Harry Kane, who had been the subject of a rumor, had to be helped off the pitch as an injury meant he was unable to finish the game.
Chelsean fresh purchase Romelu Lukaku thanked for the opening lineup spot and nailed the first full hit of the match to Arsenal’s net in the London local game. Lukaku wasn’t fit in the opening round yet, but showed glimpses of his danger on Sunday.
Chelsea eventually won 2-0 and, like local rival Tottenham, has won both matches of the season. Arsenal continue in the zero club. In the opening round, it lost to series raiser Brentford 0-2.
According to statistics service Opta, Arsenal had never started the season with two losses without scoring a goal in its 118-year main series history.
In the next round, the team will face the reigning champion on Manchester City away, so it doesn’t seem easy to continue.
Last season’s runner-up Manchester United earned a point for Southampton when the match ended 1-1. The home team took the lead at half an hour after ManU’s Fred scored his own goal. The second episode took ten minutes, and ManU’s Mason Greenwood smoothed out the readings.
Tottenham took their second consecutive 1-0 win in football in the English Premier League when it defeated Wolverhampton in Sunday afternoon. Dele Alli took the away team’s lead into Tottenham as early as the ninth minute when he immersed his penalty kick into the opponent’s goal.
“It’s always good to get a goal at the beginning of a match. It makes things a lot easier, but the Wolves played well. We defended in unison, and I am proud of the boys. Of course, I’m happy with such a start (two wins), but we have a long way to go and a lot to develop in our game, ”Tottenham head coach Nuno Espirito Santo told the BBC.
Twenty minutes before the end, the head coach ran Harry Kanen onto the field, playing his first league minutes of the season. He was not in the line-up a week ago when Tottenham defeated Manchester City 1-0.
Last season’s paint king has just been taken to City, but the reigning champion is unwilling to pay the transfer amount required for Kane.
“He played, is getting fit and helped us. He is a big help to us. We are talking about one of the best players in the world. We are very lucky to have him,” the Tottenham pilot acknowledged the inquiries about Kane’s situation.
Wolverhampton have lost both matches of the season.
