HUDDERSFIELD, England -- Three thoughts on Chelsea's 3-0 win vs. Huddersfield in the Premier League.

1. Chelsea do enough to start with victory

Maurizio Sarri said this week that his Chelsea team might not play entirely as he wants until the second half of the season and, against Huddersfield, they certainly were not the whirling, fast-paced team of the new manager's ideals. As such, the fact they won 3-0 anyway is a good sign that the acclimatisation period might not be too calamitous.

For Arsene Wenger, the past lingers as he walks away from Arsenal

Arsene Wenger sees a bright future for his successor at Arsenal, thanks to the strong legacy he is leaving behind.

HUDDERSFIELD, England -- Nobody, on a day like this, could deny Arsene Wenger one little flight of fancy. He had walked into Huddersfield's John Smith's Stadium, his heart likely laden with more emotion than he would ever completely admit, and been greeted within seconds by a face that shaped his life.

"There was a photo in front of the dressing room where Herbert Chapman smiled at me," Wenger said, looking content with the thought. The circularity hit him profoundly: Here he was, one of football's...

What is wrong with Tottenham and Manchester United? Arsenal's farewell to Wenger

The weekend review salutes Huddersfield, Brighton and West Brom, while wondering just what is going on with Tottenham and Manchester United.

Goal of the weekend

There's often nothing like a shot that looks in from the moment it's hit. And perhaps because it was rather unexpected, Mark Noble's brilliant volley in West Ham's 2-0 win over Leicester was a classic of the genre. A great strike, and one that secured his club's Premier League status. Not a bad piece of work.

1. Tottenham keep the pressure on

Tottenham heaped the pressure on their top-four rivals with a comfortable win that was never really in doubt. Son's brilliant double either side of half-time moved Spurs into third, one point behind Manchester United and one clear of Liverpool, who host Newcastle in the late kickoff.
