Sunday Recap

Coach Mark Hudson took temporary charge of Huddersfield on Sunday following manager David Wagner's departure on Monday.

The hosts survived a strong penalty shout on 13 minutes when Terence Kongolo brought down Sterling with a clumsy challenge:

Referee Andre Marriner waved the visitors' appeals away, but they managed to take the lead just five minutes later.

Danilo let fly from range, with his shot taking a big deflection off Christopher Schindler's head to beat goalkeeper Jonas Lossl.

The strike was the Brazilian's first of the season and also saw City reach a landmark:

The visitors were not at their best in a sloppy first half but put the game out of Huddersfield's reach after the break with two goals in two minutes.

Sane crossed for Sterling to head home Manchester City's second goal on 54 minutes, the German then slotted home the third after a Sergio Aguero flick-on.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino brought in Fernando Llorente for injured captain Harry Kane against Fulham, but the 33-year-old suffered a dismal start.

There were just 17 minutes on the clock when Llorente diverted Jean Michael Seri's corner past his own goalkeeper.

The striker's own goal means he's picked up an unenviable record:

Fulham went close to doubling their lead five minutes before half-time. Andre Schurrle's volley was parried by Hugo Lloris and fell to Aleksandar Mitrovic to head home. However, his effort was correctly ruled out for offside.

Tottenham took just five minutes of the second half to level matters. Fulham failed to deal with a long ball forward, allowing Christian Eriksen to cross for Dele Alli to head home:

The visitors had the better chances in the second half. Danny Rose's deflected strike hit the crossbar, while Llorente missed a glorious chance from the full-back's cross inside the last 10 minutes.

Spurs' injury problems then grew even worse as Alli was forced off late on with a hamstring problem:

The game looked to be heading for a draw until Winks arrived at the far post to head home substitute Georges-Kevin N'Koudou's cross in the third minute of stoppage time.
