Premier League on Sunday afternoon…26/08/2018

There was further Premier League action on Sunday afternoon with newly promoted Fulham, for whom Cyrus Christie was an unused substitute, securing a four two victory over a Burnley side who suffered a three one Europa League third round first leg defeat in Greece on Thursday evening. Jeff Hendrick and Stephen Ward both started again today, with Hendrick scoring after ten minutes, but Kevin Long was an unused substitute. Jon Walters appears to be out of favour while Robbie Brady is still seeking to regain full fitness following his lengthy injury absence. Also in late afternoon action were Newcastle United, for whom Ciaran Clark was on central defensive duty, who went down to a two one defeat by visitors  Chelsea at St James Park.
