What to look out for on the opening weekend of the Premier League

It’s not hard to work out why the television cameras are heading to Selhurst Park for their first live offering of the season tonight. Twelve months ago Sky also kicked off with Arsenal away to London neighbours and they were pretty dreadful in a 2-0 loss at Brentford.

Three successive defeats at the start of the season left them playing catch-up and April?s 3-0 reversal at Palace ? managed by legendary former Gunners midfielder Patrick Vieira ? triggered a late-season slump that cost Arsenal a Champions League spot.

The big summer signings of Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City have given Mikel Arteta?s squad an encouraging, fresh look even if manager-bater-in-chief Piers Morgan predictably remains an arch critic of the Spaniard.

The big match: Crystal Palace v Arsenal, Today, 8pm, Sky Sports

Jesus has scored seven pre-season goals ? including a hat-trick in last Saturday?s 6-0 victory over Sevilla ? just one fewer than his entire Premier League tally last term. With Martin Odegaard the new captain and rising stars Emile Smith Rowe, Bukayo Saka and Eddie Nketiah again ready to take centre stage, the wave of optimism surrounding Arsenal is understandable.

But pre-season will be forgotten once tonight?s game is under way and the Gunners can expect few favours from Vieira, whose emotions on the touchline during the 2-2 draw at the Emirates last season gave no hint of divided loyalties. Palace?s summer business has been more sensible than spectacular ? defensive midfielder Cheick Doucoure from Lens and Bayern Munich defender Chris Richards.

Conor Gallagher will be missed after returning to Chelsea but they have Eberechi Eze ? who missed most of last season with an Achilles injury ? and talisman Wilfried Zaha pulling the strings, as they did as a 4-2 win over Montpellier wrapped up pre-season.

Vieira certainly has plenty of credit in the bank among Palace fans. Last term?s 12th-place finish was on a par with predecessor Roy Hodgson, but the eye-catching way it was achieved was chalk and cheese.

Fulham v Liverpool, Saturday, 12.30pm, BT Sport

Adult tickets in home sections were priced £90 and £100 for this game. Welcome back to the Premier League, Fulham fans. They will be hoping it?s third time lucky and pride doesn?t come before a fall after Marco Silva?s side impressively won the Championship last season.

All eyes will be on whether Aleksandar Mitrovic can finally be prolific in the top flight and how much they miss teenager Fabio Carvalho, who is set to start on Liverpool?s bench given the attacking riches at Jurgen Klopp?s disposal.

Match stat: Liverpool’s last league defeat came at Leicester on December 28.

Tottenham v Southampton, Saturday, 3...
