Liverpool’s Premier League starts with a half misstep. The Reds, fresh winners of the Community Shield, do not go beyond 2-2 in the new Craven Cottage against the newly promoted Fulham and must postpone the appointment with the first victory in the English championship. The hosts start much better and with the pressing take advantage of the errors coming out of Klopp’s men, which confirms the team that beat City 3-1 at the King Power Stadium with the exception of the return between the posts of Alisson. The Cottagers rehearse for the advantage and, after a goal canceled by Luis Diaz for Robertson’s offside, Fulham pass: cross from the right by Tete and a winning header by Mitrovic, who signs the 1-0 in the 32nd minute . Klopp’s men immediately seek the equalizer, touched by Luis Diaz who hits the post with a left in the area from an angled position. In the second half, Klopp immediately drops the ace Darwin Núñez, but the hosts devour the doubling with the wood hit by Kebano. The former Benfica misses two occasions, but the third is the winning one: Salah’s assist from the right and the Uruguayan’s back heel for the 1-1 in the 64th minute. At the moment when the comeback of Klopp’s team seems to be able to materialize, Fulham returns to the advantage: in the 72nd minute, Van Dijk spreads Mitrovic in the area, who from the spot gives him 2-1 scoring his personal brace. Liverpool, however, reacts and 8 minutes later finds the 2-2 with the tap-in from a few steps from Salah. In the recovery, Henderson hits the crossbar touching the sensational comeback, but the final forcing is not enough: immediately a half misstep for Liverpool, who slips to -2 from Arsenal. Excellent return to the Premier League, however, for Fulham.

Antonio Conte’s Tottenham recover a game that started uphill for the Spurs, winning 4-1 against Southampton in their Premier League debut. After 13 ‘the hosts are at a disadvantage: to score the goal for the Saints is Ward-Prowse. Tottenham reacts and, on 22 ‘, finds a draw with Sessegnon. Eric Dier doubles and leads the London team with a perfect entry from free kick action in the 32nd minute. At the beginning of the second half the hosts found the net, but Sessegnon’s goal was canceled for offside. At 62 ‘the own goal by Salisu puts the race for the Spurs downhill. After less than a minute, here is poker: Kulusevski with a shot around the corner beats the opposing goalkeeper.

Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea debuts against Everton, and is immediately a challenge to the great former Frank Lampard in the official debut of Raheem Sterling, central reference in the 3-4-2-1 of the Blues with Havertz and Mount in support. The first occasion bears the signature of the German, but the start of the match is characterized by the bad injury that occurred to Godfrey, who came out on a stretcher and with the oxygen mask after an unnatural twist of the ankle: another tile for the Toffees, already free of Calvert-Lewin and other key elements. He resumed after nine minutes of stoppage and Chelsea came close to scoring: Pickford avoids Mount’s goal with a great intervention, after five consecutive corners for the Blues. Everton, albeit bandaged, responds in kind: Tarkowski’s head and Mendy’s champion saves to deflect for a corner. The Londoners pushed and saw Sterling’s advantage nullify (offside), but passed in the recovery-monstre: Doucouré knocked out Chilwell and was a penalty, converted by Jorginho in the 53rd minute. The start of the second half sees Everton’s reaction of pride in the restart: Demarai Gray engages Mendy and the Blues suffer in defense. As the minutes passed, however, the situation stabilized and Chelsea managed to control the match. In the final Sterling almost doubled, then the challenge was suspended due to a problem that occurred to a spectator: not even the long recovery, over ten minutes, changes the result. Chelsea wins 1-0 and responds to Arsenal and Tottenham: London is leading the Premier League.

Two goals in the second half gave Newcastle three points in their debut match against Nottingham Forest. Magpies who make the game in the first half, dominating the playing field without being able to find the way to the goal, however. At the beginning of the second half it was Newcastle who forced Cooper’s team to huddle in their own half. The Garibaldi Reds manage, however, to resist the forcing of the hosts. To unlock the match in the 59th minute is Fabian Schar, who leads Howe’s team forward after an hour of domination. The goal that closes the game in favor of the Magpies is signed by Wilson in the 74th minute.

It ends 2-1 between Leeds and Wolverhampton: a victory that delivers the three points to the Whites on this first day of the Premier League.

In the second half the guests look for the goal with a continuous pressure, but Leeds are well put on the field. In the best moment of Wolverhampton it is therefore the hosts who take the lead definitively: Aaronson scores the 2-1 goal.

Bournemouth win on their Premier League debut by beating Aston Villa 2-0 at home. Scott Parker’s men show intense play and, after just three minutes, find the net of advantage with Jefferson Lerna.
