Robert Snodgrass scores winner for Hull City
Hull City 2-1 Leicester City
The England Premier League kicked off on Saturday, August 13, 2016 with an exciting clash between 2015-16 EPL Champions Leicester City and newly promoted Hull City. Leicester began the defene of their title with a shocking loss to Hull who only had 13 fit senior players on the pitch at KCOM Stadium.
Hull City took the lead in added time in the first half. Superstar goalie Kasper Schmeichel saved a header from Curtis Davies but the rebound was kicked in by an amazing combo from Abel Hernandez and Adama Diomande putting Hull in front before the break.
Leicester star Riyad Mahrez put the Foxes level.
Robert Snodgrass' strike in the 57th minute gave the Tigers their first victory of the season.
Leicester City became the first Premier League champions in history to lose the opening game of their title defence. After the match, Leicester’s Italian boss Claudio Ranieri praised Hull City saying “the better team won”.
Sunderland 1-2 Manchester City
Pep Guardiola got off to a winning start “with soul” to his era as Manchester City boss beginning his title chase in the England Premier League with a hard-fought 2-1 victory against Sunderland. Dangerous superstar striker Sergio Auguero opened the match scoring for City at four minutes 1-0. City went on to dominate throughout the tough game. Sunderland overcame their slow start against the mega-rich club when Jermain Defoe scored a clinical equalizer at 1-1.
On the other hand, David Moyes started his term as Sunderland boss with a loss due to a Paddy McNair own goal only minutes after coming on as a sub after Sunderland tied the match.
"It was gut-wrenching," said Moyes after the clash. "We'd done a great job in containing them as best we could; the players had done great. We knew we wouldn't get an awful lot of the ball, but we'd just about done the job. But just about is not enough."
"I realize how difficult it is," Guardiola said about Premier League football. "Definitely. We are not safe until the referee says 'Okay, go home.”
Manchester United 3-1 Bournemouth
Manchester United opened their England Premier League account with an exciting 3-1 victory away against Bournemouth with goals from Juan Mata, captain Wayne Rooney, and celebrity striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The Cherries only goal came from Adam Smith.
Jose Mourniho’s #10, Wayne Rooney, commented after the match about heading United's second goal.
"I've got nothing to prove to anyone," said Roo after the game: "I've played this game a long time. I believe in my ability. If I play the way I played today, I'll score goals."
Liverpool 4-3 FC Arsenal
Liverpool and Arsenal battled for a win to start their campaigns with Jurgen Klopp's Reds earning a hard-fought 4-3 victory over Arsene Wenger’s Gunners. Philippe Coutinho scored a brace and became the Premier League's top scorer to date.
