The Premier League is finally back! The opening day threw up plenty of interesting things to think about. Let’s look at the most important results from first day of race to English title.

Manchester United's victory against Spurs

We began our tour with the match between Manchester United and Tottenham Hospur. Red Devils started new season with the 1-0 victory at Old Trafford. However, Louis van Gaal’s side needed a Kyle Walker own goal to claim all the points in a game. Tottenham had his chances, but new Manchester’s goalie – Sergio Romero played really impressive game today. A draw would have been more than Spurs deserved for their afternoon’s effort, while United made up for losing at home to Swansea on the opening day of the last season with this narrow victory.

Everton 2-2 Watford

Next we moved to Goodison Park where Everton hosted Watford. Substitute Arouna Kone’s late goal earned Everton a 2-2 draw against Watford. However The Hornets played great first half and they proved they belong to the Premier League standards. Everton had the better of the battle for possession in the early minutes, but struggled to break through Watford defence. Finally The Hornets silenced Goodison Park when they scored the first goal. The home side answered twice as they rescued a late point.

Chelsea dropped points

In the final game of the day, Chelsea began their title defence with a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge against Swansea. The Blues seemed set for victory after goals by Oscar and Willian, but Andrew Ayew found answer for home side goals.

Top Videos of the Day

In 52th minute Courtois was sent off after denying Bafetimbi Gomis a clear goalscoring opportunity. The striker then equalized past substitute keeper Asmir Begovic. The red card for the Belgian goalkeeper means that he will miss a crunch contest with Manchester City next weekend. Chelsea have won 14 and lost none of their last 17 Premier League fixtures on the first day of the season. The Blues haven’t lost a season opener since game in 1998/99 against Coventry City.
