Champions League: Barca Enter Knockouts, Red Star Stun Liverpool

In short, City ran through Southampton 6-1 to the point where it was nearly embarrassing for the visitors, with Mark Hughes having to sit and ponder over what could've been against his former club.

Manchester City moved to the top of the Premier League with a two-point lead over Chelsea and Liverpool thanks to a 6-1 win over Southampton on Sunday afternoon.

Southampton manager Mark Hughes, whose future has been the subject of increasing speculation following a run that has now seen him win just four of his 19 league games in charge, reacted furiously to yet more appalling defending from his side.

The win means that City are now top of the table, two points clear of Chelsea in second and Liverpool in third.

Morata scored a brace for the Blues during the weekend as they sailed to a 3-1 victory against Crystal Palace, which seemingly marked a change in fortunes for the Spaniard, who was strongly criticised for his performances last season.

The Argentine keeps scoring for City and the one he netted against Southampton was his 150th Premier League goal for Manchester City.

Defenders Marcos Alonso, David Luiz, Antonio Rudiger and striker Alvaro Morata have not travelled to Belarus. The point ensures that Inter can reach the Champions League knockouts for the first time since 2012 with a draw against Tottenham Hotspur in their next fixture on 28 November.

"We have the team and squad to fight for the titles of both competitions", Firmino told Goal.

"That's the only chance Liverpool have got, because City are better than them".

Chelsea are to use Liverpool's toils against Red Star Belgrade as a reminder they can not let their standards slip as they seek to secure qualification for the Europa League knockout phase with victory over Bate Borisov.

This Ghana global has scored plenty of goals since he returned to Red Star in August and they need him to spark into top form against Liverpool. "For us, the best work for him is that he will play for 45 or 50 minutes against Bate".

Liverpool have made their best ever start to a Premier League season winning eight games and drawing three to take 27 points from a possible 33.
