Premier League kicks off


The Barclays Premier League kicked off in fine fashion over the weekend, offering up some startling results in the process.

Tottenham failed to knick a point at a hostile St James’ Park, as Ben Arfa clinched the win with a 79th minute penalty only minutes after Jermaine Defoe levelled the contest.

Liverpool’s campaign began is disarray as West Brom thrashed the Reds at the Hawthorns in convincing fashion with a 3-0 triumph. Reds manager Brendan Rodgers has a lot of work to do if his team is to challenge for a desired top-four finish. No one will get carried away after one match, but Liverpool’s uninspired performance will go down as a stark warning for the Anfield boys.

Chelsea and Manchester City predictably rattled off opening week victories to get their season started on the right foot.

Arsenal couldn’t muster any offensive output in their 0-0 stalemate with Sunderland. Although it’s too early to tell whether Robin Van Persie’s exit from the Emirates will be a burden too heavy for the North London club to overcome, his absence was extremely noticeable in week one. The listless disappointment of the draw was exacerbated by failing to score in front of a partisan Emirates’ crowd.

Fulham, Swansea and West Ham all ran out winners on opening day while Stoke City and Reading ended sharing the spoils, the only draw of the weekend.

Manchester United makes the quick jaunt to Goodison Park on Monday evening to battle a feisty Everton outfit in both team’s maiden matches of the new campaign.
