Olivier Giroud scored a beautiful long range goal not too long after coming on as a second half substitute in Arsenal's 3-0 win over Manchester City in the Community Shield.

The Frenchman, reportedly not up to his best at last weekend's Emirates Cup, has been given a reduced workload leading up to the regular season opener in hopes he will be fully recovered from France's World Cup run. It seems likely he will be ready for the start of the season next Saturday and his beauty of a goal will have his confidence high headed in to that match.

Marko Arnautovic issued an apology to West Ham fans on his Instagram page after he was sent off in the Saturday's 3-2 defeat at Southampton.

The Hammers were forced to play the majority of Saturday's defeat with 10 men after Arnautovic was shown a straight red card for a violent elbow on Jack Stephens in the 33rd minute at the St. Mary's Stadium. West Ham fought back after the attacker's dismissal as Javier Hernandez scored twice to bring Slaven Bilic's side back from a 2-0 deficit, but the spirited comeback was undone by a Charlie Austin spot-kick in the 93rd minute. While Arnautovic protested his innocence over the foul during the match, the 28-year-old posted an apology on social media after the fixture: "I want to apologise to all the West Ham fans. Just want to let you know I didn't want to let my team down and you fans. So please, sorry. A big apology to all of you." The club record signing will now serve a three-match ban before being eligible to return September 23rd against Tottenham.

Jamie Vardy has recovered from a foot injury and is expected to be fit to face Sheffield United in the Carabao Cup clash on Tuesday.

Vardy was withdraw towards the end of the Premier League victory over Brighton & and Hove Albion on Saturday with a foot issue, but has been declared fit to face the Blades by manager Craig Shakespeare. "Jamie [Vardy] trained this morning (Monday) okay," Shakespeare said, but added the striker may see a limited role in the cup fixture with Leicester headed to Old Trafford to face Manchester United on Saturday. This could see Shinji Okazaki and Islam Slimani lead the attack against Sheffield United in order to afford Vardy some more rest ahead of the clash with the Premier League leaders.

Leicester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho has been ruled out of Tuesday's Carabao Cup clash with Sheffield United but could be fit for the trip to Manchester United on Saturday.

Iheanacho has returned to training after missing the 2-0 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion with a foot injury but Tuesday's cup clash will come too soon for the £25million signing from Manchester City. "He [Iheanacho] won’t feature," said manager Craig Shakespeare on Monday. "There’s no real major problems which is a bonus. Obviously, when players get discomfort in there, you want that to settle down by giving him a few days off the grass." Iheanacho saw a specialist last week after experiencing pain in his toe while running at full speed and, according to Shakespeare, will be given more time to recover ahead of the trip to Old Trafford. Meanwhile, Wes Morgan (back), Robert Huth (ankle) and Danny Drinkwater (thigh) will also miss the trip to Bramall Lane on Tuesday.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has posted a video showing off his kickboxing abilities captioned "Which knee?"

The video suggests that Zlatan is eager to return to professional football after his prolonged absence since suffering a season ending knee injury last April. José Mourinho previously admitted that Ibra and Manchester United had been speaking about handing the veteran striker a new contract once he could prove his fitness. Earlier this month, he said: "He's injured and needs time to recover. He's not ready to play tomorrow so it's not urgent. We're not desperate to have it done or not done." "We are discussing the possibility of him staying with us for the second part of the season," he added. Rumours are now suggesting that the Swede will indeed sign on for The Red Devils for the coming PL season, providing an exciting backup option for Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford.

Tottenham's ability to play in their temporary Wembley home did not start off well as they failed to take advantage of a Chelsea side coming off a bad performance and it was the Blues who took the points in a 1-2 final.

It was a frustrating opener to be sure, as Spurs enjoyed 68% of the possession, had several more attempts on target and had a corner kick advantage of 14 to 3. But the curse of Harry Kane in August continued, as he managed to hit the post in this one, the second week in a row, as well as pick up a yellow card for the second match running. Christian Eriksen was able to make a fantasy contribution once again, as his free kick in the 82nd minute was directed in by Michy Batshuayi for an own goal, leveling the match temporarily. Chelsea found a winner minutes later, as Hugo Lloris was beaten on the short side by Marcos Alonso. The stats would make one think there's not reason to panic with this Tottenham side, but they had a chance to take points from their rivals who they were coming off a poor performance and two suspended starters, as well as dismiss the "Wembley effect", and today they failed.

Chelsea got back on track after their opening slip up against Burnley by using a pair of Marcos Alonso goals to lead the way to a 1-2 win over London rivals Tottenham.

After a week of speculation regarding how Chelsea's future looked following the loss to the Clarets, they responded positively today, as Victor Moses returned to the XI from suspension, Alvaro Morata was preferred to Michy Batshuayi and Tiémoué Bakayoko made his debut. The headlines belong to Alonso though, who reminded us of how dangerous he is in the Blues attack. A foul om David Luiz midway through the first half set up a free kick for the left-footed Alonso, and he curled one over the wall and past a helpless Hugo Lloris to put Chelsea ahead. While Spurs had their moments, Chelsea were in control late into the match but Batshuayi, who came on as a substitute, directed a SPurs free kick into Chelsea's own goal. Alonso saved the day though with a run down the left after a pass from Pedro and he beat the keeper short side for the match-winner.

Newcastle is off to a dubious start after a 1-0 loss to Huddersfield Town, its second straight loss to start the season.

The Magpies have yet to score a goal in either of their Premier League matches to start the season, but manager Rafa Benitez is hoping that new signing Joselu can help. The former Stoke City forward debuted in black and white early on in the second half and would have had a debut goal if it wasn't for two hard-earned saves from Huddersfield Town keeper Jonas Lossl. Having lost Florian Lejeune and Paul Dummett to injury, Benitez added Jamaal Lascelles and Chancel Mbemba to the back-line.

Arsenal a good goal called offside and saw two reasonable penalty shouts ignored as they dropped a 1-0 decision to old nemesis Stoke City.

The defending on Jese's lone goal of the match was poor but Arsenal will feel they got the short end of the stick from the officials. Lacazette's goal should certainly have been allowed and if even one of the two penalty shouts had been called the dodgy defense from Monreal would have been forgotten.

Manchester United continued their strong start to the season with a convincing 0-4 win over Swansea City in which Paul Pogba provided a goal and two assists.

The opening half of the game was a possession battle which the Red Devils won, but outside a header off the bar on 10 minutes by Phil Jones, the Swans defense looked up to the task, keeping Romelu Lukaky quiet. Right on the 45th minute though, a corner kick was headed powerfully by Pogba on toward goal and Eric Bailly was there to poach the ball in on the line. It would remain 0-1 until the 80th minute and that's when the explosion happened. First, a Swansea turnover allowed Henrikh Mkhitaryan to pick out an open Lukaku who slotted home for his 3rd goal of the young campaign. Mkhi then fed Pogba a clever ball and the latter looped one over the Swans keeper for the third goal. Substitute Anthony Martial joined in the fun moments after that, with Pogba again playing provider. The defense was solid but were not tested too much. There is fantasy gold all over this side right now.

Swansea City's home opener was one to forget as they ran up against a blossoming Manchester United attack and were beaten soundly, 0-4.

It was always going to be a tough assignment for Paul Clement to get a positive result here, but his gameplan at least kept his side in the match right up until the 45th minute. Their best chance to score came very early on when Jordan Ayew found himself in loads of space, took it into the area and tried to lob one into the far corner but it hit the woodwork. The defense, meanwhile, did its best to stave off United's possession advantage as Roque Mesa made his first PL start in central midfield. They would concede just before halftime though from a corner and United were in control for the entire second half, eventually pounding the Swans with three goals in the space of four minutes. It is rather clear Swansea need to do some shopping for impact players before this transfer window closes.

Slaven Bilic may be forced back into the transfer market after Winston Reid suffered what looked to be a serious calf injury when warming up at St Marys’ on Saturday.

The West Ham centre-back, who has just signed a new six-year contract, only returned to the squad 3 weeks ago following knee surgery in May, but at first glance, Reid could be set for another extended spell out after being carried off on a stretcher. Slaven Bilic made four changes from the side well-beaten at Old Trafford, and it was one of those players – Angelo Ogbonna - who was recalled to the starting line-up to partner Jose Fonte. James Collins is capable of playing centrally while Cheikhou Kouyate had a spell as makeshift defender last season, but neither is ideal. Bilic may consider a move for Eliaquim Mangala, who was on the West Ham radar, before they dropped their interest in favour of William Carvalho.
