But the summer’s flagship rookie, Nuez, enters the second period, made the difference by gallising a good heel (64th) before offering the second but Salah (80th). A disappointing but ultimately flattering score for the vice-champion of Europe and England.

2. Darwin Nuez enjoys his first Premier League goal! Entering the 51st minute in place of Firmino, Darwin Nuez only needed 13 minutes to score his first Premier League goal in the draw between Liverpool and Fulham (2-2). On a cross from Salah from the right, the new Reds striker took the ball from a Madjer! A great way for the former Benfica player to start in the new adventure of the English championship.

7. Jorginho kicks off Chelsea’s season with a bang. If Liverpool missed out on their league debut, Chelsea won without shining on the lawn of Everton (1-0). Lacking inspiration for the great first of rookies Koulibaly and Sterling, the London club took advantage of a penalty converted by Jorginho (45th + 9) to win. In the end, the new team of Cucurella, author of an interesting entry during the last quarter of an hour, will have suffered but won to take 6th place in the standings.

In the second half, Lenglet’s teammates, who entered at the end of the game, took advantage of a goal against his side from Salisu (60th) to widen the gap, before Kulusevski took part in the celebration (63rd). With this first success as big as it deserves, Tottenham temporarily takes the lead in the English championship.

After a defeat against Dijon (1-2), ASSE conceded a home draw against Nmes (1-1), during the second day of the championship. The Nmois had opened the scoring thanks to a goal from Thomasen (32nd), but Krasso gallise on penalty just before the break for the Greens of Laurent Batlles (45th), who remain bottom of the standings with -2 points. The Crocos get their first point.

11. A but superb in L2! We are only the 2nd day and yet, Ligue 2 is already perhaps holding its most beautiful but of the season! During the winning match by Guingamp on the field of Laval (2-1), Livolant offered an exceptional achievement! 35 meters from the Laval goal, the Guingamp captain sent a powerful volley into the top corner. Wonderful !
