The Red Devils ultimately prevailed thanks to a very early Paul Pogba penalty and Luke Shaw's first ever Premier League goal. Jamie Vardy pulled one back in stoppage time but it was too little, too late.
Tottenham faced Newcastle in the early Saturday game and there was no slip-up for Mauricio Pochettino's men as they ran out 2-1 winners thanks to Dele Alli's headed winner.
Chelsea led the way in the 3pm kick-offs, comfortably beating Huddersfield.

That's one of the many things I detest about Sky, everywhere you look there's ex RS on panels, they have even started doing their own adverts now, what next?

A LOT of possession - pass, pass, pass, pass again - with the same end product - cross it into Mitrovic / get the ball to Mitrovic.
Kierney (sp?) looks one hell of a good midfielder to me.
Good game. Can't wait for our game.
AND... Palace just took the lead. Fulham remind me of Martinez's team a bit.

RS with their usual easy win over West Ham who would be better conceding the points every time they are due to play RS.
Arsenal's defence is piss poor so Man City had an easy time of it. Why they rate Mustafi I don't know and Ozil is too lazy and his passing showed it.
Cardiff and Huddersfield will go down.
