EPL 2014/15: Everton v Leicester City Highlights

Timmy Howard couldn't put on another stunning display like his World Cup efforts this summer.  Leicester, for it's part, made the most of it's first time back in the Premiership in 10yrs as 4 minutes from the final whistle, as Wood latched onto a rebound and put it home.

Final 2-2.

EPL 2014/15: Manchester United v Swansea City Highlights

New line up, new highly touted manager in van Gaal, and a new result.

Swansea scored early Sung-Yeung found the back of the net.  It wasn't until the 2nd half until Man U leveled, and what a level as Rooney pulls a bicycle kick goal from 4m out.

Ex Spur Gylfi said it wasn't over though. Scoring in the 72', he put Swansea back on top, and there it held as the Red Devils looked flat, and executed poorly.

EPL 2014/15: Tottenham v West Ham United Highlights

West Ham always plays Spurs tight and this match was no different.  While many Hammer fans decried the weak attacking lineup for West Ham, Spurs gave them hope with an early harsh red in the box as Naughton was called for a handball in what should have been a no call as the shot was going over and it was a reactionary block.

That said, West Ham beat the Lloris on the ensuing pk, but also beat the inside of the goal as Noble fired just wide.

With nearly 30mins of man advantage, West Ham couldn't make a thing of it and then managed to get one of their own sent off as Collins got a 2nd yellow and their meager advantage trailed away.

In the final seconds of injury time, it wasn't Ade, nor any attacking player for Spurs for that matter, but U21 England international and new signing, left back Eric Dier that wove through the back line, collected a sweet through ball, and netted the winner from the edge of the box.  Final, 1-0 Spurs.

EPL 2014/15: Arsenal v Crystal Palace Highlights

And we're back for a new season!

Crystal Palace struck first, and until the waning seconds of the first half, it looked like Arsenal was going to pull a Brazil and dominate possession but still lose.  76% possession for the Gunners, and it wasn't until Puncheon saw a 2nd yellow for CP that Arsenal managed to sneak away with what should have been a runaway win.  2-1 the final.
