Liverpool’s Premier League title challenge got off to a sluggish start as the Reds were held 2-2 at newly-promoted Fulham, while Tottenham delivered on their pre-season hype by thrashing Southampton 4-1 Saturday.

An own goal by defender Rayan Ait-Nouri gave Leeds United a 2-1 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers in their opening Premier League game of the season at Elland Road.

Entering their third successive top-flight campaign, Leeds have won their first opening match since their return after striker Patrick Bamford crossed the ball to Brenden Aaronson, who seemed to have finished it off from close range.

Newcastle United made a comfortable start to the new season thanks to goals from Fabian Schar and Callum Wilson in a 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest giving the visitors an unhappy return to the Premier League after a 23-year absence.

Bournemouth made a winning return to the Premier League by comfortably beating Aston Villa 2-0 at home thanks to an early strike from Jefferson Lerma and Kieffer Moore’s towering header in the second half.

Tottenham Hotspur underlined their credentials as a team capable of a Premier League title challenge with a confident 4-1 defeat of Southampton to get their campaign up and running with Jorginho’s penalty decided the game between Chelsea and Everton which ended 1-0.
