The 2007/8 season of the English Premier League (EPL) has started and what a weekend we were treated to. Sunderland begin their season on a high when Michael Chopra grabbed a late winner against Tottenham giving Roy Keane his first victory as Manager in the EPL.
Title challengers Arsenal and Liverpool can count themselves fortunate not to share points with their opponents as they each made their own respective comebacks with late goals to claim 3 points. Meanwhile Chelsea exchanged blows with Birmingham before prevailing 3-2 and claim their customary 3 points. Premiership Champions Manchester United could only secure a Home Draw with bogey team Reading, thus began their title defence with 2 points dropped.
With the season just underway, teams with new additions need time to adjust themselves before they could show their true potential. I do not expect the 2 teams (Newcastle United and Manchester City) currently occupying the top 2 spots to stay long on top as the season picks up. As usual there was alot of drama but none more eventful than Dave Kitson's appearance as a substitute as he only lasted a mere 37 seconds before begin sent off after a wild lunge at Patrick Evra. Jens Lehmann nearly outdo Kitson when he misjudged a back pass and presented Fulham a goal. Fortunately for him, Arsenal managed to make a comeback otherwise Arsene Wenger would've given him a rollocking.
