Swansea slip to surprise defeat as Hull continue to shock Premier League

Swansea coach Francesco Guidolin says his side didn't deserve to lose against Hull.

Hull spoiled Swansea's home opener in the Premier League with a 2-0 win on Saturday.

Some familiar problems resurfaced for Swansea. With Hull defending both narrowly and deep, the Swans could not find a way to turn a significant possession advantage into clear-cut chances on goal. With Borja Baston unable to play through injury, coach Francesco Guidolin had few options to change the Swans' attack after a solid first half display produced no goals. A frustrating second half saw diminishing returns...

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.

Sigurdsson to return to Swansea XI vs. Hull before schedule takes tough turn

Francesco Guidolin says playing against Burnley to start their season was always going to be a tough task.
Swansea City claimed all three points over Burnley in their opening match of the season via a Leroy Fer header from close range.

With an opening weekend victory over Burnley in the bag, Swansea will look to get maximum points from a visiting Hull City side that surprised defending champions Leicester last week.

The Swans' schedule takes a tough turn beyond this weekend, with games against Leicester, Chelsea, Southampton, Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal to look forward to during what must be one of the most demanding stretches of the season. Going into those games with a solid six-point buffer will help take the pressure...

Fernando Llorente shows glimpses of quality in Swansea's scrappy win

Francesco Guidolin gave his reaction after Swansea's win at Burnley.

Individual quality eventually made the difference for Swansea during a scrappy 1-0 win at Burnley in their season opener. The Swans occasionally struggled to find their flow, and it's clear coach Francesco Guidolin's new-look team will need a couple more weeks to properly gel.

Last season, this kind of game might have ended goalless. This time, Swansea found a way to win an ugly game. That bodes well for the rest of the season.

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...

REIGNING CHAMPIONS & TITLE CHALLENGERS


LEICESTER: Leicester City are the defending Premier League champions. And that sentence still takes some getting used to. Now, they're the team to beat and Claudio Ranieri's men must balance a title defence with Champions League football. Read >> -- Ben Jacobs
