England: Klich with another goal, Bednarek loses to Kane-Son alliance

Polish midfielder Mateusz Klich of Leeds United looks very much at home in England’s top-flight despite this being his debut season in the Premier League. He scored another goal in his second consecutive game and added an assist. His club defeated another newly-promoted side, Fulham 4:3.

Klich also scored in the first game of the season against Liverpool, last season’s champions. He and his team turned in a fine performance against the title-holder but were defeated 4:3.

Jan Bednarek, a defender of Southampton will not wish to be reminded of this round of Premier League. His team’s opposition Tottenham overwhelmed the Saints in a 2:5 defeat. Bednarek and his fellow defenders played a daring high line which failed as they were massacred by duo Harry Kane and Son Heung-min. The Korean player netted four times, all his goals were assisted by Kane, who scored the last, fifth goal for Spurs.

Kamil Grosicki’s West Bromwich Albion also lost 2:5 to an in-form Everton. Goalkeeper Łukasz Fabiański also tasted bitter defeat as his West Ham team were defeated by a late winner by Arsenal, losing the London derby 2:1.
