EPL: Big win takes Man City back to top spot

Share

Morata scored a brace for the Blues during the weekend as they sailed to a 3-1 victory against Crystal Palace, which seemingly marked a change in fortunes for the Spaniard, who was strongly criticised for his performances last season.

It took the introduction of Eden Hazard to turn matters back in Chelsea's favour, the home side scoring within 90 seconds of the Belgian taking to the field as their star man set up Morata for his second.

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.

Chelsea will be seeking a fourth win from four Europa League Group L games in Thursday's contest.

"I need to work a lot to be like them".

While Liverpool were on top of the log after Saturday's games, they have now dropped to the third spot as Manchester City reclaimed the number one position and Chelsea climbed to second spot. I'm better. In the last month of last season, I was down, down, down, down.

We are 11 games into the 2018/19 Premier League season, and the table is beginning to take shape. Herrera's entry into the match allowed Jose Mourinho's side more control, but the result was still in the balance until Rashford got on the end of Paul Pogba's cross.

Chelsea will be without Cesc Fabregas, who is unwell and remained in London, as well as Alvaro Morata who has been rested.

"We thought for him it's better to play, not for 90 minutes, but to play after two weeks without training. Relax, it's been a brilliant start, and I think everyone expects it to continue - but it will be tough against Manchester City".

However, former Blues winger Nevin thinks that his former club's squad has more strength in depth compared to their Merseyside rivals and that will allow Sarri's side to challenge in both the Premier League and Europa League this season. The 21-year-old rose to prominence at the 2017 Toulon tournament, winning best player, and following in the footsteps of the likes of Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry.
