FC Everton footballers have confirmed an excellent start to the new season of the highest English competition. In Saturday's opening match of the 2nd round, they beat West Bromwich smoothly 5: 2, when the striker Glossed forward forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin. Carl Ancelotti's charges have the full number of six points in their account, last weekend they won on the Tottenham field 1: 0. Leeds won Fulham 4: 3 in the rookie duel. Slovak goalkeeper Marek Rodák was only at the guests' bench. The surprise was born in Manchester, where the United home lost 1: 3 to Crystal Palace in their first game of the season.
The visitors kept the pressure on to tie the game when, after 10 minutes, Grady Diangana broke through the center and found himself alone with the keeper. However, the end of the opening act belonged to Everton. With 31 minutes played, the visitors could have scored the tying goal after Calvert-Lewin came through the middle, but his kick went wide. The assistant referee advised the offside, but the VAR system corrected his verdict. In the last minute of the first half, James Rodríguez opened the shooting account in the jersey "The Toffees" and took Everton into the lead. Shortly afterwards, Kieran Gibbs saw the red card for rudeness and weakened the guests. The judge also sent West Bromwich coach Slaven Bilič to the stands for the protests.
The away team increased the lead to 2 - 2, as Matheus Pereira scored from the penalty spot, putting the ball in near the top left corner. Everton scored three goals from the 54th to
the 66th and decided definitively. Michael Keane raised to 3: 2 and Calvert-Lewin added two more hits, scoring four goals after two laps.
Also in the second match on Saturday, seven goals were scored. Leeds took the lead after Helder Costa's intervention in the 5th minute. Fulham scored his first goal after returning to the elite in the 34th minute, Aleksandar Mitrovič turned eleven. However, they went to the locker room at home, and Mateusz Klich was not wrong from the white point. After the change of sides, Leeds gained a three-goal lead when the Frenchman Alphons Areol, who took precedence over the Native, was overtaken by Patrick Bamford and for the second time in the Costa match. The guests did not give up, Bobby Reid and Mitrovič scored again during the 62nd to 67th, but Leeds already maintained a close lead and scored the first three points of the season.
Manchester didn't start a fight with Crystal Palace well after 7 minutes after losing to Androso Townsend, who finished off a quick break. The "red devils" had pressure, but the games room was worried. Mason Greenwood had a fantastic opportunity to put Mason Greenwood up another goal 60 minutes into the match, but he fired just over the crossbar. With 72 minutes played, seemingly due to lack of experience, Jordan Ayew needlessly tripped an opponent just outside the penalty area, but the free kick that followed didn't succeed. Wilfried Zaha appeared on cue near the post, and steered it past the goalie. He reduced the duel's favorite in the 80th minute thanks to Donny van de Beek, but adjusted it to the final 3: 1 for Crystal Palace five minutes later with his second goal in the Zaha match.
