Comments:

League position: 13th Wolverhampton Wanderers failed in their attempt to win three consecutive games at Molineux in the top division for the first time since November 1980. Rúben Neves scored Wolves' first goal in this season in the Premier League in this game. He also scored their first goal in the Premier League in the previous season. They had still yet to win a Premier League game played on a Monday (drawn two, lost four). Only Hull City (ten) had now played more Monday games in the competition without a win.

Comments:

League position: 4th Manchester United avoided losing their opening away game in two consecutive league seasons for the first time since 1981-82 in League Division One. Anthony Martial became the 53rd player to score 50 goals for United in all competitions. Eric Cantona is the only other Frenchman to have scored 50 or more goals for the club. Rui Patrício saved Paul Pogba’s 68th minute penalty. He had now missed four penalties in the Premier League since the start of the previous season; more than any other player in the competition in the same period.
