Pulisic scores again but hurts hip in Chelsea win vs. Palace

Frank Lampard wins Manager of the Month award for October

After their breathless midweek 4-4 home draw with Ajax Amsterdam in the Champions League, Frank Lampard's Chelsea side enjoyed a rather more straightforward day against Palace.

The Chelsea attacker scored in his third straight English Premier League match Saturday, clinching the Blues' 2-0 win over London rivals Crystal Palace with his 79th-minute goal.

League leaders Liverpool host City in a highly-anticipated clash between the champions of Europe and champions of England at Anfield today. There's no way they'll stay in the top.

"We are very ambitious in our target, but we know we need time and patience", said Emery, who faces an anxious wait to see if his wish will be granted by the Arsenal board with a two-week worldwide break coming up.

Arsenal have now gone four games without a win after their defeat at the King Power stadium against a Leicester side that is looking every bit as effective as their 2016 title-winning squad.

Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has been crowned the EA SPORTS Player of the Month for October after scoring four goals in three games.

"At Liverpool, of course, we were very good going forward, you have to ask did I have the players to defend how we'd want to defend?"

Vardy has been impressive as Brendan Rodgers' side maintained their strong start to the season last month.

Liverpool host Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday in an encounter which will have huge implications on this season's title race, the league leaders now six-points ahead of Pep Guardiola's side ahead of the latest instalment of what is a growing rivalry between the division's top two.

Abraham, Mason Mount, Fikayo Tomori, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Reece James have all become important players for Lampard, who has given all of them plenty of game time and starting opportunities this term. We've said it before and learnt our lesson.

West Ham's misery was complete when keeper Roberto Jimenez punched Ashley Westwood's corner into his own net. "I am concerned at the easy goals we are conceding", Pellegrini, whose side have careered down the table, said.

But Richarlison struck the victor 15 minutes from time to secure Everton's first away league win since March.

Newcastle came from behind to beat Bournemouth 2-1 and Everton won 2-1 at Southampton.
