With this win, Manchester City provisionally lead the EPL table with 10 points, one point ahead of Manchester United, who are to be hosted by Stoke City later on Saturday.

Mane later wished Ederson well in a post on his official Facebook page.

This is the first time that Mane has picked up a Premier League Player of the Month award since his move to England from Austrian side Red Bull Salzburg in 2014.

After 57 minutes, United went in front when Joe Allen lost the ball and the visitors broke, with Mkhitaryan playing in Romelu Lukaku whose first shot was blocked by Butland before he followed up to score - but Choupo-Moting had the last word.

Arsenal quickly recovered from its misery at Anfield by beating Bournemouth 3-0.

The Londoners led after only six minutes when Sead Kolasinac crossed and Danny Welbeck's header looped in.

City had another effort ruled out when Aguero put the ball in the net early in the second half but the Argentine showed generosity when, after latching on to a Fernandinho through ball and facing only Mignolet, he slipped the ball to Jesus for the third. "Obviously we deserved to win".

As the heavy rain made way for sunshine at the Etihad, the contest got off to a lively opening between two of the most attack-minded teams in the Premier League. Jamie Vardy got one back from the penalty spot, but it wasn't enough for a full-on comeback, as Leicester find themselves with 3 points out of 12, one place above the relegation zone.

"You don't lose 5-0 when a lot of things are right but I am not concerned in the long term". We should have had more chances.

It was one-way traffic throughout the second half.

At the end of the month we'll go through the results of the month's polls and vote The Liverpool Offside's player of the month and, come next May, those monthly results will help to determine your TLO player of the season for 2017-18.

"The referee was close to sending me to the stands so I had no power", said the 50-year-old German.
