Yeah, one hell of a gamble from Brighton given his injury record over the past three or four years.

His weetabix legs were always going to go wrong at some point this season, I can’t believe it’s happened in the first game - didn’t even make it to HT!!

Wonder if Brighton were savvy enough to put an injury clause into his contract.

He actually went down "injured" after 44 seconds, but carried on until about 44 minutes. We could have a mini competition of who plays fewest minutes between Lallana at Brighton and Lemina at Fulham.........Lallana currently on 44 minutes, Lemina on zero.

Could maybe add Hojbjerg into the competition if he has many more games like his Spurs debut.

Everton will be the Leicester of last season. Riding the crest of a wave, all the ‘experts’ will tip them for a title challenge and Champions League football, only to fall by the wayside as their momentum falters after Christmas.

That’s nonsense. Leeds defender pulled his leg out of the challenge and the Fulham player put his foot in and went down to draw the penalty. Ridiculous, he literally moved his foot towards the withdrawing leg and let himself fall.

Just on, walking already, Leeds nearly score. What a lazy bugger. Too bad, he has talent but his head’s not there.

Even the commentators are on Lemina about his lack of awareness ha ha

Wow, kudos to Lemina for getting stuck in, imposing himself on the game and inspiring Fulham to victory...oh wait, that didn’t happen, he just happened to be taking a stroll in Leeds for 20 minutes...

I do enjoy Utd's decline. Know too many Utd fans. All they do is moan about lack of signings, every year however much they spend. 

They're a richer version of us in our stubborn strategy of only signing younger players. They need some older experienced quality in there, which is exactly what they had when their best youngsters did come through.

Martial isn't good enough to be a starting Utd striker. They've got no real wingers and their holding mids are crap. 

Really enjoyed Palace today. They were bang average against us (and only had to be) but today they've defended well, offered a constant threat and deserve to win by a couple. 

Also love that these days a home loss to open like this is basically title chances over for Utd.

Quite enjoying Gary Neville having something of a meltdown.

I think it’s a realisation setting in that they’re still nowhere the blue half or the Scousers and face another year in the shadows.

Its is very early days but it is amazing how form from the post lockdown matches has been turned on its head in this new season. Palace and Everton were poor when they returned from lockdown. They now look very good. Man U and us (admittedly on the basis of just a few matches ) now don't look nothing like the teams that played after lockdown.

It is not just in the Premier League - Barnsley had a cracking end of season but they have started very poorly this year.

I guess they did have a longer break by not breaking into a sweat in most games after the restart.

Absolutely hilarious faux pas from Patrice Evra regarding Louis Saha and Moyes’s daughter leading to an exquisitely embarrassed apology from the bird presenting, And now an excruciating atmosphere in the studio during their punditry on the Arsenal-West Ham match. Sky will wish they never sacked the three old guys!!

Louis Saha, don’t you mean Wilfred Zaha? 😂 (sorry to go MLG)

Evra (who played at United at the same time as Zaha) claimed Zaha was dropped by Moyes when stories of an ‘affair’ with Moyes’ daughter were revealed. Sky apologised as (despite what Evra who was a teammate of Zaha said) Zaha has never met Moyes daughter.
