Hello everybody and welcome to one of the most exciting Sundays of the Premier League season so far.

There’s mouth-watering clashes throughout the day with the big clash at Anfield later on this afternoon.

Let’s get right to it …

Manchester City 4-0 Crystal Palace

Scorers: Stones 27′, 68′, Gündogan 56′, Sterling 88′

Manchester City jumped up to second place after beating Crystal Palace 4-0 at the Etihad Stadium.

City broke the deadlock through John Stones, who headed home a delicious outside-of-the-boot cross from Kevin de Bruyne.

The hosts doubled their lead after half time when Ilkay Gündogan curled in a beautiful strike from 20 yards.

Stones grabbed an unlikely brace to make it 3-0, before Raheem Sterling whipped in a free-kick to secure victory late on.

Liverpool 0-0 Manchester United

Scorers: N/A

Liverpool started much the brighter of the two teams with Xherdan Shaqiri and Thiago impressing in midfield.

The closest either side came though to opening the scoring was on 35 minutes when Bruno Fernandes fired in a free kick that flew just wide of Alisson’s right-hand post.

The home side went into the second period in much the same vein as the first – controlling much of the ball but struggling to craft a real gilt-edged chance.

In fact, the best chance of the game fell to Paul Pogba in the final few minutes when his close range effort was saved brilliantly by Alisson.

Sheffield United 1-3 Tottenham

Scorers: McGoldrick 59′; Aurier 5′, Kane 40′, Ndombele 61′

As has been quite common over the last few weeks, Tottenham raced into an early lead thanks to Serge Aurier’s fifth minute header.

Spurs were in total ascendancy and doubled their advantage just before half-time when Harry Kane finished well from the edge of the area.

Into the second half and the Blades rallied well, getting one back on the hour mark as David McGoldrick out-jumped Joe Rodon and headed past Hugo Lloris.

But Spurs’ two-goal advantage was quickly restored as Tanguy Ndombele chipped Aaron Ramsdale with an astonishing effort.
