It's also short-sighted because of how the calendar works. His link-up play with Ede Hazard created some risky opportunities and if it not for a lack of composure, Moses could easily have grabbed himself a goal or an assist.

Stoke boss Mark Hughes said: "We contributed to our own downfall". The rivals are level with 10 points through four rounds of the 38-match season.

Issues arose concerning both the manner of Liverpool's approach and with their offers of financial and other support in order to allow the prospect and his family make the switch north to Merseyside.

Look back to last season, for example. This should be a very one-sided affair and Manchester City should score multiple goals. It turns out that would be nearly 20 percent of their total points won, as the Sky Blues finished in third with 78 points. They were winless last season in all 12 matches against sides who finished in the top six.

Scoring just one goal in his first two league seasons, Doucoure has a pair in five this year.

Chelsea need one more point to reach 1,800 in the Premier League points - only Arsenal (1829) and Manchester United (2034) have more in the competition.


"Our fans were fantastic today and they pushed a lot the team in every moment of the game", Conte said. By November, the Premier League table begins to truly take shape. We started well and scored early.

"After the first few matches it does seem like they now have a squad capable of winning the league", said Scholes here on the sidelines of Premier Futsal.

Nemanja Matic moved to Manchester United towards the end of the summer, although it seemed Conte wasn't quite as happy about losing the midfielder as he was to see the back of Costa.

United have already scored 16 times in the league, netting a further seven in the Champions League and League Cup. They welcomed former captain Wayne Rooney when he travelled with his new side Everton to Old Trafford in their previous league game.

The result confirmed that Chelsea are in the title mix with Man United and Man City. Of the teams in the top three, City had the best win, a dominant 5-0 showing against Liverpool. However, the Blues will be looking to bounce back from what was a lacklustre performance in a 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge last gameweek.

Living in Manchester means an abundance of sports clubs in your local area.
