Premier League takeaways: Liverpool is held in the hands of Fulham, Americans shine for Leeds, Tottenham dominate

After Arsenal started to get the Premier League back underway on Friday night, with the 2-0 win over Crystal the opening day of action on Saturday was full of all the excitement that you can ever imagine. The day began on an unsavory note, followed by Americans taking on a full-on assault and a defender scoring a fantastic goal and, finally it’s possible there’s a chance that, the less you describe the end of the game the more you can learn from it. Everton and Chelsea experienced a gruelling winning 1-0 in Thomas Tuchel’s squad. Let’s review the lessons learned.

Liverpool have been in dire need of Nunez’s help to save one point

The Premier League got back underway in the normal way on Saturday and the draw was 2-3 in the game between Fulham and Liverpool at Craven Cottage. Nunez was active during his full debut, scoring two goals and assisting Mohamed Salah on the other side however it was a mistake of Virgil van Dijk that would be costly for him.

Jurgen Klopp’s squad persevered to get going but It was their hosts, who had just been promoted to the first team who scored the opener through Aleksandar Mitchellrovic’s scoring. The first part of a double substitution by Liverpool was to witness Darwin Nunez make his debut and the Uruguayan did not take long to bring Liverpool back to level. Reds back to a level. The game was just 10 minutes long before Mitrovic added another goal from the penalty spot and the hosts were at risk to lose. Mitrovic lost the ball, however his penalty was award and confirmed after an appeal made by the VAR.

Nunez was present to help in the closing moments of the game , when the Spaniard set his sights on Mo Salah to level and keep his record of the opening day , scoring in every game played by Liverpool. In the final this was a significant victory for Klopp’s team since Fulham defeated them on several occasions. Marco Silva’s Cottagers are inspired by their efforts. With the majority of their new signings being on the bench since the beginning, the result was an the perfect way to kick off the season. It’s also a good start to the season.

In the wake of the surprising outcome, it’s possible Jurgen Klopp has to make some changes going ahead.

Chelsea was saved through Abdoulaye Docoure

A poor penalty by Abdoulaye D’Courre was the key factor in how Chelsea defeated Everton 1-1 on the opening morning. Frank Lampard’s side defended extremely well, despite having a shortage of forwards, they were able to stop Chelsea as Chelsea Blues had a difficult time to start their campaign. Everton were struck with another injury in the last 18 minutes in which Ben Godfrey left the match on a stretcher due to an extended period. Given being injured and was wearing the leg in a strap that manner it is, the situation definitely not appearing to be in good shape. He was substituted later by Mason Holgate.

The teams did not have a true number nine however , it was Everton who did better than this as Anthony Gordon led the attack. Everton had the capability of creating opportunities in the third attack, however, the end result did not exist. Ben Chilwell received a penalty before the final whistle of the first period when Doucoure hit his shirt with both hands while the ball fell in the penalty box. Jorginho was not in a hurry as he smashed it into the net to give Chelsea the advantage.

Second half just like the first , however Everton is the happier team with the outcome. Amadou Onana was in the stands to watch and will be in the midfield of Everton midfield sooner than later, as they have signed agreements with Lille but to Chelsea playing with Armando Broja on the team, they didn’t manage to secure a full 9. Raheem Sterling was brought in to fill the position, but his performance is better as a winger and despite his excellent performance in the box.

He stood out with Kalidou Koulibaly while the pair made debuts the pitch on Saturday, but the other players didn’t impress as much as the two. Nathan Patterson also provided a fantastic chance for Dele Alli as he entered but Dele didn’t know how to manage the ball in the box, and he didn’t take his chance. A lot of work has to be done by both teams during a match that ran nearly 110 minutes due to the many stops that occur in each half.

Aston Villa roll over in a worrying way against Bournemouth

Bournemouth recorded three unexpected scores on the Premier League opening day with the victory 2-0 over a lackluster Aston Villa side at Vitality Stadium. The Cherries won in the third minute after Jefferson Lerma fired home after Marcus Tavernier’s cross was sent downwards by Lloyd Kelly while Lucas Digne was removed from the field in Villa.

Bournemouth could have scored two goals after the break in the event that Kieffer Moore had been able to match Adam Smith’s low kick following Dominic Solanke’s pass in. In the final, the score was two after the Wales international scored in the result of an Kelly cross in the ten minutes of the final whistle for Scott Parker the ideal start to the new season , and Steven Gerrard, a nightmare.

Villa weren’t at the highest level and they were rarely in danger . Danny Ings, John McGinn and Boubacar Kamara being the closest, but not ever challenging the opposition. As Aston Villa were able to score 15 shots, and had a third the possession in their game, they scored just 0.66 anticipated scores. This is not an excellent total score. The next game for Bournemouth are current champions Manchester City while Villa are playing at home against Everton and much more is to come from an amazing summer window of signings.

Newcastle strike goal during the game in the match against Nottingham Forest

A great performance from Dean Henderson, the match did not go completely out of hand, however Ryan Yates was missed as Steve Cooper’s side struggled to maintain their place in midfield. This was an extremely difficult match for them. Tricky Trees only took five shots, and were the only team promoted who didn’t score a goal during the match. Brennan Johnson was isolated in his 20 minutes playing as Newcastle was on. The Magpies were able to score 20 shots as well as Callum Wilson and Fabian Schar scored goals. Schar’s game was a score.
