The red devils lose to Brigthon in a match that their star, Cristiano Ronaldo, started on the bench and the 'sky blues' beat West Ham


Trouble continues at Old Trafford. As if the Red Devils weren't having enough doubts about the future of Cristiano Ronaldo, who started from the bench, they fell to Brighton in their Premier League debut this season. A defeat that translates into the second of the great surprises of the return of the English championship after
Liverpool tied on his visit to newly promoted Fulham.

The Ten Hag era could not have started worse in the 'Theatre of Dreams'. A double by German Pascal Gross in the first half allowed the team from the coastal city to take their first three points of the season. The presence of the Mancunian star in the second half was insufficient to avoid the debacle at the start of the championship.

The one who did not fail was his neighbor. Manchester City did not spare on their visit to the British capital, beating West Ham with a brace from Erling Haaland. The star signing of Pep Guardiola's team made his debut in style in his debut in the Premier League. If Darwin Núñez had managed to score with Liverpool on Saturday in his first match in the English championship, the Norwegian was not going to miss his appointment with the goal either, although one was not going to be enough for his voracity.

In the other match of the day on Sunday, Leicester and Brentford drew in what became the second game that ended in a draw at the beginning of the English league. The 'Foxes' began by going ahead with a goal from the Belgian Timothy Castage after half an hour and another from Dewsbury-Hall on the way back from the locker room served to widen the gap. Although the Londoners would finally equalize with goals from Toney and Josh Dasilva.
