We present the best players of the premier league Day 1
This is a tough pick, but Mignolet won the race over Asmir Begovic of Stoke City and Allan McGregor of Hull City. Like McGregor, he saved a penalty and Begovic might have made more saves, but unlike the two, he ended in a winning a team and made two spectacular saves - a nice dive to his right to save Jonathan Walters' penalty and a terrific response to stop Kenwright Jones follow-up - to give his side an important and morale boosting 3 points and preserve his clean sheet
One of only two players to score a goal and assist another throughout the league, the other being Steven Whitaker. He beat Whitaker to the spot because he made more contribution attacking and defending well over the line. Also his goal was not because of luck, unlike Whitaker, providing the assist for Ross Barkley and arriving late but at the right time in the 6-yard box to fire home the Toffee's second
Patrice EvraPick him over Anthony Luna because of the way he responded to the rumor surrounding Man Utd bid for Leighton Baines. With his performance, it begs the question of 'why fix it if its not broken? Arguably one of his team most consistent players last season and was involved in everything positive in their dismissal of Swansea.
The Serbian rock is back after a stop and start 2012/2013 season and showed why he was missed during his knee injury ravaged season. He did well against the speed and physicality of Wilfred Bony and the technicality of Michu.
What a game to have your debut, a 4-0 demolition of Newcastle with the £30m summer acquisition whose central midfield partnership with Yaya Toure was looking hugely promising
Daniel SturridgeAnother Liverpudlian in the team. Danny secured the victory with a fine first-half strike from outside the penalty area. The 23year old was lively throughout, linking well with fellow attackers Phillipe Coutinho and Iaogo Aspas in the absence of suspended/want-away talisman Luis Suarez.
Robin van der goal is back and he does not look like someone who has any intention of letting his standard drop just because of Sir Alex Ferguson departure.
We saw it last season and he have started doing it again this season. Agbonlahor is a BEAST with speed (powerful and fast). He had an exemplary game creating the first and second goal. Arsenal simply couldn't provide ann answer to his direct running and electric pace.
Special shoutout to some players who missed the selection: Oscar, Huddlestone, Luna, Whitaker, Welbeck.
