Liverpool stumbles, Tottenham impresses in EPL openers
By MATTIAS KARÉN
LONDON (AP) — Liverpool has made a stuttering start to the English Premier League. Tottenham showed it might be ready to take another step forward under Antonio Conte. Liverpool had to come from behind twice to salvage a 2-2 draw at promoted Fulham after a performance that Jurgen Klopp conceded was well short of the team’s standards. Tottenham also conceded an early goal but came roaring back to earn a 4-1 victory at home against Southampton after a dominant display that hinted that Spurs are well gelled after a full offseason under Conte. Newcastle, Leeds and Bournemouth also earned wins in the first round.
