CVManchester City won their first win of the season. After last week’s defeat to Tottenham Hotspur, there has now been a knockout against Norwich City. Liverpool stayed clear, while Anwar El Ghazi was important to Aston Villa.
Manchester City will still have to dispense with Kevin De Bruyne and John Stones, among others, but Norwich turns out to be no match without these powerful winners. Tim Kroll’s unfortunate own goal, which the Orange goalkeeper couldn’t do much about, soon meant a 1-0 win. Record signing Jack Grealish doubled the score with his first goal for City, as Nathan Ake remained on the bench.
After the break, Pep Guardiola’s team scored a big win. Aymeric Laporte, substitutes Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez made the difference and left Norwich waiting for the first point after two games.
Aston Villa showed against Newcastle United even without the departure of Grealish to win. Asset Danny Ings opened the recording and more than an hour later Anwar El-Ghazi put an end to all the uncertainty. The left winger took a flawless penalty against the ropes and is hopeful that national coach Louis van Gaal is watching as well, as Agasid played a strong game.
With Pascal Struic at the base, Leeds United earned a point at home against Everton manager Marcel Brands. Dominic Calvert-Lewin (penalty kick) and Demarai Gray gave Everton the lead twice, but goals from Mateusz Klich (former PEC Zwolle and FC Utrecht) and Ravenha made it 2-2. Crescencio Summerville watched the match on behalf of Leeds from the bench.
Crystal Palace did not pass the newly promoted Brentford at home: 0-0. Jairo Redwald remained on the bench, just as Halil Dervisoglu did not get time to play with the doctoral student.
Simple Liverpool vs Burnley
Liverpool also did nothing wrong in the second league game of the season. Burnley were easily defeated 2-0 at home. Virgil van Dijk played the whole match.
The captain of the Dutch national team witnessed the progress of Liverpool in the eighteenth minute. Diogo Jota’s cross headed by Konstantinos Tsimikas (formerly Willem II) against the ropes. After a few minutes, Mohamed Salah appeared to double the score, but after good work from Harvey Elliott, the Egyptian was sidelined. The VAR therefore rejected his goal.
Burnley, where Eric Peters sat on the bench, could hardly say anything against Liverpool. So Sadio Mane 2-0 in the 69th minute was right. The Senegalese hit after a quick attack on a Trent Alexander-Arnold pass. Thus, the match was decided, and substitute Peters was unable to make the difference for Burnley in the last ten minutes.
Liverpool are now off to an excellent start to the new season. After winning two games, the goal difference with five goals and zero against them is also very strong. Burnley is still waiting for the first point.
