It may just be September, and there are about eight months to go in the season, but we may already have the Premier League goal of the season.

Marcus Rashford came off the bench to briefly give United hope by pulling a goal back, but just three minutes later Marko Arnautovic exposed more poor United defending to seal West Ham's first home league win of the season.

The striker came off the bench to curl home from almost 30 yards out in the 89th minute, securing a desperate 1-1 draw for his side at Stamford Bridge.

"He's in the best shape since I've known him", Klopp said.

"I am disappointed because they scored in the last two minutes but in the end I am really very happy, first of all with the performance and I think also that the draw may be the right result".

"The whole dressing room was pretty much dancing".

"He's such a threat still and it's really good".

Chelsea are also still to taste defeat under Sarri, and the former Napoli boss says the Blues can be buoyed by their display.

"Virgil will try everything to be ready and I know how it sounds but, as long as you are not seriously injured, like [something] broken or ruptured, or have a proper strain, ..."

Hazard and Sturridge were in fine form, and the Chelsea star approached his former teammate in the tunnel after the game.

Hazard scored for the Blues in the first half, running onto a great through ball from Mateo Kovacic before sliding his finish past the outstretched arm of Alisson Becker in the Liverpool goal.

While the away side controlled the latter stages, Georginio Wijnaldum almost gifted Chelsea the win with a horror back pass to Alisson, but the goalkeeper just managed to beat the oncoming Alvaro Morata to the ball.

The Blues now sit in third place in the league after their unbeaten start, just behind champions Manchester City and Liverpool.

Chelsea are two points back in third. "We can challenge against Liverpool and can see we are not far off". He expected to start every game after what he did with [Luis] Suarez but injuries have robbed him of some of his best years and now he's realise he's in a squad on the edge of winning something.
