At Manchester, Sterling reached 50 goals for the club after scoring a brace that helped City to a dominant triumph, with Sergio Aguero, David Silva and Leroy Sane also among the goals.

Sterling added his second of the game midway through the second half before Sane completed the rout in stoppage time.

What might be more worrying is the company Saints are keeping in that respect with City's other five goal winning margins having come against Burnley, Huddersfield and Cardiff, the latter two being in the bottom three of the Premier League, while the likes of Fulham and Newcastle got off more lightly.

The visitors pulled one back with a penalty but it proved a minor setback for City, who again dominated Southampton in the second half.

After 11 matches the Premier League table is beginning to take shape, and though it remains a little early for panic stations to be deployed, there is a hint of familiarity about the sides already battling for top flight survival.

"I don't think we were confronted with lots of goal chances and we kept them at bay pretty well, but they were clinical".

City needed only five minutes to take the lead against Southampton, Wesley Hoedt putting through his own net.

Southampton had the minor consolation of becoming the first team in 630 minutes to score against City but the leaders' form is ominous for the rest of the division.

Palace, meanwhile, have won just twice in the league this season and remain 14th with eight points.

"He is a top player but still is so young to be considered the world's best", said Guardiola.

"It's a big strength for us that anyone can score the goals, and we have that hunger".

Unbeaten Chelsea made a slow start but Morata cheered the Stamford Bridge crowd by putting his team in front from close range in the 32nd minute after pouncing on a cross by Pedro. "I am convinced that the way we play, the players we have and the determination we show, things will start to turn around".
