Two games into the new Premier League season, champions Manchester City raised the bar even higher when they crushed promoted Bournemouth 4-0 on Saturday to maintain their fast start.

A few hours later, however, neighbours Manchester United plumbed new depths when they suffered a 4-0 drubbing at Brentford to sit at the bottom of the table for the first time since 1992.

United conceded four times in the opening 35 minutes and new manager Erik ten Hag afterwards apologised to the fans.

Arsenal joined City on six points as former City striker Gabriel Jesus struck twice in a 4-2 win over Leicester City.

Leeds United looked on course for a second successive win but squandered a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Southampton -- one of three draws on a sultry Saturday afternoon.

Everton suffered a second successive defeat as they went down 2-1 at Aston Villa, for whom Danny Ings and substitute Emiliano Buendia were both on target.

Fulham, who drew with Liverpool in their first game back in the top flight, missed the chance to earn their first win when Aleksander Mitrovic had a second-half penalty saved by Jose Sa in a 0-0 draw at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Brighton & Hove Albion against Newcastle United also ended scoreless.
