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.
Ander Herrera came on as a second half substitute to add bite to what had been a previously lackluster Manchester United midfield and help to inspire a 2-1 win away to Bournemouth which came thanks to an injury-time goal from Marcos Rashford. "That doesn't mean Liverpool can't win the league", he told Sky Sports.
In short, City ran through Southampton 6-1 to the point where it was nearly embarrassing for the visitors, with Mark Hughes having to sit and ponder over what could've been against his former club.
"We are two points behind and it's up to us to keep the rhythm". "How they perform is a good sign that something is right in the team".
Palace started the game in brighter fashion. Pedro found compatriot Alvaro Morata who took the touch before smashing a powerful effort past Wayne Hennessey. However, the pair haven't been convincing in front of goal.
