PREMIER LEAGUE 2020-21: Matchday 1 review

After almost 50 days off of our TV screens, the Premier League has finally returned to our screens and the much delayed 20/21 campaign is now underway. Let’s have a look at all the highlights from the first set of fixtures played over the weekend:

Results 

  • Fulham 0-3 Arsenal 
  • Crystal Palace 1-0 Southampton 
  • Liverpool 4-3 Leeds United
  • West Ham United 0-2 Newcastle United 
  • West Bromwich Albion 0-3 Leicester City 
  • Tottenham Hotspur 0-1 Everton
  • Sheffield United 0-2 Wolves
  • Brighton and Hove Albion 1-3 Chelsea 

Match of the Week

Liverpool vs Leeds United (4-3)

It was an absolute attacking masterclass as the Premier League Champions took on the victors of the Championship on the very first matchday. 

While Leeds did not get to a very encouraging start, conceding a penalty within the first ten minutes which Salah happily converted, they did put up a great fight. Marcelo Bielsa himself came out saying that his team were the better side in some passages. And in all honesty, it was hard to disagree. 

While the game looked set to finish on level terms, new signing Rodrygo gifted Liverpool in the dying minutes of regulation time. Salah once again scored from the spot, completing a hat-trick in the process. 

Honorable Mention: Fulham 0-3 Arsenal

Arsenal struggling to beat teams from the bottom half seems like too long ago. Mikel Arteta has completely transformed the Gunners into a side that looks sharp and confident in all aspects of the game. 

The first matchday was a gentle reminder that Arsenal are still in contention for the top spots. In addition, it was also an early sign that Fulham might be destined for relegation first this season. 

Player of the Week: Mohammed Salah

It’s hard to argue with this one. The Egyptian bagged three in the first game of the season and is way ahead of the rest in the race for the Golden Boot. 

The forward was on fire throughout the game and looks set to have another great season in the Prem. 

Goal of the Week: Reece James vs Brighton 

Mohamed Salah was just about to make the Goal of the Week. However, Reece James’s screamer against Brighton ultimately took the cake. 

Have a look at the unstoppable shot from well outside the box: 

What better way to score your first PL goal?

Man City vs Aston Villa and Man Utd vs Burnley were also scheduled to take place but have been postponed.The Premier League fixtures continue next week with Chelsea vs Liverpool and Man City vs Wolves seeming like the most explosive of the lot.
