Holy smokes I actually called one correctly. Tottenham and Liverpool did indeed draw 1-1. But Liverpool was clearly the better team for the first 70 minutes. Tottenham played better the last 20 minutes but they are glad to "escape' with a point at home. Liverpool has to be disappointed not earning three points on the road.

 

Chelsea is all over Burnley in the first 15 mintues. Burnley is lucky they are only down 1.

Spurs better pick up someone in the window, because when Dembele is out, Kane becomes useless.  Lucky today as you say.

Egregious non-call on a handball by Hull's Meyler a few minutes ago. We'll see if it's a difference-maker. United have spent most of the second half in the Hull end, so they may tally yet, but it's pretty late, in the 78th. It's been pouring the whole match.

Several good chances at goal for United, but nothing in. A couple of scares from Hull, one off a deflection, but de Gea hasn't had a lot to do.

The barrage continues. The Hull 'keeper has had a couple of good saves in the last several minutes.

Looks like Pogba gets a high foot to Meyler's head. Karma there, but more fitting would be a goal, as that was abject robbery of a penalty chance on the non-call. We'll see what Mourinho has to say if it ends 0-0.

Brilliant wing play from Rooney on the left corner feeds Rashford for a goal at 90+2', seconds after a Hull chance. Hull City 0, Manchester United 1.

That's the way it ends. They definitely deserved the result, though Hull were often game.

Hull played the way they needed to to try and get a result and they dang near did. Weather helped them a lot as both teams had trouble connecting on a good series of passes. But in the end Man U just had too much for Hull and gets the three points

Only Chelsea and United with full points through three matches; both have a +5 GD. City could match or surpass that tomorrow.

ManU fans, why isn't Rashford starting? Dude creates every time he's on the field.

Have you looked at their roster? They are freaking deep which should really help them in the grind of all the games they have to play between EPL, FA Cup, and Europa.They simply can't play everybody. But I won't be surprised if Rashford makes his way into the starting 11 but which midfielder do you sit then? Rooney, Fellaini, Pogba, Mata, or Martial. Rashford has plenty of time. Doesn't even turn 20 until the end of October!!

Quick answer is Martial. Agree though their depth is ridiculous and they'll use it for sure.

City go top with a 3-1 win over West Ham. The Manchester derby one week from Saturday should be a scintillating affair, with both teams on a 100% start and United allowing a league-best one goal over the first three matches, not to mention that whole managers bit. City may have to go without Sergio Aguero, however. In the victory over West Ham, he threw an elbow at the Hammers' Winston Reid, catching him in the throat. The referee said he did not see the incident, so the FA will be going to the tape, and Aguero could face a three-match ban for violent conduct.

He should. The FA is typically pretty strong on this type of crap. No place for it. Period.
