Manchester giants top the table after week two
United got week two of the league underway with a 2-0 win over Southampton at Old Trafford.
JOHANNESBURG - Manchester City and Manchester United have continued their perfect starts to the 2016/2017 English Premier League season with two wins apiece, scoring a combined total of 11 goals and conceding three between them.
United got week two of the league underway with a 2-0 win over Southampton at Old Trafford, Zlatan Ibrahimovic showing his class again by netting both goals for the Red Devils.
Ibrahimovic put his side in the lead with a towering header in the first half and then sealed the deal from the penalty spot in the second half.
City had a better day on Saturday as they put four goals past Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium with goals from talisman Sergio Aguero and another two from Nolito - who came off the bench in the second half.
There were also wins for Chelsea, Everton and Tottenham Hotspur, while the top two teams from last season, Leicester City and Arsenal played out to a goalless draw at Leicester's King Power Stadium.
Meanwhile, Liverpool failed to build on their great win over the Gunners the previous week, as they suffered a shock 2-0 loss to Burnley, the first win for Sean Dyche's men and also the first time that the team scored against the Reds in the Premier League.
