Arsenal draw 1-1 against Brentford, Chelsea draw against West Ham and Leicester City beat Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League
In the Premier League early kickoff, Chelsea traveled to face West Ham. Chelsea looked to bounce back from the recent poor run of form by beating West Ham but the fixture ended in a 1-1 draw.
New signings Enzo Fernandez and Joao Felix combined in the 16th minute to open the scoring as Chelsea were onto the perfect start. Enzo Fernandez had an impressive performance in Chelsea’s midfield.
Chelsea boss Graham Potter was disappointed with the refereeing decision that saw Chelsea lose a late penalty appeal that was waived off by referee Craig Pawson, without VAR intervention, “It looked a handball to me. I didn’t know Tomas [Soucek] could get down that quickly to make a save like that. It’s a good stop from him. It’s not for me to say about VAR. They are human beings. When there is a different human being in the room so every single decision and action means you won’t get the same one again. It’s very hard to get consistency. Some go for you, some don’t. You have to accept that.”
