"Try to start the game well and bring home the three points". "Leroy, I don't know what he ate - maybe it will be on the menu for the next games for everybody - and changed the direction [of the game]".

Pep Guardiola explained what he specifically wants from Gabriel Jesus while saying "For example, Raheem Sterling likes to drop to play with David Silva".

I think we have just two less points than this time previous year, and what we have done is quite similar, but the contenders are much better.

The England winger has also eight in six top-flight appearances against Bournemouth and Guardiola pointed to a mazy dribble and shot against the post shortly before Sterling's goal as the moment City roused from a mid-game slumber that saw Callum Wilson cancel out Silva's opener.

"Last season was an exception... especially the end of December and January", said Guardiola.

Bernardo Silva has warned Manchester City's rivals that the Premier League champions are even better than they were last season and are eyeing more records.

Six minutes later, it was 2-2 when Rashford got to the byline and cut the ball into the six-yard box, where Herrera nipped in front of his marker to score with a cute back-heel that McCarthy got a hand to but could not keep out.

The Reds fell behind to an early Stuart Armstrong strike and when Cedric doubled Southampton's lead from an excellent free-kick the signs looked ominous.

Romelu Lukaku gave United a lifeline when he slotted home from Rashford's pass in the 33rd minute as the Belgian striker grabbed his first goal in 13 games.

In the other matches, Crystal Palace beat Burnley 2-0, Huddersfield lost 2-1 to Brighton, Leicester beat Watford 2-0, and Newcastle lost 3-0 at home to West Ham.

He is the Premier League's joint-leading English scorer, his eight goals matching Harry Kane's tally after the weekend games, and is joined by two others on top of the assists table.

Watford's misery was complete when Etienne Capoue was sent off in the 90th minute for a lunge on Kelechi Iheanacho.

Brighton drew level in first half stoppage-time through Shane Duffy's towering header.

They are just one point behind eighth-placed Leicester City, which defeated Watford 2-0 thanks to first-half goals from striker Jamie Vardy and midfielder James Maddison.
