English Premier League: Chelsea, Tottenham dispel doubts with winning starts

The Premier League 2018/19 season preview

'My view is that first of all it's hard for me to believe we finished second, ' said Mourinho of last season.

Mourinho had warned it would be a "difficult season" if United did not make any more acquisitions and it now looks like his side will miss out.

Newly-promoted Fulham became the first promoted team to spend over 100 million pounds in the summer transfer window.

The new Premier League campaign kicks off again with Manchester City aiming to retain their dominance, while promoted clubs Wolves, Cardiff and Fulham will all be out to hold their own. It provides them the opportunity to approach players in the Premier League like they've never been able to before - it's quite intriguing really.

Although there has been speculation about a deal for Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld, there has been no offer from United while Leicester remain determined to retain England global Harry Maguire, who has four years left on his contract.

One game into the season and we've already had two collectors' items - a Luke Shaw goal and a happy Jose.

A rumoured switch that has rumbled on as much as Jose Mourinho's whinging is Matteo Darmian's proposed move away from Manchester United this summer, with Inter reportedly the most interested party. He played a vital role in Leicester City's historic title glory and although he is yet to feature in an official match f0r Man City, there is no doubt that he will make City's attack absolutely ruthless.

Cardiff City also tasted defeat on their return to the elite - midfielder Ryan Fraser's first-half goal and forward Callum Wilson's late strike securing the three points for Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.

"For sure, in this moment, we are not at the top of our potential".

"The Premier League is always hard and the teams are very strong".

"It has been a strength of his to be fair but when it goes wrong it tends to go wrong spectacularly and you could see it second time around at Chelsea".

"We could be the unluckiest side this season but it doesn't actually mean anything in the grand scheme of things".

"Forget about Liverpool's spending, because of course they have spent a lot, but last season they were a top team as well".

The clubs have not met since 2012 and the "Midlanders" have undergone major surgery since boss Nuno Espirito Santos was appointed last summer, and Everton defender Seamus Coleman insisted that his side must be "quick out of the blocks" to get the better of their hosts.

Paul added: "When there is a flow to the game, referees get swept up in the game".

Who pulled off the result of the weekend in the Premier League?

"If you have a build-up of anticipation and atmosphere you can psychologically get in referees' heads". I think he would.
