The second weekend of this seasons Premier League kicked off in style with Swansea City v Manchester United. It took until the final minute of the first half for the visitors to open up the scoring, only for the flood-gates to truly open in the final 10 minutes of the match with Lukaku, Pogba & Martial scoring in quick succession. In his post-match interview, United boss Mourinho wasn't lying when he said he "let the horses run freely".
London team Crystal Palace ventured up North to Liverpool, hoping to further dampen the Red's spirits after a disappointing 3-3 draw to Watford on the opening weekend. It looked as though Liverpool were once again heading for a disappointing draw up until the 73rd minute, with the Senegalese Mané finally finding the back of the net, giving Anfield some much needed room to breathe.
The final match of Saturday was Stoke v Arsenal. The Gunners have struggled against stoke in the past; Stoke have lost just once in their past eight home Premier League games against Arsenal, winning four and drawing three. This trend unfortunately continued for Arsenal as they allowed Stoke debutant Jese Rodriguez to score with his second shot on target in his first Premier League season in the 47th minute. Arsenal boss Wenger stated in his post-match interview that his side were unfairly denied a goal and a penalty, but admittedly they had squandered their fair share of chances.
Sunday saw another North London team falter, with Tottenham playing at their temporary Wembley home against South West giants Chelsea. The Blues opened the scoring with a superbly struck free-kick from Alonso in the 24th minute, only for the score to be made equal in the 82nd with Chelsea's very own Batshuayi heading Christian Eriksen's free-kick into his own net with eight minutes left. However, Chelsea pressed on and managed to clinch the winner 4 minutes later with another great goal from Alonso.
Finally, we had Manchester City v Everton on Monday evening. Having finished a dull 1-1, the match wasn't without it's surprises, with City's new signing Kyle Walker being given his first Premier League red card in his 200th appearance in the competition. Recently returned legend Wayne Rooney showed Everton what they've been missing all these years as he netted his second goal in two games this season, bringing his Premier League tally up to 200 Premier League goals. Clearly 200 was the magic number this match!
