Premier League on Saturday afternoon…25/08/2018

Wolverhampton Wanderers wing back Matt Doherty, who suffered a nasty injury on Saturday last, was fit and included in the starting eleven when all conquering Manchester City were held to a one all draw at Molineaux in the Premier League early this Saturday afternoon. Declan Rice, excluded from the West Ham United squad for last weekend’s home defeat by AFC Bournemouth, was back on the substitute bench as his side went down to a three one defeat by  Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium. Seamus Coleman and his Everton colleagues travelled to the South coast where AFC Bournemouth came from behind to secure a two all draw while Cardiff City included Harry Arter in their starting eleven with Greg Cunningham an unused substitute for their scoreless draw at Huddersfield Town. Shane Long started for Southampton who went down to a two one defeat at home to Leicester City while Shane Duffy was in the Brighton & Hove Albion starting eleven for the one nil defeat by Liverpool at Anfield.
