LONDON -- Three quick thoughts from Liverpool's 1-0 Premier League win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Monday.

1. Liverpool withstand tough test at Palace

The Premier League needs a strong Liverpool this season. We're only two games in, but Manchester City seem to have improved since last term, absurdly, while the other main challengers are either in flux or have significant points of weakness. If there's to be any sort of title race, Liverpool have to be at it from the start.

Real Madrid will benefit from improved defence over replacing Ronaldo

The FC panel answer your tweets on whether Zinedine Zidane could save Manchester United and if Neymar is still the biggest name at PSG.
A goal and an assist from Gareth Bale against Getafe got Julen Lopetegui's side off to a perfect start in La Liga.

MADRID -- Real Madrid beat Getafe 2-0 on Sunday night at the Santiago Bernabeu with the visiting team unable to register a single shot on target until late in the game. Keylor Navas remains the team's first-choice goalkeeper despite the arrival of Thibaut Courtois during the summer, and while Getafe showed little interest in attacking until they went two goals down, Real Madrid were assured in their defensive duties.

All in all, with an emphasis on fixing the attack, it seems that Julen Lopetegui...

BRIGHTON, England -- Three points on Brighton 3-2 Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

1. Jose Mourinho warning appears true

Jose Mourinho said this season would be tough for Manchester United, but he probably did not expect to be proved right quite so quickly.

Through the summer and during the first week of the new Premier League season, he has painted a bleak picture of United's prospects. Even a 2-1 win over Leicester on opening night did little to improve his mood.

"I...

LONDON -- Strip it all back -- the new managers, new systems and the respective ownership issues at Chelsea and Arsenal -- and this season is about one thing and one thing only for both clubs -- getting back into the UEFA Champions League.

Having finished fifth and sixth respectively last season, Chelsea and Arsenal will spend this campaign on the outside looking in when the elite contest the Champions League, so Maurizio Sarri has clearly made a better start than Unai Emery in the race to seal...

The Cristiano Ronaldo era at Juventus begins with a dramatic last-gasp winner from Federico Bernardeschi.

VERONA, Italy -- The whooshing rotor blades gave it away; the helicopter overhead could mean only one thing. Juventus fans have learned to associate Cristiano Ronaldo with them. A month ago, the club's president, Andrea Agnelli, boarded one for Greece to shake hands with the five-time Ballon d'Or winner on his move to Juventus. Now, one belonging to the local police hovered overhead as the Juventus bus, designed by Agnelli's playboy cousin Lapo Elkann, weaved its way into Verona.

LONDON -- Three points on Chelsea 3-2 Arsenal at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

1. Chaos as Arsenal and Emery suffer

There was chaos on both sides, a rare display of Arsenal tenacity and Chelsea defending like a team that had forgotten how to operate a back four. But in the end, it was the same old story, with Arsenal losing against one of their top six rivals.
