With Everton not playing until Sunday and three of the Sky Six kicking off at 3:00 pm without live domestic TV coverage, the lunchtime excitement consisted of a competitive London area 'derby' at Craven Cottage that ended all-square against Watford.

The three Sky favourites all started strongly with first-half leads, while Burnley looked to secure their first win of the season, going 2-0 up against Bournemouth.

From watching Fulham and Watford I’d say Mitrovic is a player we need to watch closely next week, puts himself about that guy!

It's already a two-horse race this season for the title between that lot and Man City.

Chelsea have started strong but think their lack of depth in the striking department might be costly eventually for them and if Hazard hits a dip in form which he does at times.

I refuse to watch them lot.

Fantastic equalizer from Moutinho for Wolves at Old Trafford. They shoulda had 3 before Man Utd scored against the run of play.

Just another day in the pulsating Premier League!!!

Moutinho brings back memories of our chase of him in summer 2008 when old Moyesy was here, of course back then we couldn’t muster up even a relatively modest valuation.

It’s good to see him finally in the Premier League anyway, he looks a clever footballer.

It's a helluva game at the Theatre of (hopefully) Nightmares... Wolves really taking it to the hosts but Lingard just replied with a belting shot tipped over and a Lukaku header, all alone but wide... and flagged offside. Could go either way!

Leon Osman (5 Live) full of praise for Neves and Moutinho.

It’s shocking to see United having to just pump long balls into the box, while the opposition is cutting through them with slick passing moves.

Yep, Wolves are fearless today, playing the game in a manner I’d like to see us play tomorrow at Arsenal.

3 for Leicester now against Huddersfield, the man I wanted us to push for so much in summer 2017, Jamie Vardy.

Think it’s going to be a massive battle for Cardiff and Huddersfield to survive this season.

Man Utd really ramping it up in the final 10 mins, Wolves dropping deep.

Also showing the difference that quality in depth makes. Wolves were by far the better team with their first 11 out there. But once they had to go to the bench their game fell apart. They’ve had the same lineup every game to to start the season and it’s showing what a massive difference a stable first 11 makes compared to having to change the team every single week.

4-0 Burnley I didn’t see that coming with Bournemouth’s form.

Wolves gave that a right go in the last few minutes, should have won it!!

Michael. (3), come on, have a peep at them at least, I hate the bastards but if you like watching great football
then don't deny yourself, it's hard to see them like this
but that's life, go on, bite your tongue while your watching them.

Good to see Aaron Lennon playing well and enjoying his football again.

I thought the same Jim. I only saw the MOTD highlights, but what a performance from the fella. I have no idea about his personal life, but he certainly looked happy on the footy pitch

Not sure where to put this, so I'll put it here. Right now the FIFA Best Awards are finishing. No real shocks except this, the best goal last season, featuring us: Best Goal in World Football 2018

Good goal, don't get me wrong, but the best goal in all of football last year? Really?

Dave Lynch
17 Posted 24/09/2018 at 21:36:32
Seriously Steve! That was voted best goal in the world?

The mind fucking boggles.

Steve Ferns
18 Posted 24/09/2018 at 21:41:35
Yes, Dave. It says on the BBC that everyone was shocked. I think because Liverpool and Salah never won an award or made the best XI, they contrived to give him / them an award.

Interesting that the best Keeper of 2018 (Courtois) does not make the team of the Year. De Gea is in his place for that.

It was a foul! The best goal in the world?! Really??
Dave Lynch

Wouldn't argue with that, John.

That was a thousand times better than the other fella's.

There's one Blue who seems to think that the Egyptian's goal was worthy of being honoured - but surely it's a wind-up isn't it?

Wind-up?

Steve Ferns

Lawrence, this extract should give the game away:

“When Salah first picked up the ball, I wasn’t scared. After all, he’d have to get past two of the best defenders in the game, Cuco Martina (for those who have never seen him play, picture a sumptuous blend of Paolo Maldini and Cafu) and Ashley Williams – the thinking man’s Lothar Matthaus. No, when the little Egyptian was hurtling towards our goal, I was confident that he’d be easily stymied by our defensive Brains Trust – Cuc & Ash“

Agreed Steve, however, some of the responses do take his article seriously and he gets much stick for it. the author arguing that the goal was better than Van Basten's was the clincher for me.

I like James Millers comment about salah’s 7th best of the season being the best goal of the season.
