Premier League: Five essential picks for your fantasy team

Brighton claimed a famous first-ever win at Old Trafford as Manchester United suffered a nightmare defeat in Erik ten Hag’s first Premier League match in charge.

After Bruno Fernandes missed an opening chance, Pascal Gross made it the worst possible start for Ten Hag as he finished Danny Welbeck’s cross at the back post to give the visitors a deserved lead. And it quickly turned into a disasterous afternoon as Gross doubled Brighton’s lead after a brilliant team move, while there were boos at half time at Old Trafford.

Cristiano Ronaldo was brought on from the bench after being left out of United’s starting line-up and although the hosts were able to pull one back, Brighton held on to celebrate a famous victory that underlined the scale of the task facing Ten Hag.

West Ham 0-1 Manchester City

53 mins: But a chance! Gundogan gives it away cheaply in the City half. Antonio moves it wide and although the cut-back from Fornals is behind Bowen, it breaks to Rice on the edge. He can’t keep his shot down, though. Gundogan’s challenge might have put him off.

That’s better from Grealish, who runs at Rice and plays a smart one-two with Haaland. Rice steps across well to cut it out.

HALF TIME: West Ham 0-1 Manchester City

Lots of praise for Manchester City and their 80 percent of the ball. Gundogan’s smart turn and pass released Haalaand, and the striker’s acceleration has taken everyone by surprise. He was so fast over the first three or four yards.
