Richarlison strikes twice but 10-man Everton held at Wolves

The company said that summer transfer in the English topflight sparked a drop in spending for the first time since 2010.

World Cup victor Paul Pogba's third minute penalty and a late goal from Luke Shaw gave Manchester United a 2-1 win over Leicester City at Old Trafford in the opening game of the Premier League season on Friday.

One of the Premier League's all-time greats, Matt Le Tissier, has been discussing who he thinks did the best piece of business during the summer transfer window.

"For us it will be a hard season because I had my plans, and I had my plans for many months, and I started the Premier League season without a situation I thought".

That felt like a reference to Liverpool but, more importantly for United, it was also an admission that it will need a dramatic improvement this season for his own team to bridge the gap.

Spurs had nine players in Russian Federation until the final weekend and they only returned to training on Monday, with the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Jan Vertonghen and Hugo Lloris having differing levels of fitness.

"I'm not confident, I'm not confident and the market closes today, so is time at least for me to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed", Mourinho said.

Top-scorer at the World Cup in Russia, Harry Kane couldn't find the net in Tottenham's season-opener against Newcastle.

Can't beat that Premier League drama, can you?

Big outlays didn't immediately deliver on the field for Fulham, the first team to spend more than 100 million pounds after being promoted.

Wolves will not be affected by outside expectations this season, according to head coach Nuno Espirito Santo. The west London club was beaten 2-0 by Crystal Palace on Saturday. Only one of the 10 recruits did start: Brazilian defender Bernardo.

Everton took the lead inside the opening 20 minutes, with new signing Richarlison prodding home after some sloppy Wolves defending from Leighton Baines' free kick.

Everton's plans were derailed by Phil Jagielka being sent off in the 40th for a high-studs challenge on Diogo Jota's ankle.
