HIGHLIGHTS OF THE CLOCK GAME: Newcastle United 1, Tottenham 2 || Bournemouth 2, Cardiff City 0 || Fulham 0, Crystal Palace 2 || Huddersfield Town 0, Chelsea 3 || Watford 2, Brighton & Hove Albion 0 || Wolves 2, Everton 2
Chelsea was the most spent of the league in the summer transfer window. Tottenham was the only top team to fail to sign, but still opened with a 2-1 victory in Newcastle.
All goals came in the first 18 minutes when Joselu canceled Jan Vertonghen for Tottenham before Dele Alli headed for the winner.
While Alli was on goal, the British World Cup semi-finalist Harry Kane suffered frustration ahead of the goal at St. James & Park. The attacker, who was the leading scorer of the tournament in Russia, failed to score a Premier League goal in August at 14 attempts.

After spending more than $ 250 million on new players since they got the promotion, the newcomers only picked up one point between them. Cardiff lost 2-0 to Bournemouth and Fulham fell to the same score at Crystal Palace.
But Wolverhampton scored a point in an exciting 2-2 draw with Everton. Many things have changed in the central team of England since it was the last of the elite six years ago, with the Chinese property that has invested a lot and using its business relationships with the agent of Cristiano Ronaldo to attract players.
Two of Jorge Mendes' clients worked for the Wolves when they came twice from behind: Ruben Neves and Raul Jimenez.
Neves has canceled Richarlison's debut goal for Everton directly from a free kick after Phil Jagielka was sent off for a dangerous obstacle challenge over Diogo Jota. Even with 10 men, the Brazilian striker Richarlison recovered Everton's lead in the second half, but Neves made a cross cross headed by Jimenez to re-establish the tie.
The Brighton champion, Manchester City, but an outlay of over $ 70 million out of 10 new players could not prevent Watford from beating the south-coast side 2-0 after a double by Roberto Pereyra.
It was post-Arsene Wenger starts at the Emirates Stadium. Unai Emery takes command of Arsenal for the first time in the Premier League against defending champion Manchester City. Liverpool, the biggest off-season player in the league, hosts West Ham and Burnley, who travel to Southampton.
