The Barclays Premier league kicked off this weekend. Everyone is waiting to see if the drama from last year can be matched. Spoiler alert: there is absolutely no way that it can be matched. They’ll play the matches anyway.
Here are some of the best goals from the opening weekend to cope with that depressing fact.
The West Bromwich Albion fan favorite rocketed in this blast from distance against Liverpool’s Pepe Reina, the first tally in what would become a 3-0 laugher at the Hawthorns. The Reds wasted no time rounding into depressing midseason form.
Newcastle’s main man executed a slick volley to get the Magpies on the board against Tottenham. They’d go onto win, 2-1.
Dude wasted no time welcoming himself to Swansea City with this masterpiece. It was the first of his two goals in a 5-0 rout over QPR.
