Everton 1 Man Utd 0

The hair bear strikes again!

Fellaini strike defeats United

If the Premier League season ended now, Fulham would win the title, Swansea and West Brom would be playing Champions League football and Liverpool would be relegated.

There is only one game gone though and what a dramatic opening weekend it has been. How much you can read into the last three days remains to be seen, but one thing seems certain - we are in for a fantastic few months of top flight action.

The Monday Night Football fixture between Everton and Manchester United highligted this. All the talk prior to the game was about the away side and their new signings - particularly Robin Van Persie - but afterwards it was all about Everton.

The Toffees were excellent from start to finish. Largely thanks to Marouane Fellaini, they were a constant threat going forward and at the back they were colossal. Whatever United threw at them, they responded to.

If the game had been decided on possession, it was United that would have taken a comfortable victory. However, Everton did more with the ball when they had it and admirably defended the Red Devils onslaught in the latter stages.

Van Persie came on with around 20 minutes to go, but he couldn't help his new team get the equaliser. He will get his time though and United will be well in the mix for the title, no doubt about that.

It was perhaps a fitting end to this opening weekend that United were defeated. With this in mind, it is worth having a look back at some of the key moments from the last few days.

Performance of the weekend

Without a doubt Swansea City. They were superb on the opening day, defeating Queens Park Rangers - who have spent a lot of money this summer - 5-0. They hit the hosts on the counter attack superbly and displayed some of the slick attacking football that was on show regularly last season, even without Brendan Rodgers.

Shock of the weekend

This is a slightly difficult one as there are a few to choose from, but West Brom hammering Liverpool has to be the one. It was perhaps a possibility that the Baggies would beat Liverpool, but 3-0? This result cause a few raised eyebrows, no doubt about that.

Player of the weekend

Eden Hazard of Chelsea is a close second, but this is going to Fellani of Everton. He terrorised Manchester United for the entire game and deservedly scored the winner. He is a top class midfielder and a fans favourite. Everton have done well to hold onto him and he can help them go from strength to strength.

Overall, the Premier League is back and everyone is loving it already. There are set to be another enthralling few weeks in this tremendous league and the table might just change a bit as we go on.
