The first round of the BPL season did not go as planned for the big teams like Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspurs, and Arsenal. Arsenal with a 2-0 loss to West Ham and an un-impressing performance by the two other teams.

Manchester United faced the Hotspurs and came out with a 1-0 victory by an own goal. It was a poor performance by both teams, but Kyle Walker is the one to blame after scoring an own goal and losing possession of the ball in a more than humiliating way.

It was an exciting start to the game with Christian Eriksen almost scoring early in the game. The game eventually slowed down and fans started to get frustrated with the Red Devils until they got a shot on goal in the 65th minute, but the game came to a close with the own goal by Walker. The beginning of the season hasn’t been looking to bright for the Big teams, and by the way things are going, it might turn into a very different season.

Even if you didn’t watch the Arsenal vs West Ham game you hear about the terrible performance of newly signed goalkeeper Peter Cech. Peter Cech publicly announced his opinion on his performance on social media saying, “First game like this was not in the script – Mistake and no points   but tomorrow is another day to get ready for the next game.” The former Chelsea goalkeeper has been known all around the world as one of the best goalkeepers in the world during his prime, but has age gotten the best of him.

In more exciting news Yaya Toure scored two of the three goals Manchester City scored over West Bromwich. Toure got man of the match and player of the day in most peoples books for his outstanding performance and clinical finishing outside the box. Manchester City has always been consistent teams, who are always great competitors and come out on the top of the leaderboards.

Who do you think is going to come out on top this year during the 2015 BPL season? After seeing the performance of the different teams it seems that this year is very uncertain as to who will get first place. The good news is that it will be a chance for under dogs to have a chance at the title, but the bad news is the BPL might turn out to be slow or rather boring this year.

No one can know until the end of the season, but please leave your input down below in the comment section and if you liked the article please like and share the page. Thank you!
