Stoke punished as Man City make Shawcross and Wollscheid wobble

ESPN FC's Craig Burley looks back at Stoke's defeat at home to Manchester City.

Manchester City's 4-1 win at Stoke on Saturday arguably flattered the visitors but the result was a fair one with the home side largely the architects of their own downfall.

Referee Mike Dean ensured he was a hot topic of conversation by applying the new rules around holding in the penalty area to the letter, with each side being punished and rewarded with a spot kick.

1. Guardiola revolution looks strong

Guardiola maintained his 100 percent start to his Manchester City career as his side came away from a potentially difficult trip to Stoke with all three points.

It looked like it would be a routine victory when Sergio Aguero, who missed two penalties in City's 5-0 Champions League playoff win over Steaua Bucharest in midweek, fired them ahead in the 27th minute from the spot....

Mark Hughes' Stoke an early test of Pep Guardiola's title credentials

Stoke boss Mark Hughes gave his reaction to his side's draw at Middlesbrough.

Having secured their first point of the new season in a 1-1 draw away at Middlesbrough on the opening day, it's back to the home comforts of the bet365 Stadium for Stoke, who welcome a reinvigorated Manchester City side to town this Saturday.

There's never a good time to play one of the favourites for the title but with their penchant for starting the season slowly, the Potters face a particularly tough test on this occasion. It doesn't help the visitors have found a fresh lease of life under new...

Champions Leicester face last season's runners-up Arsenal this weekend in a match that could give fans some early clues in the title race. 

Elsewhere, the first Friday night match of the new season sees Jose Mourinho's home debut as Manchester United manager in the Premier League, with Southampton looking to spoil the party with a third win in succession at Old Trafford.

Xherdan Shaqiri magic saves Stoke at Middlesbrough on opening day

Stoke boss Mark Hughes was optimistic following his side's draw with Middlesbrough.

Stoke kicked off their latest campaign with a 1-1 draw against Premier League new-boys Middlesbrough in a game with relatively few clear-cut chances for either side.

The hosts had the best of the first half as they showcased their enthusiasm and desire to win every ball they contested. Having struggled to break down their resolute defence in open play, it was Xherdan Shaqiri who spared the Potters' blushes with a moment of magic, scoring his side's first direct free kick goal in nearly three years...

Mourinho's Premier League experience makes Man United the team to beat

The ESPN FC crew debate which team will win the 2016-17 Premier League trophy.

Manchester United's summer spending spree looks like money well spent and gives them a strong chance of regaining former glories. In a heavyweight championship of top managers, Jose Mourinho is the one with the course and distance form in England, and that might prove to be the difference.

Here are my club-by-club thoughts ahead of the new Premier League season.

Arsenal: They have the quality, but continued failures to deliver make you wonder about the mentality and leadership in the squad. With...
