English Premier League (Week 1 Recap)

The Premier League returned for Week 1 of the 2023-24 season and delivered intensity

with not a nil-nil to be found among ten games.

Reigning champions Manchester City kicked off the season and fired off a salvo to the rest

of the league on Friday with a 3-0 win against Burnley at Turf Moor, and there were

answers of varying strength from Arsenal, Newcastle United, Brighton, and Liverpool.

The opening weekend saw a number of talking points, from red cards to emphatic wins

and VAR dramas.

One of the key topic from the weekend was the 1-1 draw between giants Chelsea and

Liverpool. Stamford bridge witnessed a new look Chelsea take on Liverpool on Mauricio

Pochettino's debut. Luis Diaz and Axel Disasi were the goal scorers in a match Argentine

midfielder Enzo Fernandez consistently shined.

Arsenal, Manchester United both got off to great starts with home wins, Arsenal saw off

late Nottingham Forest pressure to secure a 2-1 win, while Manchester United saw off

Wolves thanks to a late Rapheal Varane header in a match that had probably the biggest

controversy of all. The match officials have since be relived off any duties on the second

game-week for their errors.

Defending champions got off to a flying start at Turf Moor thanks to a brace from Erling

Haaland and also Rodri capped a brilliant performance with a goal. Injury to Kevin De

Bruyne ensured it wasn't a perfect night for the Citizens, City's captain is set to miss the

rest of the year.

Sandro Tonali played a role in both of Newcastle’s goals to take a well-deserved a 2-1 lead

at St. James’ Park against Aston Villa who lost defender, Tyrone Mings to injury. The

injury perhaps spurred on the Magpies as they just cooked up dangerous chance after

dangerous chance in the second half. The match ended 5-1 with Alexander Isak, Callum

Wilson and Harvey Barnes all registering.

David Moyes was left frustrated with a 1-1 draw against Bournemouth after his side led

for majority of the game.

Tottenham under new manager Ange Postecoglou had four debutants in the starting lineup

and it was one of them who was the star of the show. James Maddison got a brace of

assists in a 2-2 draw against Brentford. Brighton, Fulham, Crystal Palace all registered
