Manchester United v Brighton, West Ham 1-3 Manchester City: clockwatch – live


Key events

Full time: West Ham 1-3 Man City

An excellent win for City, who had to come from 1-0 down at half-time to beat a dogged West Ham. Jeremy Doku, Bernardo Silva and Erling Haaland scored the goals.

Penalty to Villa! Chris Richards has been penalised for a tackle on Ollie Watkins. On Soccer Saturday, Mike Dean thinks it might be overturned.

Man Utd 1-3 Brighton Ansu Fati misses a terrific chance to turn a great win into a once-in-a-lifetime victory. Andre Onana denied him.

Man Utd 1-3 Brighton “Let’s face it,” says Jeff Sax. “Since Ferguson, nothing has worked…”

He’s not exempt from blame either.

We’re into injury time. Manchester United are facing their third defeat in five, the first time that has happened in the Premier League era, and Sheffield United are a few minutes away from a smash-and-grab victory at Spurs. The assumption that United will go down looks more questionable with each passing game. Sheffield United I mean.

GOAL! Aston Villa 1-1 Crystal Palace (Duran 87)

Villa have finally been rewarded for their second-half pressure. The substitute Jhon Duran, who looks a really good signing, has smashed an equaliser past Sam Johnstone.

Disallowed goal! Spurs 0-1 Sheff Utd

The substitute Brennan Johnson is denied a first Spurs goal by a tight but correct offside decision.

GOAL! West Ham 1-3 Man City (Yep 86)

He’s missed some great chances today, but Erling Haaland has finally got his goal after a fine pass from Bernardo Silva. Five wins out of five for City, and it’ll soon be four titles out of four.

  • West Ham 1-2 Man City

Newcastle v Brentford is the late Premier League game. Barry Glendenning has the team news for that one.

Aston Villa 0-1 Crystal Palace Ollie Watkins’ shot hits the post, rebounds onto the diving Sam Johnstone and goes wide. This would be a classic Palace away win: 32 per cent possession, one shot on target.

Bundesliga: Mainz 1-3 Stuttgart

“Everyone loves a late-blooming striker,” writes Kári Tulinius, “and it looks like Stuttgart have one in 27-year-old Guinean international Serhou Guirassy. Last season he scored 11 goals in 22 matches. So far this season he has 8 in 4, including a hat-trick today against Mainz.”

GOAL! West Ham 1-2 Man City (Bernardo 76)

It was fun while it lasted. City have come from behind to lead through Bernardo Silva, who ran onto a lovely scooped pass from Julian Alvarez and touched the ball past Alphonse Areola. Erling Haaland did well – he could have stolen the goal but realised he was offside and left it.

GOAL! Spurs 0-1 Sheff Utd (Hamer 73)

My word! Gustavo Hamer, who looks such a good player, has swept Sheffield United into a shock lead in north London.

GOAL! Man Utd 1-3 Brighton (Hannibal 73)

The young substitute Hannibal has got one back with a fierce drive from 25 yards. Sounds like Jason Steele might have done better.

GOAL! Man Utd 0-3 Brighton (Joao Pedro 71)

Brighton – beautiful, life-affirming Brighton – are doing it again. They made six changes and they are still running riot at Old Trafford. The substitute Joao Pedro has made it three with a nonchalant first-time finish from the edge of the area, and United are officially in the malodorous stuff.

  • West Ham 1-1 Man City

GOAL! Preston 2-1 Plymouth (Hardie 61) This happened ages ago, sorry.

Spurs 0-0 Sheff Utd The frustration continues for Spurs. I’ve no idea what has actually happened, because we can’t legally watch the game, but the fact it’s still 0-0 probably wasn’t part of the plan.

GOALS! Celtic 3-0 Dundee (Kyogo 63, O’Riley 67)

Man Utd 0-2 Brighton “Looking at that Man United squad, I am genuinely astounded by how weak it is,” writes Valdarez. “Reguilon? Lindelof`? A 20-year-old kid up front? Jonny Evans and Antony Martial on the bench? What has Ten Hag spent over 350 million Euros on?”

Antony and perhaps Onana aside I think he’s bought pretty well, though he paid over the odds for a few players. In his defence, they have a lot of players unavailable at the moment: Varane, Shaw, Mount, Antony, Sancho, Amrabat. But it is in danger of unravelling, again.

Man Utd 0-2 Brighton Anthony Martial and Hannibal Mejbri are on for Rasmus Hojlund and the injured Casemiro. The United fans were not entirely in agreement with Erik ten Hag’s decision.

Ansu Fati has come on for Brighton in place of Adam Lallana.

GOAL! Fulham 1-0 Luton (Vinicius 65)

The substitute Carlos Vinicius has broken Luton down at Craven Cottage, scoring from close range after Willian’s dipping cross was pushed away by Thomas Kaminski.

Man Utd 0-2 Brighton Enough of the negativity: how good are Brighton? They started today without a number of key players – Estupinan, Ferguson, Joao Pedro, March, Enciso, Gilmour – and they’re 2-0 up against a team who never lose at home.

  • West Ham 1-1 Man City

Man Utd 0-2 Brighton “The Dutch obsession with discipline is not working…” says Jeff Sax. “Only Maguire can stop the next goal… And by the way, the state of MU on and off the field has nothing to do with the owners.”

Trust me, Jeff, it has everything to do with them.

West Ham 1-1 Man City Ederson has just made a superb save to keep out Kurt Zouma’s header. This sounds like a cracking game.

Man Utd 0-2 Brighton It was a terrific finish from Pascal Gross, who dummied Lisandro Martinez in the area and rifled a low shot past Onana.

I’d have to double check this but I think last time Man Utd lost three of their first five league games was in the chillingly bleak winter of 1989-90.

GOAL! Man Utd 0-2 Brighton (Gross 53)

Manchester United are in all sorts. Pascal Gross, who scored both goals when Brighton won at Old Trafford last season, has put them 2-0 ahead!

  • West Ham 1-1 Man City

West Ham 1-1 Man City Julian Alvarez hits the post with a free-kick, then Alphonse Areola does well to save Erling Haaland’s acrobatic volley. A City goal is coming, probably goals plural.

GOAL! Celtic 1-0 Dundee (Turnbull 51 pen)

In a surprising development, Celtic are ahead. And so are St Mirren at Motherwell thanks to Scott Tanser.
