Premier League 2019/20: 8 Big Takeaways From Gameweek Two

More drama and history made in London.

Premier League

With week one of the new Premier League season officially in the books, it made for a tough act to follow for week two. With a total of ten goals from the first two games alone, fans were eager to see if the explosive start to the year would continue.

After Liverpool and Chelsea competed for 120 minutes plus penalties for the European Super Cup in mid-week, gameweek two didn't quite hit the ground running in the same fashion as week one. While Liverpool opened the season with a 4-1 demolition of Norwich, Arsenal and Burnley opened the second set of games with a far cagier affair.

That's not to say it was a bad game by any means, and through the next nine games there were plenty of goals, plenty of drama, and of course, a heavy influence from the Video Assistant Referee.

Most teams in the league right now are not where they want to be, but for Arsenal and Liverpool, as the only two teams to win both of their opening games, so far so good. As always, however, there were big things happening all across the country, across all ten games, this week in the Premier League.
