EPL Round Up of the first weekend of 2016.

The English premier league today recorded morale boosting wins for Arsenal and Manchester United as they both won on home turf. The most significant win was that of Manchester United with van Gaal unable to win against Swansea since taking over the reins at Old Trafford. Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney scored the goals against a very dogged Swansea side who fought till the last minute ensuring United's title push suffered no more incongruity.


Meanwhile WestHam defeated Liverpool 2-0, Arsenal won Newcastle 2-0 while Leicester City and Bournemouth played out a draw. Manchester City defeated Watford 2-1 while Norwich beat Southampton by a lone goal.
Also on Sunday, Chelsea FC looked to have bounced back after a disappointing start to the season with a 0-3 away win to Crystal Palace and Diego Costa, Willians and Oscar all in the score sheet. This is their first win under their new coach; Guus Hiddink.
And finally, Tottenham see their very spirited display at the Goddison Park only giving them a share of points against a disciplined Everton.
Table of the EPL as it stands: Chelsea have moved out of the relegation zone.
