Cardiff City 0 – 0 Newcastle United | Newcastle United were denied their first win of the season when Brazilian forward Kennedy saw his last-gasp penalty saved by Cardiff keeper Neil Etheridge. While the save capped a disappointing display for Kennedy, Etheridge was once again the hero having saved a penalty in both of Cardiff’s opening fixtures this season. Newcastle were reduced to 10-men in the game after substitute Isaac Hayden was sent off in the 66th minute for sliding in from behind on Josh Murphy. (Image – Reuters)

Brighton 3 – 2 Manchester United | Brighton & Hove Albion stunned Manchester United with three goals in the first half. Striker Glenn Murray opened the scoring in the 25th minute, when he received the ball from Solly March and dinked over keeper De Gea with aplomb. United were still reeling from that goal when two minutes later Shane Duffy picked up a loose clearance from a corner and smashed home with his left foot to double their lead. Lukaku reduced the deficit in the 34th minute when he headed home after Luke Shaw’s volley was deflected towards him. However, Brighton won a penalty a minute before halftime when Eric Bailly brought down Pascal Gross inside the area and the midfielder himself slotted home the penalty. Paul Pogba got a consolation goal from the penalty spot in the 94th minute but it was too little too late for United who were handed their first loss this season. (Image - Reuters)
