Comments:

League position: 6th Ole Gunnar Solskjær became the first manager to win their first six league games in charge of Manchester United. Only Carlo Ancelotti at Chelsea and Pep Guardiola at Manchester City had previously won their opening six games at a club in the Premier League. Paul Pogba had now scored ten goals in all competitions so far in this season to equal the best scoring season of his club career (also for Juventus in 2014-15 and 2015-16). At 21 years and 80 days, Marcus Rashford became the youngest-ever player to score in four consecutive league games for United. He had now scored 41 goals in 150 appearances in all club competitions. Luke Shaw was originally named in the starting line-up before falling ill during the pre-match warm-up. Diogo Dalot was promoted to the starting XI with Matteo Darmian taking his place on the bench.

Comments:

League position: 13th Brighton and Hove Albion had now lost 100 games in the top division (played 229, won 63). The Seagulls had now conceded 201 goals in their away games in the top division. They had now lost 20 away games in the Premier League since the start of the previous season; more than any other team.
