Chaos of the Premier League is back for another season

It's finally here. After 97 days, a Premier League ball will be kicked in anger once again.

Saturday sees 14 of the top-flight's 20 sides in action with Louis van Gaal's Manchester United taking on Swansea. Later, Tottenham head to West Ham for Mauricio Pochettino's first game in charge of Spurs and Arsenal host managerless Crystal Palace.

With the likes of Diego Costa, Cesc Fabregas, Alexis Sanchez and Ander Herrera brought to England over the summer, this Premier League season feels like no other.

Moyes & Rooney see off Manchester United plane protests

Manchester United’s clash with Aston Villa at Old Trafford threatened to be overshadowed by protests after fans chartered a plan carrying a ‘Moyes Out’ banner.

While the plane flew over Old Trafford just after kick-off, the focus quickly turned to the action with the Red Devils coming back from a goal down to secure a 4-1 win.

Wayne Rooney was the driving force behind the victory, scoring twice, as United picked up all three points and ended a frustrating week on a high.

Bendt out of shape - Wenger struggled to flog Danish flop

Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner came close to moving to Crystal Palace in the summer and probably would be turning out for Ian Holloway's side had he not turned up for a medical out of shape.

The Denmark international spent last season on loan at Juventus and appeared to be on his way out of Arsene Wenger's squad this summer until a move to the Eagles broke down.

All's well that ends well though - Bendtner's back amongst the goals for Denmark - netting twice in their 2-2 draw with Italy and may well be afforded chances in the first team given the paucity of options at Wenger's disposal.

If he shapes up...

Zaha set to take the plunge with Manchester United

Wilfried Zaha has made quite the name for himself in the Championship with Crystal Palace and is subsequently being coveted by the cream of the Premier League.
Arsene Wenger registered his interest in the prodigal 20-year-old back in November but as the January transfer window draws nearer to its conclusion, it appears Manchester United are on the verge of clinching the transfer of Zaha.

Indeed, Sir Alex Ferguson is expected to offer the south London club £17 million to take the wonderkid to Old Trafford. Zaha has scored five goals from 32 games this season playing the majority of his matches from wide positions and was rewarded by Roy Hodgson with his first England cap in a friendly against Sweden.

Holloway desperate to block Wenger in pursuit of Zaha

Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway has come out fighting after Arsene Wenger confirmed that Arsenal are mulling over a move for starlet Wilfried Zaha.

Following the Frenchman's comments, the former Blackpool boss lashed out at the north London outfit's manager for talking about his players in public, telling The Sun he would be ringing the Gunners' manager to complain about his "totally bad etiquette".

However, as exclusively revealed by, the Gunners are now in talks with the Championship outfit about a proposed £12 million January move for the 20-year-old.

But this is unlikely to stop Holloway from doing all he can to keep hold of the attacker, who recently won his first senior England call-up, even if it means getting in Wenger's way.
