I would blame weather for lack of goals, says Alvaro Morata

I would blame weather for lack of goals, says Alvaro Morata

In the opening moments, Aguero drove into the area only to be crowded out by three Saints defenders, before Sterling flashed a unsafe ball across the face of McCarthy's goal.

Social media was full of love for Aguero and what he has meant to the Premier League since his arrival in Manchester. Is it City being so good or Southampton being so bad?

David Silva and Leroy Sane also got on the scoresheet for the champions after an early Wesley Hoedt own-goal in a one-sided contest at the Etihad Stadium.

Sterling doubled his goal tally on 67 minutes, as the winger received the ball from Aguero before firing a low effort across Alex McCarthy.

After being held by Arsenal over the weekend, Jurgen Klopp's side fell two points off the pace as City have now won nine of their opening 11 league games.

Tottenham vs PSV Eindhoven, Champions League
In Holland we say s** strong *"I don't want to make a big issue, but it's not good enough to play good football". We had a few chances at the end to maybe steal it but it wasn't to be tonight. 'We never gave up.

However, the report suggests that Chelsea are now unwilling to part ways with Loftus-Cheek with the England worldwide playing a part off the bench in the Premier League and from the start in cup competitions. Willian then saw a goal disallowed for offside in the closing stages of the first half.

Ahead through Alvaro Morata, visitors Crystal Palace pegged the Blues back thanks to Andros Townsend's 53rd minute equaliser.

The Chelsea striker was dogged with back problems from December which caused him pain and a loss of form after a promising start to life at Stamford Bridge following his £58m move from Real Madrid. Eden Hazard's free-kick into the area found Morata who scored his sixth goal in his last six outings for the Blues. Marcos Alonso played a good diagonal pass to find Pedro who fired past Hennessey in the visitor's goal.

Morata, whose wife gave birth to twins in July, might have completed a hat-trick against Palace only to opt to chip Wayne Hennessey, at 6ft 6in, from close range after sprinting through on goal in stoppage time.

Nobody at this moment is as confident as Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta in order to compete for the title against rivals Manchester City.
