PAOK v Chelsea: Goals galore in Greece

Chelsea have won all five of their Premier League matches under the Italian ahead of their clash with PAOK.

Both Chelsea and Liverpool maintained their ideal starts to the English top-flight season with wins over Cardiff and Tottenham respectively, while West Ham climbed off the bottom of the table with a 3-1 success away to Everton that gave them a first league victory under manager Manuel Pellegrini. We think it might be slightly more but we shouldn't expect all 11 players to be different from the weekend.

Such is the febrile atmosphere of the Premier League, there was speculation that new West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini, despite being given £100 million ($129 million) to spend on players in pre-season, might be sacked after starting the campaign with a run of four straight defeats.

The game between the Premier League champions and FA Cup winners is the traditional season curtain-raiser but on this evidence the gap between the two teams, which last season was 30 points, is as wide as ever despite the arrival of Maurizio Sarri as Chelsea manager and the signing of midfielder Jorginho.

"You can score 40 goals", Sarri recalled telling the winger.

Chelsea, who were without Eden Hazard, took 25 minutes to even register a shot and seldom threatened and it was no surprise when Aguero added a second from a Bernardo Silva pass just before the hour after having just spurned a clearer chance.

After the game, Sarri agreed with assertions that Hazard might now be the best player in Europe. The 32-year-old put in a brilliant defensive display as Liverpool beat Tottenham at Wembley. "I don't care that he wasn't great (in Saturday's 2-1 loss to Liverpool)".

However, the visitors had to see out a nervy final few seconds when Erik Lamela skillfully volleyed home from a narrow angle and Son Heung-min had a penalty appeal waived away with the final attack of the game.

When Tottenham plays Inter Milan in the Champions League on Tuesday, Harry Kane will have a point to prove. Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino scored either side of halftime past Michel Vorm, who was deputizing for injured goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

Mourinho wasn't completely satisfied. It then took David de Gea's fingertips save from Abdoulaye Doucoure's header to ensure United claimed a third victory of the campaign.

"In the period he didn't play, we never doubted Leroy's quality", said Guardiola.
