The Premier League got back in action today, and now that the final whistle has blown we're going to recap the day's action for you. I'm going to link to several match reports from other team blogs, but do not take that as an invitation to troll at those sites. Be respectful if you comment there, feel free to express your feelings here. Now on to the games:
- Arsenal 0 - Sunderland 0: Arsenal started the post RvP/Alex Song era with a scoreless draw. There were certainly positives to be taken from this for Arsenal (Santi Cazorla looked very good), but it might be another rough start to the season. Head over to The Short Fuse or The Roker Report for each team's perspective on the result.
That was day 1 of what will be a long and entertaining season, and things went very well indeed for Chelsea fans. Only Newcastle took 3 points of the clubs that will likely be competing for Champions League places, so Chelsea have a great chance to gain some early breathing room as those clubs look to sort their transfer activity. Chelsea will open their season tomorrow, and we'll have much more for you then. I'd highly recommend checking out all of the linked recaps, but once again, be nice. We hate when people come here and troll, so treat others like you'd want to be treated.
