Five things we learned in the Premier League

Man United beat Leicester 2-1 with goals from Pogba, Shaw and Vardy.

England's Raheem Sterling went past two weak challenges to put City ahead in the first quarter of an hour with his 50th league goal, celebrating with a finger to his ear following his mixed 2018 World Cup campaign. The influential effort was capped in the 64th minute when Silva cleverly peeled away from his Arsenal marker to meet Benjamin Mendy's cross with a fine finish that flashed past Gunners goalkeeper Petr Cech.

Jurgen Klopp described Liverpool as Rocky Balboa but do they have a puncher's chance against Manchester City? Mourinho named Pogba captain and hailed a "monster" performance after he took responsibility to open the scoring from the penalty spot.

"We can not test the test before we have a test". Woodward is adamant Pogba is not for sale despite rumoured interest from Barcelona.

Time will tell whether that theme continues but Liverpool at least appears to be a club pulling in the right direction, off the pitch as much as on it. Liverpool were able to exploit West Ham's left side where there was a large gap between Wilshere and Antonio.

Another of Liverpool's summer signings, Xherdan Shaqiri, is likely to start on the bench, with the Liverpool boss unlikely to tinker with the attacking trio of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, who slayed defences for fun last season.

Van Dijk also made 79 clearances (5.64 per 90) in the Premier League for Liverpool, the fourth highest of any other Reds player despite playing just 14 games.

However, the UCL finalists have bounced back stronger than ever, and better than most of their counterparts.

In an era so obsessed with transfers that Fulham were being actively congratulated for spending north of £100 million on new players, Saturday provided a neat reminder that patience is required for newly promoted clubs.

Whilst the four goals scored will stick out most for Liverpool fans, conceding zero at home is something they're hoping to become more accustomed to. "He has to improve, to have training", Sarri said. I think he can regain the ball, his counterpressing is good.

"People from the outside just see Liverpool is buying players, so players who are already here are going to leave".

There is a reason why Manchester City never win at Anfield and why teams like Roma left Merseyside looking like they had spent an hour and a half in a tumble dryer last season.

Sturridge was sent on loan to West Bromwich Albion for the second half of last season after slipping down the Anfield pecking order, seeing his career stagnate due to a number of niggling injury issues.
