Gary Neville, Alan Pardew and Graeme Souness were on Nissan Super Sunday to analyse Tottenham v Newcastle and Manchester United v West Ham.
Tottenham kicked the day off with a 2-0 win at Newcastle as the Magpies’ top-flight return was sullied by Jonjo Shelvey’s red card.
Rafa Benitez’s side had delivered a disciplined first-half display until Shelvey lost his soon after the restart, treading on Dele Alli’s ankle in front of the referee to leave a side that had already lost two players to injuries facing an even sterner task.
Alli made Shelvey’s team-mates pay, meeting a Christian Eriksen cross at the back post in the 61st minute, and Ben Davies slotted a second soon after to secure victory.
Romelu Lukaku scored twice to help Manchester United beat West Ham 4-0 in the second part of the double header.
Lukaku netted either side of half-time before Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba completed the scoring against slow-starting West Ham, who lost their opening Premier League game of the season for the 11th time.
