West Bromwich Albion 0-5 Manchester City
Manchester City moved top of the Premier League table after hammering West Bromwich Albion 5-0 at the Hawthorns.
Man City made two changes from the controversial win over Aston Villa, as Riyad Mahrez took the place of the injured Kevin De Bruyne while Oleksandr Zinchenko started ahead of Kyle Walker.
City had a dream start as IIkay Gundogan opened the scoring in the sixth minute with a smashing strike from the edge of the box after he was teed up by Joao Cancelo.
The Citizens doubled their lead in the 20th minute from controversial circumstances after they continued to play despite the flag going up for offside and the whistle blowing, as Cancelo curled a strike into the top corner, a goal that was initially disallowed but the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) reversed the decision for no offside and the goal was given.
Gundogan added a third goal for Pep Guardiola's charges and grabbed his brace on the half-hour mark with a low strike before Mahrez made it 4-0 for the visitors in first-half stoppage time with a sublime strike into the top corner.
Raheem Sterling rounded off the scoring just before the hour-mark with a tap-in after a first-time cut-back by Mahrez and that was enough, as City went up to the top of the log by one point.
Southampton 1-3 Arsenal
Arsenal climbed to eighth in the Premier League table after coming from behind to thrash Southampton 3-1 at St. Mary's Stadium.
The Gunners were without their talisman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang due to personal reasons, as manager Mikel Arteta made four changes, with Thomas Partey, Bukayo Saka, Nicolas Pepe and Alexandre Lacazette all being recalled.
Stuart Armstrong got the opener for Ralph Hasenhuttl's charges in the third minute with a stunning strike on a half-volley from the edge of the box before Pepe quickly levelled matters for for Arsenal in the eighth minute.
Saka gave Arteta's men the lead with six minutes left of the first stanza after making no mistake from a one-on-one situation, where he rounded McCarthy after receiving a through ball from Lacazette.
Lacazette made the three points safe for the Gunners in the last 18 minutes with a finish into the bottom corner at the back post after a superb delivery by Saka and Arteta's men went up to eight on the table while the Saints dropped down to 11th.
