Premier League on Saturday afternoon…18/08/2018

Week Two in the Premier League kicked-off at 12.30pm on Saturday afternoon when Cardiff City played out a scoreless draw with visitors Newcastle United. The ‘Bluebirds’ included loan signing Harry Arter in their starting eleven while £4 million summer signing Greg Cunningham was an unused substitute. Ciaran Clark retained his starting position for the ‘Magpies’ but Rob Elliot continues to be out of favour. Seamus Coleman started for Everton in their two one success over visitors Southampton for whom Shane Long was a fifty eight minute substitute. Leicester City defeated Wolverhampton Wanderers by two goals to nil, with Matt Doherty scoring an ‘own goal’ at the King Power Stadium, before being injured out following a tackle which earned the perpetrator Jamie Vardy a red card. Cyrus Christie was a very late substitute for Fulham in their three one defeat at Wembley Stadium by hosts Tottenham Hotspur.
