Dilly ding dilly dong the Premier League is back.
While the World Cup provided ample distraction during the off-season, there is nothing quite like club football and it really is wonderful to have it back.
This season promises to be an absolute humdinger with the likes of Liverpool and Manchester United desperately trying to find a way to catch last season’s runaway winners, Manchester City.
Pep Guardiola’s juggernaut was nigh on unstoppable at times last season and they will be looking to recreate that form again in this campaign.
However, there are bound to be some interesting results further down the table, especially from some of the newly promoted sides.
Wolves, in particular, have invested heavily in their playing staff and have even been tipped for a top half finish after their fantastic summer business.
Those new boys finally got their chance to get a taste of Premier League action when Wolves welcomed a sparkling new Everton side to Molineux.
And they got off to the worst possible start.
Everton were ahead inside 20 minutes and it looked like the Wanderers opening day party was soon to be spoiled.
Step up Ruben Neves
It was left to one of their star performers from last season to haul them back into the game and that is exactly what Ruben Neves did.
Phil Jagielka was shown a straight red card for a reckless challenge and Neves stepped up and drilled the resulting free-kick into the top corner.
It really was a sweet strike but some eagle-eyed fans took exception to the goal and with good reason.
As you can see there, Neves easily stole himself an extra five yards as he plonked the ball down nowhere near to where the actual foul had occurred.
It is a little difficult to believe that the referee didn’t notice such a substantial difference but Neves got away with it.
You can’t blame the Everton fans for being a little unimpressed with the referee’s work, though.
The game eventually ended 2-2 after a frantic second half as Wolves secured their first point in the Premier League for many a year.
Can’t beat that Premier League drama, can you?
