Leicester are also the first reigning champions to lose their first match of the season, since Arsenal lost 4-1 to United in the 1989-90 season.

Saturday’s clash at KCOM Stadium was the eighth occasion that a newly-promoted side had played the reigning champions on the opening matchday of a Premier League season.

Nevertheless, Hull City hold the recognition of being the first promoted side that won.
