Watford and Southampton register draws

Brighton and Hove Albion's wait for a Premier League win continued as 10-man Watford battled to a 0-0 draw at Vicarage Road, while Huddersfield Town and Southampton both remain unbeaten after fighting out a goalless draw.

Brighton and Hove Albion failed to make Miguel Britos pay for his moment of madness as it was held to a 0-0 draw at 10-man Watford.

Britos was given his marching orders by referee Graham Scott for an ugly, flying tackle on Anthony Knockaert in the 24th minute at Vicarage Road.

The defender's indiscretion left Marco Silva's men playing a man down for over an hour and Brighton, who had already hit the post through Knockaert, struck the woodwork for a second time shortly before the break.

Watford – who did not have a shot on target – was under the cosh for much of the second half and Tomer Hemed went close to making the breakthrough, but for all its pressure Brighton failed to find the crucial goal.

Chris Hughton's men consequently had to settle for a first Premier League point, although their wait for a top-flight goal this season continues, while Watford has five points from its opening three games.

Huddersfield Town 0 Southampton 0: Terriers fail to make chances pay

Huddersfield Town was left to rue a host of missed opportunities as Southampton survived a first-half onslaught to earn a 0-0 draw on Saturday at the John Smith's Stadium.

Elias Kachunga, Rajiv van La Parra and Steve Mounie were all guilty of wasting chances as the Terriers, who moved top for a few hours at least as Manchester United face Leicester City in the late game, failed to convert its dominance into a third straight Premier League victory.

Hosts Huddersfield, trailing only Manchester United after two matches on their top-flight return, was kept at bay by Saints goalkeeper Fraser Forster and Mauricio Pellegrino's side improved after the interval, gaining a foothold in midfield and frustrating their newly-promoted opposition.

The stalemate means both sides remain unbeaten after their first three matches, although David Wagner will take greater positives from another performance in which his side looked at home in the Premier League.
