TUESDAY AUGUST 13 2019 SPORT 31 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA Philly Union too strong KACPER Przybylko and Jack Elliott scored and the Philadelphia Union beat the Houston Dynamo 2-1 on Sunday night. Jamiro Monteiro played a high cross in the 78th minute before an attempted clearance deflected off Elliott and bounced off the crossbar with Elliott left to head the ball into an empty net. The Union have won three of their last four games. Earlier, Przybylko rolled a pass to Haris Medunjanin at the top of the area, who tapped it back to Przybylko for a firsttimer that rolled through the legs of goalkeeper Joe Willis into the net to make it 1-0 in the 18th. Christian Ramirez, in his first game for Houston after being traded from Los Angeles FC on Wednesday, tied it in the 42nd. The Dynamo have lost seven of their last eight games. Socceroos on move THE English transfer window might be closed but Socceroos may still be on the move this month after switches for Aaron Mooy and Massimo Luongo. Mooy joined national teammate Mat Ryan at Brighton and Hove Albion this week, signing on loan before a $A24.85 million move is cemented in one years time. Luongo ended a four-year tenure at Queens Park Rangers by joining fellow secondtier club Sheffield Wednesday for a cut-price $A1.9 million. Other Australians could find themselves in new club pastures with several European leagues still open for transfers and free agents. That includes free agent Mile Jedinak, scarcely-seen striker Tomi Juric and now Trent Sainsbury, who has been made surplus to requirements at PSV Eindhoven. Man U down Chelsea as season kicks off MARCUS Rashford scored twice as Manchester United made the perfect start to their Premier League season by inflicting a 4-0 defeat on Frank Lampards Chelsea. Ole Gunnar Solskjaers men were in need of a fast start to the campaign to erase memories of a terrible end to last season. Rashfords early penalty opened the scoring, but three goals in 16 second-half minutes from Anthony Martial, Rashford and debutant Daniel James sealed it. We took risks but thats the way here, youve got to go for it. Its risk and reward and today we were rewarded, said Solskjaer. Were fitter, were stronger, you can see that second half we are more than capable of lasting games. Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka also impressed at the back on their debuts after United spent 130 million ($156 million) on the pair over the summer to shore up a defence that conceded 54 Premier League goals last season. It is a great start for myself and the team. We rode our luck a bit first half but second we were much more ourselves, said 80 million signing Maguire after his first game as the worlds most expensive defender. But questions will be asked of Chelseas decision to let experienced defender David Luiz leave to join Arsenal earlier this week as the Blues struggled to contain the United counter-attacks despite dominating long spells. Lampards first team selection was a bold one as he put his faith in youth with Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount handed starts. Chelsea were banned from making new signings over the summer and Lampard also has a number of senior players out injured, but refused to make excuses. They started the better as Abraham smashed a shot from the edge of the box off the post, but the heart of Lampards defence always looked fragile.
