Folarin Balogun (84) saved the honor before Suarez (90th + 4) set the mark. Thomas Foket and Maxime Busi were not part of the visiting group.

Erik ten Hag, the new coach of the ‘Red Devils’ then launched Cristiano Ronaldo (53rd) and Manchester reduced the score via an own goal from Alexis Mac Allister (68th) but Brighton resisted to take the three points.
Meanwhile, Timothy Castagne netted Belgium’s first Premier League goal of the season in Leicester’s 2-2 draw against Brentford.

Manchester City, assisted by De Bruyne, start with win at West Ham
Manchester City started their 2022-23 Premier League season with a 0-2 win at West Ham. Holder with the Cityzens, Kevin De Bruyne was replaced in the 88th minute after offering an assist to Erling Haaland, author of a double for his debut. Dominating, Manchester City had to wait until the end of the first period to find the opening on a penalty caused by Erling Haaland, mowed down by Alphonse Aréola. The Norwegian striker, Cityzens’ flagship rookie this summer, did himself justice to score his first goal with City (36th).
In the second half, Haaland showed that his automatisms with Kevin De Bruyne are already in place. Launched in depth by ‘KDB’, the Norwegian slipped the ball between the legs of Areola (65th). SEE HAALAND’S DOUBLE AND DE BRUYNE’S AMAZING ASSIST HERE!
