EPL: Rating the Top 10 New Signings Based on Their Opening Match

The Premier League season has finally got underway after three months starved of football. Apart from Euro 2012 and the Olympics, that is.

One of the most enjoyable things about a new campaign kicking off is finally getting to see all the new signings in competitive action for the first time. A good performance on opening day can announce a player's arrival in style, while a poor debut can see a reputation sustain damage that can take months or even years to restore, if ever.

It was certainly a mixed bag for the 10 debutants listed here, but we must remember that this is only the opening salvo of a long, nine-month campaign.

We must try to avoid jumping to conclusions on the basis of a maximum of 90 of playing time, no matter how tempting that is, so don't pay too much attention to the arbitrary marks out of 10 awarded here.
