Liverpool can't stop scoring but is the Premier League title race already over?


We've not even reached the end of September but already there is a strong whiff that the race for the Premier League title is only going in one direction - the blue half of Manchester.

Pep Guardiola picked up win number 10 since taking charge of City in the summer, as Swansea were cast aside for the second time in a week. Good luck everyone else.

Here is what happened elsewhere:

Talking point of the day

Is the title race already over? Okay, it's only early days but Manchester City look seriously unstoppable under Guardiola. As an FYI: Sergio Aguero has scored more goals this season than Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi combined. And he's missed three games through suspension.

Before City continued on their merry way the main talking point was Wayne Rooney getting dropped for United's 4-1 win over champions Leicester.

Was Mourinho taking notice of the ad-hoc poll above conducted by United fans outside Old Trafford today? Probably not. Is it a reflection of where Rooney is at? Probably yes.

A picture tells a thousand words. No need for a match report from the Stadium of Light. This snap of Alan Pardew and David Moyes does the trick as Palace came from two goals down to win 3-2.
