Manchester City and Liverpool took advantage of Chelsea’s 3-2 loss at West Ham on Saturday to leapfrog Thomas Tuchel’s team in the Premier League title chase.
Following Liverpool’s last-gasp 1-0 triumph at Wolves, defending champions City finished the day on top of the standings for the first time this season after a 3-1 romp of struggling Watford.
Chelsea entered their early encounter at the London Stadium as Premier League leaders, having suffered only one defeat this season.
The European champions took the lead twice against West Ham, with Thiago Silva’s header and Mason Mount’s volley, but were pegged back both times by Manuel Lanzini’s penalty and Jarrod Bowen’s strike.
West Ham, who had already broken Liverpool’s long unbeaten run this season, solidified their spot in the top four after the winning goal from Masuaku late into the game.
Liverpool needed extra time to beat tenacious Wolves, with substitute Divock Origi scoring in the 94th minute after Mohamed Salah’s run.
At Molineux, the visitors dominated possession and had 17 efforts on goal, but Wolves fought valiantly to keep them at bay until Origi’s late goal.
