Premier League matchday 1 – Schär leads Newcastle to victory – «Reds» stumble at the start – Sport


Fabian Schär helped his club win over Nottingham in a remarkable way. Co-favorite Liverpool only plays 2-2 at Fulham.

Fabian Schär gave Newcastle United their opening win against Nottingham Forest not with a header, but with a powerful long-range shot via the inside of the post. The Swiss goal after just under an hour should be groundbreaking in a balanced duel with the promoted team.

His teammate Callum Wilson was also inspired by Schär’s beautiful goal. In the 78th minute, he unsustainably deflected a pass from the baseline in the opposite direction with his outside instep. With a 2-0 win, the «Magpies» made a successful start to the new Premier League season.

Mitrovic shocks Liverpool twice

Liverpool, on the other hand, had more trouble with a promoted team when they played in Fulham. Captain Jordan Henderson almost gave the Reds the starting win in the 94th minute, but his long-range shot hit the bar.

Last season’s runner-up in London had to settle for a 2-2 draw. The favorite hadn’t gotten up to speed for a long time. Aleksandar Mitrovic gave the promoted team the lead twice (32’/72′), the 2-1 was preceded by a disputed penalty decision.

Liverpool got into the game early in the second half after new signing Darwin Nuñez came on and equalized twice. Nuñez hit the back heel to make it 1-1 (64′), Mohamed Salah made it 2-2 on a pass from the Uruguayan.

Tottenham turns game against “Saints”

Tottenham Hotspur, on the other hand, was able to avert a false start. The Lillywhites celebrated a 4-1 home win against Southampton. The north Londoners only fell behind through “Saints” veteran James Ward-Prowse (12th), but thanks to goals from Ryan Sessegnon and Eric Dyer they turned the game around before half-time. In the second half, the capitals scored two more goals in what is now a one-sided game.

Tottenham’s city rivals Chelsea also had a successful start to the season. The “Blues” won 1-0 at Everton thanks to a penalty by Jorginho in the 9th minute (!) of added time in the first half. Due to a serious knee injury by “Toffees” actor Ben Godfrey in the 10th minute, there had been a long interruption before.
