The Red Devils won the same score in Brighton (0-3). Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s understudies got the job done, with a first goal signed by Scott McTominay (44th), before half-time, then a second signed Juan Mata (73rd). Paul pogba, just entered the game, scored from a free kick (80th), even if the shot was deflected and the goal could be awarded to a Seagull against his camp.
At the same time, Everton, with its starting attack (but with the former Marseillais Niels Nkounkou entry), swept West Ham (4-1), thanks to a hat-trick from Dominic Calvert-Lewin, already a scorer in the first 3 league matches!
