As it happened

  1. 2000: 

    Michael Laudrup has evaded the cameras for now it seems - so I bid you good evening.

    Don't forget to catch up on anything you missed by reading all our reports, and catch MOTD at 2230 BST on BBC One, BBC One HD and online. I'll see you tomorrow for the Special One...

  2. 1952: 

    David Moyes was in a very chipper mood as he spoke to BBC Match of the Day's Steve Wilson - and why not? A fine debut for the new United boss. We're still waiting to hear from Michael Laudrup...

  3. 1951: 
    MOTD ORDER

    It's a big moment in any football fan's Saturday night - the Match of the Day running order.

    Fulham fans - don't rush home from the boozer. Here it is:

    MOTD at 2230 BST: 1.Swansea/ManUtd, 2.Arsenal/Villa, 3.Norwich/Everton, 4.Liverpool/Stoke, 5.West Ham/Cardiff, 6.WBA/Saints, 7.Sunderland/Fulham

    GET INVOLVED

    KM in Coventry via text: Both goals, nobody celebrated with Rooney! Very noticeable as he was involved in both. End of the road I feel for Rooney.

  5. 1947: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Swansea 1-4 Man Utd
    David Moyes

    Manchester United manager David Moyes tells BBC Sport: "It very much was a Manchester United display. We were clinical in attack and I am very pleased.

    "This is a tough place to come and we won well in the end.

    "Today was my first game at Manchester United, I was excited but it's just work to me, it's the same as I've done at Everton over the last 10 years or so.

    "Robin van Persie scored two brilliant goals. When he pulls the trigger it's a goal all the way."

  6. 1944: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Okon Isong: Rooney has to step up because Welbeck and RVP were sheer class today.

    Mark Woods: Everyone saying that this isn't Moyes's team, what else can he do in such a short time at the club!

    Zenas Swoosh Ansah: So Wayne Rooney comes on and gets two assists. This is why we are not selling him!

  7. 1942: 

    Worryingly for Premier League goalkeepers, Robin van Persie says he "is not really a chip man" so is going to try and learn from Danny Welbeck. If Van Persie adds any more weaponry to his game it will be bordering on unfair...

  8. 1938: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Grant Cohen: Swansea away is a tough fixture! A 4-1 scoreline will be shown to be exceptional later on in the season! Great start.

    Hayley Barton: Anyone still predicting #mufc for 4th? With a new centre midfielder to hopefully still add, write us off at your peril.

    Peter Tickle: Think Rooney has just highlighted why we can't sell him to Chelsea. Uninterested and unfit and still 2 assists!

  9. 1937: 
    PLAYER REACTION- Swansea 1-4 Man Utd

    Manchester United striker Robin van Persie: "We are very happy. To play against Swansea away from home is tough. It's tough. I love the way they play but it's hard to play against.

    "Swansea were better than us for the first 20 minutes or so but the goal changed the game. It was one of the best goals I have scored with my right foot. But the fourth goal from Danny Welbeck was unbelievable"

  10. 1933: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Shaun Smith: The real test for Moyes will be in 2 years' time when he has to make a team of his own. Today's team was Fergie's.

    Matthew Doherty: Absolutely superb start by Moyes, I expect Swansea to be right up there this season.

    Wayne Rooney comes on

    Stuart Mitchell: Bet Rooney is regretting that assist. RVP and Welbeck have emphatically told Rooney he can leave if he wants.

  11. 1931: 
    GET INVOLVED

    James via text: Wayne Rooney two assists in 20 mins, still class.

  12. 1928: 

    Day one of the Premier League - done.

  13. 1925:  
    BBC Sport Chief Football Writer Phil McNulty at the LibertySwansea 1-4 Man Utd

    "Business as usual despite the change of manager. Not a glittering Manchester United performance but won by moments of quality quite simply beyond the compass of their opponents.

    "Whatever Wayne Rooney's fate, Robin van Persie has quickly proved that he will be United's main man again this season."

  14. 1923: 
    Swansea 1-4 Man Utd

    Job done for David Moyes. Let's get ready for him to be asked about Wayne Rooney throughout his post-match media duties though...

  15. 1922: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Chris Harvey: Told you Danny Welbeck was class didn't I?

    Chris Cowan: After 90 minutes of the new season, Danny Welbeck doubles his last seasons tally.

    Danny Welbeck

    Dom: What a finish from Wellbeck! Rooney doesn't look happy though...

  16. 1922: 
    FULL-TIME- Swansea 1-4 Man Utd
  17. 1921: 
    Swansea 1-4 Man Utd

    Wayne Rooney was caught late as he played that pass through which may account for his moody look. Fine play from him in the build-up though.

  18. 1919: 
    GOAL- Swansea 1-4 Man Utd - Danny Welbeck (90 mins)

    Another gem of a goal! It's an assist for Wayne Rooney as well, as he drops into the hole, turns, beats a man and stabs a pass through for Danny Welbeck. He has plenty to do but selects the lob wedge from his bag and dinks a delicate chip over the head of Michel Vorm and into the net. Wonderful touch.

  19. 1917: 
    Swansea 1-3 Man Utd

    Anderson appears to have found the weight Phil Dowd has lost. It's walking pace stuff now as we tick toward the whistle.

  20. 1913: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Swansea 1-3 Man Utd

    Robin van Persie - the matchwinner yet again for Manchester United - is rested for the dying stages as Anderson comes on in midfield.

  21. 1913: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Matt Holford: On the contrary to the previous tweets, Rooney is chasing and working hard for the team, he may have started to settle.

  22. 1912: 
    FINAL FIVE- Swansea 1-3 Man Utd

    Into the last five minutes or so now.

  23. 1911: 
    Swansea 1-3 Man Utd

    David Moyes will not be happy with the manner in which his side conceded that goal, it's probably put the dampener on his day. Slack play from Danny Welbeck.

    Wayne Rooney then almost gets free at the other end but Patrice Evra dillies and dallies and doesn't get the pass away. He is not impressed.

  24. 1909: 
    GOAL- Swansea 1-3 Man Utd - Wilfried Bony (82 mins)

    But it doesn't take Wilfried Bony long to register that first league goal for the Swans! Danny Welbeck is guilty of overplaying 20 yards from goal, he tries a backheel which is anticipated by Pablo Hernandez, who then picks out Bony 15 yards out and he steers home first-time.

  25. 1908: 
    CLOSE!- Swansea 0-3 Man Utd

    AH, real chance for Wilfried Bony to open his Premier League account! He should score really, escaping the United defence to reach Jonjo Shelvey's cross but nodding wide from seven yards.

  26. 1907: 
    GET INVOLVED

    David McW: How can Rooney complain about being 2nd choice striker when RVP bangs them in like that?

    Jonathan McGarth: Don't worry Moyes, RVP is looking after it

    Robin van Persie

    Michael Kerr: Unreal finish but spare a thought for Wayne Rooney's run!

  27. 1905: 
    Swansea 0-3 Man Utd

    You have to see this is an impressive league opener for David Moyes. Many tipped a struggle for them this afternoon but from the moment Robin van Persie opened the scoring it's been in the bag. Van Persie is in the hunt for a treble as he orchestrates a flowing move down the left but Patrice Evra has strayed offside.

  28. 1903: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Swansea 0-3 Man Utd

    The away end rocks to the strains of Slade as Manchester United's fans celebrate a very comfortable day at the office.

    Swansea boss Michael Laudrup replaces Jose Canas with Ki Sung-yueng.

  29. 1901: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Jack Blackburn: Watching Rooney play for #MUFC is awkward: a bit like a dinner party hosted by dear friends whose marriage is on the rocks.

    Khael Malik: Rooney doesn't exactly have the most positive body language, does he?

  30. 1859: 
    GOAL- Swansea 0-3 Man Utd - Robin van Persie (72 mins)

    Unstoppable! Just a fabulous goal from Robin van Persie, who ominously has already got four goals this season. It's a solo effort, running at a retreating backline, ignoring the runs of Danny Welbeck and Wayne Rooney before thumping a left-footed shot into the roof of the net. Bang.

  31. 1857: 
    CLOSE!- Swansea 0-2 Man Utd

    But this is more like it from the Swans. Jonjo Shelvey starts an attack from deep by going on a driving run and his clever pass doesn't quite pick out Michu breaking into the box. Pablo Hernandez then picks out a cross from the left which Angel Rangel smashes across goal, inches wide.

  32. 1857:  
    BBC Sport Chief Football Writer Phil McNulty at the LibertySwansea 0-2 Man Utd

    "Wayne Rooney's arrival has seen the unselfish Danny Welbeck pulled to the left allowing the unsettled substitute to move up into close proximity with Robin van Persie. It is a change that gives United a more positive look but this game now feels as it is moving towards an inevitable conclusion - except perhaps for the chance to Rooney to make his mark."

  33. 1855: 
    CLOSE!- Swansea 0-2 Man Utd

    A strange, subdued atmosphere at the Liberty Stadium now, with bots sets of fans seemingly happy to call it a day at 2-0. Wayne Rooney wins a corner and it's almost three, as Patrice Evra sees his header cleared off the line by Jose Canas.

  34. 1853: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Shane McMenemy: Come on now, Wayne. RvP and Welbeck have scored. Earn your place.

  35. 1853: 
    Swansea 0-2 Man Utd

    Wayne Rooney has settled into a position right up front with Robin van Persie, with Danny Welbeck drifting over to the left. And Welbeck then breaks away in a three-on-three counter but Rooney is offside and the move breaks down.

    We are into the last 20 minutes or so.

  36. 1849: 
    Swansea 0-2 Man Utd

    Angel Rangel stands up a cross from the right, Rio Ferdinand beats Wilfried Bony to the header and Pablo Hernandez fires a shot on the volley wide. The most tentative of penalty appeals from Bony, who was just outmuscled by Ferdinand. Good defending.

  37. 1848: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Swansea 0-2 Man Utd

    Here he is - Wayne Rooney is on for Manchester United in place of Ryan Giggs.

  38. 1847: 
    CLOSE!- Swansea 0-2 Man Utd

    David Moyes appeared to be giving Wayne Rooney some instructions on his return to the dugout, looks like the number 10 will be on the pitch soon. Oh, and it's nearly three with United's first real attack of the second half, Robin van Persie getting in behind but firing across the face of goal.

  39. 1846:  
    BBC Sport Chief Football Writer Phil McNulty at the LibertySwansea 0-2 Man Utd

    "Wayne Rooney has just warmed up to loud jeers - but they came from the Swansea fans. Manchester United's followers actually chanted the unsettled striker's name and many also applauded. No show of hostility."

  40. 1846: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Sean Whittall: End of Fergie's tenure and the beginning of Moyes' reign? This is very much Fergie's team still. Moyes needs to make it his own.

    Chris Jones: Is there a greyer frontline in the Premier League than Van Persie and Giggs? Class is clearly permanent.

    Max Wattz: Shelvey is really trying Gerrard-esque passes but no avail. Should just stick to Swansea's short passes

  41. 1845: 
    Swansea 0-2 Man Utd

    Wayne Rooney receives a mixed response from the crowd as he warms up, but I've no way of telling what the response from the Manchester United fans was. We are into the last half hour and the tempo has noticeably dropped.

  42. 1842: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Ross Pearson in Ballymena via text: Give me Welbeck over Benteke any day. Class act.

    Richard in Cheshire via text: A new era but the same knowhow and winning mentality. Replacing Scholes and Giggs will not be an easy task. Their kind do not come along too often!

  43. 1840: 
    Swansea 0-2 Man Utd

    There's that link-up play! Wilfried Bony rises above his defender to head down into Michu's path and he is foiled by David de Gea's brave save. It's a corner, but De Gea needs some treatment first. He'll be fine.

  44. 1838: 
    GET INVOLVED

    The Premier League is under way in typically dramatic fashion, with goals aplenty across all of the leagues. So, what's your #resultoftheday?

    Davod Greig: Aston Villa down 1-0 to arsenal early in the game at the emirates and come back to win 3-1 is a great turnaround.

    Matthew Shaw: Wolves winning again! 2-1 against Bristol City. Scored 6 minutes before 90 mins.

    Jon Jenkins: Bournemouth beating Wigan awesome comeback after last weeks drubbing. Well done.

  45. 1837: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Swansea 0-2 Man Utd

    And it's from that deeper role that Michu tests David de Gea, firing in an early shot from 25 yards which dips just in front of the Manchester United keeper, forcing him to shovel it to one side. Wilfried Bony is almost in on the loose ball but De Gea gathers it in.

  46. 1835: 
    Swansea 0-2 Man Utd

    Wilfried Bony makes a smart dart to the near post but can't get to the cross ahead of Rio Ferdinand, with the big Swansea striker hoping to make an immediate impact up front. His arrival means that Michu is now operating in his preferred role just off the striker.

  47. 1835: 
    LEAGUE TWO

    Oxford United are top of the fledgling League Two table thanks to a 3-1 win away to Torquay. Southend join them on nine points following their 2-0 victory over Northampton.

    Burton held on to beat Fleetwood 3-2 after taking a 3-0 lead within 34 minutes, while Portsmouth beat Morecambe 3-0 and Bury saw off James Beattie's Accrington by the same scoreline.

    Five teams have only one point from their opening five games, including Accrington and Cheltenham, who lost 3-1 at home to Plymouth.

  48. 1833: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Lee Whittaker: Decent first half! Still think Zaha should have started over Giggs. That Canas looks a real busy player as well

    Tom Holmes: Very good ball from Valencia for Welbeck's goal but all the deserved plaudits go to RVP. United look shaky at the back though.

    Matthew Ryan: RVP and Welbeck off to a good start this season. Wayne who?

  49. 1833: 
    LEAGUE ONE

    In League One, Coventry are up to minus four points following a 4-0 victory at Carlisle. Two teams have nine points after three games, with Leyton Orient beating Stevenage 1-0 to go top on goal difference over Peterborough, who beat Oldham 2-1.

    Wolves remain unbeaten in the league so far thanks to a 2-1 victory over Bristol City.

    Carlisle and Stevenage are still without a point following their defeats, while relegated Bristol City have just one.

  50. 1832: 
    KICK-OFF- Swansea 0-2 Man Utd

    And we are back under way.

  51. 1831: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Swansea 0-2 Man Utd

    It's a double change for the hosts in fact, with record signing Wilfried Bony and winger Pablo Hernandez on in place of Wayne Routledge and Leon Britton. Can they turn the tide?

  52. 1830: 
    Swansea 0-2 Man Utd

    Here come the sides for the second half - it looks like Wilfried Bony is coming on.

  53. 1830: 

    Arsenal fans perhaps not need to be too disheartened at not winning on the opening day of the season. On the first match day of the previous 21 Premier League seasons, the eventual champions have won 12 times, had six draws and lost three times. The overall win % of champions on the opening day of the season is therefore 57%, which compares with an average 67% win ratio across the entire season for Premier League champions.

  54. 1825: 
    ENDING THE DROUGHT- Swansea 0-2 Man Utd
    Danny Welbeck

    A goal for England in midweek, a goal today - it's been a good few days for Danny Welbeck.

    His tap-in this afternoon has ended a run of 19 Premier League appearances without scoring, his first goal in the league since 20 October 2012 and his first away from home since 22 March 2012.

  55. 1819: 
    Swansea 0-2 Man Utd

    David Moyes could be forgiven for thinking that managing Manchester United is easy so far. He won the Community Shield last weekend despite his side not being at their best, with Robin van Persie scoring the crucial goals, and six days later he's well on his way to a winning start in the league.

    They've not been at their best perhaps, but Robin van Persie - you know the rest...

  56. 1819: 
    GET INVOLVED

    The Premier League is under way in typically dramatic fashion, with goals aplenty across all of the leagues. So, what's your #resultoftheday?

    Russell Reynolds: Watford 2-0 down, come back with late equalizer to make it 3-3.

    James Clarke: Liverpool 1 - Stoke 0: Great start to the season, carrying on last season's form with some great signing's. Top 4?

    James Harries: Plymouth Argyle ending Cheltenham's 22-game unbeaten home record with 3-1 win.

    You can join in by listening to the show on your radio or online.

  58. 1817: 
    HALF-TIME- Swansea 0-2 Man Utd

    A statement of intent from the defending champions, with two goals in as many minutes. Can Swansea salvage anything from this?

  59. 1817: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Daniel Tinkler: New manager, same killer instinct. To be fair, it's still Fergie's team.

    Chris Harvey: Danny Welbeck is a class act....made for tight games like this. Expect him to prove it this season.

    James: Williams poor at organising Swansea's back line. Overall play by Swans is positive and unlucky to be two down

  60. 1814: 
    YELLOW CARD- Swansea 0-2 Man Utd

    The cards keep coming from the new-look, slimline Phil Dowd. Tom Cleverley leaves the red with no option though, charging into Angel Rangel. The rain is teeming down now as we approach the break.

  61. 1813:  
    BBC Sport Chief Football Writer Phil McNulty at the LibertySwansea 0-2 Man Utd

    "Wayne Rooney sits disconsolately on the bench as Manchester United prove they still pack a punch without him. Swansea's game plan was working well until they slipped in those crucial moments. The sting has now gone out of their approach and this could be ominous as United start to exploit the sort of possession they were not allowed early on.

    "Danny Welbeck has been filling the Rooney role working alongside and in behind Robin van Persie and both have been rewarded with goals."

  62. 1812: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Sam via text: Man Utd are exactly the same without Ferguson. Winning when they shouldn't be!

  63. 1811: 
    Swansea 0-2 Man Utd

    As that picture shows, the opener was yet another superbly taken goal from Robin van Persie. There's not many type of goals he can't score are there?

  64. 1811: 
    GET INVOLVED
    Robin van Persie

    Sam Muchai: New Season, New Manager, Same old Van Persie.

    Keval Shah: Cheeky bicycle kick from Van Persie. Picking up where he left off last season. Could be the difference again.

    Nick Whitbread: My word Giggs has been exceptional so far. Movement, passing, awareness. And 40 years old later this year!

  65. 1810: 
    YELLOW CARD- Swansea 0-2 Man Utd

    Swansea manager Michael Laudrup prowls the edge of his technical area wearing a bemused look. His side had started so well and were arguably on top in the moments before conceding, but United have took full charge now. If Swansea can get one back then you never know...

    Michael Carrick is booked though as he catches Wayne Routledge high on the thigh as we enter the last five minutes of the first half.

  66. 1810: 
    PLAYER REACTION: Arsenal 1-3 Aston Villa
    Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere

    Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere, whose side play Fenerbahce on Wednesday in the first leg of a crucial Champions League qualifier: "We're not happy, we've got to look at ourselves. We've got a big qualifier coming up in the Champions League. There can be no mistakes now - we've got to push on. We've got to pick ourselves up and go again.

    "We felt good going in, confident and started well. But we dropped our level. We tried to pick it up again but they got the penalty."

    On seeing many fans leave early and then the boos at the final whistle from the few who remained: "It is understandable, they pay their money to watch us and we need to put in better performances and win games. My message to them is to stick with us - it's a long season."

  67. 1808: 
    GET INVOLVED

    The Premier League is under way in typically dramatic fashion, with goals aplenty across all of the leagues. So, what's your #resultoftheday?

    Gregory Mandapat: Nottingham Forest's 3-0 win over Bolton. 3 games, 3 wins to top the Championship table. Favorites for promotion?

    Craig Stewart: Coventry winning 4-0 away at Carlisle - exceptional considering circumstances.

    Aidan Hull: Plymouth v Cheltenham. 3-0 up at half-time, first three points of the season.

  68. 1805: 
    GOAL- Swansea 0-2 Man Utd - Danny Welbeck (36 mins)

    David Moyes punches the air in delight as his side find an instant second goal. A cross from the left is missed by Robin van Persie and Ashley Williams, Antonio Valencia slides the ball across goal and Danny Welbeck has a tap-in from close range. And just like that, Swansea have fallen apart. That's what Manchester United can do to you.

  69. 1803: 
    GOAL- Swansea 0-1 Man Utd - Robin van Persie (34 mins)

    Every time Manchester United are up against it, Robin van Persie comes to the rescue. Swansea were just starting to apply some pressure and dictate the play when the Dutchman pops up with yet another goal. Ryan Giggs lifts a pass over the top to find Van Persie in a pocket of space, the bounce is awkward but he adjusts his body well to hook in right-footed.

  70. 1802: 
    GET INVOLVED

    JB via text: You can see how this game is going to turn out. Rooney to come on and score the winner. Causing confusion for everyone.

  71. 1802: 
    MANAGER REACTION: Arsenal 1-3 Aston Villa
    Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger

    Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, whose side were booed at the final whistle, when the Emirates Stadium was near-empty: "We started well but, after that, everything went wrong - injuries, decisions, going down to 10 men and the chances missed. It was a bad day, not on the quality of our display but everything went against us.

    "I'm not happy with the (second penalty) decision but I'm more unhappy with the spirit the referee let the game go in, I was quite amazed.

    "But it's not my job to talk too much about that, I have to take care of the team. What hurts me is to disappoint people who love the club. All the rest I have to live with, but I'm here to make people happy and when I do not I can only say sorry and come back and make them happy in the next game. We could have won the game today with the players we had on the pitch, I'm convinced of that."

  72. 1800: 
    Swansea 0-0 Man Utd

    Jose Canas is impressing in that deep midfield role for Swansea, he's showing he has more to his game than a crunching tackle as he keeps the ball recycled in midfield. Swansea move the ball nicely around the park, trying to prise apart that Manchester United defence.

  73. 1757:  
    BBC Sport Chief Football Writer Phil McNulty at the LibertyANALYSIS- Swansea 0-0 Man Utd

    "Swansea's passing game is being complimented by some fierce pressing on Manchester United, although the champions have now settled to their task. One of the significant early figures has been a new face in Swansea's Jose Canas. The long-haired midfielder was booked for clattering Tom Cleverley in the opening moments then took one himself as Antonio Valencia received a yellow card.

    "Jonjo Shelvey has also been energetic and pushing forward - while Canas carries the look of man who may be involved again one way or another before this fixture is out. They are clearly under orders not to let United settle or afford time or space.

    "No signs of anxiety from new Manchester United manager David Moyes, though, who is receiving vociferous backing from the travelling support."

  74. 1754: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Jamie Smith: Swansea play nice football, don't think United will win this one easily.

    Niall Pickering: Can't even begin to explain how annoyed i am that Kagawa has not started. How he gets in after Giggs and Cleverley I have no idea.

    Tom Oulton: Where is Kagawa? Thought we might see him under Moyes but such a waste on the bench.

  75. 1753: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Swansea 0-0 Man Utd

    Robin van Persie shoots with his right foot, but drags it wide from 25 yards before Jonjo Shelvey is too powerful for the Manchester United midfield on the counter attack.

    He carries the ball downfield and Michu ends the attack by stabbing in a shot which forces David de Gea into a save at the near post. Michu then heads wide - it's breathless stuff in the south Wales rain.

  76. 1753: 
    MANAGER REACTION: West Ham 2-0 Cardiff
    Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay

    Cardiff manager Malky Mackay, whose newly-promoted side did not manage a single shot on target at Upton Park: "It was nothing different to what we expected. We started poorly and because of that they scored a good goal. After that, we were excellent in the first half and on top for long spells of the second half. We limited them to three shots on target in the whole game but, for us, it is about being clinical when we attack. We stuck our best chance over in the second half - they scored with theirs."

    A lot of people have tipped you for relegation. Can you stay up? "It is not about proving people wrong, it is about belief from within. It is day one of the season and we have got great belief in our ability in the dressing room."

  77. 1751: 
    GET INVOLVED

    The Premier League is underway in typically dramatic fashion, with goals aplenty across all of the leagues. So, what's your #resultoftheday?

    Aidan Williams: I loved Liverpool's win over Stoke. Very exciting and the new signings looked promising, especially Aspas.

    Darrell Iceton: Boro went 1-0 down in the 83rd minute and managed to grab a point in the dying seconds of the game

    Coventry

    Liam Griffin: Carlisle 0-4 Coventry. For all the off-field troubles, the boys performed fantastically today. Great away win!

  78. 1749: 
    DISALLOWED GOAL- Swansea 0-0 Man Utd

    This one is warming up nicely as Swansea have the ball in the net, only to see the offside flag raised. Wayne Routledge toes in a shot from 15 yards, Nathan Dyer retrieves the rebound and Michu swivels to bury the loose ball. But the flag was up, with Dyer offside from the original shot.

    That's got the home side buzzing though.

  79. 1748: 
    CLOSE!- Swansea 0-0 Man Utd

    And Ryan Giggs should score again! Danny Welbeck finds some space to move into the area, he shoots low, it's tame and Michel Vorm parries out, but only as far as Giggs, who connects beautifully but thumps his shot just past the far corner. Inches away.

  80. 1745: 
    CLOSE!- Swansea 0-0 Man Utd

    Ryan Giggs is in - he latches on to a fine lay-off from Robin van Persie but for once, at last you could say, he doesn't have the pace to get clear and Ashley Williams is able to recover and make the tackle. Giggs has been leaving defenders for dead for over 20 years but he couldn't do it that time.

  81. 1745: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Magnus in Glasgow via text: Have a feeling Swansea will win this one, United line-up isn't exactly spectacular, and their opponents will be nothing but confident, also Jonjo Shelvey will be very much up for it, he could have a storming Premier League debut for his new club.

    Peter via text: Don't know how we managed a draw against Everton, played off the park for 90 minutes. Ecstatic with draw, and not many will say that.

  82. 1743: 
    Swansea 0-0 Man Utd

    If I was a betting man, I'd fancy a punt on Swansea midfielder Jose Canas being sent-off this afternoon. The busy midfielder has been everywhere so far, is already on a booking and has crunched into anything moving in front of him. He may need a calming word in his ear before long.

    Robin van Persie has his first chance of the Premier League season, rising to meet a cross from Patrice Evra but heading straight at Michel Vorm. Good chance.

  83. 1743: 
    MANAGER REACTION: West Brom 0-1 Southampton
    West Brom boss Steve Clarke

    West Brom manager Steve Clarke after his team's 1-0 home defeat to Southampton - a game decided by Rickie Lambert's last minute penalty: "To lose to a really soft decision makes it extra disappointing. There's no doubt in my mind. It was a very, very soft decision.

    "The fans will go away and they'll be disappointed with me and the team. They know they have a quality player in Nicolas Anelka. I'll think about that (making new signings) more tomorrow. Today is all about disappointment."

    The Premier League is underway in typically dramatic fashion, with goals aplenty across all of the leagues. So, what's your #resultoftheday?

    Chris Morgan: Got to be arsenal going down to villa:-) the crowd were not happy. Oh and it ruins my accumulator.

    James Stirling: Southampton 1-0. A win on the first game of the season against a team we couldn't score against last season

    Nottingham Forest

    Craig: has to be Forest beating Bolton 3-0 and maintaining our 100% start! Sure sent a message out there today!

  85. 1740: 
    MANAGER REACTION: Sunderland 0-1 Fulham
    Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio

    Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio: "We played attractive football and dominated but in this country more than any other, set-pieces can cost points. We played in their half for 80 minutes and delivered 30 balls into the opponents' area but didn't put the ball into the net. The only clear ball in our box cost a goal.

    "I warned my players before - the players from abroad have to learn. I don't remember (Sunderland keeper) Keiren Westwood having the ball in his hands except getting the ball from the net when Fulham scored. If my players learn quickly why we lost the game, we will have a very good season."

  86. 1739: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Swansea 0-0 Man Utd

    First blood (almost) to the champions though. A free-kick from the left runs through to Phil Jones deep in the penalty area, and he forces Michel Vorm into a flying save to tip away his dipping shot on the bounce. Lovely effort from the utility man.

    Jose Canas then continues his one-man action zone in midfield, nipping in ahead of Antonio Valencia and seeing the former Wigan winger booked.

  87. 1737: 
    Swansea 0-0 Man Utd

    A masterclass in 'Defending from the front' by Michu so far. He closes down David de Gea twice in quick succession, nearly tackling the Manchester Unietd keeper at the second attempt. Zero time or space afforded to David Moyes' side thus far.

  88. 1737: 
    MANAGER REACTION: Arsenal 1-3 Aston Villa
    Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert

    Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert: "After weathering the early storm we were outstanding, especially on the counter-attack. We were absolutely frightening at times - Gabriel Agbonlahor produced as good a performance as I've seen in many a year, he was unplayable. We were very strong at the top of the pitch but all round Agbonlahor was frightening with his speed. Brad Guzan also produced two world-class saves. We were well worthy of winning the game."

  89. 1736: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Peter Wood: Complete waste of Kagawa's ability. He would slot in behind Van Persie so easily.

    Rick Nash: Haven't been this nervous for a United game since final day of 11-12. Life after Fergie officially begins...

    Lars Wolter: Who can deny Michu, if not United? I suspect he will slot one in today. Either way, this will be his last season at Swansea

  90. 1734: 
    Swansea 0-0 Man Utd

    Jonjo Shelvey forces Rio Ferdinand into a scruffy clearance with a powerful run and cross, and the Swans then have United's defence in a twist with two good corners in from the left. Phil Jones takes a bang on the head as he stoops to head one cross away, but he's OK. Swansea playing a very high tempo, high pressing game in these early stages.

  91. 1734: 
    YELLOW CARD- Swansea 0-0 Man Utd

    Welcome to the Premier League, Jose Canas. The Swansea midfielder has obviously been told to get tight to the United midfield but takes it a bit too literally, clattering into Tom Cleverley and earning a very early booking. Canas will have to watch his step now.

    Canas is then taken out by Danny Welbeck - but referee Phi Dowd decided no further punishment was needed for that one.

  92. 1732: 
    MANAGER REACTION: Norwich 2-2 Everton
    Everton midfielder Ross Barkley

    Everton boss Roberto Martinez on 19-year-old Ross Barkley, who scored one goal and was the star of the show in the Toffees' midfield: "He has been like that during pre-season. He is an enormous talent, a raw talent. I am delighted with his attitude, the way he took his goal and the way he worked throughout the game. Today you saw a young man showing his desire to break into the first team."

    As soon as I say I am surprised to see Wilfried Bony left out today, Michael Laudrup comes up with the answer. The club's record signing is on the bench due to jet lag and a late return from international duty.

  101. 1722: 
    MANAGER REACTION- West Ham 2-0 Cardiff City
    West Ham manager Sam Allardyce

    West Ham manager Sam Allardyce: "I'm delighted with the players. We probably had our best pre-season this year since I've been here, with the players settled and no serious injuries. The lads started to focus technically and tactically on the basics and the whole of that came together today. You don't expect to dominate a game from start to finish but we dominated the first half and Joe Cole should have had a hat-trick.

    "Cardiff had a good spell after half-time but we showed our resilient side. If you look at the stats, as I have just done, they have had one shot on target (Matthew Connolly's header, which was going over when Jussi Jaaskelainen helped it over his bar) so defensively we were sound and on the front line we were great in possession and created chances."

  102. 1720: 
    Swansea v Man Utd (1730 BST)

    Ten minutes away from kick-off at the Liberty Stadium. I'm surprised to see Swansea striker Wilfried Bony left on the bench though - he and Michu looked like they were beginning to form a very potent partnership indeed against Malmo in the Europa League.

  103.  
    PLAYER REACTION- Sunderland 0-1 Fulham

    Fulham defender Aaron Hughes: "We'll take a clean sheet all day long. We'd have been happy with a 0-0 draw.

    "We knew they'd come out and have a go but we withstood that. It was always going to be a tough start but makes it extra pleasing for us."

  104. 1714:  
    Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown on Final ScoreArsenal 1-3 Aston Villa

    "There have been links with some good players so there is an intention to buy them but they need to deliver. It is very worrying. The manager has been good in the transfer window in the past and he needs to bring that back. There are 16 days to go in the window and they are massive for the club. They need to improve the squad, they only just made the Champions League last season and their near neighbours Tottenham have strengthened."

    Martin Jol

    Fulham boss Martin Jol: "I think it was a perfect away result but not a perfect performance. We had to grind out the result. It was a very scrappy game for us.

    "Sunderland put so many players up front - they had four attacking players. We didn't do well at times. We have to try to control the midfield - we didn't do that in the first half. We couldn't keep it. Against an energetic Sunderland team... it was a bit easier than we thought, in hindsight.

    "We showed good team spirit. Adel Taarabt had to play 90 minutes despite not having a pre-season, similar for Pajtim Kasami and Matthew Briggs."

    PLAYER REACTION: West Ham 2-0 Cardiff
    West Ham midfielder Joe Cole

    West Ham midfielder Joe Cole: "I think it is very important that we got off to a winning start. Before the first game you feel nerves, apprehension and tension but we have got a win and we can kick on from here.

    "We want to improve on last year and do better than last year. Our away form needs to be better this season, and we will look to start improving that at Newcastle next week."

    Cardiff fan Alexander: We're lacking bite up front, we need a striker and an attacking midfielder.

  108. 1709: 

    The David Moyes era at Manchester United is very close to starting now. For good, anyway.

    Pretty much every pre-season supplement I've seen this week has tipped Moyes to steer United to a third-placed finish this year. Is that what we all think? This is the same side which won the league last year - by 11 points...

    Manchester United manager David Moyes tells Sky Sports: "(The team) is very close to what we picked last weekend (for the Community Shield), Rafael has a slight injury but is suspended anyway.

    "The pitch will be a lot quicker which both teams will enjoy. Swansea will enjoy it because of their passing game but we like to pass it around as well.

    West Ham keeper Jussi Jaaskelainen has not been a total spectator in this second half, dealing with a couple of tricky crosses, and just now a looping header that was going over anyway, but he has still not had a shot to save.

    Peter Whittingham has just curled a free-kick a fraction wide from 25 yards out for the visitors, but Cardiff's frustrations in the final third continue. Only seconds left at Upton Park.

  124. 1653: 
    Arsenal 1-3 Aston Villa

    Bacary Sagna is back on his feet which is an encouraging sign - possibly the only one Arsenal fans will take from today's game. Christian Benteke then almost has a hat-trick as he drags a shot wide from 20 yards

    CLOSE!- West Ham 2-0 Cardiff

    Cardiff still have not had a shot on target today, but they are getting closer. The ball falls for Bluebirds substitute Nicky Maynard, six yards out, but under pressure from James Collins, the former West Ham striker cannot keep his first time effort down and it fizzes over the bar.

    That was the Welsh side's best effort of the day, which is not really saying a lot.

  132. 1646: 
    GOAL- West Brom 0-1 Southampton - Rickie Lambert (90 mins)

    Never in doubt. What a week for Rickie Lambert, as England's midweek matchwinner fires the penalty low into the corner, right into the side-netting.

  133. 1646: 
    GOAL- Arsenal 1-3 Aston Villa - Antonio Luna (85 mins)

    Seamus Coleman almost wins it for Everton - cracking in a left-footed effort on the run from 20 yards which skims the far post. The right-back has been on fire today.

  136. 1643: 
    Sunderland 0-1 Fulham

    Gareth may not rate him, but Jozy Altidore has come as close as anyone for Sunderland this afternoon. He beats a challenge to get into the danger zone but can't find any power in his shot and it's tame, right at David Stockdale.

  143. 1636: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Norwich 2-2 Everton

    It has been a good watch at Carrow Road though, where Everton fans are once again cursing their luck. Steven Naismith sees his shot from point-blank range brilliantly stopped by John Ruddy, and Nikica Jelavic's powerful follow-up is kept out by Russell Martin. He loves a block!

  144. 1636: 
    West Brom 0-0 Southampton

    Still no sign of a breakthrough from either side. It's not been a classic at The Hawthorns.

  145. 1634: 
    GOAL- West Ham 2-0 Cardiff - Kevin Nolan
    Joe Cole (left) and Kevin Nolan

    Another masterful finish by West Ham, with Kevin Nolan matching Joe Cole's artful strike from the first half with an instinctive first-time effort. It was Mark Noble who did the hard work, bursting into the Cardiff area, before Nolan made no mistake, sweeping his shot into the net.

    Given Cardiff have not managed a single shot on target so far today, it is an awful long way back for them to salvage something from here.

  146. 1632: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Arsenal 1-2 Aston Villa

    Tomas Rosicky goes through on goal for Arsenal but he foiled by a sprawling save from Brad Guzan. Despite going down to 10 men it's the home side who are continuing to press for an equaliser.

  147. 1632: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Sunderland 0-1 Fulham

    And that's the end of Maarten Stekelenburg's Fulham debut, he is off clutching his shoulder. David Stockdale comes on for the remainder of the game.

  148. 1630:

    "Arsenal are all over the shop since going 2-1 down. They're pushing for an equaliser but leaving huge gaps at the back. Benteke, Agbonlahor and Weimann are getting loads of space and I can't think of a better forward three to counter-attack with in the Premier League."

  151. 1628: 
    GOAL- Norwich 2-2 Everton - Ricky van Wolfswinkel (71 mins)

    Goal on his debut for Norwich striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel, and it brings the home side back level. Again, right-back Steven Whittaker is heavily involved, taking aim ambitiously with his left foot, slicing his shot across the face of goal for Van Wolfswinkel to expertly redirect back across and into the top corner. A really superb header.

  152. 1626: 
    RED CARD- Arsenal 1-2 Aston Villa - Laurent Koscielny

    Laurent Koscielny has not had a good few minutes. Moments after giving away a debateable penalty - for which he was booked - the Frenchman sees his second yellow for a rash challenge on Andreas Weimann.

  153. 1626: 

    Into the last 20 minutes or so now - can we have a goal at The Hawthorns? Can Arsenal respond to that second Villa goal? Will Everton hang on to their lead?

  154. 1625: 
    West Ham 1-0 Cardiff

    West Ham have faded of late as an attacking force but they have just gone within inches of extending their lead, as Mark Noble slides in at the far post and only just fails to make contact on Modibo Maiga's cross-shot from the left. Replays show Cardiff keeper David Marshall got his fingertips to Maiga's shot to keep it out.

    Given that Cardiff have played for more than an hour without managing a shot on target, a second Hammers goal would probably kill them off.

    Garth Crooks on Final ScoreArsenal 1-2 Aston Villa

    "It is debatable penalty, it is 50/50. Why does Laurent Koscielny go to ground? Why does he not work and stay with the player? Wenger will tell them that. Stay on your feet and work the striker, make him do something special to beat you."

  157. 1622: 
    GOAL- Norwich 1-2 Everton - Seamus Coleman (65 mins)

    Everton lead, and deservedly so. Leighton Baines finds Steven Pienaar on the left, and he picks out Nikica Jelavic at the near post. John Ruddy stops the Croatian's powerful shot with his face, but Seamus Coleman pops up in the six-yard box to bury the loose ball. Coleman - like Ross Barkley - has impressed for Everton today.

  158. 1622: 
    GOAL- Arsenal 1-2 Aston Villa - Christian Benteke (61 mins)

    He missed one in the first half but doesn't change his method - Christian Benteke puts Aston Villa ahead with a low spot-kick into the corner. The debate about that one will rage on...

    PENALTY TO ASTON VILLA- Arsenal 1-1 Aston Villa

    Gabby Agbonlahor running at the Arsenal defence, we've seen this before - and it's a second penalty! Laurent Koscielny slides in and gets a touch on the ball - but a pen is given!

  160. 1620: 
    CHAMPIONSHIP

    Nottingham Forest look like they are heading to the top of the Championship, Billy Davies's side now lead 2-0 against 10-man Bolton after an Andy Reid strike.

    Bournemouth could have doubled their lead against Wigan but Scott Carson kept out Brett Pitman's penalty. But the Latics have lost Callum McManaman to a straight red card - the first of his career.

    Steve Lomas's start in charge of Millwall is getting tougher after James Vaughan put Huddersfield ahead at the Den.

  161. 1617: 
    GOAL- Norwich 1-1 Everton - Ross Barkley (61 mins)

    Wow! Ross Barkley has been very impressive today, and he draws Everton level with a screamer!

    It's his first for Everton and one he'll remember for the rest of his career. Seamus Coleman weaves past a challenge on the right and tees up Barkley 20 yards from goal, he shifts it on to his left foot and whizzes a shot into the far corner with minimal backlift before running to the away fans housed opposite him. Brilliant goal.

  162. 1615: 
    Norwich 1-0 Everton

    Everton boss Roberto Martinez won't be quite sure how his side are losing at Carrow Road, but he has sent new striker Arouna Kone out to warm up. Midfielder Steven Pienaar needs some treatment after taking a knee to the thigh but he should be OK to carry on.

  163. 1614: 
    HITS THE WOODWORK- West Brom 0-0 Southampton

    So close for Southampton. Impressive 18-year-old James Ward-Prowse delivers another inviting ball into the Baggies penalty area which is nodded into the path of Jay Rodriguez who clatters the bar with a thumping attempt. West Brom living dangerously.

    And a fine game in north London too as Aston Villa rattle the woodwork! Midfielder Fabian Delph runs through the middle unchallenged and sends in a shot against the base of the post from the edge of the area. The Premier League is livening up...

  166. 1613: 
    West Ham 1-0 Cardiff

    End to end stuff at Upton Park. Cardiff's first corner of the game produces a tremendous goalmouth scramble before West Ham clear their lines and Mark Noble finds Matt Jarvis, who cuts in on to his trusty left foot inside the Bluebirds area but lifts his shot over the bar.

    So far, at least, Cardiff's free-kicks have been poor from some dangerous positions - they need more set-piece deliveries like that one, and a shot or two on target too.

  167. 1611: 
    CLOSE!- Arsenal 1-1 Aston Villa

    Big chance for Arsenal to go ahead as Tomas Rosicky plays a one-two with Jack Wilshere to run in on goal but the Czech leans back and fires over the top. Wasteful, wasteful stuff.

    As basic as it gets. Corner from the right beats everyone in the middle, Pajtim Kasami climbs above his marker beyond the far post and heads in from six yards. Paolo Di Canio looks livid.

  171. 1607: 
    GOAL- Norwich 1-0 Everton - Steven Whittaker (51 mins)

    Where has this come from? Norwich have been under the cosh for most of the game but take the lead thanks to a solo effort from right-back Steven Whittaker.

    The Scotsman slaloms past a lazy challenge from Marouane Fellaini, cuts inside and hits the post with an arcing left-footed shot from the edge of the box. He is first to the rebound and slots in from a tight angle.

    Cardiff boss Malky Mackay

    Cardiff almost pay a heavy price for a sloppy start to the second half. West Ham's first attack comes within seconds of the kick-off and sees Modibo Maiga and Mohamed Diame find acres of space in and around the Bluebirds area, with Diame eventually slamming his shot over the bar from the edge of the box.

    Cardiff keeper David Marshall laid into his defence afterwards - and I think they have woken up now.

    It's as you where from Everton, who hit the ground running and create a good chance at Carrow Road. Seamus Coleman gets away on the overlap down the right and picks out Kevin Mirallas arriving at the near post, but he skids his shot into the side-netting. Should do better there.

  176. 1604: 
    Sunderland 0-0 Fulham

    Jozy Altidore is likely to cause a few bruises this season, and he has Aaron Hughes in a spot of bother at the start of the second period, treading on his foot as the two compete for a header and sending the Northern Irishman's boot flying.

    "David Moyes hasn't had the most comfortable of starts to his career at Manchester United - friendly results were indifferent, a marquee signing has, so far, proved elusive and Wayne Rooney's associates seem intent on agitating for a transfer.

    "All those will seem but minor irritations if United should fare poorly in upcoming games against Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City, and before that there's the prospect of this tricky first-day trip to Swansea."

  181. 1559:

  183. 1555: 
    West Ham 1-0 Cardiff

    Cardiff City are the only newly-promoted Premier League team in action today and it is safe to say they are not taking the top flight by storm - so far at least.

    The Bluebirds, who trail 1-0, did not manage a single shot on target in the first half and their only efforts on goal were two long range efforts by Kim Bo-Kyung and Craig Bellamy that never looked like troubling Hammers keeper Jussi Jaaskelainen. Aside from a couple of blocked shots and Fraizer Campbell falling over his own feet in the area, that has been the sum total of the Welsh side's attacking threat.

  184. 1554: 
    Arsenal 1-1 Aston Villa

    Mark Pougatch on Radio 5 live reports that there are supporters sat behind Arsene Wenger holding up banners which simply say. 'Spend, Spend, Spend.'

    Cardiff have been poor so far but, other than that moment of genius from Joe Cole, West Ham have not exactly been tearing up trees either.

    The Hammers have just gone close to scoring a second goal, though, with Mohamed Diame cutting in from the left before firing in a thunderous drive that deflected off Matthew Connolly and ended up flashing an inch or two wide of David Marshall's left-hand post. The Bluebirds keeper did not even move.

  201. 1539:

    What are you playing at Wojciech Szczesny? The Arsenal keeper - who has already conceded a penalty in this half - goes on a Bruce Grobbelaar style walkabout outside of his area and is challenged by Christian Benteke. The ball rolls out to Ashley Westwood 35 yards out and the midfielder tries to chip the ball back, only for the Polish keeper to get back and make the save.

    Cardiff City's first 35 minutes or so as a Premier League club have hardly been spectacular. As well as trailing to Joe Cole's goal, they have barely threatened at the other end, with a Kim Bo-Kyung shot from distance that flew well wide their only effort at note.

    We have not even seen a tackle of note yet by the Bluebirds' record signing, Gary Medel - a Chilean midfielder who was named after MOTD host Gary Lineker but is nicknamed the "pitbull", which should give you an idea of the type of player he is (not much like Lineker).

    The previous Premier League game staged at The Hawthorns saw three goals in the opening half an hour as West Brom drew 5-5 with Manchester United on the final day of last season.

    But this game has a goalless draw written all over it at the moment as the Baggies struggle to get going while the Saints are unable to make the most of their possession.

    Never mind 10 goals. One will do right now.

    A steady half hour for Sunderland at home to Fulham, but Jozy Altidore is the latest to not quite get on the end of a promising move as a cross from the left evades his near-post run. Paolo Di Canio is at stage two of his touchline animations already.

    He'll be on his knees by full-time...

  208. 1531: 
    YELLOW CARD- Arsenal 1-1 Aston Villa

    That's one way to stop Jack Wilshere in full flow - the Arsenal midfielder is taken out at high speed by a bodycheck from Ron Vlaar. It was as cynical as it gets from the big Dutchman, and Wilshere doesn't like it one bit. There are some handbags, and both players go into the book. Poor challenge.

    BBC Sport's Mark Mitchener at Bournemouth 0-0 Wigan: "Steady drizzle on the south coast, a lively game but the chances haven't exactly been raining in. Bournemouth's best chance came in the first minute when a mistake let in top scorer Lewis Grabban who scuffed his shot at goal. Wigan have Grant Holt operating as a lone striker in front of a five-man midfield, from where James McCarthy emerged to test Cherries keeper Ryan Allsop from distance. But Bournemouth are improving as the half goes on."

  217. 1524: 
    West Ham 1-0 Cardiff

    Another great chance for West Ham, and Joe Cole really should have his second goal of the season. He springs the offside trap to dash clear but gets his finish all wrong, trying to chip David Marshall but instead clipping the ball weakly towards the Cardiff keeper.

    If Cole had scored, he would have equalled his Premier League tally from last season in the first 25 minutes of this new campaign.

    It's a terrible penalty from Christian Benteke, he barely reaches the goal with a scuffed side-footed shot which Wojciech Szczesny keeps out, but the big Belgian gets to the loose ball first to force home a header from close range.

    Have you seen a left-back have more of the ball Leighton Baines? He is the conductor of the Everton orchestra at the minute as they carve a chance down the left, but Steven Pienaar leans back and scuffs his shot over the top.

    Norwich new man Ricky van Wolfswinkel then has his first sighter, but he can't make a clean connection with a header at the back stick and the ball drifts out of play.

  229. 1514: 
    GOAL- West Ham 1-0 Cardiff - Joe Cole (13 mins)

    Cardiff City last precisely 13 minutes before conceding their first Premier League goal. It's a good one too, from West Ham's point of view. Matt Jarvis again dashes down the left and his low cross reaches Joe Cole, who takes one touch to control it and then swivels to bang a low shot past the desperate dive of David Marshall and into the bottom corner. A quality finish.

    West Ham 0-0 Cardiff

    A quiet start at Upton Park, where Matt Jarvis has sent over a couple of decent crosses for the Hammers but precious little else of note has happened. West Ham have punted a couple of long free-kicks into the Cardiff box too, but that is all the Welsh side have had to deal with so far on their Premier League debut.

  233. 1508:  
    John Hartson at the Emirates Stadium on BBC Radio 5 liveArsenal 1-0 Aston Villa

    "Fantastic play, especially from Jack Wilshere in his own box, he showed great composure to start that move. It was a great finish by Giroud with his left foot."

    You can listen to live radio commentary of Arsenal v Aston Villa on BBC Radio 5 live.

  234. 1508: 
    West Brom 0-0 Southampton

    Rickie Lambert wins an early corner for Southampton as the match-winner for England against Scotland in midweek makes his presence felt at The Hawthorns.

    We've seen little from new Baggies signing Nicolas Anelka so far, with the nervous hosts finding themselves under early pressure.

  235. 1506: 
    GOAL- Arsenal 1-0 Aston Villa - Olivier Giroud (6 mins)

    Who needs Gonzalo Higuain? Olivier Giroud gets Arsenal's campaign up and running as he runs to the near post to meet an excellent cross from the left from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and sweep into the net. Fine start for an unmoved Arsene Wenger.

  236. 1505: 
    Norwich 0-0 Everton

    Leighton Baines' cultured left foot gets its first outing of the season as he plants a curling free-kick into the heart of the Norwich defence, Phil Jagielka wins the header but it's straight at John Ruddy.

    The Paolo Di Canio revolution is well and truly underway at the Stadium of Light as his new-look outfit start in lively fashion. Emanuele Giaccherini - who was outstanding for Italy during the Confederations Cup - cracks an early shot over the top.

    Norwich v Everton (1500 BST)

    Plenty of new faces at Carrow Road as well, where Chris Hughton's side appear to have purchased well and Everton have a new manager.

    Norwich's FA Youth Cup winning side are currently parading the trophy to the full stands, after the kids beat Chelsea over two legs back in May.

  246. 1451: 
    West Ham v Cardiff (1500 BST)

    Of our three new sides to the Premier League this season, only Cardiff are in action today. How will they get on in their opener at West Ham? Steven Caulker struck me as a particularly smart purchase, but the remainder of Malky Mackay's squad looks relatively untested at this level.

    As for the Hammers, a front three (when fit) of Matty Jarvis, Andy Carroll and Stewart Downing looks like it should work. On paper, anyway. Carroll and Downing miss out today.

  247. 1447: 
    Arsenal v Aston Villa (1500 BST)

    Amongst all the change though Arsenal provide us with some continuity - their XI today is the same side which ended their last game of last season at Newcastle.

    If it ain't broke...

  248. 1447:  
    BBC Sport's Ben Smith at AnfieldLiverpool 1-0 Stoke

    "That was quite a 90 minutes, wasn't it?

    "The stands in front of me are emptying rapidly and the overwhelming feeling among the fans is one of pure relief. The name on everyone's lips is Simon Mignolet, of course. That late penalty save turned a pretty shaky debut into one he will have dreamt about and the fact he flapped at a cross or two will be forgotten now. Plenty of positives for Mark Hughes and Stoke, who will feel they should have claimed a point."

    Listen to the penalty save from BBC Radio 5 live.

  249. 1445: 

    There are many new signings, new faces and - of particular concern to myself - new spellings to get our heads around this afternoon.

    Iago Aspas had a decent debut for Liverpool against Stoke, but how will the new boys at the rest of our 1500 kick-offs fare?

  250. 1442: 

    Many thanks Bevo - Tom Rostance here as we roll on to the first goalfest of the Premier League season (hopefully).

    You've had your starter from Anfield, settle in for a main course of six more games between now and 2000 ish. New season - same old action?

    Time for some handbags in the aftermath of that penalty save too. Steven N'Zonzi and Philippe Coutinho clash, then N'Zonzi clips Lucas after he tries to separate them. Martin Atkinson decides further punishment is not necessary.

  263. 1430: 
    MISSED PENALTY by Stoke- Liverpool 1-0 Stoke

    Wow. Double wow. Triple wow. Stoke's big chance to steal a point comes after Daniel Agger handles Charlie Adam's delivery. Jon Walters steps up to take the spot-kick but scuffs his shot and Simon Mignolet - so nervous early on - guesses right and dives to his right to keep it out. Not only that, he gets up to keep out Kenwyne Jones' follow-up too. Who saw the Belgian keeper being Liverpool's hero today? Because he is.

  264. 1429: 
    PENALTY to Stoke- Liverpool 1-0 Stoke

    Daniel Agger handles the ball in the area. Referee Martin Atkinson points to the spot.

  265. 1429: 
    Liverpool 1-0 Stoke

    Stoke lift the ball forward, more in hope than expectation... but they win a free-kick for a high boot by Raheem Sterling. Charlie Adam is behind it, about 35 yards out.

    BBC Sport's Owen Phillips reports: "Record signing Ricky van Wolfswinkel starts up front for Norwich as does another new recruit, winger Nathan Redmond. But Gary Hooper is ruled out through injury and is not in the squad.

    "Everton's new summer signings Arouna Kone and Gerard Deulofeu both start on the bench, meaning their line-up has a very familiar look to it. Nikica Jelavic leads the forward line with Marouane Fellaini playing just behind."

  268.  
    West Brom v Southampton (1500 BST)

    BBC Sport's Neil Johnston reports: "Nicolas Anelka makes his first Premier League start since 24 September 2011 after being handed an immediate debut by West Brom, the 34-year-old former France international's sixth club in England.

    "Southampton's two big summer signings both start - midfielder Victor Wanyama, the £12.5m club record buy from Celtic, and defender Dejan Lovren from Lyon. The Saints, who also start with England goalscorer Rickie Lambert, include three 18-year-olds in the side - Luke Shaw, Calum Chambers and James Ward-Prowse."

  269.  
    Arsenal v Aston Villa (1500 BST)

    BBC Sport's David Ornstein reports: "No surprises in Arsenal's first line-up of the new season as Wojciech Szczesny starts in goal, with Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny partnered in central defence and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain joining a midfield that includes Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey and Tomas Rosicky.

    "Lone-striker Olivier Giroud is supported by Theo Walcott as the Gunners' only new signing Yaya Sanogo joins Santi Cazorla on the bench.

    "Aston Villa hand a Premier League debut to former Sevilla left-back Antonio Luna, while five more summer acquisitions are among the substitutes. After withdrawing his transfer request and signing a new contract, Christian Benteke leads the Villa line - and he will be aided in attack by Andreas Weimann and Gabriel Agbonlahor."

    Arsenal v Aston Villa (1500 BST)

    Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger: "We want to start well at home with a win against a team who are strong on the counter-attack, so we need a good defensive performance. Pre-season has gone well - the only really bad thing is we got some injuries, the last one to Mikel Arteta just before the season starts. Thomas Vermaelen and Nacho Monreal we could get used to the idea, but the most recent one is a blow because we're a bit short in midfield. We have vital games coming up, next week we have the Champions League qualifier, so we hope not to get more injuries."

  274. 1425: 
    CLOSE!- Liverpool 1-0 Stoke

    Simon Mignolet's nervous day almost turns into a nightmare. Charlie Adam, Stoke's former Liverpool midfielder, looks up on the halfway line and spots the Reds keeper off his line. Adam lobs the ball goalwards and it is dropping under the bar before Mignolet recovers to tip it over.

    Audacious from Adam, relief for Mignolet.

    Stoke keeper Asmir Begovic is holding his own personal 'save of the season' competition, and it is only the opening day.

Brilliant stuff.

    Liverpool's first booking of the day. Kolo Toure catches Erik Pieters after he darts past him, and referee Martin Atkinson reaches for his pocket.

  283. 1417: 
    Liverpool 1-0 Stoke

    Daniel Sturridge has already scored once from outside the box today, and he clearly fancies his chances of adding another goal from similar range.

    With Stoke's defence continuing to back off whenever the Reds get possession, Sturridge picks up the ball midway in the visitors' half and sends a rasping shot flying a yard or two wide of Asmir Begovic's left-hand post. That second goal that Liverpool still need, still eludes them.

  284.   
    BBC Sport's Ben Smith at AnfieldLiverpool 1-0 Stoke - Analysis from Anfield

    "Simon Mignolet has had something of a mixed debut for Liverpool. Granted he hasn't had a great deal to do this afternoon, but he made a shaky start when he flapped at a cross which led to Stoke hitting the bar and he hasn't quite looked comfortable ever since.

    "He has made one tremendous save from Jonathan Walters but there have also been moments when he has been close to being caught in possession. There has been constant and pretty audible chatter between him and Kolo Toure but there is no doubt he is still feeling his way into the No 1 (the No 22) shirt."

  285. 1414:

  289. 1411: 
    Liverpool 1-0 Stoke

    As discussed, Stoke are largely being outplayed but while they are only one goal down they can still hold hope of sneaking a point.

    They are not exactly knocking on the door but it takes a great block from Daniel Agger to ensure Robert Huth's strike from inside the area does not trouble Reds keeper Simon Mignolet after Liverpool struggle to deal with a free-kick fired into their box.

    GREAT SAVE!- Liverpool 1-0 Stoke

    If you have just joined us, there is only one reason why Liverpool are only 1-0 up against Stoke, and that is Potters keeper Asmir Begovic. The big Bosnian has just done it again, producing possibly his best save of a very special day to tip a Jordan Henderson drive on to the post. Henderson thought that was in and so did his manager Brendan Rodgers.

  296. 1405: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Liverpool 1-0 Stoke

    Two changes for Stoke: Jermain Pennant for Matthew Etherington and Charlie Adam for Glenn Whelan. Potters boss Mark Hughes knows he needs to try something different.

  297. 1402: 
    Liverpool 1-0 Stoke

    Stoke are struggling to get hold of the ball at present, let alone threaten an equaliser. Meanwhile, here come Liverpool again. Philippe Coutinho pulls the strings again, sending Daniel Sturridge dashing down the left to fire in an angled shot that Asmir Begovic pushes around his post. From the resulting corner, Reds debutant Iago Aspas flashes a header wide.
