    A contender for match of the season. Drama from kick off to full time whistle.
    Man City reject Cole Palmer comes back to haunt them.
    Watch out Bukayo Saka. The competition for the 3 Lions right wing position is ramping up, with the likes of Foden, Bowen and now Palmer in the mix.
    Congrats to Haaland for scoring with his backside today. To score with your buttocks in a league as competitive as the Premier League is quite an achievement. Another record to add to his brilliant collection.
