Manchester United kicked the Premier League season off with a win over Leicester City, and there were six more matches played overnight.‘
Unfortunately Mat Ryan’s Brighton and Aaron Mooy’s Huddersfield were both on the end of shutout losses.
Newcastle 1 – 2 Tottenham
Huddersfield 0 – 3 Chelsea
Bournemouth 2 – 0 Cardiff
Watford 2 – 0 Brighton
Fulham 0 – 2 Crystal Palace
Wolves 2 – 2 Everton
Richarlison: The new man scored twice in Everton’s 2-2 draw with Wolves.
The Atmosphere in Wolverhampton: Wolves are a huge club and the fanfare of opening day at Molineux was nothing short of spectacular.
What a welcome. What an atmosphere.

Aussies: Tough night for both Aaron Mooy and Mat Ryan, whose teams lost by a combined score of 5-0.
DW: “its disappointing, of course, and in the end it’s a deserved defeat for us.

Brighton’s defence: Could be a long season for Mat Ryan if Brighton’s defence is going to be cut apart like that – and we’re talking Watford, not Man City or Spurs.
Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Spurs: Three wins for three London clubs, though Tottenham tottered on the edge a couple of times and you could say they were fortunate to come away with all three points.

Fulham: They started slowly last season in the Championship and a 2-0 home loss to Crystal Palace isn’t a great Premier League opener.
Roberto Pereyra: Scored a brace to lead Watford to a comprehensive 2-0 home win over Brighton.
FT | #watfordfc 2-0 Brighton

Cardiff City: The Bluebirds are short-priced favourites to be relegated and a first up 2-0 loss to Bournemouth won’t exactly instill confidence in supporters.
