Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool now make up the top three spots in the table and are only separated by goal difference.

"That was something for concern certainly for the Chelsea fans at the start of the season".

Both London clubs have enjoyed impressive starts to the 2018-19 campaign, with Chelsea joint-top going into the second global break of the season. Watching them is really good.

The Premier League signed off before the upcoming October global break in style over the weekend, producing much drama, action and talking points from the 10 games involving all 20 teams across Saturday and Sunday.

The two teams played each other four teams last season, each one of them a thriller, and none better than the Reds' 4-3 Premier League win at Anfield.

City struggled to exert their authority in Sunday's blockbuster Premier League clash at Anfield, with neither side able to create a clear-cut chance.

A total of just three goals conceded in the first eight league games is also a record only matched in 1978/79.

"It was seven massive games and I'm really happy with what the boys made out of it, now we have to hope they come back [from the upcoming worldwide break] healthy and then we go to Huddersfield".

"My respect for Pep Guardiola couldn't be bigger, he is the world's best manager and that makes it so hard, but so exciting to play his teams". "It was not smart from me personally and hopefully it will never happen again".

EPL: Sarri singles out Chelsea player in 3-0 win over Southampton
In the second half, Ross Barkley rose to the occasion and made it 2-0 for his side after receiving a lay off from Olivier Giroud . However, he does like to score against the Saints, who top the Giroud versus stats with eight goals against.

As I said on Match of the Day on Saturday, what has been happening at United this season has been embarrassing, right through the club.

But my worry with Chelsea is where their other goals will come from if Hazard stops scoring as regularly, because their main strikers Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata are not exactly prolific.

Saints exposed them at the back but missed two sitters, firstly through Danny Ings to go 1-0 up and then when Ryan Bertrand could have equalised.

'We aim to improve every game, even if it is against Chelsea, for example, and we want to win every game.

That made it a totally different game to their meetings last season.

"It will be between one of Liverpool and City".

City boss Pep Guardiola reined in their attacking intent during Sunday's goalless draw at Anfield with a first-half performance in particular which was the most restrained of any since his arrival in England. But it was Aaron Ramsey's strike that was the pick of the bunch, with as many as five different Gunners players involved in the move.

"At the end we need to be happy - I need to be happy - that we didn't lose it because of the penalty".
