(ANSA) – ROME, AUGUST 13 – Opposite destinies, in the first two days of the Premier League, for the Manchester teams: City and United. The team of Pep Guardiola continues with full points, repeating the success in the debut match and dropping the poker at home against Bournemouth thanks to goals from Gundogan (19 ‘pt), De Bruyne (31’ pt), Foden (37 ‘ pt) and Lerma (own goal, 34 ‘st).
Instead, United collapses and, on the ground of the Brentford Community, is already overwhelmed by an avalanche of goals in the first half (4). Da Silva (10 ‘), Jensen (18’), Mee (30 ‘) and Mbeumo (35’) hit the target in the goal defended by David De Gea. Erik Ten Hag plays Cristiano Ronaldo from the start, but it’s useless. For Manchester United it is already a deep crisis: two defeats in as many games, with 6 goals conceded and only one to his credit.
Today’s results: Aston Villa-Everton 2-1 Arsenal-Leicester 4-2 Brentford-Manchester United 4-0 Brighton-Newcastle 0-0 Manchester City-Bournemouth 4-0 Southampton-Leeds United 2-2 Wolves-Fulham 0-0 Tomorrow: Nottingham Forest-West Ham at 3 pm Chelsea-Tottenham at 5.30 pm Monday: Liverpool-Crystal Palace at 9 pm (ANSA).
