EPL Review: Wolverhampton's David Jones and the Weekend's Top-Five Goals
The 2010-11 English Premier League campaign opened with a bang on Saturday and Sunday.
Chelsea opened its regular-season scoring account with six goals in a 6-0 drubbing of West Bromwich Albion.
Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City played to a tightly played and strong willed nil-nil draw.
And Arsenal came back on a late own-goal to earn a draw at home side Liverpool.
But there were also some terrific goals scored in the EPL's opening weekend.
Here are five of the best.
5. Aston Villa's Stillian Petrov V. West Ham
A fantastic on-rushing header from Stillian Petrov, left, put Aston Villa up two on West Ham. They later added a third for a 3-0 win on Saturday.
4. Alex Baptiste of Blackpool V. Wigan
Alex Baptiste of Blackpool scored from an incredible, wide angle to complete the scoring in his side's shocking 4-0 road victory over Wigan.
The Premiership new boys, considered by many to be the likeliest side to get sent down, scorched Wigan in their opener, prompting their visiting fans to shout "Bring on the Arsenal!" Blackpool travels to the Emirates next weekend.
3. Didier Drogba of Chelsea vs. West Bromwich Albion
Defending EPL leading scorer Didier Drogba scored a hat trick to open his 2010-11 goal-scoring account in the Blues' 6-0 thrashing of West Bromwich Albion.
His first goal, by far the prettiest of the three, came on a long free kick that burst through a West Brom wall and beat goalkeeper Scott Carson to the near side. The tally gave the Blues a 2-0 advantage just before the half, a lead they'd build on in the second frame.
2. David N'Gog of Liverpool v. Arsenal
