A new season for Arsenal and disappointment caught them on the first weekend with a home loss against West Ham, including two miserable Petr Cech gaffes. Way up North of there, Newcastle and Southampton pleased the neutrals (not so much the home fans) with an entertaining 2-2 draw. Liverpool finished the day with one wonder strike from Philippe Coutinho to give them a 1-0 win over Stoke.

A boring but successful start for Manchester United with a 1-0 win over Tottenham to open the season, while Chelsea stuttered with 10 men at home to get a 2-2 draw against Swansea. Newly promoted sides got a total of one point out of a possible nine with Bournemouth losing to Aston Villa, Norwich to Crystal Palace and Watford drawing with Everton. City finished week one EPL game with a comfortable win against West Brom with two goals from Yaya Touré and Vincent Kompany headed in a corner as City delivered an early statement of Premier League title intent.
