LONDON, England – Clubs made significant summer purchases, and several new players made an impact in the first round of matches. Read on to get the most advantageous insights in the upcoming matches. 

Aaron Ramsey, Arsenal

During Saturday’s postponed kickoff, Arsenal’s club-record acquisition made his league debut at the Emirates. Declan Rice put up a strong performance in the middle of the park, making four tackles and an interception. However, Mikel Arteta’s team made things more difficult for themselves toward the conclusion of their 2-1 victory over Nottingham Forest. Rice likewise had little trouble identifying his teammates, returning 91 passes with a success rate of 92.3%. He successfully recovered possession after winning the ball.

Brentford’s Mark Flekken

For Brentford, Flekken made four saves as they tied Spurs 2-2. Despite his limited ability to stop the two goals, the Dutchman proved why he was chosen to replace David Raya. Because of Raya’s distribution, Arsenal brought him in to compete with Aaron Ramsdale, but Flekken demonstrated that he can also choose a pass. Against Spurs, the 30-year-old played seven precise long balls, more than any other player on the field.

Spurs’ James Maddison

In their 2-2 draw with Brentford on Sunday, Tottenham had a direct hand in both of its goals. Only Eberechi Eze of Crystal Palace had seven vital passes in the first round of games, compared to Maddison’s six, and the summer acquisition assisted Cristian Romero and Emerson Royal. In addition to working hard on the field, the 26-year-old made one clearance, one interception, and one tackle in a stellar Spurs debut.

Pedro, Joo, Brighton

Pedro was Brighton’s most notable summer acquisition, and the Brazilian demonstrated why by scoring on his debut to help his new team defeat Premier League rookies Luton. With one of his four efforts on goal in the second half, the attacker gave the Seagulls their first Premier League goal with a penalty. The 21-year-old also performed admirably when not in possession, contributing two tackles to Brighton’s opening-weekend 4-1 victory.

Newcastle resident Sandro Tonali

Following his transfer from Milan to Newcastle last month, Tonali quickly won over supporters by scoring Newcastle’s first goal against Aston Villa in the sixth minute of the league opener. Before being substituted out to a rousing ovation late in the second half, the Italian was efficient in possession, connecting with a teammate on 48 of his 54 passes. It might be said that Newcastle has the strongest midfield in the Premier League now that Tonali is partnering with Bruno Guimares and Joelinton.

Aston Villa’s Moussa Diaby

Villa had a challenging weekend. The club lost to Newcastle 5-1 after Tyrone Mings sustained an injury that will likely keep him out for the remainder of the season. The performance of Moussa Diaby, who signed from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer, was a plus from the game, though. The club-record signing scored his first Premier League goal in just 10 minutes and was an absolute machine the entire time. He completed two dribbles and made two crucial passes to give Villa supporters some hope.
