Man City extend lead at top, Man United salvage draw

However, the 21-year-old City striker failed to score any goal since the second week of this season's Premier League.

He is the Premier League's joint-leading English scorer, his eight goals matching Harry Kane's tally after the weekend games, and is joined by two others on top of the assists table.

Romelu Lukaku gave United a lifeline when he slotted home from Rashford's pass in the 33rd minute as the Belgian striker grabbed his first goal in 13 games.

Raheem Sterling again proved the scourge of Bournemouth as he helped Manchester City to a 3-1 win at the Etihad Stadium.

Ilkay Gundogan has dismissed the possibility that Manchester City could go the whole season unbeaten despite their brilliant start to the campaign.

Only after Sterling put City in front in the 57th minute, scoring for the sixth straight game against Bournemouth, did the champions really start to exert any dominance.

They have been able to maintain a remarkable level of consistency, with Guardiola able to bring the best out of those at his disposal.

In the race for a top-four finish to qualify for the Champions League, which might be a minimum requirement for Mourinho to stay in his job, United is six points behind fourth-place Chelsea, whose game in hand is against Fulham on Sunday. I know when I did it I was not happy to have done it.

Jamie Vardy opened the scoring with a penalty after 12 minutes before James Maddison netted a brilliant volley to move Leicester up to eighth. Huddersfield took the lead after 55 seconds, with Mathias Jorgensen heading in from a sliced Bruno clearance.

Leicester climbed above visitors Watford into seventh after a 2-0 win at the King Power Stadium.

Watford's miserable afternoon was compounded in the closing stages when Etienne Capoue was given a straight red card after an apparent two-footed challenge on Kelechi Iheanacho.

Crystal Palace winger Andros Townsend (No 7) hit a screamer in a 2-0 win over struggling Burnley, while West Ham's Felipe Anderson (No 10) was back among the top performers after sealing a 3-0 win in stoppage time at Newcastle.

Steve Mounie was given his marching orders after 32 minutes and Shane Duffy levelled on the stroke of half-time before Florin Andone bagged the victor midway through the second half.
