Mourinho is sent to the stands during a breathless finish at St Mary's. United have been a long way from their best today, but hold on for a fifth top-flight win out of six that keeps them level on points with City at the top of the table.

Brazilian winger Richarlison, one-on-one with Lukasz Fabianski, nets what is likely to be a late winner for Watford off the crossbar.

Delph also crashes one in off the woodwork against Palace. City have now scored 16 goals without reply in their last three Premier League matches.

Goal: Manchester City 5-0 Crystal Palace (Fabian Delph)

Goal: Swansea 1-2 Watford (Richarlison)

Still 1-0 to United as we head into the final few minutes a St Mary's. Southampton have been comfortably the better team in this second half and will again be left wondering how they haven't managed to score.

Another stroll in the park for free-scoring City. Aguero heads home Sane's cross and is now just one short of drawing level with Eric Brook as City's all-time leading goal-getter.

Goal: Manchester City 4-0 Crystal Palace (Sergio Aguero)

It's the same pair again!

The prolific Morata notches his first hat-trick in English football after another assist from Azpilicueta.

All three substitutes combine at Goodison as Niasse sends a defiant message to Koeman.

Alvaro Morata

Goal: Everton 2-1 Bournemouth (Oumar Niasse)

Goal: Stoke 0-4 Chelsea (Alvaro Morata)

A fine individual run and finish from Morata increases Chelsea's lead further. Forgotten man Niasse has also equalised for Everton, 20 minutes after being introduced in place of Rooney.

Big goal for Koeman.

Goal: Everton 1-1 Bournemouth (Oumar Niasse)

Goal: Stoke 0-3 Chelsea (Alvaro Morata)

Ramping up the search for that elusive equaliser, Pellegrino sends on striker Manolo Gabbiadini in place of Davis.

Mourinho responds by withdrawing Mkhitaryan in favour of centre-back Smalling.

There has been action at both ends at St Mary's over the last few minutes.

Forster denied Lukaku with his feet before Fellaini cleared Romeu's goal-bound header off the line following a Tadic corner.

Redmond's long-range strike was comfortably held by De Gea and Valencia was booked for a foul on Davis.

Concern for Thibaut Courtois at Stoke after the Chelsea goalkeeper collides with Gary Cahill and Peter Crouch and hits the ground hard. It looks like he will continue after a bit of treatment.

One to keep an eye on for sure.

Long wants a penalty after tussling with Phil Jones, but the referee waves away his appeals.

Southampton remain in the ascendancy and Mourinho has sent on Herrera in place of Mata. Mkhitaryan's deflected strike is collected by Forster.

Aguero tees up Sterling for his second goal in quick succession. Another miserable afternoon for Palace now absolutely guaranteed.

Goal: Manchester City 3-0 Crystal Palace (Raheem Sterling)

Redmond tests De Gea at his near post and Cedric wins another Southampton corner before Long rises highest to head Redmond's cross well wide.

The Saints are pressing for an equaliser.

An easy tap-in for Chelsea loanee Abraham after a couple of attempts from strike partner Wilfried Bony. Paul Clement's Swansea back on level terms at the Liberty Stadium.

Goal: Swansea 1-1 Watford (Tammy Abraham)

Sane turns provider at the Etihad as City double their lead through Sterling. Rock-bottom Palace's search for a first league goal and point of the season continues.

Goal: Manchester City 2-0 Crystal Palace (Raheem Sterling)

Tadic hesitates but still manages to win a corner for Southampton, who have enjoyed a positive start to this second half. Oriol Romeu then prods agonisingly wide from close range.


Things go from bad to worse for Ronald Koeman as King fires Bournemouth in front on Merseyside.

Everton 0-1 Bournemouth (Josh King)

Back underway on the south coast. No changes from either manager at the interval.


Not the most enjoyable of first halves for Wayne Rooney at Goodison Park...

City finally break the deadlock shortly before half-time. Sane, who scored twice against West Brom in the Carabao Cup, nets at the near post after fabulous link-up play with David Silva from a free-kick.

Goal: Manchester City 1-0 Crystal Palace (Leroy Sane)

Vital clearance from Hoedt to stop Lukaku's low cross from reaching Rashford. That was a blistering United counter-attack spearheaded by Mkhitaryan.

Young brings down Tadic and joins Long in the referee's notebook. Steven Davis' free-kick is flicked on by Redmond before eventually being hooked clear by Matic.


Fellaini writhes around in agony after being caught on the achilles by Shane Long, who collects the game's first yellow card.

That looked nasty.

No goals yet in the top vs bottom clash at the Etihad Stadium, although Sergio Aguero has just gone close.

Dominant Manchester City have also lost Benjamin Mendy to an apparent knee injury. Danilo is on in his place.

Easy pickings for Chelsea at the bet365 Stadium. Pedro, now fit again after an ankle knock, is the beneficiary of a woeful chested pass from Darren Fletcher.

Stoke had largely been on the front foot since going 1-0 down, too.


Goal: Stoke 0-2 Chelsea (Pedro)

Bertrand shoots wide for Southampton before Juan Mata is fouled by Maya Yoshida.

Rashford steps up to bend a free-kick narrowly past the post. That was very close.


Let's see what the club and indeed the FA have to say about this.

Mario Lemina produces a very tame shot from distance that was never likely to trouble De Gea.

Young stands up Tadic on the left-hand side before delivering a fine cross to Lukaku, who sees his initial header parried by Forster. However, he reacts quickly to turn home the rebound with his left foot.

That's now eight goals in as many games for the prolific Belgian. Money well spent.

Romelu Lukaku

Goal: Southampton 0-1 Manchester United (Romelu Lukaku)

Gray, an £18.5m club-record signing from Burnley, nets his first Watford goal from close range after a cross from Benfica loanee Andre Carrillo.

A pleasing opening for Marco Silva's side, who are seeking to bounce back from that heavy 6-0 defeat to Manchester City last time out.

Goal: Swansea 0-1 Watford (Andre Gray)

United win a corner of their own after a poor clearance from Forster, but Fellaini is whistled for a foul on Wesley Hoedt. You could certainly argue that the latter was the chief aggressor there.

Ryan Bertrand pours forward for Southampton and Young inadvertently heads his cross behind for a corner.

Marouane Fellaini and Valencia struggle to clear their lines and Nathan Redmond fizzes a powerful shot wide.

Tadic embarks on a purposeful run forward but eventually appears to trip himself up under pressure from compatriot Matic.

The Serbian continues to limp around gingerly as a United counter-attack involving Rashford ends with Mkhitaryan shooting straight at Fraser Forster.


Just 83 seconds on the clock as Chelsea take the lead in the Potteries. Morata slots home past Jack Butland after running onto a lofted ball forward from compatriot Cesar Azpilicueta.

What a start.

Alvaro Morata

Goal: Stoke 0-1 Chelsea (Alvaro Morata)

Young nips in ahead of Dusan Tadic and receives a painful kick for his troubles.

Referee Craig Pawson gets the action underway on a sunny autumnal afternoon at St Mary's.

Daley Blind beats Matteo Darmian to a spot on the United bench as Ashley Young starts at left-back with Luke Shaw not involved.

De Gea, Valencia, Bailly, Matic, Mkhitaryan and Lukaku are restored to the starting XI as expected, while Rashford is again preferred to Martial.

Sergio Romero, Chris Smalling, Ander Herrera, Michael Carrick and Jesse Lingard all return to the bench following the win over Burton.

Both Southampton and United are unchanged from their previous Premier League outings, with Pellegrino opting to keep Van Dijk on the bench.

Jeremy Pied, Hojbjerg and Austin are also named as substitutes as Jack Stephens, the injured Targett and Sofiane Boufal drop out of the matchday squad.


Official team news now less than 10 minutes away.

It sounds like today's M3 closure following a bomb scare is causing a lot of problems for a number of United supporters attempting to reach St Mary's...

Long-term absentees Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo remain sidelined for United, while Jose Mourinho still claims to be in the dark as to when exactly Paul Pogba will be in a position to return from a hamstring injury.

David De Gea, Antonio Valencia, Eric Bailly, Nemanja Matic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Romelu Lukaku should all be recalled after being rested for the 4-1 Carabao Cup victory over Championship minnows Burton Albion in midweek.

Marcus Rashford went straight down the tunnel after appearing to sustain a blow while setting up Anthony Martial's goal in that aforementioned tie, although he is believed to be fully fit.

In terms of team news for our feature game, Virgil van Dijk could make his first senior start in eight months for Southampton following an ankle injury and an ugly, protracted summer saga in which he failed to secure a move away from the south coast despite going public with an official transfer request.

"We'll decide tomorrow [Friday]," manager Mauricio Pellegrino, who reintroduced the Dutchman for the final few minutes of a 1-0 win at Crystal Palace, said during his pre-match press conference when asked if he would start him this weekend.

"But every single week, Virgil is important because he is getting better. After a long period of time without playing a game, he is training well again. It's good news for us because we need Virgil, like every single player in our squad. He needs to train, he needs to play because the best training session for me is to play games."

Matt Targett is sidelined with an ankle issue, although Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is available again following the birth of his daughter. Striker Charlie Austin has been struggling with a knock.

Good afternoon and a very warm welcome to IBTimes UK's latest live coverage of the 2017-18 Premier League season.

There's also a lopsided top vs bottom contest between free-scoring Manchester City and Roy Hodgson's Crystal Palace, while out-of-form Everton seek to get back on track against Bournemouth.

Swansea also host Watford and arguably the two surprise packages of the campaign so far - Burnley and Huddersfield - lock horns at Turf Moor.

Stay tuned for all the latest injury news, confirmed lineups and live updates from around the grounds.
