2020/21 Premier League - Matchday 1 Review & Highlights - Liverpool, Tottenham, Arsenal & More

The 2020-21 season of Premier League got underway just 48 days after the last campaign ended. Matchday 1 turned out to be entertaining as we saw newly promoted clubs, new players dawing new jersey’s create some thrilling moments in England’s top tier competition.

Liverpool vs Leeds United


The newly-promoted club, Leeds United began their top-flight campaign in 16 years against the reigning champions Liverpool. It was an unexpected thriller as Marcelo Bielsa’s boys equalised three times before Mohamed Salah’s hat-trick-sealing 87th-minute penalty which averted in a 4-3 result. Liverpool clinched their first 3 points and that is all what matters. Salah also became the first Liverpool player to score a hat-trick on the opening day of the Premier League and to score in every opening match from the past 4 seasons. But Leeds United have definitely created an early impact showing the tpclubs that they are just not here to stay.

West Ham vs Newcastle United


While at one corner Mike Ashley is going against Premier League for their 300 million pound takeover collapse against the Saudi Owners, the Magpies earned their first 3 points of the season. The signings of Callum Wilson, Jeff Hendrick, Jamal Lewis and Ryan Fraser seem shrewd bits of business as the defeated ‘The Hammers’ 2-0

Leicester City vs West Brom


Another newly-promoted club West Brom made a comeback in the English top-flight but only to just take a 3-0 loss against Leicester City. Jamie Vardy grabbed two Leicester goals in the win and looks ready for another Golden boot race.

Tottenham vs Everton


Everton played an impressive attacking game against Tottenham Hotspur. The newly recruited James Rodriguez and Allan created a good first impression and something in me just tells that Everton can finish in the top 6 this season. ‘The Special One’, Jose Mourinho was full of excuses after the 1-0 loss and lashed out at his players for being ‘Lazy’. The Portuguese said he “did not like his team” and they lacked intensity, and also had a dig at the officiating.


Highlights | Liverpool 4-3 Leeds United | 2020/21 Premier League


The Gunners dominate over Fulham!

On Saturday Arsenal beat Fulham 3-0 at their own home ground. Both of these clubs have faced each other 29 times out of which arsenal has won 21 and Fulham has won 3.

Alexandre Lacazette scored the opening goal within the first 10 minutes of the match. Next, Gabriel Magalhães scored a goal in the early minutes of the second half and less than 10 minutes later Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored another one!

Arsenal dictated this game with almost 55% possession and more than 625 passes in the whole game. They also had 13 shots out of which 6 were on target.

They are currently on the top of the table by goal difference. Will Arsenal mange to maintain the top position?


Also to note the fact that Willian who was signed by Arsenal this season from Chelsea provided all 3 assists and the team looked balanced compared to the previous season. Mikel Arteta has to give something for the Gunners fans this season.


After doing a business of almost £220 million Frank Lampard’s new look team grabbed their first 3 points of the season. Marquee signings Timo Werner and Kai Havertz made their Premier League debut and were very impactful.

Werner, in particular, was lively on his first competitive Chelsea appearance and won a penalty in the 21st minute. But still, the main concern remainsKepa Arrizabalaga’s ability to deal with long-range strikes. As it was once again called into question when Leandro Trossard (54) fired home a screamer. Chelsea won the match with a scroline of 3-1 while Brighton will feel like they deserved something from the encounter.
