Liverpool and Fulham draw, Spurs and Chelsea win




Liverpool came from behind twice to force a 2-2 draw at promoted Fulham, with new signing Darwin Nunez coming off the bench to score one and score another.

Aleksandar Mitrovic gave Fulham the lead twice at Craven Cottage on Saturday as Marco Silva’s side threatened a major upset, but Nunez showed why Liverpool had spent so much on the Uruguay forward.

Nunez first met a low cross from Mohamed Salah with a deft backheel into the top of the net to make it 1-1 in the 64th minute, then helped his Egyptian team-mate to score the second equalizer in the 81st.

Nunez tried to control a high cross in the box but the ball fell in the way of Salah, who had a simple tap-in.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson came close to winning in injury time when his long-range curling shot hit the crossbar.

Mitrovic headed the opening goal in the first half, rising high at the far post to meet a cross from the right. He also converted a penalty after being knocked down by Virgil van Dijk.

Tottenham responded superbly as they fell behind at home to a James Ward-Prowse opener against Southampton and secured a 4-1 victory.

Ryan Sessegnon and Eric Dier put Spurs ahead at half-time and Southampton defender Mohammed Salibu scored a comical own goal as he tried to clear the ball from the line in the 61st minute.

Dejan Kulusevski capped an outstanding performance by scoring the fourth two minutes later.

Newcastle beat newcomers Nottingham Forest 2-0 after Fabian Schar finally broke the deadlock with a shot into the top corner from just outside the box in the 58th minute. Callum Wilson added the second.

There was a distinct American flavor to Leeds United’s 2-1 home win over Wolverhampton.

United States international Brenden Aaronson played a key role in the winning goal as he rushed to meet a cross from Patrick Bamford, although it was credited as an own goal by defender Rayan Ait-Nouri .

Aaronson and fellow USA international Tyler Adams made their first start for Leeds, led by USA coach Jesse Marsch. Daniel Podence had given Wolves the lead in the sixth minute.

Promoted Bournemouth beat Aston Villa 2-0 thanks to goals from Jefferson Lerma and Kieffer Moore.

A first-half penalty from Italian midfielder Jorginho was enough to give Chelsea a 1-0 victory at Everton in the evening’s kick-off.

Chelsea scored the home goal from 13 corners in the first half and broke the deadlock when Jorginho converted from the spot after Ben Chilwell was fouled.

A brilliant save from Edouard Mendy denied Abdoulaye Doucoure early in the second half, but it was as good as it gets for a disappointing Everton side.
