#PremierLeague Opening Weekend – 30 Things We Learnt!

Hi guys! For the first Premier League Weekly of the 2018/19 season I have decided to try out something different to just match reports from all of the matches over a gameweek. I will be coming up with 30 things that we learnt from the opening weekend of this season (3 from every match), so I hope you enjoy it! I would really appreciate any feedback and also can you tell me what you would like to see from next week’s Premier League Weekly please? Thanks!

Manchester United 2-1 Leicester City

  • Jose Mourinho isn’t finished in Manchester just yet.
  • Luke Shaw (may) have a future at Old Trafford after an excellent performance.
  • Paul Pogba’s penalty run up is ridiculous.
  • Newcastle United 1-2 Tottenham
    • Rafa Benitez will be disappointed with Newcastle’s transfer window.
      Harry Kane (still) can’t score in August.
      Dele Alli loves the opening day. He has scored on it for the second year running.

    Bournemouth 2-0 Cardiff City

    • Cardiff are going to have a difficult season in the Premier League.
    • Callum Wilson is a goal machine when he is fit.
    • Bournemouth will continue to flourish under Eddie Howe.
  • Fulham 0-2 Crystal Palace
    • If Wilfried Zaha is playing, Crystal Palace will always have a chance.
      Fulham are going to need time to gel after £100m+ spending spree.
      Palace will be challenging for a top ten finish this season.

    Huddersfield Town 0-3 Chelsea

    • Chelsea will play flowing football under Maurizio Sarri.
    • Sarri has restored Willian’s morale at Chelsea after he wanted to leave.
    • Huddersfield will struggle to stay up this season after last year’s heroics.
  • Watford 2-0 Brighton & Hove Albion
    • Watford have moved on from Richarlison pretty quickly.
      Glenn Murray is past his sell-by date.
      Brighton are going to have a hard battle on their hands to stay up.

    Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-2 Everton

    • Wolves are going to provide stern opposition for everyone this season.
    • Richarlison has got off to an absolute flyer at his new club.
    • Ruben Neves is an absolute gem of a player.
  • Liverpool 4-0 West Ham United
    • Jurgen Klopp’s team will probably be challenging for the Premier League title.
      Naby Keita is a wonderfully talented midfielder.
      Manuel Pellegrini may have an impossible job in East London.

    • Football can (sometimes) be boring.
    • Joe Hart may not be past his best just yet.
    • Burnley are going to be as solid as ever this season.
  • Arsenal 0-2 Manchester City
    • Man City are still an irresistible favourite for the Premier League title.
      Raheem Sterling isn’t himself in an England shirt.
