Alright lads!!! We are back again and this time I will be talking about the roller coaster ride of the first week of the Premier League.
First things first, Hull City won their first game against Leicester City, the 15/16 EPL champions. This could be the effect of losing Kante, now they don’t have someone who will win the ball back in the middle of the field. Maybe we will see a trend of bottom tier teams competing for spots in the Top 10 of EPL.
Arsenal against Liverpool. Only thing I can say about that game can be summed up in 2 words, Philippe Coutinho. The Brazilian just bossed the midfield. With his teammates Adam the Llama, I mean Adam Lallana and Saido Mane who had a goal a piece. Mane is starting to pay off the transfer fee that Klopp paid Southampton to get the Senegalese striker. Are we gonna be seeing a Jurgen Klopp dynasty in the making in The Kop?
Next up is Manchester City against Sunderland. Sergio Aguero opened up his 2016/2017 scoring account with a goal from the 12 yard pot at 4 minutes in. Jermain Defoe, showing his class as a true goalscorer, leveled the match at 71 minutes in. The Citizens barely copped out a win if it isn’t for a deflection of off Paddy McNair thus scoring an own goal. Way to give Pep his first win Paddy, no booze for you tonight I guess.
Bournemouth didn’t stand a chance. With the amount of firepower United has, they should have made this goal margin pretty easy. Let’s just hope we don’t see a repeat of the MK Dons episode from a few years back.
Last but not the least, Chelsea against West Ham.This is a game that was destined for a draw, up until the 89th minute where Diego Costa showed us his heroics of scoring the winning goal. This was a match that was very hard to watch for me because I wanted The Blues to get their first win and start their season running. Let’s hope Eden Hazard keeps his form up and provides us more wins. Also, Michy Batshuayi showed us a glimpe of what he can do, leading off the build-up play that made Costa score the winning goal. Like we all would like to say, In Roman we Trust.
That’s it for today lads! I will be posting updates on the coming second week of the Premier League.
