Premier League round-up: Chelsea maintain 100% win record, West Ham maintain 100% loss record

Here’s what happened in the 3pm kick-offs in the Premier League on Saturday, September 1…

Brighton 2-2 Fulham

Glenn Murray scored twice as Brighton fought back from 2-0 down to draw with Fulham at the Amex.

Slavisa Jokanovic’s side went ahead through Andre Schurrle and Aleksandar Mitrovic, with Pascal Gross missing a penalty for the Seagulls. Murray converted Anthony Knockaert’s pass and finished his team’s second penalty of the afternoon to earn a point.

Chelsea 2-0 Bournemouth

Chelsea left it late to break down a stubborn Bournemouth, ultimately emerging 2-0 victors at Stamford Bridge. Pedro and Eden Hazard struck in the final 20 minutes of the match to break Cherries hearts and give the Blues their fourth consecutive win at the start of the new Premier League season.

Crystal Palace 0-2 Southampton

Southampton secured their first win of the new Premier League season with a 2-0 triumph at Crystal Palace. Danny Ings and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg scored as the Saints took an important three points at Selhurst Park.

Everton 1-1 Huddersfield

Everton are still unbeaten in the 2018/19 season after coming from behind to draw with Huddersfield at Goodison Park. Philip Billing gave the Terriers a shock first-half lead, though it was quickly answered by Dominic Calvert-Lewin and the match saw no further goals.

West Ham 0-1 Wolves

Adama Traore struck deep into injury time to give Wolverhampton Wanderers a deserved win over West Ham United at the London Stadium.

The game, which marked John Motson’s return to commentary duty for talkSPORT 2, sparked into life in the second half as both teams threw caution to the wind. The lightning-fast Traore broke from deep to finish past Lukasz Fabianski in the last-minute of stoppage time, condemning the Hammers their fourth straight defeat at the start of the season.

Leicester 1-2 Liverpool (12:30pm kick-off)

Liverpool survived a goalkeeping shocker from Alisson and maintained their 100% record in the Premier League with a 2-1 win at Leicester on Saturday. The Reds ultimately emerged victorious at the King Power Stadium as goals from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino rendered their ‘keeper’s second half mistake irrelevant.

Under pressure from the Foxes’ forwards, Virgil van Dijk played a poor pass back to Alisson who opted to try and take Kelechi Iheanacho on with his feet before losing the ball and conceding to Rachid Ghezzal as a result.
