Premier League title contenders: BBC pundits first impressions

Champions Manchester City and big summer http://www.redskinsonlineofficialstore.com/ADAM-HAYWARD-JERSEY-CHEAP.html spenders Arsenal and Liverpool all enjoyed victories on the opening weekend. But the big spotlight was on how decorated Dutch manager Louis van Gaal would fare in the his first league match in charge of Manchester United. BBC football pundits share their first impressions of all four of the title challengers. The first game: Louis van Gaal's first league game in charge of Manchester United sees his team stumble to a 2-1 defeat at home by Swansea. Having finished seventh last season, the 20-time champions have already spent almost £60m on bringing in England full-back Luke Shaw and Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera and hired a new manager - will that be enough to make them title challengers again? Former Newcastle and England striker Alan Shearer: "As poor a result as that was, it could be a blessing. It says to the money men they need three world-class players and big money needs to be spent to get back into top four, never mind challenge for the championship. They left it so late to sign players last season, they were found wanting. "Whether they were playing three, four or five at the back they weren't good enough against the Welsh side." Former Red Devils player and coach Phil Neville: "Manchester United's defeat by Swansea didn't surprise me. This is a team that finished seventh last season and were without nine players. Yesterday only confirmed that United need to invest and invest well." Former Netherlands midfielder and Chelsea manager Ruud Gullit: "Fellow Dutchman Van Gaal has a big job. The Premier League is different. You can see during the game the United players were thinking about where they had to be. When he played 3-5-2 for Netherlands it was necessity because we had bad defenders. He played 4-3-3 at Ajax, Barcelona and Bayern Munich, but always played attacking football. It was a surprise he played 3-5-2 to start with against Swansea, but then he changed it. If you were a Swansea player would you have been afraid of that line-up?" Former Manchester City defender Danny Mills: "They're miles off the Champions League. I made my predictions that United will do well to finish fifth if they make signings. The quality simply is not there. Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Juan Mata yes, but what is behind them? "Executive vice-president Ed Woodward took an awful lot of flak last year for not getting the signings in. Surely they are not going to make the same mistake again?" Former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy: "They had injuries for this game, but they haven't replaced their big characters like Ryan Giggs, Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand yet. The quality they bring now is imperative. It will cost them a lot of money." Social media reaction Jamaica's Olympic sprint champion Usain Akeem JordanKids Jersey Bolt and United fan: It's not how you start it's how you finish..long season ahead of us..let's get it together lads Former Manchester City player Rodney Marsh: Burnley already 3 places above Manchester United The first game: It was a struggle at times for Arsene Wenger's Arsenal, but some good fortune late in the game gave them a 2-1 opening-day victory against Crystal Palace. Midfielder Aaron Ramsey, whose goals helped the Gunners lead the league for much of the first half of last season, scored the winner in stoppage time. Shearer: "Arsenal got the result, but they didn't play well - Palace frustrated them. They made so many errors from their big players. It was poor from them. Normally Arsenal's passing is crisp and sharp, but the big positive thing is they kept going. Surely they can't play as poorly as this for a long time. "Ramsey is a £40m player now. He was a guy they missed more than anything last season (when he was injured in December 2013 and out for three months). If they keep him and the vast majority fit they will have a right good go at the title. I've been impressed with their summer signings, particularly Chile forward Alexis Sanchez. They have to get better results against the big teams than they managed last season." Gullit: "This is a good time to win games in a bad way - it's a good sign. I hope for Arsenal they can battle for the title for as long as possible." Former Tottenham and England striker Gary Lineker: "If Arsenal are to challenge for the title, you can talk about signing a strong midfielder, but it's a top-class striker they need most." Murphy: "They are not only technically gifted as a team, but they also have very physical and powerful players. New Brazilian midfield signing Fernando was absolutely immense against Newcastle. To have Fernandinho and Fernando in the middle could be important in the bigger games. "Of the contenders we've seen so far, City looked the most comfortable. You look at their bench on Sunday - they had Jesus Navas, Fernandinho, James Milner and Sergio Aguero. It doesn't take a genius to work out that City and Chelsea will be the teams to beat." Neville: "Fernando was someone I watched http://www.redskinsonlineofficialstore.com/ART-MONK-JERSEY-CHEAP.html last season - almost Claude Makelele-like. He loves defending. There were some great performances, but he was probably the best. However, apart from the two goals, City didn't create too many good chances." Ex-Celtic boss Neil Lennon: "I just love watching David Silva play, he's so easy on the eye and sometimes I think he has eyes in the back of his head with the way he brings others into the game. Newcastle created some really good chances, but it's the old adage that it's what happens in the two boxes."
