Man City go top after 6-1 rout of Southampton

Defending Champions Manchester City continued their stellar form as they hammered Southampton 6-1 to top the Premier League standings, capitalizing on Liverpool's draw against an in-form Arsenal.

City took just six minutes to open the scoring as Wesley Hoedt smashed an attempted clearance of Leroy Sane's cross into his own net, before Sergio Aguero doubled their lead by tapping in Raheem Sterling's cross.

BATE have won their last three domestic league games and on Sunday clinched another Belarusian league title.

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.

However, it also marked Aguero's 150th goal in the Premier League.

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. Is it City being so good or Southampton being so bad?

The Roundup-Jazz defense falters in loss to Raptors

Klopp added: "We had the first big chance with Daniel (Sturridge), a very big one".

The Newcastle icon scored a stunning 260 goals in 441 Premier League appearances, a record that will surely live on for some time. Eden Hazard's free-kick into the area found Morata who scored his sixth goal in his last six outings for the Blues.

The attacker finally broke a three-year goal drought for the Three Lions in a 3-2 win against Spain, and Carragher hopes Sterling can translate some of his club form over to worldwide play.

Kovacic, who is on loan at Chelsea from Real Madrid, urged his team to avoid a repeat of Liverpool's toil: 'I watched the game and Liverpool struggled a lot.

Chelsea moved into second place on goal difference as the much-criticized Alvaro Morata took advantage of the injury to Olivier Giroud with two goals in their 3-1 win over Crystal Palace.

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