Premier League Game Week 1 Review (Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool)

Chelsea took a two-nil lead into half time, despite not playing their best football. They were much improved in the second half, they cruised to a three-nil victory. Liverpool were outstanding in the first half, but they would be disappointed with much of the second half. They still managed to win by four goals to nil without playing their best football.
