Jonjo Shelvey celebrates scoring their second goal

They're top of the league for a reason and this could be Silva's last stand. They played really well and executed their game plan.

Aaron Cresswell's third goal of the season made this the highest-scoring top-flight campaign to date and won Wabel Hill's first Chelsea win since September 2002, ending in a 13-win streak at Stamford Bridge.

Victor Lindelof headed United ahead in the 64th minute, but the home side's lead lasted just two minutes before Tyrone Mings volleyed home the final goal of the match. This game became the fourth to lose after falling behind.

Crystal Palace took a 2-0 win away to Burnley with goals from Wilfred Zaha and Jeff Schlupp, while Southampton sealed a late fightback with goals from Danny Ings to beat Watford 2-1 in a duel between the sides who started the weekend bottom and second bottom of the table - and in Watford's case, remain bottom leading to the sacking of coach Quique Sanchez Flores on Sunday after just 10 games in change.

Virgil van Dijk scored both the Reds' goals from Trent Alexander-Arnold deliveries to take Liverpool's tally of set-piece goals in the EPL since the start of last season to 40 - the best record in the league.

Walker went on to express his belief that City will need to embark on an extended winning run in order to reign in Liverpool, with the collective talent within the Etihad Stadium dressing room more than capable of turning things around.

The loss of Dele Alli's form was among the problems Mauricio Pochettino failed to overcome before being sacked by Tottenham, but the England player bounces back under Mourinho.

Everton are looking for a first victory at Anfield since 1999.

Of the players with at least 15 Premier League goals, only David Ginola (66.7%) and Laurent Robert (65.2%) scored higher outside the box than Shelvey, this range.

City have found the net in each of their past 22 Premier League games against Newcastle - their joint-longest such run in the competition - yet De Bruyne's sensational strike, his sixth goal involvement in six league appearances against the Magpies, was not enough to clinch victory.
