Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri: We've had a mental problem

Chelsea expect to have Eden Hazard back at full strength after he returned to the starting XI against Everton, while Sarri expects Mateo Kovacic to be available despite the ankle problem that sidelined him for Croatia's defeat to England in the UEFA Nations League on Sunday. We're human. The players and the staff are all disappointed and that's not a good emotion that's going to help you to achieve all that you want.

Mark Hughes has won just three of his 21 Premier League games in charge of Southampton (14.3%), the worst win rate of any Saints manager who has been in the dugout for at least 20 games in the competition.

Liverpool are unbeaten in their opening 13 matches of a Premier League season for the first time since 2007-08.

"It's awesome. Our performance was very good and we deserved to win".

Liverpool, perhaps, were expected to make a leap, after a strong Champions League last season and a summer of impressively targeted spending.

Manchester United's frustrations rumbled on at Old Trafford with a 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace. "Of course Harry Kane is the best English striker in the moment, so a very important player, but if I have to say another name, I like very much [Christian] Eriksen", he admitted.

Palace had the ball in the net after Victor Lindelof put the ball in his own net, but Cheikhou Kouyate was judged to have been offside.

"How we closed down the game was just brilliant especially the third goal". The first game after the worldwide break is the highly anticipated derby against Spurs and only three points will keep Chelsea in and around the title race.

Stuart Armstrong also scored a double for Saints and opened the scoring before Mitrovic and Andre Schurrle turned the game around before half-time.

Fulham climb off the foot of the table and are only in the drop zone on goal difference, while Southampton are just out of it due to their own goal difference.

It was 2-1 to the hosts when Nurnberg went down a man through Robery Bauer's second yellow card.

With 10 minutes to go, Kelechi Iheanacho was brought down by Beram Kayal in the box, and Jamie Vardy converted from the spot to grab a point for Leicester.

The fact that a 2-1 win from leaders Borussia Dortmund gets pushed down to the "Elsewhere" portion of our wrap-up shows you the nutty nature of the day.
