Goal-fest at the Emirates to kick-off the season with a bang

Gooners were 2-3 down to the Foxes with 7 minutes to go then.....

As an attacking team the Arsenal are as good as anyone anywhere for sure. If the keep Sanchez and co. avoid injuries to big players and a dollop of good luck ... you never know mate . Would not put it beyond Arsenal Wenger.

I think City will win the league comfortably as long as they can keep Kompany fit or relatively fit and get 25+ games out of him. If they do that the defence should be ok and their midfield+attacking options are incredibly good.
Man United and Arsenal, will be challenging as well imo Arsenal looked really good on Friday considering all of the injuries etc they had no Koscielny, Mustafi, Carzola or Sanchez.
Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham battling for the last champions league spot. Tottenham are far better all round than Chelsea and Liverpool but the lack of home advantage at Wembley could effect them.

1. Man City
2. Man Utd
3. Arsenal
4. Chelsea
5. Liverpool
6. Tottenham
7. Everton
8. Bournemouth
9. Leicester
10. Crystal Palace
11. West Ham
12. Southampton
13. Swansea
14. Newcastle
15. Stoke
16. West Brom
17. Watford
18. Burnley
19. Huddersfield
20. Brighton
Also a keen Barcelona supporter since 2004-2005 (when they were average.)

Based on the first set of games this weekend, I will be surprised if the premier league winners come from outside of Manchester. Both teams looked brilliant.
Arsenal were missing some players, but looked vulnerable both in midfield and at the back. Chelsea did have 2 players sent off, but the infallibility of last year seems missing. They will miss Costa but the new striker looked very good. Liverpool don't appear to have the cohesion and players to make a serious challenge, especially if Courtino goes. Spurs will be in the mix again.

Mourinho's lot for me

Lukaku is a magnificent signing for them to go with Matic, Mata, Pogba who are all quality, then there is the improving Rashford too !

Just watched the Liverpool v Arsenal highlights.

That has to be one of the most feeble performances I've seen from a supposedly top premiership side. Defensively the Gooners were awful, no bite in midfield, no shots on goal, no effort, absolutely nothing !

May visit one of their forums tomorrow, should be lively, well as lively as a Gooner can be :lol:

That was just how they played against Leicester in the first game. I guess Liverpool are a bit better than Leicester!

That sort of lack of effort is indicative of a team that simply won't play for their coach. It was painful to watch, even for me, who had no horse in the race.
