The Premier league is less then week old, and clearly there were a lot of unpredictable results already. Most notable may be the triumph of the newly promoted Burnley, over Manchester United, a remarkable achievement for a club who has not been in the top flight since 1976. Things are not looking too good for Man U though, after the narrow win in the first match, the loss here clearly shows that they have lost their most lethal weapon in attack, their cutting edge by not having Ronaldo.
Second was the 4-0 Liverpool win over Stoke, to come here after the loss in the first match and put a performance of this magnitude takes some doing, highlighting the quality of the team and at the same time the unpredictability.
Most positive result was that of Tottenham’s 5-1 victory over Hull City, what a start to the season for the Tottenham, although it is too early to say, we might just see them giving fight to the last four, as they say well begun is half done.
One predictable result was that of the Chelsea’s 3-1 win over Sunderland, and more importantly showing that there are possibilities of succeeding with the Diamond formation. It was the best we have seen of Deco for sometime and probably this is the best place, top of the diamond, where he can do his bit. The bonus of course was getting Ballack on the scoring sheet, a few more goals and we may see a completely different Ballack, hopefully doing justice to his potential.
