But Sevilla replied with two goals as Ever Banega struck twice in the space of four minutes early in the second half.

The Argentine scored with a tidy finish past goalkeeper Jordan Pickford before converting a penalty moments later when Gareth Barry fouled Nolito in the box.

Kevin Mirallas equalised from the spot in the 80th minute, meaning Ronald Koeman’s side had to settle for a draw.

  • Brighton & Hove Albion 2-3 Atletico Madrid

In front of a crowd of 31,000 at the Amex Stadium, Brighton lost 3-2 to Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid.

Pascal Gross and Steve Sidwell each pulled a goal back for the hosts to equalise, but Lucas Hernandez gave Atletico the win against Chris Hughton’s side.

Nicolas Gaitan broke the deadlock with a tame strike past goalkeeper Mathew Ryan in the 43rd minute before Gross equalised with a deflected free-kick in the 61st minute.

Fernando Torres then gave Atletico the lead again six minutes later with a header.

Sidwell got on the end of a Solly March cross with a header to level again for the Seagulls, but Atletico won the game late on as Ryan parried Antoine Griezmann’s effort into the path of Hernandez, who secured victory for Los Colchoneros in the 89th minute.

  • Bournemouth 2-2 Napoli

Dries Mertens gave the visitors the lead in the 30th minute as Lorenzo Insigne’s strike heavily deflected off the Belgian and past Asmir Begovic in goal.

The Cherries pulled a goal back in the 51st minute as Max Gradel’s deflected cross was nodded in at the far post by Benik Afobe.

Fullback Simon Francis then gave Bournemouth the lead in the 75th minute as he confidently rounded goalkeeper Rafael Cabral and slotted home.

Liverpool concluded their warm-up games with a victory, beating La Liga side Athletic Bilbao 3-1 in Dublin.

Roberto Firmino, Ben Woodburn and Dominic Solanke scored the goals in front of over 51,000 fans in Ireland.

Roberto Firmino’s penalty was cancelled out by Inaki Williams’s well-taken strike in the first half.

  • Tottenham 2-0 Juventus

Tottenham concluded their pre-season campaign with a 2-0 victory over Serie A champions Juventus at Wembley Stadium.

Harry Kane opened the scoring with a header in the 10th minute and Christian Eriksen added a second seven minutes after half-time after receiving a Dele Alli pass and beating Gianluigi Buffon.

The victory at their home for the season might have been even more emphatic, but Kane and Moussa Sissoko both struck the woodwork, while Hugo Lloris made two fine saves to deny Juan Cuadrado and Paulo Dybala.

The only sour note for Mauricio Pochettino was an injury to right-back Kieran Trippier, who set up Kane’s goal but limped off after 42 minutes.

    • Southampton 2-0 Sevilla

Southampton gave themselves a boost ahead of next weekend’s Premier League opener against Swansea City with a 2-0 victory over Sevilla.

Goals from Jack Stephens and Manolo Gabbiadini did the damage for Mauricio Pellegrino’s team.

Stephens’ first-half volley gave Saints the advantage going into the break, before Gabbiadini doubled the advantage with a neat finish eight minutes from time.

  • Swansea 4-0 Sampdoria

Swansea left out Gylfi Sigurdsson once again as they brushed Sampdoria aside in their final friendly before the Premier League season starts.

Everton and Leicester have had £40m bids rejected for the Iceland midfielder, who Swansea value at £50m.

Leroy Fer’s header put the Swans 1-0 up, before Sampdoria’s Ricky Alvarez put a back pass into his own net.

Tammy Abraham bundled in a third and then Federico Fernandez nodded in to complete the rout.

Stoke City benefitted from an own goal to steal a 2-1 win away to RB Leipzig. Last season’s Bundesliga runners-up took a fifth minute lead after Jack Butland conceded a penalty that Emil Forsberg created, but Mame Diouf equalised following a corner just before the break. But on 78 minutes, Leipzig’s Marvin Compper headed a seemingly harmless cross up and over his own goalkeeper.

Frank de Boer’s first game in the Selhurst Park dugout ended in stalemate as Crystal Palace drew 1-1 with FC Schalke.

The Eagles trailed at the break when Pablo Insua netted just before half-time but Christian Benteke equalised on the hour mark with a header after some speedy work down the flank by Wilfried Zaha. T

he result means Palace are unbeaten in their last three pre-season matches ahead of their season opener with Premier League new boys Huddersfield next weekend.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Juan Mata score as Manchester United win Sampdoria in Dublin

Manchester United 2-1 Sampdoria

Juan Mata scored the winner as Manchester United’s pre-season ended with an encouraging 2-1 victory over Sampdoria in Dublin.

In a game that will be remembered for Nemanja Matic making his first United appearance, Jose Mourinho’s side took the lead inside nine minutes thanks to Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s third goal of pre-season.

United controlled large parts of the friendly at the Aviva Stadium but were made to work for the victory as Dennis Praet’s 63rd-minute strike set up a tense finale.

But substitute Mata made the workout worthwhile with the decisive strike nine minutes from time as United signed off their preparations for the new campaign with a sixth win from seven.

United face Real Madrid in the Uefa Super Cup final on Tuesday before starting their Premier League campaign against West Ham on Sunday, 13 August.

Dominic Solanke impresses as Philippe Coutinho captained Liverpool beat Hertha Berlin

Liverpool 3-0 Hertha Berlin

Dominic Solanke scored his second goal of pre-season as Liverpool eased past Hertha Berlin 3-0 on Saturday.

The summer signing nodded the Reds in front in the 15th minute at the Olympiastadion, having been called into the starting XI as a late replacement after Divock Origi pulled out with a tight hamstring.

Solanke then played a part in setting up Georginio Wijnaldum to score the second, before Philippe Coutinho, named as captain for the day, lofted a ball over the top for Mo Salah to make it 3-0 after half-time.

The win continues Liverpool’s unbeaten pre-season campaign and should provide more optimism for the campaign ahead, with several new signings impressing in a good all-around display.

Perhaps with recent speculation over his future in mind, Jurgen Klopp handed the captain’s armband to Coutinho, with the Brazil international playing on the left of the front three in the first half.

Sadio Mane also started as he made his first appearance since suffering a knee injury in April.

Manchester City thrash Tottenham in ICC

Manchester City coasted to a 3-0 International Champions Cup victory over Tottenham in Nashville.

New signings Ederson, Danilo and Kyle Walker were all named in the City starting line-up but it was John Stones who opened the scoring 10 minutes into the game.

City should have been out of sight before the break as they created a string of chances, with Gabriel Jesus missing an open goal late in the half.

In the second half Sergio Aguero struck the post twice before Raheem Sterling and Brahim Diaz then added further goals in the second half to wrap up victory.

Sterling doubled the advantage with 16 minutes when he waltzed through an almost static Tottenham defence and turned the ball past Michel Vorm.

Victory was wrapped up in stoppage time when Tottenham failed to clear their lines after a series of shots were blocked and Diaz popped up to make it two goals from two games with a simple tap in.

Ivan Perisic strike as Inter Milan beat Chelsea to clinch ICC Singapore

Chelsea 1 – 2 Inter Milan

Luciano Spalletti’s Inter Milan defeated Antonio Conte’s Chelsea 2-1 to win the International Champions Cup Singapore tournament.

Ivan Perisic demonstrated what he can do against Premier League opposition by firing Inter Milan to a 2-1 friendly victory over Chelsea in Singapore.

The Croatian winger has been linked with Manchester United this summer although Inter boss Luciano Spalletti said in the build-up to this pre-season clash he would “strongly oppose” any sale.

Nerazzurri players scored all three goals at the National Stadium, with former Manchester City forward Stevan Jovetic converting a penalty in first-half stoppage time to give the Italians the lead.

Perisic, who notched 11 times in Serie A last season, made it 2-0 with a stunning angled drive shortly after the restart and substitute Geoffrey Kondogbia ensured the tie was memorable by providing a comical own goal.

Somehow the French midfielder managed to lob Inter goalkeeper Daniele Padelli from 40 yards with an overcooked back-pass. It was not, however, enough to save Chelsea from back-to-back defeats.

Eder’s brace help Inter Milan sink Bayern Munich

Inter Milan striker Eder scored an early brace to secure a 2-0 victory over Bayern Munich in the International Champions Cup (ICC) in Singapore.

Bayern had caught Chelsea cold on Tuesday when three strikes in the first 30 minutes set the Germans up for a 3-2 win, but this time it was the Bundesliga champions who were caught cold as some sluggish defending allowed Eder to net twice in the first half-hour.

Ivan Perisic showed flashes of the form that has attracted the attention of Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho as Inter warmed up for Saturday’s clash with Chelsea with a positive result.

Franck Ribery provided the first moment of magic in the sixth minute when he cut inside from the left and fired in a powerful shot that Samir Handanovic did well to push over.

But Inter responded by taking an eighth-minute lead. Antonio Candreva broke down the right and swung in a tantalising low cross. Eder got in front of Bayern defender Felix Gotze, and the ball bounced perfectly for him to stoop and send a header into the top corner of the net from 10 yards.

Perisic then did a little showboating with a few stepovers, much to the delight of the crowd, demonstrating the confidence the goal had given the Italian side.

Inter added a second goal in the 30th minute when the Bayern defence were again caught napping. Perisic found time and space on the left to deliver an excellent cross, and the Bayern defence allowed Eder a free run into the box.

The Italy international took advantage by heading past Sven Ulreich. Things down got worse for the German champions as their most lively player, Ribery, went off injured and was replaced by Milos Pantovic.

It was a much-changed Bayern side that appeared for the second half.

Thomas Muller replaced James Rodriguez as a total of four substitutions were made. There was almost an immediate impact as Robert Lewandowski volleyed narrowly over in the first minute of the second period.

But Perisic again caused Bayern trouble with a surging run down the left that took him clear of the Bayern defence, but none of his teammates could keep up and he had no support before being upended by Niklas Dorsch.

An edge was creeping into the game and Borja Valero was unhappy when Lewandowski fended off his attentions with an elbow.

And a yellow card was finally produced when Gotz’s cynical foul on Gabriel Barbosa pushed the referee’s patience too far.

Inter made three substitutions in the 65th minute as the game began to slow down. Kingsley Coman and Renato Sanches made some encouraging runs without reward as Inter put more men behind the ball.

The closest thing to a goal in the closing stages came from Inter’s own player as Joao Miranda’s attempted clearance was headed straight for the Inter net until Handanovic pushed the ball wide with a reflex save.

Some more determined defending kept Bayern at bay and ensured that the Germans were unable to score against either of the Milan sides in the ICC, having been beaten 4-0 by AC Milan in China on Saturday.

The tournament concludes on Saturday when Inter take on Chelsea, who lost 3-2 to Bayern on Tuesday, at the same venue.
