14-15 Overview: Matchweek 1

Already we have seen a few matches meeting my expectations. Incorrect results finishing in draws only warrant one point and each completely correct pick warrants three points. Correct predictions will be in boldface. Scores would be too difficult for anyone really to anticipate.

United 1-2 Swansea
Leicester 2-2 Everton     
QPR 0-1 Hull    
Stoke 0-1 Villa    
West Brom 2-2 Sunderland  
West Ham 0-1 Spurs        
Arsenal 2-1 Palace  
Liverpool 2-1 Saints     
Newcastle 0-2 City          
Burnley 1-3 Chelsea

That puts me on 24 out of 30 possible points last week. I can earn a total of 380 points. Points are tripled for Cup fixtures and have their own weighting. Considering Fabianski  has taken over the starting job at Swansea, it doesn't surprise me that they won. But given the hype of Van Gaal's arrival got the benefit of the doubt. Stoke are just that pesky team that never goes away and Villa have been see-sawing the past few seasons since Martin O'Neill's departure. Hull needed that win after losing to our boys in the FA Cup final, but Redknapp's men had more momentum carrying in. One set of mstches down, 37 to go.
