    Leicester and Wolves is a pretty tasty opener. You'd expect that one to be the fight for best of the rest, maybe with Everton thrown in there as well.

    Yeah just seen the Jesus goal. No way it is offside. Needs to be leading foot only. Discriminatory against fat people
    If they're going to be precise with VAR I'd say make it 30 or 50% of the forwards body rather than going by a single arm hair like they do now

    Enjoying Mourinhos insight, think he could be good this year on the panel.

    That defending was special.

    So bizarre. Man covering and just completely vacated the space behind him where Auba was.

    Not only that but he should have kept the line and made him offside. He basically did everything wrong.

    Pogba, McT, Pereira midfield doesnít exactly inspire confidence but back 4 should hopefully be solide.

    I have a feeling Chelsea will win. 4-2.

    I expected Newcastle to be absolute dump under Bruce but getting done by an Arsenal B team at home is quite the start.

    Matched last season's away clean sheets I think.

    Can't say that was particularly reassuring.

    I know Newcastle are an awful football club but that's a pretty great result considering who we had on the pitch and how good we are on the road.

    Good result, but too much sloppy passing. That said, a win is a win is a win. Mkhitaryan had an absolute stinker of a first half though, was barely average second half.

    @askew Not a particularly inspiring line-up is it.

    Chelsea's isn't much better :lol:

    Fun to see Abraham leading the line though. The transfer ban might end up being a fillip to their yoof.

    After yesterday's batterings the fact that Arsenal didn't score 3 today already pretty much writes off their title and Champion's League ambitions

    They're so far behind the rest of the big six

    The rest of the big 5 will be delighted if Man U can get an upset against Chelsea today, I would think.

    Absolutely, not looking forward to the Liverpool game.

    We're getting decimated.

    Adrian, though.

    4-4.

    Pogba and Martial couldn't give it away more if they tried. Rashford not far behind them.

    Donít think there is that much between 3 - 6. On paper weíve probably got the edge but wouldnít be surprised to see any of them finish in the top 4.

    Plus itís way too early to be making judgements, some are bound to be a little rusty.

    Having said that iím worried about playing City next week. Get it out the way early is probably a good thing.

    Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo said the new rules could "ruin the game".

    "I haven't seen the images but I trust them. If they saw it, what can we do?" he said. "Things that weren't [that way] before shouldn't be now. We have such a nice Premier League, such a product, we cannot lose that.

    "It's what fans come for, to celebrate, not to celebrate a no goal - that's not the real celebration of football. It's not good for the atmosphere of football. The Leicester fans were celebrating the no goal, that's not the mindset of the game.

    "What I'm concerned about is, let's not ruin the game.

    "Two minutes the game stopped. The anxiety of us celebrating, then we waited - it's not the spirit of the game."

    Oh dear Chelsea.

    Certainly flatters Utd though.

    Get in.

    Very flattering though, but I'm not bothered about that.
