Gabriel Martinelli scored the first goal of a competitive and entertaining first contest at Selhurst Park. Liverpool, last season’s runners-up, failed to make a strong start on Saturday lunchtime when they drew at newly-promoted Fulham in their opener, with champions Manchester City wrapping up the weekend at West Ham the following day.
There is much expected of Tottenham, who have spent well and impressed during Antonio Conte’s first pre-season with the squad, and they brushed aside Southampton on Saturday. A few hours later, Chelsea beat Frank Lampard’s Everton thanks to a Jorginho penalty. It’s another new era at Manchester United but a familiar tale as Erik ten Hag could not prevent Brighton running out 2-1 winners at Old Trafford before Manchester City beat West Ham.
