The main event of Wednesday’s preseason schedule is still to come, but we have four results in the books before dinner time. Chelsea and Liverpool will tangle in an International Champions Cup date at the Rose Bowl come 11 p.m. ET, but Sunderland, Southampton, Swansea and Crystal Palace all played earlier. Dijon 2-3 Sunderland David Moyes oversaw another win for the Black Cats, who took on a Ligue 1 side in Dijon. Star midfielder Wahbi Khazri scored again for Sunderland, Fabio Borini converted a penalty and Joel Asoro also scored. Sunderland never trailed but gave away a pair of leads on the evening. FC Twente 1-2 Southampton Virgil Van Dijk and Sam Gallagher scored for Saints as by all accounts
Southampton picked up their third win of pre-season by beating Twente 2-1 in the Netherlands, while Sunderland and Crystal Palace were also triumphant. Dusan Tadic, taking on his former club, produced a curling right-wing cross that Virgil van Dijk volleyed home in the 17th minute, the Saints taking that 1-0 lead into half-time. A fortuitous second came their way when Twente goalkeeper Nick Marsman spilled a cross under pressure from Sam Gallagher and the ball trickled over the line.
