Tottenham Hotspur showed resilience in a 1-0 victory at Crystal Palace as Leicester played at home for the first time since owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha's tragic death in a helicopter crash.

Pep Guardiola wants two players for every position and had wanted to bring in Jorginho in the summer but missed out when the Italy global followed manager Maurizio Sarri to Chelsea from Napoli instead.

"In the Premier League, I had some good games against [Didier] Drogba, sometimes bad". Not only Man City - 10 points from Liverpool, a lot of points from the other ones as well.

Kosovo-born Swiss global Xherdan Shaqiri, left out of the midweek trip to Serbia because of concerns of a hostile reception in Belgrade, scored the second after the break.

"Man United have this wonderful quality so they don't need too much to punish you". Led by David Silva and Bernardo Silva, City completed a mind-numbing 91-percent of their passes, tallying a staggering 704 passes to United's pedestrian 380.

Ivan Cavaleiro's 13th-minute strike put Wolves ahead after capitalizing on a mistake by Granit Xhaka.

Arsene Wenger's side achieved the extremely rare feat of scoring in every single match that season, yet they didn't score more than four in any of them.
