The English Premier League came upon us with a bang and I am sure a large number of us were caught unaware by some of the results of this first round of fixtures. Allow me let you in on my opinion as regards some of the games and going by my predictions of these round of games, you will understand why I was taken aback by some of the results. The Manchester United versus Tottenham Hotspurs game was the Premier League’s opener and the final score was quite of a surprise for me because I predicted a massive victory for United but the lone goal scoreline wasn’t what I hoped for. An own goal by Kyle Walker sealed the 3 points for Manchester United. The Red Devils were far from impressive though I was happy with Matteo Darmian’s performance however, my man of the match on the day was Ashley Young (call me blind, lol).
I didn’t get a lot of predictions right and as a matter of fact 3 out of 10 were correct and no perfect score in terms of actual score prediction. I wouldn’t have thought the Chelsea game against Swansea would have ended in a draw, I didn’t even expect Chelsea to concede a goal let alone draw the game. Swansea held the Blues to a 2-2 draw with the Chelsea goalie Thibaut Courtois getting sent off. An Arsenal loss to Westham would have been a mirage before kick off but the Hammers were determined to steal 3 points from the Emirates Stadium. 3 points Westham wanted, 3 points they got. Not to worry guys my poor prediction in the first round of games will not deter me and I have decided to up the ante by inviting two of my friends to join me. So Slimee, Fletcher (not their real names) and myself are going to act like prophets for game week two.
