Aston Villa secured a 2-0 win over Newcastle United when Danny Ings scored the winner, the second Premier League goal for his new club.

Ings scored three minutes in the first half of added time to put his team in the lead. The former Southampton striker shot an acrobatic volley to get a shot into the corner of the net after Tyrone Mings delivered a flick-on. Mings was sort of the provider when his header was classified by VAR as a handball player by Newcastle center-back Jamaal Lascelles.

Anwar El Ghazi converted to ensure victory when he scored a goal just after an hour.

Elsewhere, Brentford continued to rule out opponents as they cleared one more time on Saturday, this time on their visit to Crystal Palace.

Palace gave the Bees an early scare when Conor Gallagher – who made his debut for the Londoners – fired a shot against the post and David Raya made a good stop from James McArthur.

However, while Brentford took two in his opening game win against Arsenal last Friday, they couldn’t move past the Palace defense, which was re-energized by manager Patrick Vieira in the summer transfer market.

Brazilian winger Raphinha scored a point for Leeds United 18 minutes from time when they drew 2-2 against Everton at Goodison Park.

Everton originally took the lead through Dominic Calvert-Lewin when the English striker scored from the point when the VAR system missed a penalty. Mateusz Klich scored a clean equalizer, only to get Calvert-Lewin a second shortly after half-time after an assist from Demarai Gray.

However, Raphinha shot a curling shot from long range to defeat the goalkeeper and secure some of the points for Marcelo Bielsa’s side.

Jack Grealish scored a goal on his home debut for Manchester City that resulted in a 5-0 win over Norwich City.

Gabriel Jesus, who played on the right, set up three of the goals with crosses, the first of which came after Grant Hanley hit the ball against Tim Krul for an accidental own goal.

After Ferran Torres saw a goal being disqualified by the VAR due to a foul at the start of the move, Grealish scored the second despite little knowledge of it. Again, the Brazilian’s flat ball was deflected at close range by the guest’s defense, this time to the ex-Aston Villa man six meters away, who hit his thigh and went inside.

Liverpool got their perfect start to the 2021/22 season with a 2-0 win over Burnley at Anfield.

The visitors had the better half of the first half, with Chris Wood and James Tarkowski both missing good opportunities, but a fleeting header from Diogo Jota gave Liverpool the lead on 18 minutes. Mohamed Salah had not recognized a goal later at halftime due to a minor offside position.

In the second half, Liverpool took control of the game and created numerous opportunities before Sadio Mane in the 69.
