Top-10 Performers of the Premier League Opener


Which players impressed during the opening weekend

The Premier League returned over the weekend and as usual it made for exciting viewing.

The campaign got underway on Saturday lunch-time with Manchester United hosting Tottenham Hotspur, before reigning champions Chelsea hosted Swansea City in the evening.

Sunday saw three games take place, including Arsenal taking on West Ham United and Liverpool returning to the Britannia Stadium just months after their 6-1 mauling.

There is one remaining game to play in the opening weekend tonight which sees West Bromwich Albion take on Manchester City, but SillySeason are going to identify their top-10 performers from over the weekend.

So which players stood out for us during the opening weekend?

It’s time to find out!

10) Matteo Darmian


Our first player to impress was Manchester United summer signing Matteo Darmian.

Even though Louis Van Gaal said the young Italian would be back-up to Antonio Valencia throughout the season, Darmian started against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday and put in a great display for his Premier League debut.

The right-back looked comfortable on the ball and under pressure, whilst also providing options on the attack and also whilst defending.

A solid debut from the former-Torino star and maybe a showing of what’s to come from the right-back.

Van Gaal may have to rethink who is number-one full-back is especially after this performance.
