Crystal Palace stunned Manchester United at Old Trafford to record their first victory over the Red Devils in the Premier League era.

Jordan Ayew opened the scoring for the visitors, and it seemed the Eagles would be making history when Marcus Rashford wasted the chance to equalise by smashing a penalty off the post.

But when Daniel James popped up in the dying stages to make it 1-1 with his second goal since his summer transfer to the Red Devils, it appeared United had rescued a point.

Patrick van Aanholt did not get the memo, however, as he broke into the United half and fired past David de Gea to secure Palace an excellent three points.

West Ham’s 3-1 defeat of Watford made it three successive defeats for Javi Gracia’s side.

Sebastien Haller netted twice in the second half to fire the Hammers to victory after Andre Gray cancelled out Mark Noble’s early penalty.

Moussa Djenepo scored a stunning first goal for Southampton in their 2-0 win at Brighton.

The hosts were reduced to 10 men inside the first half-hour as Florin Andone was dismissed for a disgusting challenge, with Djenepo and Nathan Redmond netting for Saints after the break.

Leicester beat Sheffield United 2-1 to claim their first win of the season.

Boyhood Sheffield Wednesday fan Jamie Vardy and Foxes starlet Harvey Barnes scored either side of Oli McBurnie’s equaliser to maintain Leicester’s unbeaten start to the campaign.
