LONDON: Manchester City cruised to a 4-1 win at Brighton & Hove Albion, while Everton collapsed to a shock 5-2 defeat at home to Watford in English Premier League on Saturday.
Manchester City remain two points behind Chelsea after another impressive display on the south coast.
Phil Foden scored twice for Pep Guardiola's side as they opened up a 3-0 lead within the opening 31 minutes. The visitors were on the front foot from the outset at Brighton and took a 13th minute lead through Ilkay Gundogan after a mistake from home goalkeeper Robert Sanchez.
City soon extended their lead as Foden got his first of the match, steering Jack Grealish's square pass into the net in the 28th minute, before the 21-year-old got the final touch on Gabriel Jesus' shot to make it 3-0 three minutes later.
Alexis Mac Allister's penalty nine minutes from time gave Brighton some consolation but City substitute Riyad Mahrez restored the three-goal advantage in stoppage time.
Rafa Benitez's Everton were 2-1 up at home to promoted Watford but then conceded four goals inside 13 minutes as they collapsed to a surprise loss.
Josh King, the former Bournemouth forward who was on loan at Everton last season, scored a hat-trick on his return to Goodison Park as new Watford boss Claudio Ranieri enjoyed a much-needed win for the Hornets, who are 14th on 10 points.
Ranieri's first game in charge, last week, ended in a 5-0 home defeat by Liverpool but the Italian said he had been able to benefit from a full week with his players.
Leeds United's disappointing start to the season continued as they needed a stoppage-time goal from Spanish striker Rodrigo to scrape a 1-1 home draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Rodrigo's penalty cancelled out Hwang Hee-chan's early goal for the visitors.
Newcastle's first game since the departure of manager Steve Bruce ended in a 1-1 draw in the capital after Callum Wilson's acrobatic strike cancelled out Christian Benteke's opener for Crystal Palace. Ivory Coast winger Maxwel Cornet scored twice for winless Burnley in their 2-2 draw at Southampton. Agencies
