Man City Crystal 4 Palace 0
Delph 22′ Agüero 41′, 68′ Silva 84′
Manchester City moved top of the Premier League by thrashing a lacklustre Crystal Palace side.
After a slow start from the hosts, midfielder Fabian Delph gave them the lead with a long-range drive that squirmed under Wayne Hennessey.
Striker Sergio Aguero doubled the advantage with an effort that deflected in off the head of Scott Dann.
Aguero finished off a sublime team move and David Silva added a fourth, with Palace winless in five league games.

A stray backpass by Chancel Mbemba let Nikica Jelavic score for the Hammers.
Newcastle squandered a number of chances but held on for a first win in six league games.
Magpies striker Aleksandar Mitrovic produced a hard-working performance but was denied by Hammers keeper Adrian three times.
