All the goals came in the first 18 minutes when Joselu canceled Jan Vertonghen for Tottenham before Dele Alli headed for the winner. While Alli was at a disadvantage, the English World Cup semi-finalist Harry Kane suffered frustration ahead of the goal at St. James & Park. The attacker, who was the leading scorer in the tournament in Russia, failed to score a Premier League goal in August at 14 attempts.Crystal Palace 2, Fulham 0: Palace taught Fulham a painful lesson on the return of his London rival in the Premier League. After absorbing much of Fulham's pressure, Palace punished rare errors of intensity and concentration to score towards the end of each half through Jeffrey Schlupp and then Wilfried Zaha. There was still encouragement for the team promoted by Slavisa Jokanovic in the way she often outdid guests at Craven Cottage on the banks of the Thames. After spending more than $ 128 million in the summer transfer window, Jokanovic delivered his full debut to six new signings. However, four minutes before the interval, against the final race, Palace took the lead. Andros Townsend swapped passages with Patrick van Aanholt, whose ball had sent Schlupp to the center and allowed the midfielder to turn and from the first post to send an explosive conclusion in the upper left corner, past goalkeeper Fabri's goal.

Leighton Baines kicked a left footed kick into the penalty area and Willy Boly attempted to hit a wall of players. When the ball went down, Richarlison was available to finish from close range. Bournemouth 2 Cardiff 0: Cardiff has made a poor return to the Premier League. Bournemouth's Ryan Fraser converted from close range to 24th minute before Callum Wilson set a tight race – French from home in injury time. Wilson also had a penalty in the first half saved by Neil Etheridge. Woolford 2, Brighton 0 : Roberto Pereyra started the season with a double while Watford beats Brighton. The Argentinian midfielder scored with a volley and a curling shot like Brighton, who spent more than $ 70 million out of 10 new players in the off season, started disappointingly. Wattford was at the top for most of the game and he broke the 35th minute when Pereyra did not score and met the corner of Jose Holebas with an impressive volley. Pereyra took advantage of the weakest defense from Brighton shortly after first time when he was again deployed by Holebas. He collected a pass and passed the new Brighton by signing Bernardo before bending his shot from goalkeeper Mathew Ryan from a narrow angle. SPORTS ACTION AND DECELERATION DELIVERED TO YOUR INBOX. .
