Everton vs. Chelsea score: Live updates as Frank Lampard’s side hosts Raheem Sterling making his Blue debut

The Premier League is back and the opening weekend got off to the best possible start for Arsenal with a 2-0 victory away at Crystal Palace on Friday. Saturday has kicked off with a bang as Fulham showed that an away trip to a newly promoted side is no easy task even for a team like Liverpool. An early goal from Aleksandar Mitrovic paced things as Liverpool struggled until making double changes in the 51st minute. Thiago felt something in his leg and was taken out for Harvey Elliott while Roberto Firmino was withdrawn in a tactical change for Darwin Nunez.

The 10 am ET matches were similarly gripping with both Tottenham and Leeds going down a goal at home before coming back to secure victory, comfortably in Spurs’ case with a 4-1 win, and narrowly for Leeds with a final score of 2-1. Elsewhere Newcastle dominated newly promoted Nottingham Forest while Bournemouth upset Aston Villa 2-0

The day culminates with a 12:30 pm ET match between Everton and Chelsea. Frank Lampard plays host to his old team as Everton look to start off this season strong after battling relegation last term.
