Manchester United, coached by Portugal’s José Mourinho, suffered their first defeat in the English football championship on Matchday 2 with a 3-2 defeat at Brighton.

The hosts scored two goals in the space of 25 minutes and 27 minutes by striker Glenn Murray and Irish defender Shane Duffy, but the red devils appeared to be able to rectify the false start when Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku reduced to 2-1, at 34.

United suffered a hard setback when midfielder Pascal Gross increased Brighton’s advantage over the interval in the 44th minute on a penalty and the best they could do was to reduce to 90 + 5, also through a maximum penalty, made by French midfielder Paul Pogba.

Last season, but on the penultimate round, Gross had been the scorer of Brighton’s 1-0 home defeat at Manchester United, who has now missed the opportunity to join the group of leaders in the competition, including rival and champion Manchester City.

The ‘citizens’ thrashed 6-1 at home to Huddersfield, largely because of the effectiveness of striker Sergio Agüero, who scored a hat-trick in a game in which Portuguese international Bernardo Silva was a totalist but was white ‘.

The Manchester team took 25 minutes to open the scoring, through Agüero, following a ‘goal’ goal by Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson but quickly reached 3-0 with goals from Brazilian Gabriel Jesus, 31, and, again, the Argentine, at 35.

Huddersfield narrowed to 43 minutes through Slovenian midfielder Jon Stankovic and paid off in the second half, when the hosts arrived in the final, followed by Spaniard David Silva (48), Agüero (75) and an own goal Dutch defender Terence Kongolo (84).

The Argentine striker, who joined Brazil’s Richarlison (Everton) in charge of the top scorers, both with three goals, completed the ninth hat-trick in the Primera Liga, only to be surpassed by former England international forward Alan Shearer .

City have topped Watford – who have won 3-1 at Burnley today – Chelsea, Tottenham and Bournemouth, all with two victories in their opening two games.
