The Premier League kicked off last weekend with fans back allowed back in the stadium, and their presence helped inspire seven of the sides to home wins. The other three games resulted in away victories. Across those 10 fixtures, we saw 34 goals scored by 15 teams. The five teams who failed to get on the scoresheet were Manchester City, Arsenal, Wolves, Crystal Palace, and Norwich City.
Matchday 02 promises to be just as good with the marquee fixture on Sunday between Arsenal and Chelsea at The Emirates. The pressure is already mounting on Mikel Arteta after The Gunners were embarrassed 2-0 by Brentford on Friday night.
This was a massive scalp for the newly-promoted side and the perfect start to their season. At the end of the game, Thomas Frank led his players in a victory lap around the stadium and shared this beautiful moment with one of their fans.
PREMIER LEAGUE 2021/22 SEASON GUIDES
WHERE’S HARRY KANE?
Was Harry Kane at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday? You would think as the club captain; he would support his teammates. Instead, he probably decided to take more terrible advice from his brother and agent Charlie Kane and stayed away, leaving his new manager to deal with the media.
I feel for Tottenham‘s new manager Nuno Espírito Santo having to answer question after question after question on Kane. I’m getting bored of it and would rather hear about the players who are playing, their new signings, his opinion on Dele Alli, tactics, and why he’s not included Tanguy Ndombélé in his last three squads.
Hopefully, this is all concluded soon, Harry gets a Carabao Cup medal, and we can move on with our lives.
PAUL POBGA SHINES WITH 4 ASSISTS
Paul Pogba became the first player in Manchester United‘s history to provide 4 assists in a Premier League game. The pick of the bunch was his pass for Mason Greenwood. The 2018 World Cup winner was sensational, spraying the ball around, and has already surpassed last season’s total of 3 assists.
Pogba only has 12 months left on his contract, and it is rumored that he doesn’t want to renew. With a couple of weeks left until the transfer window closes, it’s possible we could see him leave if Manchester United decides they don’t want to lose him for free next summer.
PREMIER LEAGUE BETTING: MATCHDAY 02 LINES
PREMIER LEAGUE BETTING: ODDS & ENDS
- Leeds United got off to a terrible start losing 5-1 at Old Trafford. I think Marcelo Bielsa will make adjustments to his team, and they will bounce back with a win against Everton. Back them on the Moneyline at +125.
- Arsenal were embarrassingly awful against Brentford last Friday. I’m confident Thomas Tuchel‘s Chelsea, who have just signed Romelu Lukaku, will take them apart. Back Chelsea -1.5 Goals on the Spread at +190.
- I like Tottenham on the Moneyline at +130. They looked solid against Manchester City and were full of fight, desire, and energy. Back Nuno Espírito Santo to inspire them to another victory against his former club Wolves.
- Both Teams To Score YES and Over 2.5 Goals at -105 is great odds for West Ham‘s encounter with Leicester City.
