Champions Manchester City start their Premier League defence with a trip to Spurs as they look for a first ever win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

City have found life tough since Spurs’ new ground was completed, losing all three of their games there so far, with Heung-Min Son and Giovani Lo Celso on target in a 2-0 Premier League win last season.

Newly-promoted Norwich are the first visitors to the Etihad Stadium on August 21, before Arsenal follow them to the north west a week later.

We remain none the wiser as to whether Arsenal have actually made any improvement this season and whether Mikel Arteta has the acumen to restore the club to old glories.

Their opening seven games have been a complete mixed bag. They started with three consecutive defeats – surprisingly to Brentford and then less surprisingly to Chelsea and Man City (5-0).

This was then followed by ground out wins over Norwich and Burnley before everything seemed to click in that impressive north London derby win over Tottenham.

period.

Bruno and Pogba Help United Thrash Leeds

Bruno and Paul Pogba

Bruno Fernandes scored an opening-day hat-trick as Manchester United swept Leeds aside with a devastating second-half display.

The Portugal midfielder opened the scoring on the half-hour mark at a packed Old Trafford, but Luke Ayling’s thunderous strike drew Leeds level early in the second half.

Mason Greenwood restored the hosts’ lead with a crisp finish less than two minutes later, before Fernandes’ low shot was ruled to have crossed the line by referee Paul Tierney after a check of goalline technology.

The 26-year-old quickly completed his hat-trick with a thumping finish from Victor Lindelof’s pass, before Fred added United’s fourth goal in 14 minutes from Paul Pogba’s cross – the Frenchman’s fourth assist of the afternoon.

New Season Same Story As Arsenal Disappoint Again

Arteta Arsenal

New season, same old Arsenal!

Shaky at the back, toothless going forward, this all felt very familiar as Mikel Arteta’s men were soundly beaten 2-0 by Brentford. With games against Chelsea and Manchester City coming up this already looks like a long season ahead for the Gunners.

Afterwards Mikel Arteta cut a frustrated figure in his post match interview telling Arsenal Media:

Leicester Upset Man City To Win Community Shield

Leicester Trophy

Leicester beat Man City 1-0 to win the Community Shield at Wembley on Sunday, with Kelechi Iheanacho snatching the headlines away from Jack Grealish.

City’s new big-money signing made his debut as a substitute, but it was their old man Iheanacho whose late winner settled the match.

There were no goals in the first half despite a few decent chances testing both keepers. Ilkay Gundogan forced a good save out of Kasper Schmeichel with a well-struck free-kick inside ten minutes.

Leicester then showed their creativity with James Maddison, Harvey Barnes and Jamie Vardy working well together, but failing to find the net.
