MANCHESTER---One round of
Premier League games has
already backed up many pun-
dits pre-season predictions,
notably that Chelsea and Man-
chester City are title favourites
and Manchester United needed
more than just a change of
manager to arrest its slump.
Strengthened by new attack-
ing signings Diego Costa and
Cesc Fabregas, Chelsea deliv-
ered the best display of the
opening weekend in beating
Burnley 3-1 away and meets
another promoted side, Leices-
ter, in its second match Satur-
City was less eye-catching in
its 2-0 win at Newcastle but
the result served notice that
the defending champions won t be
giving up its title easily. Next up
for City is Liverpool---the team it
pipped to the championship in
May---at home on Monday.
Things aren t looking so prom-
ising for United and its new man-
ager Louis van Gaal, who are look-
ing to avoid a second straight defeat
in an away match at Sunderland.
Here are five things to know
about the upcoming Premier League
Scholes fears for United
Perhaps the most damning
assessment of United following its
2-1 opening-day loss to Swansea
came from its former midfield
maestro, Paul Scholes.
"I am scared for United," Scholes
wrote in yesterday s Independent
newspaper. "Genuinely scared that
they could go into the wilderness
in the same way that Liverpool did
in the 1990s."
After finishing seventh last season
in the turbulent reign of David
Moyes, there was renewed hope at
Old Trafford following the hiring
of the experienced Louis van Gaal
and an unbeaten record in presea-
But the home loss to Swansea
punctured that optimism, high-
lighting the deficiencies that still
exist in the team---a lack of pace
and dynamism in its attack and a
lack of experience in defence.
The signing on Wednesday of
left-sided defender Marcos Rojo
from Sporting Lisbon will help but
there s a general feeling that a
superstar needs to arrive at United
before the summer transfer window
closes if the team is to finish in the
Sunderland started with a 2-2
draw at West Bromwich Albion.
City and Liverpool meet at Etihad
Stadium in the first blockbuster
match of the new season, featuring
the teams who occupied the top
two positions in May.
Both teams started off this season
with victories, although Liverpool s
2-1 win over Southampton was less
convincing and showed the reliance
the Reds will have on Daniel Stur-
ridge in the absence of Luis Suarez.
Sturridge scored the late winner
at Anfield for his 36th goal in his
first 50 league appearances for Liv-
erpool---the best record of any of
the club s list of great strikers in
the Premier League era.
With only Rickie Lambert as a
genuine backup for Sturridge, man-
ager Brendan Rodgers is looking to
add another forward in the transfer
window and Liverpool has been
linked strongly with a move for Italy
striker Mario Balotelli.
A deal for Balotelli would need
to be wrapped up before today
lunchtime in Britain for his first
match for Liverpool to be against
his former club.
With Costa already in the goals,
Fabregas slotting in nicely in midfield
and the defence looking as strong as
ever, there doesn t appear to be a
weakness in Chelsea s team as it goes
for a first championship since 2010.
Most of the plaudits after the
Burnley win went to Fabregas, who
added incisiveness to a Chelsea for-
ward line that let down manager Jose
Mourinho too often last season.
"I think a player like Cesc, every
team wants him," said Chelsea for-
ward Andre Schuerrle, who scored
from one of Fabregas astute pass-
es.Except for maybe Arsenal, which
turned down the option of signing
Fabregas this summer.
Leicester started life back in the
Premier League with a 2-2 draw
against Everton and can expect a long
afternoon of defending at Stamford
Bridge on Saturday.
Tied at 0-0 with Besiktas after the
first leg of its Champions League
playoff, Arsenal s players may have
one eye on Wednesday s return game
when they play Everton on Saturday.
And that could be dangerous for
manager Arsene Wenger, whose team
was blown away 3-0 in the corre-
sponding fixture at Goodison Park
That loss sparked a run of five
straight victories by Arsenal that saw
Wenger s side claim the fourth and
final Champions League spot ahead
Arsenal s trio of German World
Cup winners, Mesut Ozil, Per Merte-
sacker and Lukas Podolski, could be
in line for recalls after missing the
2-1 win over Crystal Palace on Sat-
urday because they lacked match fit-
Palace in turmoil
Crystal Palace s amazing escape
from relegation last season is a distant
memory now after a wretched start
to the new campaign that has seen
the club lose not just its opening
game and but its manager and sport-
Tony Pulis, who led Palace to safety
from a perilous position, stepped
down as manager last week after a
disagreement with co-chairman Steve
And Iain Moody resigned as sport-
ing director yesterday after being
embroiled in an investigation by the
English Football Association into
inappropriate text messages allegedly
sent and received by Moody and then
manager Malky Mackay during their
time at Cardiff.
Palace hosts West Ham on Satur-
day, when it s also: Aston Villa vs
Newcastle, Southampton vs West
Brom; and Swansea vs Burnley.
On Sunday, it s: Tottenham vs
Queens Park Rangers; and Hull vs
