Premier League Roundup: Week One

As August arrived the only thing on everyone’s mind was the start of the th biggest league in world football- The Premier League. The build up to the Prem was even more exhilarating than usual with the new addition of deadline day to be before the first tier of English football had got underway. This made for a jam-packed day with many notible signings, including Courtois’ move from Chelsea to the heat of the Spanish capital, Madrid. Some teams like Fulham made many signing to improve they squad, including club record signing Jean Michael Seri and they also acquired the loan services of Timothy Fosu-Mensah a young prospect from Man Utd!

By a pole, which I put out on my Instagram (follow me @jamiesportsblog), I was requested to do a review of the Man City vs Arsenal game, so here it is.

The winners of the Premier League last year Man City  were playing arguably there hardest game of their first seven games of the season. The opening run for City features teams such as, Huddersfield, Wolves, Newcastle, Fulham, Cardiff and Brighton. It is hard to look past City taking all 18 points from those fixtures especially after last season. Their biggest rivals are probably Liverpool who they play as their eighth game, could that determine the title? Arsenal came into this game with a new manager Emery. After such a long time period under Wenger it would be interesting to see how they would set up now. However not much had changed, the same disjointed style of football was played, same old Arsenal. Raheem Sterling gave City the lead within the first fifteen minutes with a strike from twenty yards out. This was Sterling’s fiftieth Premier League goal. At half time it was 1-0. City soon finished off the Gunners, an exquisite strike from Bernardo Silva sealed the three points and earns him man of the match. City as good as usual, Arsenal as poor as usual.
