Manchester City 4-0 Brighton & Hove Albion
Goals: De Bruyne (2e), Agüero (43)e, 55e) and B. Silva (79e)City still cartons, but his infirmary fills up.
By conceding a goal from De Bruyne on a David Silva offering from the start of the match (1-0, 2e), Brighton could not worse start this game against the defending champion. Obviously, it was necessary for the players of Pep Guardiola unwind. And as often in these cases, Sergio Aguero goes for a double. On his last seven shots in the Premier League, the Argentine has scored each time, proving that he is one of the best in the world at his post. If Bernardo Silva allowed his people to salt the bill (4-0, 79e), the injury of Aymeric Laporte comes tarnishing this third victory in four games of Premier League for the Skyblues.
With only Otamendi on his feet, Guardiola can cry.
Chelsea 2-2 Sheffield United
Goals: Abraham (19e, 43e) for Chelsea // Robinson (46e) and Zouma (89e, CSC) for SheffieldOhhhhhh, Tammy, Tammy.
Again double-scoring this Saturday, Tammy Abraham is the first Englishman to enter a Premier League double at Stamford Bridge since … Frank Lampard in 2010. The new Englishman's performance did not allow Blues to win as the victory over Sheffield reached out to them. However, from the beginning of the match, Abraham takes advantage of a dismal mistake from Dean Henderson (1-0, 19e). Rebelote on his second goal when he takes advantage this time of a misunderstanding between Egan and O'Connell to dig the score (2-0, 43e). The reduction of the gap a few minutes later from Robinson (2-1, 46e) does not seem to change anything. But that's not counting Kurt Zouma, who deviates in his own goal a Robinson center at the last minute, leaving three points that Tammy Abraham deserved on his own.
After Laporte's injury and Zouma's CSC, Deschamps had an excellent Saturday.

In other games, Jordan Ayew crucified his former Aston Villa team (1-0), allowing Crystal Palace to continue its walk at the foot of the podium. Leicester also continues its good start to the season by easily disposing of Bournemouth, thanks to a double of the inevitable Jamie Vardy, in all the good moves this Saturday against the Cherries (3-1).
If the match between Newcastle-Watford (1-1) did not have much more interest after the half-time, that between West Ham and Norwich became quivering when Sebastien Haller scored his third goal in a week with the Hammers. Dreadful in the area at the half hour mark, he quickly put his team on track and thus confirmed his excellent debut in the Premier League. Even Ukrainian Yarmolenko scored a goal, his third with West Ham. The London club sits in fifth place pending the derby between Arsenal and Tottenham this Sunday.
