In Division Two, Southampton, Stoke City and Aston Villa picked up wins in their opening u23 Premier League games, beating Middlesbrough, Sunderland and Norwich City respectively.

Fulham rescued a point against Manchester United, coming from behind twice to finish 2-2 at Motspur Park. Angel Gomes gave United the lead in the 28th minute before Aron Davies equalised before half-time. And when Tahith Chong’s put the Red Devils ahead on the hour mark, Robert Atkinson earned Fulham a hare of the spoils in the 79th minute.

Saints’ victory over Middlesbrough saw them take the lead in the 71st minute through Alfie Jones, before Marcus Barnes put the game to bed in injury time.

Stoke went behind against Sunderland, courtesy of a Jake Hackett in the 27th minute, but they equalised midway through the second-half through Olivier Shenton and won the game 10 minutes late when Tyrese Campbell scored.

Aston Villa’s Kelsey Mooney scored either side of half-time to beat Norwich at the Bank’s Stadium. His first goal came in the 36th minute and his last was in the 70th.
