EPL: Man City feast on Saints

Jamie Carragher believes Man City are a better side than Liverpool, but that does not necessarily mean that the Reds can not win the Premier League this season. It has been a similar story for Huddersfield Town and Newcastle United, who have also won just the solitary game, and have picked up six points.

The win means that City are now top of the table, two points clear of Chelsea in second and Liverpool in third.

"It's up to us, last season we finished 20 or 30 points behind Man City", he added.

But Aguero was not to be denied for long, as he turned in Sterling's cross for his 150th Premier League goal, after the England forward and Bernardo Silva linked up classily.

As a result Firmino believes the Merseysiders are well placed to push City all the way as they seek a first league title since 1990.

Liverpool have made their best start to a top-flight campaign since the Premier League began in 1992-93.

Chelsea are to use Liverpool's toils against Red Star Belgrade as a reminder they can not let their standards slip as they seek to secure qualification for the Europa League knockout phase with victory over Bate Borisov.

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has declared himself no wet weather player!

The only consolation for Southampton was that a Danny Ings penalty gave them their first goal in six games but, without a win in seven, these are hard times for their manager Mark Hughes. We can not drop points, we need to work hard, keep improving and let's see on that day if we have the chance to do it.

Chelsea lock horns with BATE Borisov in Belarus tomorrow evening, and we reckon Maurizio Sarri's going to make wholesale changes once again.

But what three match takeaways can be drawn from a dark afternoon for the football club?

Chelsea recorded a 3-1 home win over Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge to stay within touching distance of reigning champions City.

Attack: Eden Hazard has travelled with the squad to Belarus and Sarri has confirmed he will give the Belgian worldwide 45 minutes tomorrow.
