Raheem Sterling, Wayne Rooney and Jermain Defoe were amongst the goals on Saturday
Raheem Sterling became Liverpool's second-youngest Premier League goalscorer in their history as he bagged their winner against Reading.
The England Under-21s winger, who was in Roy Hodgson’s senior squad for September’s World Cup Qualifier against Ukraine, hit the only goal of the game at Anfield.
And at 17 years, 316 days old, Sterling comes in behind only Michael Owen in the Reds' youngest scorers' chart.
After watching his side’s first Premier League win at Anfield this season, Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers said: “It was a brilliant goal.
“It wasn't an easy chance because he is going away from goal, has a quick defender tracking him and to adjust his feet and have the technique to shoot across the keeper is wonderful.
“He's a terrific talent and he's got a good head on young shoulders.”
A short trip down the M62 and another Englishman was busy inspiring his side to a crucial home victory.
Wayne Rooney followed up his three goals in two games for England this week with a double for Manchester United as Premier League action resumed
The brace also brought up his 200th club goal – on the week in which he celebrated the 10th anniversary of his Everton debut.
It was a big turnaround for Rooney, who actually started the day by nodding in an own goal to give Stoke City the lead at Old Trafford.
But the 26-year-old netted twice at the right end to help United to a 4-2 victory over Tony Pulis’ side.
Elsewhere, Three Lions hitman Jermain Defoe continued his superb run of goalscoring form, but his strike could not prevent Tottenham losing 4-2 at home to Chelsea.
The goal of that game was scored by England defender Gary Cahill, who arrowed a stunning right-foot volley past Brad Friedel to give the Blues the lead at White Hart Lane.
As well as Defoe and Cahill, the game featured Ashley Cole, Kyle Walker, Aaron Lennon, Frank Lampard and Daniel Sturridge – who hit Chelsea’s fourth late on.
