Manchester United Top the Early Season EPL Table With Third Consecutive Victory

Manchester United Top the Early Season EPL Table With Third Consecutive Victory

Sane was City's star player, showing energy, trickery and an end product to delight Guardiola, who left out the winger in the first few games of the season after he failed to return from preseason in good shape.

We have less points but I think it was a good season last season for many things.

But Oumar Niasse hammered the equaliser from a ball by fellow substitute Tom Davies on 77 minutes before hooking home the victor just 8 minutes to stoppage time. Some of them are going to rest and the next game play.

The Germany winger showed superb technique to finish off a one-two with David Silva and score the opening goal in the 44th minute, ending ultra-defensive Palace's resolute start to the game and allowing City to run amok after halftime.

Mamadou Sakho nearly gifted City the lead as early as the seventh minute, and was fortunate to see his glanced header towards his own goal come out off the post.

He added: 'We're going to qualify. And we have to create in the game, to provoke the game. We fight like a normal team.

No City player completed more sprints than Sane's 66 against Palace at the Etihad but 48 from Sterling, despite him coming off in the 59th minute, is also mightily impressive.

United were far less convincing in their success at Southampton but Romelu Lukaku's first-half goal was enough to ensure they stay level on points with leaders City. I thought I was beginning to see a bit of light towards half-time but those lights went out in the second half. "Two quick goals then and when they get a few up, with their quality, passing and movement it becomes very hard".

"We know there is a lot of work to do with this group and they know that too". Truthfully, they already look incredibly panicked after only five games of the current campaign, which has led many to claim they already look like a Championship side with the way they are playing. "We didn't defend anywhere near as well as we should".

City won 2-1 at West Brom in the third round on Wednesday, suffering an injury scare when Ilkay Gundogan, back in the starting line-up for the first time since December after a long-term right knee injury, hobbled off following a heavy challenge from Claudio Yacob.
