Liverpool beat Man City in New York
Liverpool exacted mild preseason revenge over Man City with a 3-1 penalty shoot-out win in their International Champions Cup match at New York's Yankee Stadium.
Man City pipped the Reds to the 2013-14 Premier League title last season and also took the lead here, with Stevan Jovetic opening the scoring with a low, right-footed shot in the 53rd minute.
Jordan Henderson equalized for Liverpool just six minutes later after fine work by Daniel Sturridge but Jovetic's second in the 67th minute, another close-range finish after Kelechi Iheanacho's shot was blocked, looked to have Manuel Pellegrini's side on course for victory.
But Brendan Rodgers' men weren't to be denied as Raheem Sterling's 85th minute finish sent the game to penalties. There, Aleksandar Kolarov, Yaya Toure and Jesus Navas all missed as the Reds took the win.
Cesc Fabregas scored his first goal in a Chelsea shirt as Jose Mourinho's side continued their preseason preparations with a 3-1 win against Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem.
Fellow summer signing Diego Costa, who joined in a 32 million pound switch from Atletico Madrid, impressed with two assists but was also involved in a heated exchange with Vitesse captain Guram Kashia.
After just three minutes in Arnhem, Costa was released by Nemanja Matic to slip the ball into the path of Mohamed Salah, who slotted home into an empty net.
Fabregas, who Mourinho claims turned down a return to his former club Arsenal in favour of Chelsea this summer, then found the top corner with a delightful free-kick from 25 yards out with 24 minutes gone.
Costa set up Matic to make it 3-0 after 76 minutes, but Chelsea were caught napping at the back late on, however, with Uros Djurdjevic heading home a consolation goal.
New acquisition Ayoze Perez scored in the second half to give Newcastle a 1-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.
Perez netted the only goal in the 66th minute when he ran onto a pass from Gabriel Obertan.
Sunderland suffered their first defeat of the preseason when they fell 1-0 to CD Nacional in their second game in two days in Portugal.
Patrick van Aanholt debuted for Sunderland, but it was Lucas who scored the winner for the Portuguese side in the final minute.
Chesterfield welcomed Aston Villa back from the United States by handing them a 3-1 defeat.
Tenadyi Darikwa and Sam Hird scored for last season's League Two champs in the first half, and though Jack Grealish got one back after the break, Villa could not equalise.
American keeper Brad Guzan returned to Villa for the first time since backing up Tim Howard for the U.S. at the World Cup but could not stop Sam Morsy from restoring Chesterfield's two-goal advantage late on.
Danny Drinkwater's late strike gave Leicester City a 3-2 win away to Walsall.
Wes Morgan and David Nugent gave Leicester a two-goal lead early, but Walsall scored on either side of halftime to level the score.
Drinkwater sent a 25-yard shot into the top corner in the 87th minute for the winner.
QPR were held to a goalless draw by Southend United. The result was hardly surprising, considering Harry Redknapp sent out an experimental side without a recognised striker.
