Manchester United suffered their first defeat of the season with a shock 2-1 loss at promoted Huddersfield Town on Saturday, leaving them trailing Premier League leaders Manchester City by five points.

Huddersfield took the lead in the 28th minute when Australian midfielder Aaron Mooy robbed Juan Mata in midfield, broke forward, slipped the ball to Tom Ince and then fired home after Ince's shot was blocked by David De Gea.

United lost defender Phil Jones to injury and his replacement Victor Lindelof was to blame for Huddersfield's second when he completely misjudged a long clearance from keeper Jonas Lossl, allowing Belgian Laurent Depoitre to round De Gea and slot home.

Jose Mourinho's side pulled one back with 12 minutes remaining, Marcus Rashford meeting a Romelu Lukaku cross with a firm header at the back post but, despite late pressure, the Yorkshire side held on for a famous victory.
