Liverpool's Juergen Klopp got the better of his best friend, Huddersfield boss David Wagner, in a 3-0 win at Anfield where second-half strikes from Daniel Sturridge, Roberto Firmino and Georginio Wijnaldum pushed the Reds to sixth on 16 points. Watford's giddy ascent, though, was checked with a 1-0 home defeat by struggling Stoke City - Darren Fletcher hit the target in the 16th minute - that dropped them to seventh on 15. At the other end of the table, Crystal Palace escaped with an astonishing 2-2 draw with West Ham United, coming back from two down and earning a draw in the seventh minute of stoppage time through Wilfried Zaha.
Anthony Martial has now scored as many Premier League goals as he did last season.16/17: 1559 minutes, 4 goals 17/18: 262 minutes, 4 goals pic.twitter.com/synOHO2t50 — Squawka Football (@Squawka) October 28, 2017
City's 28 points equalled the tally accrued by Chelsea in 2005 and City themselves in 2011 - and both those sides went on to win the title - but neither of those teams could match the 29-plus goal difference of Guardiola's charges. The manager reserved special praise for Sane, describing him as a "special talent" after City extended their unbeaten record in all competitions to a club record 21. Mourinho hailed United's win in difficult windy and rainy condition in the lunchtime fixture between the second and third-placed teams as "deserved" after they had created the lion's share of chances.

Martial struck 10 minutes after coming on, latching on to Lukaku's flicked header from David de Gea's goalkick. It was a scruffy left-foot finish from the Frenchman. Wenger was in bullish mood after Arsenal's win, saying the Gunners had proved their critics wrong by overturning a lead for a third time in a week.
