English Premier League – Matchweek 2 Review

By  Football Pulp - 24 August 2016

Matchweek 2 proved to be another exciting week in the English Premier League. In case you missed all the live action, let’s reminisce some of the best moments from Matchweek 2. 

Manchester United 2 – 0 Southampton

Zlatan once again stole the show by scoring a brace, serving Red Devils their second straight win in the league. He now has 3 goals in his last two outings. Also, Paul Pogba made his home debut.


Stoke City 1 – 4 Manchester City

A fixture that always had a tough call for Manchester City, did not prove to be as intense, thanks to efforts by Aguero and Nolito who helped the contenders seal a comfortable victory.


Burnley 2 – 0 Liverpool

This was a disastrous saga for the Jurgen Klopp side as they were unable to live up to the previously set standards and were derailed by a low-profile side, despite holding 81% of possession.


Swansea City 0 – 2 Hull City

Hull City equalized the record set by Bolton Wonderers and became the second newly promoted side in the EPL history to win their opening two fixtures.


Tottenham Hotspur 1 – 0 Crystal Palace

Victor Wanyama scored his first goal for Spurs and what a moment it was. A late winner gave Spurs the lead, which served them their first win of the season at White Hart Lane. 


Watford 1 – 2 Chelsea

An impressive display from Cesc Fabregas and a late winner from Diego Costa helped Chelsea continue their winning streak under the new manager, Antonio Conte.


West Bromwich Albion 1 – 2 Everton

A winner from Gareth Barry in the 60th minute helped Everton sail past the challenge posed by West Bromwich Albion and helped them register their first win of the season.


Leicester City 0 – 0 Arsenal

Unexpectedly, a dull encounter between the last time champions and runner-ups, with no goals, disappointed the fans. A poor start of the season for both Leicester and Arsenal.


Sunderland 1 – 2 Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough sealed a comfortable victory over their North East Rivals after two amazing strikes from Cristhian Stuani. David Moyes is still in search of his first win after becoming Sunderland’s manager.


West Ham United 1 – 0 AFC Bournemouth

Michail Antonio became the first goal scorer at the London Stadium and his goal earned the Hammers their first win of the season.
