Manchester City have returned to the summit of the Premier League table after a thumping 6-1 victory over Newcastle United at the Etihad Stadium.

Sergio Aguero scored five goals and Kevin De Bruyne netted once to complete a stunning comeback after Aleksandar Mitrovic put the Magpies ahead in the 18th minute.

City have responded to their back-to-back defeats in emphatic fashion, while Steve McClaren’s side have now gone eight league games without a win.

Southampton stunned Chelsea with a 3-1 win at Stamford Bridge to inflict further misery on Jose Mourinho and the Premier League champions tonight.

Willian fired the hosts into a 1-0 lead with an excellent free kick, but Steven Davis’s fine volley just before half time ensured parity at the break.

Goals from Sadio Mane and Graziano Pelle then completed the scoring for the Saints in an error-laden second half from the Blues.
