Premier League: Spurs go top of table, Manchester United break unbeaten away record; Leeds play draw at Burnley

Mason Greenwood’s late winner helped Manchester United beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 1-0 to break the record for the longest unbeaten Premier League away run while Tottenham Hotspur maintained their 100% start to the Premier League season with a 1-0 win over Watford on Sunday.

In the third match of the day, Patrick Bamford celebrated his England call-up with an 86th-minute equalizer on Sunday as Leeds United came back for a 1-1 draw at Burnley.

Greenwood snatches late win for Manchester United

Mason Greenwood’s late winner earned Manchester United a 1-0 win at wasteful Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League on Sunday, breaking the record for the longest unbeaten away run in English Football League history in the process.

Greenwood’s low strike was decisive after Wolves had missed a host of chances throughout the match as United made it 28 unbeaten on the road in the league, beating Arsenal’s record set between April 2003 and September 2004.

The home side threw everything at United early on, with Raul Jimenez and Trincao going close, but the visitors somehow clung on until halftime, without offering much as an attacking threat.

Tottenham Hotspur go top of Premier League

Tottenham is the Premier League’s last remaining team with a perfect start after Son Heung-min clinched a 1-0 victory over Watford on Sunday. It was a third successive win at the start of Nuno Espirito Santo’s first season in charge of the north London club.

The goal came in the 42nd minute after Son swung in a free-kick from the left wing and Watford goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann got it all wrong, with the ball going all the way into the far corner.

It was the South Korean’s 72nd goal on his 200th Premier League appearance for the club, helping them to maintain their 100% record under new manager Nuno Espirito Santo and lifting them to the top of the table with a perfect nine points after three games.

Bamford rescues draw for Leeds at Burnley

Patrick Bamford’s late equalizer rescued Leeds a point in a 1-1 draw at Burnley to leave both sides chasing their first Premier League win of the season. The opener from Chris Wood was the 30,000th goal scored since the start of the Premier League in 1992.

It completed a good week for the striker who, having missed out on England’s Euro 2020 campaign, was called up by Gareth Southgate for next month’s World Cup qualifiers against Hungary, Andorra and Poland.

Burnley striker Chris Wood had opened the scoring in the 61st minute, against his former club, turning in a low drive from Matt Lowton from close range after a goalmouth scramble followed a James Tarkowski header against the bar.
