Defending Champions, Manchester City maintained their perfect start in the 2023/2024 season by defeating West Ham 3-1 on Saturday, after the return from the international break.
Gatekeepers News reports that goals from Jeremy Doku, Bernardo Silva and Erling Haaland helped City fight back from a half-time deficit.
Although Pep Guardiola’s men had an incredible 29 shots, there was a combination of missed opportunities, brilliant goalkeeping and brave defending that kept the game in the balance until the dying minutes.
Liverpool Defeat Wolves
Just like City, Liverpool came from behind to dominate the second-half display against Wolves in a 3-1 victory on Saturday.
Although Hwang Hee-chan put the home side ahead early at Molineux, Liverpool flew out of the blocks after the restart and equalised through Cody Gakpo 10 minutes into the second half.
The Reds pinned Wolves back for long periods and got their reward when Andy Robertson netted in the 85th minute before an own goal from Hugo Bueno added gloss to the scoreline.
Jurgen Klopp told BBC, “Turning games around is helpful in a season but we cannot rely on it, we cannot.
“We have to play better in the first half of games generally. We are not stable yet, that is not possible. Too many things are new.”
Brighton Worsen Man Utd Crisis
Although a similar scoreline (3-1) was recorded at Old Trafford, this was in favour of visiting Brighton.
Roberto De Zerbi’s men compounded the troubled Manchester United crisis in Saturday’s Premier League clash.
A first-half goal from former United forward Danny Welbeck and scores from Pascal Gross and Joao Pedro in the second half put Brighton ahead.
Hannibal Mejbri’s first goal for the club was no consolation for United, who were booed off at the final whistle.
It was the Red Devil’s second successive defeat after their 3-1 loss to Arsenal before the international break.
Having suffered three defeats in five league games already this season, United are lagging in 12th place.
