Man City edge Bournemouth to move five points clear

"We have an honest group of players and I can't fault them at all".

"Good spirit, good fight, good comeback to 2-2".

But Guardiola pointed out the example of young Brazilian Douglas Luiz, who was unable to obtain a work permit to play in England for City and instead moved to Girona in La Liga, as an example of how the new system may limit players' development.

The last time Newcastle had won a home Premier League game when trailing at halftime was in 2006, and the writing appeared to be on the wall again for them when Hernandez grabbed his second of the afternoon after 62 minutes.

But United fought back to level before half-time through Romelu Lukaku and Ander Herrera.

"At 2-0 up we had a foothold", Saints winger Nathan Redmond said.

"We will tell them what is going to happen against Watford".

City hold a significant lead over second placed Liverpool, but they can close the gap back to two points if they beat Everton in the Merseyside derby at Anfield on Sunday.

There was certainly a late flourish, with David Silva coming off the substitutes to help inspire a classic third in tandem with man-of-the-match Leroy Sane, but this victory was more a triumph for perseverance than anything else after Callum Wilson had cancelled out Bernardo Silva's early goal. "People think it's easy for us but that is not the truth, so I like to win in this way", Guardiola said.

"Sometimes it happens. It is a lesson we have to learn, how to win when we are exhausted".

That's because after today's game against Bournemouth - a 3-1 win at the Etihad Stadium - no player has scored more goals (8) or made more assists (6) in the top flight this season than Sterling.

Jamie Vardy and James Maddison scored as the Foxes made it five games unbeaten to sit eighth.

Crystal Palace ended their eight-game winless league run with a 2-0 success against fellow strugglers Burnley.

Palace spent much of the match on top without finding another goal, before Andros Townsend's effort flew into the top corner after 77 minutes to seal the win for Roy Hodgson's side.

Huddersfield Town looked set to continue their recent upturn in form by scoring after 58 seconds at home to Brighton, Mathias Jorgensen heading in the fastest goal of the Premier League season. They also infuriated the home crowd by time wasting early in the first half, even when 1:0 down.

However, the hosts were reduced to 10 men after half an hour when Steve Mounie was sent off for a high challenge and Brighton took full advantage with goals by Shane Duffy and Florin Andone.
