    The 2020/21 English Premier League season got underway this afternoon after just a seven-week break following the conclusion of the 2019/20 campaign that was disrupted by coronavirus pandemic with Arsenal showcasing their offensive power in a 3-0 thrashing of newly promoted side Fulham in the first game of the season and Crystal Palace edging Southampton by a goal at home in the second game of the day.

    It was an uncharacteristic start to the season for Defending Champions, Liverpool, at Anfield, as they had to wait till the final embers of the game to put newly promoted side, Leeds United, away in a seven-goal thriller that saw Mohammed Salah score the first hat-trick of the season.

    In the final game of the day, Newcastle got their season off to a glorious start with a blistering performance that saw them down hosts, West Ham, by two goals to nothing.


    Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy got his Golden Boot title defense off to a great start as he netted two goals from the spot in his side’s 3-0 thumping of West Bromwich. And a poor Spurs display in their home opener saw an impressive Everton side bag all three points.

    And on Monday, big-spending Chelsea and Wolves got their campaigns off to incredulous starts with respective victories against Brighton and Sheffield United.

    Burnley vs. Manchester United


    Fulham 0-3 Arsenal

    Arsenal's old and new faces starred as they beat newly-promoted Fulham 3-0 at Craven Cottage in the Premier League season opener.

    Arsenal got Mikel Arteta's first full campaign up and running through Alexandre Lacazette's tap-in (9) as debutant Willian's shot was parried by Marek Rodak, before Willian hit the post with a free-kick.

    Willian's corner was then nodded home by fellow debutant and man-of-the-match Gabriel Magalhaes after the break (49) before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang curled home a beauty from just inside the box from another Willian assist (57) to hand Arsenal a dominant opening-day win.

    Arsenal's momentum and belief was clear to see, with Arteta claiming his 18th win in the last 30 games.

    Crystal Palace 1-0 Southampton

    Wilfried Zaha's 50th goal in league football secured injury-hit Crystal Palace a 1-0 win over Southampton on the opening day of the Premier League season at Selhurst Park.

    Zaha met Andros Townsend's cross to volley the hosts in front (13) against a lacklustre Saints, who failed to replicate the impressive form shown towards the end of last campaign.

    Kyle Walker-Peters saw his red card for a foul on Tyrick Mitchell overturned by referee Jon Moss having consulted VAR Craig Pawson and his pitch-side monitor.

    Palace, who had not won in eight games since last season's restart, were very nearly made to pay for Zaha's miss in stoppage time when Vicente Guaita saved brilliantly to deny Danny Ings during a frantic finish but they held on to secure all three points.

    Liverpool 4-3 Leeds United

    Leeds United returned to the Premier League with a bang but were beaten 4-3 by champions Liverpool in a thrilling encounter at Anfield.

    Liverpool found themselves in front three times but were pegged back by a ruthless Leeds, who took the step up to the elite level in their stride. However, a late Mohamed Salah penalty - to seal his hat-trick - handed the hosts maximum points.

    Salah also scored the first of his treble from the penalty spot after Leeds new-boy Robert Koch handled (4), but Jack Harrison scored an exquisite equaliser (12). Virgil van Dijk thumped home a header (20) only for Patrick Bamford to take advantage of a Van Dijk slip to level the game once again (30).

    Salah then fired home a spectacular strike (32) as Liverpool took control, yet, Mateusz Klich equalised for the third time (66). The game looked to be drawing to a quiet conclusion but Leeds' new signing Rodrigo inexplicably fouled Fabinho inside the box and Salah stroked home from the spot.

    West Ham 0-2 Newcastle

    Callum Wilson and Jeff Hendrick scored on debut as Newcastle heaped more early-season misery on West Ham with a 2-0 victory at the London Stadium on Saturday.

    Summer signing Wilson was a threat throughout Saturday's clash at the London Stadium and got his just rewards on 56 minutes when he got to fellow debutant Hendrick's flick ahead of Hammers goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski to bundle the Magpies' opener home.

    Wilson's eighth goal in nine league appearances against West Ham looked to be enough for the victory but Hendrick made sure, adding a goal to his assist with an emphatic drive into the roof of the net four minutes from time to send the Magpies second in the table after their first winning start to a league season in eight years.



    West Bromwich 0-3 Leicester City

    A Timothy Castagne debut goal and two Jamie Vardy penalties helped Leicester to beat West Brom 3-0 on Sunday.

    Leicester headed into the new season having dropped out of the top four and a Champions League qualification position in the final week of season - a position they had occupied since September 2019.

    However, there was no signs of a hangover as Castagne - a £21.5million signing from Atalanta - headed home (56) before two Vardy penalties (74) and (84) wrapped up the points.

    It was a toothless start to life back in the Premier League for the Baggies, who faded badly after a bright start and only registered one shot on goal in the second half.

    Tottenham 0-1 Everton

    Dominic Calvert-Lewin's superb second-half header gave Everton an impressive opening-day away win against a lifeless Tottenham on Super Sunday.

    Jose Mourinho's Tottenham were "lifeless, flat" and "walking around the pitch sulking" for large chunks of the second half, said Sky Sports' Gary Neville on commentary, with Spurs registering just nine tackles to Everton's 18, and Harry Kane touching the ball only twice in the Everton box.

    Both sides had chances in a goalless first half; Richarlison rounded Hugo Lloris but blazed over, before both Dele Alli and Matt Doherty were denied by Jordan Pickford at the other end.

    Everton's winner was coming, and Calvert-Lewin rose brilliantly to power a header into the top corner from Lucas Digne's deep free-kick, with Spurs' efforts to form a comeback lacking as the visitors comfortably held on.


    Brighton 1-3 Chelsea

    Chelsea began their Premier League season with a 3-1 away win against Brighton as Timo Werner and Kai Havertz made their debuts.

    Chelsea have made a number of marquee signings so far this summer, although only the German pair were fit enough to feature at the Amex Stadium. Werner, in particular, was lively on his first competitive Chelsea appearance and won a penalty in the 21st minute as Mat Ryan swiped at his legs, which Jorginho dispatched (23).

    But Brighton - having strengthened well themselves in the transfer window thus far - had their fair share of chances and deservedly levelled when Leandro Trossard (54) fired home, with Kepa Arrizabalaga's ability to deal with long-range strikes once again called into question.

    But Chelsea restored their lead less than two minutes later when Reece James (56) drilled home his first Premier League goal in stunning fashion. Kurt Zouma then nabbed a goal himself with his shot diverting off the toe of Adam Webster, leaving Ryan rooted to the spot.

    The victory marks a successful start for Frank Lampard's new-look side - whose last two title wins have started with victory on a Monday evening - while Brighton will feel like they deserved something from the encounter.

    Sheffield United 0-2 Wolves

    Wolves made a blistering start to their Premier League campaign with a 2-0 victory over Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.

    Nuno Espirito Santo's side scored twice inside the first six minutes, man of the match Raul Jimenez (3) converting Daniel Podence's cross before Romain Saiss' header doubled the advantage.

    After the break, Sheffield United were a different side as John Fleck hit the post and George Baldock saw a shot cleared off the line by Conor Coady, but Wolves should have made the game safe when Saiss' effort was tipped onto the post by Aaron Ramsdale and Jimenez steered the rebound wide.

    The Blades continued to plug away right until the final whistle, but it was to no avail as Wolves held on for an opening weekend victory.
