London: Manchester United’s problems continue to build after they were beaten 2-0 at home to Manchester City in derby. The defeat is the second painful league setback for the United fans, coming on the back of their 5-0 humiliation by Liverpool a fortnight ago.

The game was all but over as a contest after a first half completely dominated by Pep Guardiola’s side, who took a sixth-minute lead when Eric Bailly sliced the ball into his own net.

City continually found space to attack United’s three-man defence. But for a series of heroic saves from David de Gea, the game would have been out of sight long before Bernardo Silva made it 2-0 on the stroke of halftime.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side improved after the break with Jadon Sancho replacing Bailly and a return to a flat back four, but City were closer to adding a third when Phil Foden hit the woodwork in the closing minutes.

The win allowed City to close the gap at the top of the table on Chelsea, who were held to a 1-1 draw at home to a solid and improving Burnley.

Everything looked to be going according to plan when Kai Havertz converted Reece James’ cross in the 33rd minute, but the woodwork and a series of good saves from Burnley keeper Nick Pope saw them fail to net a second and Matej Vydra’s 79th minute strike earned the visitors a valuable point.

Norwich won their first league game of the season, while extending Brentford’s losing run to four games, thanks to first half goals from Mathias Norman and a Teemu Pukki penalty that gave them a 2-0 lead in southwest London. Although Rico Henry pulled a goal back for Brentford, the Canaries held on for three vital points.

Wilfred Zaha and Conor Gallagher scored second half goals to give Crystal Palace a comfortable win at home to Wolves, with Gallagher giving another display to add to his growing reputation.

Eddie Howe was in the stands to watch Newcastle United claim a point with a dramatic 1-1 draw away to Brighton.

The man who is almost certain to be named as the successor to Steve Bruce witnessed Isaac Haydon’s 66th minute goal cancel out Leandro Troussard’s 22nd minute penalty for Brighton.

There was high drama in injury time as Brighton keeper Robert Sanchez was sent off for a professional foul on Callum Wilson, who had a clear run on goal, and defender Lewis Dunk failed to find a goal to give them the first win of the campaign.
