While Arsenal kicked off their season with a 1-0 win against Newcastle at the St. James Park thanks to a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang second half strike, Leicester and Wolves played out an entertaining 0-0 draw.
The big show was saved for last as Frank Lampard’s Chelsea travelled to Old Trafford to play Manchester United.
It was Marcus Rashford that grabbed the headline with two goals for the Red Devil with Anthony Martial and David James scoring one each to give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side an emphatic 4-0 victory.
