Lopetegui’s Sevilla beat Alaves, go top of La Liga

Sevilla climbed to the top of La Liga on Sunday after beating Alaves 1-0 away from home.

Spanish midfielder Joan Jordan scored the only goal of the game in the 37th minute, sending a free kick fizzing into the top corner.

Mexico forward Javier Hernandez made his debut for Sevilla when he came off the bench in the second half but Alaves finished the game stronger and spurned two chances to equalise late on.

The win took former Spain and Real Madrid coach Julen Lopetegui’s side to the top of the table after four games on 10 points, one more than Atletico Madrid who were beaten 2-0 at Real Sociedad on Sunday.

Premier League: Wilson at the double as Bournemouth sink Everton

Callum Wilson scored a brace as Bournemouth beat Everton 3-1 on Sunday afternoon.

Everton had the better of the opening exchanges and came inches away from opening the scoring when Richarlison’s long-range effort hit the crossbar, but it was instead the hosts who struck first as Wilson nodded in from a corner.

However, Dominic Calvert-Lewin sent Everton into the break level as he too scored a close-range header, this time from a Richarlison cross.

With the game there for the taking, it was Bournemouth who did just that. Substitute Ryan Fraser put them back ahead when his low free-kick evaded a crowded area but ended up in the back of the net.

Wilson then added a third and his second five minutes later, lifting the ball past Jordan Pickford after some terrible defending left him through on goal.

The win lifts Bournemouth to eighth and they leapfrog Everton.
