Ilkay Gundogan 9/10 as Manchester City steamroller Cardiff

1 hour 34 minutes ago
Billed as the biggest clash of playing styles in the Premier League since the Arsenal vs. Stoke fixtures of the Rory Delap era, City had to be patient. Despite a 3-0 half-time lead, the first goal did not go in until the 32nd minute. That they ended five goals clear was evidence that the midweek defeat to Lyon was not playing on anyone's mind. Positives Patient probing against an initially resilient home side resulted in a textbook City opener: the quick delivery out by Ederson bypassing four Cardiff...

1 hour 51 minutes ago

1 hour 54 minutes ago
Liverpool may be top of the Premier League and unbeaten, but Stevie Nicol says they must be far more clinical to keep top spot. Liverpool cantered past a limp Southampton at Anfield to stay perfect in the Premier League this season. Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk was subbed off only seven minutes into the second half after appearing to have pain in his ribs. LIVERPOOL, England -- Jurgen Klopp is hopeful that Virgil van Dijk did not suffer a serious rib injury during Liverpool's 3-0 win over Southampton and confirmed Xherdan Shaqiri was taken off at half-time for tactical reasons. Shaqiri was pivotal in Liverpool's first and third goals at Anfield on Saturday but was unable to build on his first-ever start for the club, having been withdrawn for James Milner at the break. Van Dijk, meanwhile, was forced to come off early in the second half, heading straight...

Alexis Sanchez 4/10 as Man United stumble to draw vs. Wolves

2 hours 18 minutes ago
Joao Moutinho's fantastic second-half goal was enough to give his Wolves side a deserved point at Old Trafford. Manchester United are enduring a worryingly stop-start season, with their dismissal of Young Boys in midweek followed by a very disappointing 1-1 home draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers. Of greatest concern was how little creativity United could offer; there was plenty of industry but precious little end product, and Fred's delightful opener ended up looking like an anomaly. Positives Marouane Fellaini and Chris Smalling were industrious and effective, Paul Pogba shone for long periods and...
