Description:
------------
When using PHP date function for finding the first Monday, Tuesday etc, if the particular day is first of that month , it will return very next result

For example,

date("Y-m-d", strtotime("first monday 2019-07"));
Actually first Monday of July 2019 is 2019-07-01, but when we run this code its returning result as 2019-07-08

this is consistent with 
> echo date("Y-m-d", strtotime("first day",strtotime("2019-07-01")));
which outputs 2019-07-02

however `date -d 'first monday 2019-07-01` correctly outputs Mon 01 Jul - so I'm not sure if this is a bug

Assigning to Derick as he's the maintainer of the DateTime lib (as far as I know)

this might be a duplicate of bug #77941
