Premier League 2013/14: Five reasons to get excited

Published Add your comment

GiveMeSport contributor Joe Roberts has listed his top five things to look out for in the opening weeks of this season's Premier League...

1. Manager sackings

It wouldn't be the Premier League without a few sackings in the first weeks of the season. With David Moyes, Manuel Pellegrini, Roberto Martinez and Jose Mourinho all settling into their new jobs there is bound to be some early dismissals. In such a competitive league, a poor start could lead to angry fans and controversial board decisions early on.

2. Paolo Di Canio's celebrations 

We caught a glimpse of what is to come from Paolo Di Canio towards the end of last season. With Sunderland making some good signings, there will be more over-the-top celebrations from Di Canio.

3. New signings

As with every window there has been comings and goings in the Premier League. This transfer window it seems there has been more transfers than ever before and this weekend will be the first time we get to see them in action. Stevan Jovetic, Wilfried Bony and Ricky Van Wolfswinkel will all be hoping to score on their Premier League debuts.

4. Goal-line technology

For the first time, goal-line technology will be used in the Premier League this weekend. This will reduce controversy and Hawk-Eye replays will add excitement for fans.

5. The 'Special-One'

Jose Mourinho is back at Chelsea and will hope to get the first win of the season against Hull on Sunday. Expect a great reception for the 'Special-One' as he returns to Stamford Bridge.
