Premier League: Chelsea, Tottenham, Bournemouth, Crystal Palace & Watford win

Jorginho scored on his Premier League debut for Chelsea

Chelsea opened their Premier League campaign with victory against Huddersfield, while Tottenham, Bournemouth, Crystal Palace and Watford also made winning starts.

Blues boss Maurizio Sarri gave a debut to the world’s most expensive goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga, while another summer signing, Jorginho, scored a penalty in a 3-0 away win, with Pedro and N’Golo Kante also on target.

In the day’s late kick-off, Wolves twice came from behind to draw 2-2 at home with Everton. New £50m signing Richarlison scored twice on his debut, while Phil Jagielka was sent off five minutes before half-time.

In the early start, England’s World Cup stars Harry Kane and Dele Alli started against Newcastle in Tottenham’s 2-1 victory at St James’ Park.

Spurs needed goalline technology for their opener, as replays showed Jan Vertonghen’s header had crossed the line by 9mm.

Joselu equalised for the Magpies, before Alli headed in the winner in the 18th minute.
