Man City, Arsenal strike late; Everton woe; Watford and Palace impress

Nobody really expected Huddersfield Town to stop Manchester City's eternal run of victories, but you could almost hear the sighs of disappointment around the country when Raheem Sterling finally broke the Terriers' brave resistance.

That's 11 victories in a row for Pep Guardiola's side, a daunting record indeed. For those of us who like a close title race, it's all a bit of a shame. Manchester United have an incredible home record; Arsenal are demonstrating reserves of fortitude that we never knew they possessed; Chelsea are still knocking around somewhere. But no-one seems able to get close to City, who are still eight points clear of second.
