scored twice in the closing 10 minutes to give Tottenham, who have a tendency of coming back in the second half this season, the three points and bring Antonio Conte’s team up to third. If Newcastle defeats Chelsea at St. James’ Park for a third straight league loss, they will overtake Spurs.

Darwin Nunez scored twice against Southampton as Liverpool finished strong before Boxing Day. Within six minutes at Anfield, Roberto Firmino’s header put the Reds ahead. However, in Nathan Jones’ first game in charge, the Saints answered right away through Che Adams. Nunez has struggled since leaving Benfica for a fee of 75 million euros ($77 million), but the Uruguayan has already scored eight goals in his first campaign with Liverpool.

Before halftime, he slid in to turn home Andy Robertson’s cross after producing a clever finish on Harvey Elliott’s ball. Leicester’s continuous ascent up the ladder, however, might cost England. Maddison scored the game’s first goal with his sixth goal of the year after his impressive play earned him a spot in Gareth Southgate’s team. However, the midfielder soon limped off with what appeared to be a hamstring injury.

Twelve minutes from the end, Harvey Barnes added a second goal for the Foxes, lifting West Ham one point out of the bottom three. After being destroyed 3-0 by Bournemouth, with goals from Marcus Tavernier, Kieffer Moore, and Jaidon Anthony, Everton is only one point above the bottom three. With a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace, Morgan Gibbs-strike White’s lifted Nottingham Forest off the bottom of the table.
