On a day when Arsenal and Chelsea had a goal-scoring spree while Leicester had a comfortable victory against Swansea, it was quite an action-packed day – rounded off with Daniel Sturridge’s “I-look-totally-disgusted” face.

Here are all the best bits from the day’s action.


Tottenham 1-1 Liverpool

Leicester fans are buzzing after Jamie Vardy’s first goal of the season set the team on their way to the first victory of their Premier League title defence as Swansea were beaten 2-1 at the King Power Stadium.

Vardy, the champions’ leading scorer last season with 24 goals, got off the mark for the new campaign in typical fashion by emphatically finishing a lovely Leicester move.

Leicester fans are thrilled to find out their main man’s still got it:

Jamie Vardy still on fire 🎶

Facial expression of the day

FT: Tottenham 1-1 Liverpool.
When Daniel Sturridge's face was the headline act… pic.twitter.com/PEF2fWG4C5

As Liverpool faced Tottenham in a game that drew 1-1 at White Hart Lane, Daniel Sturridge was kept on the bench for most of the game.

And then when manager Jurgen Klopp decided to up the ante by sending Divock Origi as the early replacement for Philippe Coutinho, the 26-year-old looked less than impressed.

The facepalm moment of the day

Today Shay Given became the oldest player to score an OG in the Premier League. Still a legend though! #COYBIG #SCFC pic.twitter.com/14FYBY0VY8

Ronald Koeman registered his first home Premier League win as Everton manager but required the assistance of a Shay Given own goal from a Leighton Baines penalty to achieve it.

Given also became the oldest Premier League football player in history to score an own goal. We bet it’s one record the Lifford man would rather forget…

To those who have Shay Given in their #FantasyFootball team… Life is cruel

100 – Claudio Ranieri has won his 100th Premier League game as a manager & is the 5th non British/Irish boss to reach the landmark. Century

Player of the day

Eden Hazard’s 2nd #PL goal of the season, 2016/7: August 27

Eden Hazard inspired Chelsea to a thumping 3-0 win over Burnley to maintain their perfect start to the season.

The Belgian playmaker grabbed his second goal in three matches as Chelsea pummelled the Clarets at Stamford Bridge.

Hazard got the ball rolling when he collected Nemanja Matic’s pass inside his own half and galloped unchallenged down the left towards the Burnley penalty area before curling his shot past keeper Tom Heaton and inside the far post from 20 yards.

After his troubles last season, it seems the Chelsea midfielder is at the top of his game:

This is Hazard's revival🔥🔥

Disappointment of the day

Harry Kane has NEVER scored a Premier League goal in August in the 9 games he’s featured for Tottenham. pic.twitter.com/1gVSQaDKre

— Squawka Football (@Squawka) August 27, 2016

Spurs’ Harry Kane has now gone 96 days without scoring and that run looks set to continue.

He was anonymous throughout, failing to get a sniff at goal. Also, it seems August is a bad month for the striker. He has played 10 Premier League games in the month and has yet to score. Yikes.
