Captain Vincent Kompany returned to training yesterday after missing City's previous two games with an injury. However, a lack of complaints from Watford's players perhaps reflected an acceptance of their fate. Previously unbeaten Watford could have also topped the Premier League with a win against Pep Guardiola's side, but they were undone by City's prolific attack who have now scored 15 goals in three matches.
The Brazil global netted his first Barca goal with six minutes remaining as Ernesto Valverde's men recovered from a terrible first half to claim a fourth straight top-flight victory in 2017-18. Samuel Umtiti , meanwhile, powered a header at goal, but it was saved by Vicente Guaita . It was the home side that took the lead in the 39th minute, however, when Shibasaki found the top corner with a stunning left-footed volley from the edge of the Barcelona box.
Yannick Noah's France take on star-starved Serbia and 28-time champions Australia face Belgium in the Davis Cup semi-finals this weekend. Peers has claimed 13 ATP doubles titles since 2013, first enjoying success with Britain's Jamie Murray before linking up with Kontinen at the start of 2016 and winning this year's Australian Open in January.
Through two weeks of the season, the Bengals still don't have a touchdown. The news of Zampese's firing will likely come as welcome to frustrated Bengals fans, who began calling for the 50-year-old's ouster after the team lost 13-9 (points courtesy of field goals) to the Houston Texans on Thursday night.
This fight could have taken place two years ago but de la Hoya, his promoter, wanted to wait and believes that the timing is in his favour. It's near impossible to shutdown any portion of Facebook unless Facebook does it themselves and there are last minute links that will pop up on YouTube live.
Saints unsurprisingly looked the more confident but Palace twice almost equalised before the half-hour mark, Christian Benteke denied by a point-blank block by Forster and Ruben Loftus-Cheek firing just wide of the left-hand post. Palace , as they did in last week's loss to Burnley, enjoyed plenty of possession and created good chances to equalise but were thwarted by two good saves from goalkeeper Fraser Forster .
