Manchester United suffered their first defeat of the season with a shock 2-1 loss at promoted Huddersfield Town on Saturday, leaving them trailing Premier League leaders Manchester City by five points.
Huddersfield took the lead in the 28th minute when Australian midfielder Aaron Mooy robbed Juan Mata in midfield, broke forward, slipped the ball to Tom Ince and then fired home after Ince’s shot was blocked by David De Gea.
United lost defender Phil Jones to injury and his replacement Victor Lindelof was to blame for Huddersfield’s second when he completely misjudged a long clearance from keeper Jonas Lossl, allowing Belgian Laurent Depoitre to round De Gea and slot home.
Jose Mourinho’s side pulled one back with 12 minutes remaining, Marcus Rashford meeting a Romelu Lukaku cross with a firm header at the back post but despite late pressure the Yorkshire side held on for a famous victory.
Meanwhile, Sergio Aguero equalled Manchester City’s goalscoring record as the Premier League leaders saw off hard-working Burnley 3-0 at the Etihad Stadium.
The Argentina striker netted his 177th City goal from a controversially-awarded first-half penalty to set City on their way to a club record-equalling 11th successive win in all competitions.
It was a superb Sunday for London clubs, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, as they both secured commendable results in their respective Premier League games.
Arsenal were at the Goodison Park where they faced a tricky side in Everton but the Gunners produced one of their best displays in the League this season as they whipped their hosts 2-5.
Wayne Rooney had put Everton in front in the 12th minute and they held on to the lead until the 40th minute when Nacho Monreal got the leveller for Arsenal.
The Gunners seized control in the second half and eight minutes after the restart Mesut Ozil put them in front.
Alexandre Lacazette made it 3-1 in the 74th minute and Arsenal were cruising already as Aaron Ramsey made it 4-1 in the 90th minute.
Everton got a face-saving goal in added time through Baye Oumar Niasse but Arsenal were far from done as Alexis Sanchez provided the final act of the day as the tie at Merseyside ended 5-2 in favour of Arsene Wenger’s men.
For the Spurs game, Harry Kane scored a brace while Dele Alli and Heung-Min Son scored a goal each to help their side to a 4-1 win over Liverpool.
