It was Will Hughes’ early goal that helped the visitors secure their first Premier League point of the season, as a Fabian Schar equaliser denied them victory.

At the Etihad Stadium, champions Manchester City thrashed Brighton 4-0, with a double from Sergio Aguero and a goal each from Kevin de Bruyne and Bernardo Silva.

Super Eagles defender, Leon Balogun was absent for Brighton.

At Stamford Bridge, Tammy Abraham’s brace was not enough to hand Chelsea victory at home as Sheffield United held them to a 2-2 draw.
