Liverpool beat Bournemouth
On the second day of the Premier League, Liverpool beat Bournemouth 3-1. At Anfield Road, the Reds fell behind early on, but despite a red card from signing Alexis Mac Allister, they put the situation right.
The home team got off to a slow start. First, the VAR ruined a very early Bournemouth party, but it was right after that. Trent Alexander-Arnold lost the ball in the back, Antoine Semenyo (3.) gratefully accepted the gift and shot in from the corner. Virgil van Dijk almost corrected his fellow defender’s mistake a few minutes later, but his header hit the crossbar. Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson was also fumbling in the back and choked when playing football, but got away well with yellow.
Liverpool had to wake up afterwards and they did. Luis Diaz (28.) held the ball high with his back to goal and put the ball nicely behind him in goal. Ten minutes before the break, Mohamed Salah put things in order in two times on a penalty kick. After the break, the whole of Anfield was shocked by a red card from Mac Allister (58.). Diogo Jota (62.) was not affected by this and tapped Dominik Szoboszlai’s rebound against the nets.
Leicester, with Wout Faes in the starting line-up, won again for the third week in a row (2-1). At home, the Foxes took the lead through Wanya Marcal-Madivadua (36.), but Cardiff was able to score against it quite quickly through Aaron Ramsey (45 + 1.). However, the venom was in the tail at King Power Stadium, when brand new signing Cesare Casadei (90+2.) sent the Foxes into ecstasy. Afterwards, Cardiff defender Mahlon Romeo (90+6.) ran into his second yellow card. Timothy Castagne, who has been eyeing a transfer all summer, was not in the Leicester squad.
