Bernard's early goal handed Everton a first English Premier League victory of the season as Watford's miserable run at Goodison Park was extended with a 1-0 loss on Saturday. The Brazilian winger ran onto a long ball forward, cut inside and shot inside the near post in the 10th minute as Everton capitalized on a lively start. Craig Dawson headed against the crossbar in the first half while Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford was struck in the face after Troy Deeney had gone through one-on-one just before the hour mark, but Watford was unable to mount any sustained pressure in the later stages.
At long last, Chelsea, and Frank Lampard, are coming home. After 12 consecutive games away from the Bridge — the last league game of last season, the charity friendly in the USA, the Europa League final, all 7 preseason friendlies, and the first 2 games of the new season — Chelsea are coming home. In his first ever match as manager at Stamford Bridge, Lampard's Chelsea get to take on Leicester City, who, incidentally, were the team that started the 12-match away streak. It finished 0-0 at the King Power back on the sunny May afternoon, now both teams will be looking to do better. The N'Golo Kanté-led 2015-16 Champions have ambitions of the top six, and have the talent to make those ambitions

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang hit the winning goal for the second time in a week as Arsenal beat Burnley to make it two victories from two in the Premier League. The Gunners won 1-0 at Newcastle on the opening weekend courtesy of an Aubameyang strike and he proved the difference again as Burnley were beaten 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium. Fit-again Alexandre Lacazette had given the hosts the lead, only for Ashley Barnes to snaffle away his third of the campaign to send the teams in level at the break. Aubameyang then struck the decisive goal in the 64th minute on an afternoon where David Luiz made his Gunners debut and loan signing Dani Ceballos starred on his first start. All the action, as it happened,

The most expensive transfer being was that of Harry Maguire who moved from Leicester to Manchester United for a reported £80 million fee. In this article we will be looking at the five best signings of the window. Before we begin, it is important to note that we are not ranking these in any particular order.

There's always 'that one that got away'…that player that couldn't agree personal terms or was tempted elsewhere at the last minute. 1) Zinedine Zidane to Blackburn Rovers Back in 1995, champions Blackburn Rovers were looking to bolster their squad ahead of the new season. The 50-goal strike force of Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton that drove Rovers to their first Premier League title required a better supply line, according to manager Kenny Dalglish. Dalglish wanted Zinedine Zidane. The 23-year-old was in Bordeaux, gliding across the pitch in a style we would soon recognise on his way to three league titles, a Champions League, a European Championship and the World Cup. When Dalglish inquired whether
