Manchester City overthrow Crystal Palace, Chelsea dominate Leicester

A week after being held in check at Newcastle (3-3), Manchester City got scared at home against Crystal Palace (4-2).

Losing 0-2 after 21 minutes, a first for the Etihad for twelve years, the Citizens reversed the trend after the break. Erling Haaland scored three goals as a real number 9, on a perfect serve from Foden (62nd), a missed strike from Stones (70th) and launched into a duel by Gündogan (81st). It was Bernardo Silva, whose departure is mentioned this summer, who had put the premises in the direction of travel by reducing the score of a shot deflected by Schlupp in the 53rd. This success allows Manchester City to temporarily take the lead in the Premier League with the attractive team of Brighton, who beat Leeds thanks to a new goal from Gross (1-0).

Chelsea worn by Sterling

Bought this summer from Manchester City for €56m, Raheem Sterling unlocked his counter for Chelsea against Leicester (2-1). Decisive passer against Tottenham (2-2), the Englishman scored twice, on services from Cucurella (47th) and James (63rd). The latter found the Foxes post just like … Sterling. Reduced to ten from the 28th after the avoidable expulsion of Gallagher, the Blues of Tuchel (suspended) gradually lowered their foot. The stirring Barnes reduced the score for the visitors, found by Vardy (67th). At the end of the match, Ayoze Pérez saw Mendy deny him the equalizer, with a superb parade. This difficult victory is precious for the Blues, who have seven points in four days.
