7:47 pm
after so long away. it's been 18 months of waiting for most of these supporters — so there was noise, there were tears as their teams emerged, including at leicester where the last capacity top flight match took place in march 2020. there was a tribute to the late graham taylor at watford in a match between two clubs he used to manage, and at chelsea they welcomed back the european champions to stamford bridge, while crystal palace welcomed their new manager patrick vieira, who as a player at arsenal never lost to chelsea. but his time as a manager in england started with defeat. chelsea dominant from the start in this match, winning 3—0 — alonso, pulisic, and the young english midfielder trevoh chalabah on his premier league debut with the goals. great start then for chelsea, but vieira as a manager remains an unknown quantity — he's managed nice in france and coached the young players at manchester city,

but he knows taking over from roy hodgson at palace is a different challenge and says he needs more signings to get his team up to scratch. we knew it would be challenging today because we are talking about chelsea and they may have 20 international players. we showed the difference between the clubs. we still need to work and still need to improve the squad. the window is still up and i look forward to bringing some more players. trier? bringing some more players. very impressive _ bringing some more players. very impressive performance and you have romelu _ impressive performance and you have romelu lukaku to add to the mix. what _ romelu lukaku to add to the mix. what is _ romelu lukaku to add to the mix. what is it— romelu lukaku to add to the mix. what is it going to bring? personality, _ what is it going to bring? personality, physique, i what is it going to bring? - personality, physique, experience what is it going to bring? _ personality, physique, experience of taking— personality, physique, experience of taking responsibility— personality, physique, experience of taking responsibility in _ personality, physique, experience of taking responsibility in scoring - personality, physique, experience of taking responsibility in scoring but. taking responsibility in scoring but also taking — taking responsibility in scoring but also taking responsibility - taking responsibility in scoring but also taking responsibility of - also taking responsibility of players _ also taking responsibility of players around _ also taking responsibility of players around him. - also taking responsibility of players around him. so- also taking responsibility of players around him. so he. also taking responsibility ofl players around him. so he is also taking responsibility of i players around him. so he is a also taking responsibility of - players around him. so he is a big chelsea _ players around him. so he is a big chelsea fan — players around him. so he is a big chelsea fan and _ players around him. so he is a big chelsea fan and he _ players around him. so he is a big chelsea fan and he absolutely - players around him. so he is a bigi chelsea fan and he absolutely was thrilled _ chelsea fan and he absolutely was thrilled about _ chelsea fan and he absolutely was thrilled about the _

chelsea fan and he absolutely was thrilled about the idea _ chelsea fan and he absolutely was thrilled about the idea of - chelsea fan and he absolutely was thrilled about the idea of coming i thrilled about the idea of coming back _ a former chelsea boss, better known as a former liverpool boss, is now the everton boss rafa benitez. he's got work to do to win over the fans, but he's made a winning start? yeah, we spoke to everton fans on sportsday when rafa benitez was appointed manager last month. they said it felt like seeing him in blue felt like a practicaljoke gone wrong — this something they never thought they'd see when benitez was leading their arch rivals liverpool to the champions league title 16 years ago. it all means he needs a good start to get some credit in the bank early. and that's just what his team got against southampton — they were behind at half time but they turned it round through richarlison who equalised, he was playing just a week from winning gold for brazil in the olympic football final — before winning goals from abdoulaye doucoure and england's dominic calvert—lewin
7:50 pm
made sure it was joy at goodison on day one for benitez. thanks to the fans for the support for me in the team. i think it is an important situation this year with the fans behind not like last year. we saw determination and character and belief. and we know it is the beginning and we need to improve but we are pleased with the reaction of the team and the support of the fans. we saw brentford make a winning start to life in the premier league, and now watford have done the same? watford possibly with the shock result of the day, beating aston villa 3—2. in fact they were 3—0 up until two consolations for dean smith's side. it means watford join another newly promoted side brentford in winning their opening fixture and sparking these joyous scenes at vicarage road.

xisco munoz the manager there who led them back to the top flight — watford we know with a pretty brutal record of sacking managers as soon as results go sour. in the other two matches back behind the three o'clock blackout and not on live television today, a winning start for leicester city. jamie vardy scoring for them to beat wolves in their first match with new manager bruno larger, and brighton coming from behind late on to beat burnley 2—i. two late goals for brighton there, making it a good start for graham potter's side. tomorrow we get a first look at newcastle, west ham, tottenham and the champions
7:52 pm
manchester city. there was a dramatic comeback in the championship where peterborough snatched victory from derby at the weston homes stadium. wayne rooney might have thought he'd overcome derby's problems, brought about by their finances and transfer embargo, when substitute jack stretton put his side ahead. but peterborough pounced in 11 minutes worth of added time with goals from substitutes harrison burrows and then siriki dembele to take all three points. only two games into the championship season and none of the 2a teams have a perfect record anymore. fulham are the very early leaders after a thumping 5—1 win at huddersfield. qpr also winning on the road — 3—0 at hull city and bournemouth got their first win with a 2—1
7:53 pm
victory at nottingham forest. sheffield united get underway shortly, away to swansea. you can see all the other results on a busy day in the efl on the bbc sport website. no scottish premiership action today, but there were three games in the second round of league cup. livingstone, who reached the final last season, are through to the last eight, beating st mirren on penalties. it finished 1—1 in normal time. dundee and dundee united also made it through. time now for some of the day's other sport stories. and 0lympic silver medallist cj ujah has denied any wrongdoing after a positive drugs test, having been provisionally suspended following great britain's four by 100 metre relay in tokyo. ujah said in a statement, "to be absolutely clear, i am not a cheat". a week after claiming his first motogp win from pole at the styrian grand prix, jorge martin is looking to repeat the feat. the spanish rider set a new lap record at the red bull ring as he claimed pole again for the austrian grand prix.

toyota's takamoto katsuta had a lucky escape after crashing during stage ten of rally belgium, the force of the impact causing extensive damage to the japanese driver's car. his british team mate elfyn evans is lying third overall, 42 seconds off the lead. england have edged into a 27 run lead after the third day of the second test against india at lords. ajoe root batting masterclass again the reason why. for the second successive match he hit a hundred but wickets fell around him late into the day as england slipped from 341—5 to 391 all out. stuart pollitt reports. when england's batting is in trouble — as it often is — there's usually one way out of it. relying onjoe root — the captain's century in the first test saved his team — another half century here.
7:55 pm
with root regularly resolute, the other end has been the path of least resistance for opposition bowlers. not today — jonny bairstow battling to a half century in support of his skipper. england through to lunch without losing a wicket. no wonder the champagne corks were popping. bairstow departed soon after for 57, but root remained — a quick single taking him to a second successive hundred. pressure released after the weight of carrying his team. a release too from ishant sharma after he clean bowled jos buttler. root went on... ..and on... 150 his next milestone. but then rapidly began to run out of partners. two wickets in two balls — both caught at slip — saw the back of moeen ali and sam curran. but after more than eight hours at the crease the england captain
7:56 pm
steered his team into the lead. this was root�*s day, but both sides will feel they still have a path to victory. and there was a comfortable win for 0val invinicibles as they beat london spirit by eight wickets with 13 balls to spare in the women's hundred. georgia adams was the "match hero" at the oval as she hit five boundaries to top score with 37 runs. the victory leaves the invincibles second in the table behind southern brave. and the men's match is live at the moment on bbc two. but that is all now for me. good night. the weather is best described as

mixed but not especially dramatic for the weekend. the satellite shows where we had those areas of cloud. these are tied in with a couple of different frontal systems that will have an influence on the rest of the weekend. but always with some brighter spells in between. some unclear spells through tonight for a time across scotland and southern england and then this area of cloud in between bringing outbreaks of rain to northern ireland and parts of scotland. temperatures through the central belt down to eight or 9 degrees. heading into tomorrow the weather systems are still working through. cloud and rain at times across central and southern parts of the uk and another providing showers across north east scotland and some of those could be heavy. we could see patchy rain across the south east first thing. cloud and rain at
