Brighton’s brains over brawn, while Man City scare us all

The Premier League is back and so are the quartet of Jimbo, Carl Anka, Daniel Storey and Sasha Goryunov on the Totally Football Show.

Man City stroll to an opening day victory at the London Stadium. Who can stop the latent threat of Erling Haaland? And have Liverpool already given City an advantage they won’t claw back?

Brighton claim their first ever win at Old Trafford in classy style. We sing the Seagulls’ praises and ask why do United keep signing centre-backs?

Elsewhere, William Saliba owns his Premier League debut and Dejan Kulusevski makes all the top clubs in Europe wonder what they missed out on.

Plus Scott Parker’s suit, which game was unwatchable and which player resembled a Victorian child ghost?
