Not So Bright Start For Brighton Or Huddersfield

Comments

Manchester United kicked the Premier League season off with a win over Leicester City, and there were six more matches played overnight.

Unfortunately Mat Ryan’s Brighton and Aaron Mooy’s Huddersfield were both on the end of shutout losses.

Overnight Results

Newcastle 1 – 2 Tottenham
Huddersfield 0 – 3 Chelsea
Bournemouth 2 – 0 Cardiff
Watford 2 – 0 Brighton
Fulham 0 – 2 Crystal Palace
Wolves 2 – 2 Everton

Good

Richarlison: The new man scored twice in Everton’s 2-2 draw with Wolves.

Good

The Atmosphere in Wolverhampton: Wolves are a huge club and the fanfare of opening day at Molineux was nothing short of spectacular.

Bad

Aussies: Tough night for both Aaron Mooy and Mat Ryan, whose teams lost by a combined score of 5-0.

Bad

Brighton’s defence: Could be a long season for Mat Ryan if Brighton’s defence is going to be cut apart like that – and we’re talking Watford, not Man City or Spurs.

Good

Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Spurs: Three wins for three London clubs, though Tottenham tottered on the edge a couple of times and you could say they were fortunate to come away with all three points.

Bad

Fulham: They started slowly last season in the Championship and a 2-0 home loss to Crystal Palace isn’t a great Premier League opener.

Good

Roberto Pereyra: Scored a brace to lead Watford to a comprehensive 2-0 home win over Brighton.

Bad

Cardiff City: The Bluebirds are short-priced favourites to be relegated and a first up 2-0 loss to Bournemouth won’t exactly instill confidence in supporters.
