West Bromwich Albion in one-goal loss to Manchester City

West Bromwich Albion in one-goal loss to Manchester City”

Former City midfielder Gareth Barry chipped the ball over the top which left John Stones outnumbered with Salomon Rondon and Rodriguez for company and the latter lobbed over goalkeeper Ederson for his second Premier League goal of the season.

City started brightly and led on 10 minutes when Fernandinho found Leroy Sane, who fired past Ben Foster.

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.

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.

The frenetic start continued before a quarter of an hour was played, though.

The visitors could have made it 3-1 on 26 minutes but Silva headed over from De Bruyne's deep cross when he perhaps should have done better.

Sterling came off the bench to give City breathing space as he converted Kyle Walker's cross in the 64th.

The visitors entered cruise control but Nicolas Otamendi could have made life a little hard in the closing stages, the centre-back just pulling out of a lunging challenge on Jake Livermore that could otherwise have earned him a red card rather than a yellow.

Second-place Manchester United beat third-place Tottenham 1-0 thanks to an Anthony Martial strike in the 81st minute.

Meanwhile, City have equalled a Premier League record of 28 points from 10 matches and are looking hard to stop.

- Raheem Sterling has scored nine goals in all competitions in 2017-18, the most of any Manchester City player, while only Harry Kane (13) and Romelu Lukaku (11) have netted more among Premier League players. Sam Clucas put the Swans ahead with their first touch inside the box but two goals in seven minutes from Sead Kolasinac and Aaron Ramsey earned Arsene Wenger victory to mark his 800th Premier League game in charge of the Gunners.
