After their team lost to Brighton on the opening day, Manchester United fans were hoping for better this time around against Brentford on Saturday.But that certainly wasn't the case as Erik ten Hag's side found itself 4-0 down within 35 minutes courtesy of goals from Josh Dasilva, Mathias Jensen, Ben Mee, and Bryan Mbeumo.The score stayed that way and the former United defender Gary Neville, now a Sky Sports pundit, described the team as a joke.I thought United would do better but they have been mauled, bullied, messed about with like you wouldn't believe, and there's nowhere to hide, he said after the match. I have been watching United for 42 years and I can't think of a moment when I have thought things have been as bad as that in the first half.The defeat saw Ten Hag become the first United manager in over 100 years to lose his opening two games in charge.Afterwards, Ten Hag accused his team of ignoring his plans.Brentford were more hungry. We conceded goals from individual mistakes, he said. You can't have a tactical plan but then put it in the bin.Just as last weekend, Manchester City and Arsenal were the two outstanding performers this time around. City swept aside newly promoted Bournemouth 4-0 on Saturday, with the pick of the goals coming from midfielder Kevin de Bruyne.The Belgian dribbled in-between two defenders before curling the ball into the net from just inside the box with the outside of his boot.Arsenal also scored four as it beat Leicester 4-2 at The Emirates the same day.Summer signing Gabriel Jesus, who signed from City, scored his first two goals for the club, while Granit Xhaka and Gabriel Martinelli were also on the scoresheet.Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard are widely considered as two of the Premier League's greatest ever midfielders and enjoyed a great rivalry during their playing days.On Saturday at Villa Park, the two met again, but this time as managers.It was Gerrard who came out on top, with his Aston Villa side beating Lampard's Everton 2-1.I think this was one of our strongest performances in terms of control and positional play. We looked really dangerous, the former Liverpool midfielder said after his side's win.Lampard said he believes Everton deserved at least a draw.I thought there was some good and bad in the performance, he said. It was a pretty even game other than the transition goals that we gave away.Elsewhere over the weekend, Leeds United and Southampton drew 2-2; Wolverhampton Wanderers and Fulham and Brighton and Newcastle saw out goalless draws; and Nottingham Forest beat West Ham United 1-0.
