• Palace manager accepts they will have to keep fighting
• We’re still very close to the bottom of the table, adds Hodgson

Roy Hodgson has warned his Crystal Palace players against complacency after watching a team who had made the worst start to a top-flight season clamber out of the relegation zone for the first time, and for at least 24 hours, with a dramatic late comeback against Watford.

Goals from the substitutes Bakary Sako and James McArthur secured an unlikely 2-1 win and extended Palace’s unbeaten run to six matches, hoisting them out of the bottom three and depositing West Bromwich Albion below the cut-off before Wednesday’s fixtures.

Now Crystal Palace have hope. How could they not when after spluttering in arrears for almost the entire match, blunted and diminished by an imposing Watford team, they still plucked an improbable win from the jaws of defeat?

• City coach says his team’s celebrations were ‘definitely not’ excessive
• United manager questions the ‘education’ at his rival’s club

José Mourinho has questioned whether Manchester City’s players have the same “education” as their Manchester United counterparts and insisted the Premier League leaders were to blame for the brawl at Old Trafford that has left the clubs facing the possibility of disciplinary action.

Mourinho accused City of showing a lack of respect with what he perceived to be excessive dressing-room celebrations after Sunday’s win and angrily turned on a BBC correspondent for asking whether his club might be punished. “I think you work for another club,” the United manager said, “and not for the press” on another tense day when the deteriorating relationship between the city rivals was laid bare.

Conceding the title early can sometimes backfire, and it would have been easy to imagine Antonio Conte’s players lacking the appetite for a wet night in west Yorkshire after hearing their manager admit Manchester City might be uncatchable, yet in the event Chelsea played like champions.

Huddersfield were outclassed, indeed a little fortunate not to be embarrassed, once Chelsea got into their smooth, attacking stride. “The best team we’ve seem here all season” was one opinion expressed over the PA at half-time, which is quite a compliment considering City have already been to these parts and won.

The Manchester managers were happy to go on the attack but in doing so were unable accept that, just possibly, both clubs were to blame

‘Bye-bye,” José Mourinho said. His press conference had been cut short, he was out of his seat and his voice was not exactly filled with warmth. But then he stopped in the doorway and we were given a tiny glimpse of what Ederson, Manchester City’s goalkeeper, encountered in the labyrinthine corridors of Old Trafford on Sunday evening.

“You don’t like Bournemouth, hey?” Mourinho wanted to know of the assembled media. “You don’t respect them? You don’t think they are a team capable of coming to Old Trafford and doing well? No respect for Eddie Howe? No respect for the players?”

• Injuries to John Stones and Benjamin Mendy give manager a headache
• Guardiola praises team spirit as key to record winning sequence

Pep Guardiola believes he may have to sign a defender in the January transfer window or Manchester City could be “in trouble”.

Benjamin Mendy is recovering from a serious knee problem and will not return before April while John Stones has a pulled hamstring and is unlikely to play before the new year. Guardiola also admits Vincent Kompany is too injury-prone to be relied on, the captain having to be replaced at half-time of the 2-1 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford owing to his latest muscle malady.
