We’ve not even reached the end of September but already there is a strong whiff that the race for the Premier League title is only going in one direction – the blue half of Manchester.
Pep Guardiola picked up win number 10 since taking charge of City in the summer, as Swansea were cast aside for the second time in a week. Good luck everyone else.
Here is what happened elsewhere:
Bournemouth 1 Everton 0
Liverpool 5 Hull City 1
Middlesbrough 1 Tottenham 2
Stoke 1 West Brom 1
Sunderland 2 Crystal Palace 3
Swansea 1 Manchester City 3
Was Mourinho taking notice of the ad-hoc poll above conducted by United fans outside Old Trafford today? Probably not. Is it a reflection of where Rooney is at? Probably yes.
43 - James Milner has scored in his 43rd different Premier League game; he's not lost any of the previous 42 he's scored in (W34 D8). Charm.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) September 24, 2016
