Alvaro Morata: 'I'm in a better place'

Aguero joins Henry & Rooney in 150 club with landmark Man City goal

Opposition sides are struggling to so much as get shots away, while up the other end City are having few problems creating chances of their own.

"It's up to us, last season we finished 20 or 30 points behind Man City", he added.

Guardiola's side have now won eight of their past nine matches across all competitions, although Ings' penalty was the first league goal they have conceded in six games. He is tied along with Eden HAZARD of Chelsea and Pierre-Emerick AUBAMEYANG of Arsenal.

Fabregas was excluded from the travelling party due to illness, while Morata - who has scored four goals in his past four Premier League appearances - has been granted a rest.

Ahead through Alvaro Morata, visitors Crystal Palace pegged the Blues back thanks to Andros Townsend's 53rd minute equaliser.

Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas was a late withdrawal because of illness, and has been replaced by N'Golo Kante.

Hurricane Oscar gains strength but still no threat to land
The Atlantic hurricane season typically peaks in September and October, but major storms do sometimes form in November. According to a forecast discussion, Oscar is moving over "sufficiently warm water" that would help make it stronger.

Chelsea still need to keep their momentum going, especially up front as they are scoring goals but still looking a bit dodgy at the back.

Attentions will now gradually turn towards the forthcoming January transfer window, as Premier League clubs begin considering brining in some potential reinforcements for the midway stage of the season. However, controversial pundit Gray does not believe that Morata is living up to the potential he showed at Madrid, proffering that Sarri should look for a new striker in January if the West Londoners want to challenge for Premier League glory this season.

Chelsea's fringe players will get an opportunity to shine once again on Thursday night, which will do wonders in terms of keeping heads high within the camp. Marcos Alonso played a good diagonal pass to find Pedro who fired past Hennessey in the visitor's goal.

Belgium global Hazard returned from two weeks out with a back problem when he came on in the 64th minute of Sunday's 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace.

This is where we realize just how good a result it was for Liverpool that their two main group rivals drew, failing to capitalize on Red Star Belgrade's shock victory.
