Comments:

League position: 11th Brighton and Hove Albion scored three goals in the first-half of a game for the first time since a 4-0 win against Leeds United in the League Championship on 29 February 2016. In his 200th league appearance for Albion, Glenn Murray scored his first league goal against Manchester United; the 80th different team he had scored against in his 442-game league career. This was the second time that the Seagulls had won their opening home game in their six seasons in the top division (lost three); also versus Wolverhampton Wanderers in League Division One in 1980.

Comments:

League position: 10th This was the tenth time that Manchester United had conceded three goals in the first-half of a game in the Premier League, and the first since a 3-0 defeat at Arsenal on 4 October 2015. Paul Pogba had now scored in 12 games in the Premier League and was on the winning team in the previous 11; a joint-competition record he shared with Liverpool's Ryan Babel. David De Gea made the 400th start of his senior club career in this game.
